"Che" Guevara: The Importance of Being Earnest

In 1959, Ernesto "Che" Guevara oversaw and/or participated in the execution of 15,000 Cubans without due process and in contravention of the Cuban Constitution which abolished the death penalty in 1940. Cuba's population in 1959 was 6 million, which means that Guevara murdered 1 out of every 400 Cubans. 99% of his victims were adult men (though he also executed women and children on ocassion). In respect to just the male population of the island (3 million), Guevara killed 1 out of every 200 Cuban men. And, mark you, that's how many Cubans were killed in the first year of Castroism. There have now been 48 more though none as bloody as that first one.

If Guevara (or, rather, some Guevara clone) were to unleash his Reign of Terror here, killing in exactly the same proportion, it would cost 750,000 Americans their lives.

As a frame of reference, less than 200 individual rebels were killed in the course of the revolution that brought Fidel Castro and "Che" Guevara to power.

Che the argentinian Mengele, sickening how people walk around with his likeness on t shirts, even more sickening the defacing of the Cuban Flag with that murderer's face on it at Obama's Houston headquarter, does not the 1940 constitution forbid the defacing of the flag? well that one was the worst I've ever seen.

I am sure I will read about Fifo's death somewhere else, before you post anything about it on your site.
Thank you, Gomihead, I rather read it anywhere else, but except in your blog. What and where I read ,is a matter of preference. Do you know what I mean, Vern?

Agustin te batearon duro en Triangle, no le cojas miedo a Obama

Gomihead,
being attacked by the Cuban Triangle is an honor for me. It only confirms that I am on the right track. The commenters there such as Leftside and Alex, are known by their positions to the Left of the spectrum, so I am not surprised. Mambo Watch, Alex, and Omar are all true to form. Nothing else can be expected from them. One cannot expect to have peaches from an elm tree. It simply does not happen.

Gomihead,
you are the one who will have to bear with Obama, luckily for me I don't live there, but you do. But bury your Gomihead in the sand, and keep cheering for Obama, you only deserve what you will get.
By the way, Yogi Berra said: "is not over till is over" and this folksy refrain from the former catcher of the Yankees applies here. Let's wait until the Nov 08 general elections before you count your chickens. The elections have not taken place yet. There is much ahead of us until they take place, and then we will see what happens. Stay tuned.
So a self proclaimed Cuban refugee is cheering for Obama after the Houston Che revelations? Well, well, you are full of surprises aren't you?

Подумали с мужем о подарках на юбилейчик младшему сыну, ему три с половиной года, всевозможные-роботы-конструкторы у него есть много, ему нравится мышонок Тич. Я откапала типа такой игрушки, только мишку -говорящий мишка Куби, кто нить покупал такого? Стоит брать? Или порекомендуйте что-либо аналогичное. Не дайте ребенку остаться без презента от папы с мамы с папой.

Жаркое лето завершилось, но как принято говорить форс морозу не боится и молодёжь выпендривается друг перед другом. Зачем?

Я вот думаю, в случае в случае если я ему нужна, тогда отчего он незамедлительно как я приехала не сказал, я только через полгода в последствии моего возвращения, в последствии такого как мы целых полгода учились сообща и просто здоровались?|У меня проблема с моим МЧ такая - это разбудить его утром на работу...на работу ему надо приплестись к 10 00, он заводит себе будильник где-то на 8 00, и так 2 часа он может звонить, МЧ вроде проснулся, посмотрю глаза открыл...потом их закрывает и далее продолжает спать, а потом в итоге в случае в случае если он проспал, я ещё буду виновата что он проспал...
