As he grew older, he developed an interest in the Latin American writers Horacio Quiroga, Ciro Alegría, Jorge Icaza, Rubén Darío, and Miguel Asturias.[26] .Many of these authors' ideas he cataloged in his own handwritten notebooks of concepts, definitions, and philosophies of influential intellectuals.^ Most secularists themselves would probably concede that these ideas constitute a reigning orthodoxy within many universities, including some with religious affiliations.

Motorcycle journey

In 1948, Guevara entered the University of Buenos Aires to study medicine. .But in 1951, he took a year off from studies to embark on a trip traversing South America by motorcycle with his friend Alberto Granado, with the final goal of spending a few weeks volunteering at the San Pablo Leper colony in Peru, on the banks of the Amazon River.^ I’ve made some early trips into Iowa and New Hampshire, Michigan, and last year some travels around South Carolina.

.On the way to Machu Picchu high in the Andes, he was struck by the crushing poverty of the remote rural areas, where peasant farmers worked small plots of land owned by wealthy landlords.^ "Continue with your work, continue with your talk, you have it in your hands, to own your lives, to own your lands".

His conception of a borderless, united Hispanic America sharing a common 'Latino' heritage was a theme that prominently recurred during his later revolutionary activities. Upon returning to Argentina, he completed his studies and received his medical degree in June 1953, making him officially "Dr. Ernesto Guevara."[32][33] Guevara later remarked that through his travels of Latin America, he came in "close contact with poverty, hunger and disease" along with the "inability to treat a child because of lack of money" and "stupefaction provoked by the continual hunger and punishment" that leads a father to "accept the loss of a son as an unimportant accident." It was these experiences which Guevara cites as convincing him that in order to "help these people", he needed to leave the realm of medicine, and consider the political arena of armed struggle.[5]

[34] This affirmed indignation carried the "head hunting tone" that he adopted in order to frighten his more Conservative relatives, and ends with Guevara swearing on an image of the then recently deceased Joseph Stalin, not to rest until these "octopuses have been vanquished."[35] Later that month, Guevara arrived in Guatemala where President Jacobo Arbenz Guzmán headed a democratically elected government that, through land reform and other initiatives, was attempting to end the latifundia system. .To accomplish this, President Arbenz had enacted a major land reform program, where all uncultivated portions of large land holdings were to be expropriated and redistributed to landless peasants.^ Che's dedication to improving the plight of the peasants in Bolivia compared favorably to Barrientos' program of social reform.

.The biggest land owner, and one most affected by the reforms, was the United Fruit Company, from which the Arbenz government had already taken more than 225,000 uncultivated acres.^ This death need not have occurred and it is more than reason enough to ensure that measures are taken to prevent other meaningless murders in the future.

[37] .Guevara was eager to fight on behalf of Arbenz and joined an armed militia organized by the Communist Youth for that purpose, but frustrated with the group's inaction, he soon returned to medical duties.^ This dogmatic view of the revolution and his own role in it caused Guevara to overestimate his ability to fight the revolution without the support of the Bolivian communists.

^ The only bright moment occurred when the men sent to obtain Che's medical supplies managed to return to the main group.

Following the coup, he again volunteered to fight, but soon after, Arbenz took refuge in the Mexican Embassy and told his foreign supporters to leave the country. Guevara’s repeated calls to resist were noted by supporters of the coup, and he was marked for murder.[42] .After Hilda Gadea was arrested, Guevara sought protection inside the Argentine consulate, where he remained until he received a safe-conduct pass some weeks later and made his way to Mexico.^ Declared a communist by the new regime, Guevara managed to arrange safe conduct out of the country and departed Guatemala on a train bound for Mexico City.14 Guatemala marked a transition in the life of Che Guevara.

In speaking about the coup Guevara stated:
"The last Latin American revolutionary democracy – that of Jacobo Arbenz – failed as a result of the cold premeditated aggression carried out by the U.S.A. Its visible head was the Secretary of State John Foster Dulles, a man who, through a rare coincidence, was also a stockholder and attorney for the United Fruit Company."[42]
.Guevara's conviction that Marxism achieved through armed struggle and defended by an armed populace was the only way to rectify such conditions was thus strengthened.^ Only men and women are capable of such integrated union that ultimately unites them to each other and opens the way for new life to enter the world.

^ Apparently, they cannot come to grips with the ugly truth, that the only true peace to be had must be achieved and maintained through strength.

[45] .Gadea wrote later, "It was Guatemala which finally convinced him of the necessity for armed struggle and for taking the initiative against imperialism.^ It was enough for him to know that there were men determined to struggle against that situation, arms in hand; it was enough for him to know that those men were in- spired by genuinely revolutionary and patriotic ideas.

By the time he left, he was sure of this."[46]

In addition he gave lectures on medicine at the National Autonomous University of Mexico and worked as a news photographer for Latina News Agency.[47] .His first wife Hilda notes in her memoir My Life with Che, that for a while, Guevara considered going to work as a doctor in Africa and that he continued to be deeply troubled by the poverty around him.^ Understanding Che Guevara's concepts on guerrilla warfare requires, first, a review of the experiences that influenced his theories, primarily, the Cuban revolution.

