Encyclopedia of Insurgency and Counterinsurgency: A New Era of Modern Warfare: A New Era of Modern Warfare. Poet and human rights activist Armando Valladares, who was imprisoned at La Cabana, documented Guevara's particular and personal interest in the interrogation, torture, and execution of prisoners.
Guevara believed that the placement of Soviet missiles would protect Cuba from any direct military action against it from the United States. Jon Lee Anderson reports that after the crisis Guevara told Sam Russell, a British correspondent for the socialist newspaper Daily Worker, that if the missiles had been under Cuban control, they would have fired them.
Do you have facts to add? Regarding facts to add, I suggest that the numerous documented facts of Guevara's murders, torture, and cruel behaviour should be added. To quote the Slate article http: He founded Cuba's "labor camp" system—the system that was eventually employed to incarcerate gays, dissidents, and AIDS victims. Why is there little to no mention of Che's atrocities. It seems that his cult status grants him immunity from these troubling facts. I cannot readily imagine why that is encyclopedic, and even if true and for some reason notable for example, if he is attempting to promote policies in Hong Kong modeled insome way on Latin American Marxist revolutionary traditions , it would seem to me to belong in an article on Leung Kwok-Hung, not one on Che Guevara.
Under the Cuba section this text can be found: Either it was a. The Makarov uses the 9x18mm Makarov cartridge. Since I really can't say which is right, or what the weapon in question really was, I didn't want to edit the entry. I've also just registered, although I have been using Wikipedia for a while. Besides, this is really nitpicking Offhand, I'd guess the Makarov wasn't all too available at the time. Perhaps this was a Soviet Tokarev TT pistol this used the same 7. While the caliber may be similar the ballistics of the rounds are far different and the Russian variant far more powerful.
Given the weapons use in the Sierra Maestra the US. BTW Eutimio Guerra is reported to have been a well known and popular "agrarian reformer" way before Castro reached those mountains, and as to Guerra being an informant we only have Castro's and the Che's words for it. Some have speculated however, that the hero worship of Che is precisely something he wouldn't have wanted - the T-shirts bearing his image have become fashion statements and are sometimes very expensive.
The ideals that Che had fought are oftentimes opposite of today's crass consumerism indulged by young people. True enough that some have speculated this, but POV speculation has no place in the article. If you can cite someone reasonably authoritative on what Che would and wouldn't have wanted, fine, but blind speculation?
The dispute is resolved, we can delete this shit. Hope nobody revert this edit! I see this was recently anonymously changed from Rosario I know where that is, it's a city, it's where I thought he was from to Lancia. No citation or even edit summary was given. Does anyone have a citation either way? A recent anon edit changed the number of Granma survivors from 12 to 16 without citation. Since the old number wasn't cited either, I have no idea which was correct, but I presume someone has a citation on this; could you please present it?
The Granma arrived on 25th November Well, i've just been banned at ernesto-guevara. However, it was readily available from Crescencio Perez who grew the stuff for sale, and Castro said known to tolerate it because he needed Crescencio's help. In addition, the hills were full of the stuff, coffee plantation owners tried to get rid of it because of the effect on the workers.
The Casquitos were said to smoke it to banish fear and fatigue as they climbed the hills, but I do not know for certain for I tried not to get so close that I could smell their breath. Yes, you were indeed banned but not simply for the comments you posted above about the site but the fact that you're trying to stump the growth of ComradeChe. I run the site and I'm a pupil of Marx, Engels and Lenin, however, you continue to lie. What will this achieve? Where did I ever express "Fascist" views? Ok, I will consider the points you raised. However, in the mean time, please cease your attempts to stump the growth of my site.
The fact remains is, I don't nearly have enough time to maintain the forums in a manner I'd like to, most of the admins and moderators were democratically elected by the forum populace. I'm honestly too busy with real political work to get involved in petty internet squabbles and I cannot spend 12 hours a day online in an attempt to stop you from editing links from these pages.
Do you see me editing out links to Che-Lives on the grounds that it is infested with drug users and anarchists? So what is your problem? Is your life honestly confined to fighting what you see as Fascism on the internet?
It isn't a defining characteristic, and it's mentioned later in the article. He personally executed Eutimio Guerra, a suspected Batista informant, with a single shot from his. On 21 August , after the defeat of Batista's Ofensiva , Castro's forces began their own offensive. Objective conditions for the struggle are provided by the people's hunger, their reaction to that hunger, the terror unleashed to crush the people's reaction and the wave of hatred that the repression creates. Revolutionaries cannot foresee all the tactical variables that may arise in the course of the struggle for their liberating program. Since the old number wasn't cited either, I have no idea which was correct, but I presume someone has a citation on this; could you please present it?
I tolerated you for months and months and listening to your critisms, yet you continue to slander both me and my site in public, you've never once raised these issues with me in private. I demodded Iron Feliks last week and gave him a warning to cease his impersenation of Jews, I also debated him on Oswald Mosley to which he stopped replying. Honestly, what do you want? Stop removing the links from Wikipedia, what are you attempting to achieve by doing this? I think this discussion is only marginally relevant to Wikipedia, except insofar as it bears on whether or not we should link to the site in question.
