I give you 5 stars for bringing up the subject however I'm sure there are a lot of people in Cuba who would disagree with your views about Che Guevara. For one all the people who had family members executed by Che. The Cubans who called him an 'assassin' and whose economy was wrecked by Che and Castro, or authors like Humberto Fontova who wrote "Exposing The Real Che Guevara and the Useful Idiots Who Idolize him." Che hated America, executed many without even the sham trials Stalin gave his victims and was a hopeless military leader in Bolivia and elsewhere. Castro sent him overseas to get rid of him and when he was deservedly shot as he'd executed so many in the same fashion Castro made a martyr out of him. People are Useful Idiots if they wear "Che Guevara" tee shirts in the streets with no idea of who the man really was. Ask a Cuban who he was don't ask Robert Redford or Benecio Del Toro.
