In Miami there seems to have been a crackdown decades ago on honest and ethical Cuban politicians , as close to none can be found.

<quEl chancho"(so called by his fellows due to his odor similar to boiled kidneys, due to his poor hygiene and lack of bathing or showering) che guevara was the communist pig that gave the firing squad to many innocent Cubans and took great delight in doing so. He was a racist and particularly enjoyed humiliating the Cuban negroes & mulatoes as well as the native Amerindian Mexicans whom he despised and made no effort to conceal while he was in Mexico.
Since he was a commander just like fidel, and was bolder than fidel, he enjoyed great power. fidel did not like the competition so he send him off on mission to Bolivia, where he was killed as fidel expected. This gave the revolution a martyr, while removing the competition, as well as producing an icon for the revolution.
It is said by those that found che, that he said: "Don't shoot, don't shoot I'm che & I'm worth more alive than dead, don't shoot" The soldiers that found him laughed & told him to say his last prayers, he cursed God, begged, cried, made offers to his captors, whined, wet his pants, soiled his pants, sobbed, BANG! Justice was done!
He who had killed so many, and took so much delight in doing it, died like the coward he was!
Good riddance, the stinking "chancho" is dead!
**********What few people know is that while he claimed the title Doctor while he lived in Cuba, he never graduated from Medical School. The reason his fellow revolutionaries called him "che" was originally to denigrate him, because they refused to call him doctor or commandante, since those close to him looked down on him. The nickname stuck, and since in the Cuban jargon the word is unknown, it readily identified him. The people of Argentina use this word very liberally just as the Americans use the word "dude" or "man" or "guy". The myth is that he was a guerrilla expert, facts are that he never, not once, carried out a successful guerrilla activity..
Exactly!

The people who left Cuba when the Castro Revolution was successful, were of the same persuasion as the cowardly dictator, Batista. He was a brutal leader, who inflicted torture and murder upon the peasants' and farmers', who were brave enough to stand up against this despot. The Batista-followers who left Cuba, feared reprisal from the new Castro Government, for their despicable activities under Batista's leadership. These people, who have taken up residence in Miami,(and now, also in Tampa), were the real scum of the Cuban population, at that time.
They try to bad-mouth everything that Castro,(or Cuba), does. Cuba is lucky to be rid of them. People, like the liars', Rubio, and Ilena-Ros, for example. The young people,(the internet-savy, sons and daughters of these poeple, are smarter than their fathers' and grandfathers', and, as the results of the last election showed,(where the Republicans were wiped out in Florida), are not going to swallow the B.S. of their elders any more. They are citizens of the world, and they know what it's all about, and what is going on.
The 50-plus-year embargo, supported by the Miami-Cuban-Batista-Mafia politicions,(who dispensd the only available information that the average American is exposed to,- Canadians' as well), are now in the opposition. They can embellish all the stories they want, but the party in power will be able to dispense the truth regarding Cuba, and its Leadership,(and hopefully, cancel this foolish blockade). This US Embargo on Cuba, is a 'A Monument to Stupidity', that will remain in the American history books, for all to see, for years to come. All because of false information, supplied to the US Congress, and the President, by the Batista-Supporting, Miami-Cuban-Batista-Mafia crowd. Anyone who supports Batista, et al, will be,(in my opinion), a thieving, Lying, Scoundral.

Quote:Batista was a brutal dictator, working together with US organized crime bosses. Castro led a popular revolt and greatly improved the lives or ordinary Cubans. Guns are not that rare in Cuba since the revolution. When Cuban exiles & US forces tried to get ordinary Cuban citizens to revolt against their government, they were NOT supportive.

You Canada folks are liberal trash just like Euro liberal treash and other lib filth from the old Soviet block.

In America we know how to deal with you and stop your anti-American , pro communist rants .

People like you and few others here could be a threat to our national security and must be questioned.

Well said!
The Miami-Cubans, Babalu Blog, etc. will have a hard time disputing the truth of your statements. They will try, with senseless rambling rhetoric that is totally irrelevent but those of us who read the history of Che, realize what a great leader he was. The American CIA, can shoulder the burden for his demise You Know about America - THE BULLY, OF ALL THE FREE-THINKING WORLD.

