Default How do you view Che Guevara?

A symbol of freedom and revolution or a murderer?

a little bit of both.

If you are interested in Che you should watch Carlos (2010).

One of Ghandi's fasts led to massacres of The Untouchables. So murderer would go with him as well.

"To this I must point out that, while Che did indeed execute people [an episode I have gone into at length in my book] I have yet to find a single credible source pointing to a case where Che executed 'an innocent'. Those persons executed by Guevara or on his orders were condemned for the usual crimes punishable by death at times of war or in its aftermath: desertion, treason or crimes such as rape, torture or murder. I should add that my research spanned five years, and included anti-Castro Cubans among the Cuban-American exile community in Miami and elsewhere." - Jon Lee Anderson

biased researcher, completely ignoring eye witness accounts from cubans living on cuba and ones in miami because they are "biased" and Jon Lee Anderson wants to paint Che as latin Jesus.

Of which you bring none to the table, just like usual. Slow day at the comic book store, eh?

An easier road to college ***** is memorizing a few lines of any Neruda poem, You get that desired counter-culture image, and females will think you're well-read.
