Che was a left wing Marxist guerrilla who has been lionized by the world-wide left. Responsible for the torture and execution of over 50 people, he died forgotten and alone in the Peruvian jungle surrounded by six die-hard followers. That famous image of him has graced many dorm rooms and tee shirts over the years.

Yes, an incredibly fictionalized, sentimentalized, romanticized and hagiographic picture of Che, the killer.

Marxists involved with trials that "were questioned on their fairness? To quote Claude Raines "I am shocked! Shocked!
It has been portrayed in the US that the pre-castro government was wonderful and lovely in every single way. Well, not true.
It was wonderful and lovely in every single way towards american interests. American companies got to exploit the people of Cuba, while the politicians in Cuba got rich.
What usually happens when a rich country uses a poor country in it's "interests" (note, SHORT term interests), the people of the poor country get sick and tired of the crap, some form of revolution gets started, the rich people get outta there ASAP, and some crappy dictator or the likes of it takes over.
If only the superpowers hadn't been trying to exploit people as much as possible, there wouldn't be as much crap in the world today.
