Guerrillas–real and comically bogus

This Raul Reyes who just got whacked in Ecuador was a leader of FARC– who have fought for 40 years, control (tragically) a good portion of Colombia, and have recruited 10,000 fighters (narco/terrorist-murderers- kidnappers.)
Ernesto “Che” Guevara. never fought a guerrilla campaign, recruited fewer than 30 fighters in Bolivia, controlled no territory, wandered around lost for half a year, utterly lost and apparently unable to read a compass–then was captured and his force wiped out at their first genuine firefight.
So who get a major Hollywood epic title “Guerrilla!” !!? (due out late this year)
There’s nothing like having Fidel Castro as a publicity agent–with one drawback: he’ll only crank up the “Star-Making Machinery” (as Joni Mitchell sang) after having sent you to “sleep with the fishes.”
(Please don’t misconstrue this to suggest I sympathize with the mass-murdering FARC. Just an observation.)
