Che is Still Dead

Cuba remembers fondly their dead poster boy, Che Guevara, 40 years after his death. Some interesting facts about Che:

  • He was part Irish
  • Used to shoot deserters from his guerrilla army
  • Liked to slice the throats of political prisoners while they lay sleeping
  • Studied medicine at the University of Buenos Aires and graduated in 1953
  • Quote: "Don't shoot! I'm Che Guevara. I'm worth more to you alive than dead."
  • His image has sold more widgets than Big Bird's, now that's capitalism!
  • Quote: "Blind hate against the enemy creates a forceful impulse that cracks the boundaries of natural human limitations, transforming the soldier in an effective, selective and cold killing machine. A people without hate cannot triumph against the adversary."
  • Was a murderous, totalitarian villain.
  • His death proves the CIA is not completely useless.
