    There will never be a final word on Che. I think he truly wanted to right social wrongs, but he was a fanatic, inspired perhaps more by hatred and resentment. I think his flaw was that he was more preoccupied with exacting revenge against imperialist oppressors than he was with maximizing the welfare of the people he was (sometimes) seeking to liberate.

    That moment you realize all this could have been avoided had America never been involved with affairs outside its border .

    I believe Che Guevara had good intentions but went about reaching those goals the wrong way. I am someone who doesn't support violence, so I think a more peaceful route would have been better. I wouldn't say Che was a hero, but I also wouldn't go and call him a villain. He was somewhere in-between.

    This is great. Put Communists on trial? What about how US put arms in the hands of Nicaraguan youth , their unwanted activity in Vietnam?
    Guevara is ine of the most respected revolutionary leaders of all time.
    People can understand Communism only when they leave the superficial Captilistic regime USA is spreading throughout the world like poisonous Chlorine gas to increase their coffers.
    Put Ronald Reagan on trial, George Bush on trial, even Obama whose crimes wouldn't have been known if not for Snowden.

    Che Guevera would have saved Central America from the economic quagmire that now reigns in the region, an area dominated by corruption, tyranny, drugs, and violence. He would have turned it into a workers paradise that would have eventually been exploited by the United States for a cheap labor source rather than its current reliance on China. The CIA killed a supporter of American capitalism, not a Marxist isolationist.

    So when we see him from the future, obviously, we see him in bad light.
    And deserverly so.

    Guevara also advocated for nuclear war against the United States, saying that “the people you see today tell you that even if they should disappear from the face if the earth because an atomic war is unleashed in their names... they will feel completely happy and fulfilled.”
    Yeah, happy and fulfilled while they lay dying in ditches of third-degree burns and radiation poisoning while Guevara hid in a bunker somewhere safe. He was no hero of the people. He wanted them to throw their lives away for his revolution.
