Debunking the Che Myth

If you have high school or college age children like I do. The best thing to do as a parent is to empower them with the truth. Jose at Cubanology has posted an excellent article by his teacher friend Claudia Fanelli about her daily encounters with Ché t-shirt wearing ignorants.
I don’t see the heroic value of the man who, when he was captured in Bolivia by the Bolivian forces and the CIA, begged, "Do not shoot! I am Ché Guevara and worth more to you alive than dead.” Shouldn’t a man who believes in his cause be willing to die for it? Guevara wanted his life spared because, when all is said and done, he was a coward. No wonder Castro got rid of him by sending him to Bolivia.
Check out here Condutor's encounter during his California vacation with another Che wearing Hollywood idiot, Santana.