We want to link from Wikipedia to sites that are of a quality comparable to our own; Wikipedia is not a link farm. Tarasi, the promotion of your site is not one of Wikipedia's goals, and given that you say in almost so many words that the reason you want a link here is to promote your site, that is an argument against linking to it.
If Che y Marijuana is correct that your site includes an lot of uninformed neo-fascist contributors, and that it is relatively short on solid content, that is highly relevant to Wikipedia, and if it's inconvenient for you, that's not really Wikipedia's affair. Also, frankly, the efforts a few months back to "kidnap" an existing link and redirect it to your site tend to bias me strongly against the site, and I doubt that I'm alone in that. The adoption of new names and then sneaking it back in without discussion doesn't exactly make a positive impression, either.
Jmabel covers it pretty well. As for discussing this with you, I have, and you never seemed very interested in doing anything about it. If you'd like to discuss this further, wikipedia is not the best place. You know where I am, just drop me a line.
In the meantime, I will abstain from reverting you for the time being. The gist is that Marxism-Leninism is not opposed to these things per se , but only insomuch as they represent obstacles to a Communist victory. Recall that Communist morality is not absolute, but measures all things good and bad in terms of how well it "advances communism". Communists like to say they are against various Western abuses, but they say this chiefly to condemn the West - rather than out of a belief that these things are bad in and of themselves. I'm guessing that Che only opposed Western imperialism, but if there's any record that he opposed Soviet or Cuban imperialism as well as in Angola that would make for a very interesting article!
I've seen the latter in a number of publications, most recently in Famous Last Words C. In my own ignorance, I can't tell if this is a case of English authors ignoring inconvenient accents or the equally peculiar habit of adding accents where they may not be needed.
Can someone authoritatively state preferably with cited references which is correct? Not only is it a question of how to spell the appropriate Spanish or Argentinian slang for "buddy", but it's perhaps more important how Guevara himself or his buddies spelled it, as people's names don't necessarily follow their origins. While it makes perfect sense to include links that are intellectually critical of Guevara, the articles by one Humberto Fontova that are currently in the Links section of this page are anything but that.
I especially point to the following links:. These are not impartial criticism of Guevara making a well-thought out analysis on him, but rather hissy fits regarding Che Guevara. I consider these links inappropriate to have on a site that is supposed to be informational for the following reasons:. While they are a great comic relief compared to all the serious articles on Che, their hilarity does not justify them being linked to by an informative site like Wikipedia.
I'm removing them, if anybody seriously wants them back, we can always discuss it here, the links are posted above for review. A little one sided don't you think. The Che was known to separated himself from his group during action and he is known to have failed to support Rene Ramos Latour Daniel during the "Ofensiva. After his execution by the Bolivian army, he was regarded as a martyred hero by generations of leftists worldwide, and his image became an icon of leftist radicalism and anti-imperialism.
Guevara was the eldest of five children in a middle-class family of Spanish-Irish descent and leftist leanings.
Although suffering from asthma , he excelled as an athlete and a scholar, completing his medical studies in He spent many of his holidays traveling in Latin America , and his observations of the great poverty of the masses contributed to his eventual conclusion that the only solution lay in violent revolution. He came to look upon Latin America not as a collection of separate nations but as a cultural and economic entity, the liberation of which would require an intercontinental strategy. In particular, his worldview was changed by a nine-month journey he began in December , while on hiatus from medical school, with his friend Alberto Granado.
In Guevara went to Guatemala , where Jacobo Arbenz headed a progressive regime that was attempting to bring about a social revolution. About that time Guevara acquired his nickname, from a verbal mannerism of Argentines who punctuate their speech with the interjection che. The overthrow of the Arbenz regime in in a coup supported by the U.
This became the cornerstone of his plans to bring about socialism by means of a worldwide revolution. It was in Guatemala that Guevara became a dedicated Marxist. The few survivors, including the wounded Guevara, reached the Sierra Maestra , where they became the nucleus of a guerrilla army. Indeed, the complex Guevara, though trained as a healer, also, on occasion, acted as the executioner or ordered the execution of suspected traitors and deserters.
Guevara became a Cuban citizen, as prominent in the newly established Marxist government as he had been in the revolutionary army, representing Cuba on many commercial missions. He also became well known in the West for his opposition to all forms of imperialism and neocolonialism and for his attacks on U. Guevara expounded a vision of a new socialist citizen who would work for the good of society rather than for personal profit, a notion he embodied through his own hard work. Often he slept in his office, and, in support of the volunteer labour program he had organized, he spent his day off working in a sugarcane field.
He grew increasingly disheartened, however, as Cuba became a client state of the Soviet Union , and he felt betrayed by the Soviets when they removed their missiles from the island without consulting the Cuban leadership during the Cuban missile crisis of Back in Cuba, increasingly disillusioned with the direction of the Cuban social experiment and its reliance on the Soviets, Guevara began focusing his attention on fostering revolution elsewhere. After April he dropped out of public life. His movements and whereabouts for the next two years remained secret. It was later learned that he had traveled to what is now the Democratic Republic of the Congo with other Cuban guerrilla fighters in what proved to be a futile attempt to help the Patrice Lumumba Battalion, which was fighting a civil war there.
During that period Guevara resigned his ministerial position in the Cuban government and renounced his Cuban citizenship. After the failure of his efforts in the Congo, he fled first to Tanzania and then to a safe house in a village near Prague.
