Che Guevara the Revolutionist, Patron of Freedom Fighters

"Cruel leaders are replaced only to have new leaders turn cruel." - Che Guevara

I won't blame you if you don't know or haven't heard of the revolutionist. I can't elaborate much because my knowledge in World History is taking a beating and my friend hasn't been able to pass me his textbook for me to review and send for photocopy.



But to get you familiarized with him, do watch the attached documentary. You'll be able to understand why the Cuban Missile War, the CIA-led overthrow of the then-president of Cuba and his fighting for a revolution are heavily interconnected.

  2. El Che is a true revolutionist. He fights to topple corrupt powers rather than staying in power. Sadly, most young people nowadays only know him as an icon for the rebellious youth..

    1. CL, perhaps it's because Uncle Sam didn't want the younger generation to know the truth about Che Guevara. He didn't want Uncle Sam to interfere with the Cuban politics of that time and teamed up with Fidel Castro to opposite the States, but he is one historical figure.