Che was an ideologue and a crazed man who thought he was Robbin Hood who wanted to steal from good hard working white Cubans and give to lazy goons and people who did not even believe in Christ.

The CIA had no option but to hunt him down and kill him.

I realky won't waste my time but I will ask you the following question!
Isn't it true that che shoot to dead some of his guerrillas men when they tied to surrendered to the Bastista soldiers and calked them traitors too?
Didn't the Bolivian Communist Party and Fidrl Castro didn't even helped che or send him arms etc when che was in Bolivia?
Its it true that che failed in Congo and didn't fight to the end?
Isn't it true that che didn't fight (hasta la victoria siempre????) to death and surrendered to the Bolivian Army and was killed a day AFTER his surrendal?

Your ability to NOT know what your government is up to is astounding. Just because I don't believe what America does, or doesn't, say, doesn't make me a terrorist. If more Americans would start to investigate what your government does around the world, they would start asking questions of their elected officials too. YOUR governments actions, are the ones that are a threat to your national security The awful things that they do, and try to hide,(like the many detention facilities that they have hidden in manyforeign countries around the world so they can torture other human beings without having the 'Geneva Convention Rules', being applied because the detention facilities are not located in the USA.

You had better start ordering American-sized Body bags right now if that's the way that you think. We're not like American's, who shoot all the leaves off the tree, then the sniper. We are all trained from infancy to shoot one shot, and then bring home the game.
There are a lot more of you, than there are of us, of course. but your boys are not ready to die, are they? Whereas we are brought-up in the countryside, and can fend for ourselves quite well in that environment - Winter AND Summer. so don't talk stupid just do some reading, like wikipedia or Google, under the title,'Invasions by the United States', or United States Experiments regarding the Van Allen Belt'. I could go on for hours regarding the awful things the US has done with its HAARP Experimental Station in Alaska or Whatever! They are the Bullies of the Free World - usually on smaller nations who can't defend themselves, or are outgunned by the USA. Right now they are trying to encircle China with their missle basses or Military Bases. All this is happening at the expense of YOU THE TAXPAYER, as the US gets closer and closer to banlruptcy. Keep up the good work USA!

He was a qualified doctor, an intellectual author, political theorist and an impressive orator, and debator, so hardly a crazed man.

Though I agree he became a bit stupid in his later campaigns
trusting too much in others, there was also infighting in bolivia among different leaders wanting there own versions, so a lack of unity as well as lack of numbers leading to his death, he was betrayed by some traitor bolivian recruits who reported his presence to the bolivian army, who then were able to ambush and kill most of his fledgling group. It was the bolivian traitors that destroyed them,not the cia if they had not of done that, they would of had time to build a larger group.He also failed to get enough recruits, due to the infighting and his foolish trust of his bolivian comrades. So was hugely outnumbered, was caught and murdered in bolivia. Though his motivations were always to help the poor wanting to get better rights and conditions for the the poor of latin america and later on africa also. The reason why he gave up wealth, family, a nice house and job to pursue more rights for the latin american poor through revolution, and confronting the government forces, which is the hardest, most dangerous way, shows what a unique, courageous and unselfish man he was,as we all know there are many people today who are the opposite totally selfish and materialistic.
The cias role is overated, it was the bolivian traitors and a lack of unity,numbers and planning,that caused there group to fail

It was bolivian soldiers who killed che as well as the other members of the group. Who knows maybe castro ordered him there, the reason why he left a stable life in cuba is still discussed today it did did seem rushed to me and not very well planned, but it goes to show the power of traitors to destroy people, as it was bolivian traitors and bolivian soldiers who killed che not the CIA. Those involved in his death have all since died themselves

Was it not Bolivian soldiers, dissidents, insurgents and jackals, financed by SOME branch of the CIA, that dispatched Che. The information I managed to glean of his history, would suggest this fact. Maybe I have been misinformed. don from Canada

I myself am very proud that the CIA helped finance and hunt down Che and do not shy away from it. I only wish they would do more of it now to those who speak ill about our great country.
