  •  How much blood is on US hands... (4.00)
    Just for a comparison. I'm not saying Che was a "perfect person."

    But, the thousands of people killed in the Central American wars of the 1980s are certainly on US hands, as well as Iraq. And who knows what else after our assassinations all over Latin America.  

    I understand what you are saying about Che from your perspective, but you must understand that Che IS admired through much of Central & South America.  Whether he should be is debatable. But we surely cannot dress ourselves up in the USA as "stainfree" accusers when it comes to murderous adventures.

    •  Strawman. (none)
      Calling Che the murderer he was does not justify the many murderous things done by US leaders. As I noted above, I keep my Howard Zinn books on my desk, not put up in a bookshelf collecting dust. I know exactly how wrong the US has been, and how often the US has been that wrong in the past.

      As I have said, we need new heroes worthy of people's admiration.
