A Celebration Day for Cuban-Americans!

Che

We celebrate today, October 9th, the 46th anniversary of the death of Ernesto "Che" Guevara at age 39 in 1967. Following is an article and interview with fellow Cuban-American and former CIA operative Felix Rodriguez, who played a crucial role in the capture and death of Che in Bolivia. On this day, I offer a toast to Felix and responsible Bolivians for achieving a great feat for democracy.

There can only be but one conclusion reached by those who are faithful students of history, El Che was a brutal "aCHEsino!"

    If you want to thank somebody, thank Fidel, who deliberately gave Che enough rope with which to hang himself. Che was wrong about being worth more alive than dead; as far as Fidel was concerned, it was the other way around--and the dead Che has proved useful and profitable indeed.

    Felix Rodriguez is a very brave and dedicated man. At the age of 26 to have helped capture Che Guevara, he's done more than most of us in our struggle against the enemies of Cuba, but I can't help but feel revulsion as he describes the respect that he bestowed on that bastard Che.

    To start, I don't believe that Che had a philosophy in life or a [misguided] laudable goal, other than to create mayhem and to satiate his lust for blood. Whereas fidel's goal is megalomania, Che's was murder and adventure. Che was never a statesman, or a general or a military man, or anything that one would respect. He was nothing more than a vagabound, a loser, that found himself in a fortuitous situation--not of his own making--by the fates. He deserved no respect, especially after he helped destroy a country.