^ Che also earned the same respect from his fellow students who characterized him as a "...brilliant leader and exceptional commander."7 Although the key to post World War II revolutionary movements is the marriage of techniques with ideology, evidence indicates that Fidel Castro did not indoctrinate his trainees with specific communist doctrine at this time.

^ Two years earlier in the Sierra, Castro had ordered Che to take command over a guerrilla faction led by a fellow 26th of July Movement rebel named Jorge Sotus, who had been operating in an area north of the area where Fidel and Che were and had actually been confronting and fighting Batista's army.

In this vein, he considered Batista a "U.S. puppet whose strings needed cutting."[50]
.Although he planned to be the group's combat medic, Guevara participated in the military training with the members of the Movement.^ American military aid, although significant, played a secondary role in defeating the guerrilla movement.

.The key portion of training involved learning hit and run tactics of guerrilla warfare.^ Castro had obtained the services of Colonel Alberto Bayo to train his men in guerrilla tactics.

^ By then breaking his guerrillas into small groups, Che hoped to cause the Bolivian army to disperse, placing themselves at the mercy of aggressive "hit and run" tactics.

^ The "July 26 Movement" provided Che with his advanced training in guerrilla warfare, enabling him to form a framework for the con- duct of future revolutions.

.Guevara and the others underwent arduous 15-hour marches over mountains, across rivers, and through the dense undergrowth, learning and perfecting the procedures of ambush and quick retreat.^ To persevere through this to that joyful silence is to march naked across the desert.

^ During the arduous march their sole contact with the outside world existed through the high powered radio as Castro remained faithful in maintaining contact with his expedition.

.The first step in Castro's revolutionary plan was an assault on Cuba from Mexico via the Granma, an old, leaky cabin cruiser.^ Understanding the steps leading to Che's selection for his next revolution first requires an appreciation for Cuba's position in 1965 as the vanguard for the worldwide "wars of national liberation".

.Travelling by foot, Guevara embarked on a difficult 7 week march only travelling at night to avoid ambush, and often not eating for several days.^ Che retained confidence in his guerrillas, remarking that the only potential deserter is one of Moises Guevara's recruits, Willy.59 As October began the guerrillas were forced to hide during the day and move only at night.

[69] .In the closing days of December 1958, Guevara’s task was to cut the island in half by taking Las Villas province.^ Here's another eye-witness account regarding Che's famous "invasion" of las Villas Province shortly before the famous "battle" of Santa Clara.

.In a matter of days he executed a series of "brilliant tactical victories" that gave him control of all but the province’s capital city of Santa Clara.^ His insistence on commanding all aspects of the revolution led him to reject the communist leader, Monje's demands for control of the revolution.

^ Despite Che's many mistakes, both in planning and execution, those who engineered his defeat deserve credit for exploiting Guevara's tactical errors, thus denying him victory.

^ What he did in terms of tactics isn't really any different from any insurrectionists have done, including George Washington and all of those who fought under him...

[69] .Guevara then directed his "suicide squad" in the attack on Santa Clara, that became the final decisive military victory of the revolution.^ The one that describes his most famous military exploit is referred to as "The Battle of Santa Clara," which took place in December 1958.

.Che's eventual victory despite being outnumbered 10:1, remains in the view of some observers a "remarkable tour de force in modern warfare."^ He states in his book, Che Guevara on Guerrilla Warfare, that three fundamental conclusions were revealed in the Cuban revolution: 1) Popular Forces can win a war against an army.

^ Che, despite the realization that his base was compromised, chose to remain at the site rather than move elsewhere.

^ He remained strangely quiet through- out the summer, when publicizing Che's presence in Bolivia might have achieved a propaganda victory for the beleaguered guerrillas.

[72]
After the battle of Santa Clara, January 1, 1959
.Radio Rebelde broadcast the first reports that Guevara's column had taken Santa Clara on New Year's Eve 1958. This contradicted reports by the heavily controlled national news media, which had at one stage reported Guevara's death during the fighting.^ I've yet to see Fox News report on a confederate flag, let alone a KKK one, at a McCain office; official or 'volunteer'.

^ During the first phase, the foco is molded into an effective fighting force.

^ One of the first portrayals of Guevara by American press.

At 3 am on January 1, 1959, upon learning that his generals were negotiating a separate peace with Guevara, Fulgencio Batista boarded a plane in Havana and fled for the Dominican Republic, along with an amassed "fortune of more than $ 300,000,000 through graft and payoffs."[73] The following day on January 2, Guevara entered Havana to take final control of the capitol.[74] .Fidel Castro however took 6 more days to arrive, as he stopped to rally support in several large cities on his way to rolling victoriously into Havana on January 8, 1959. In mid-January of 1959, Guevara went to live at a summer villa in Tarara to recover from a violent asthma attack.^ The city fell to Che Guevara on New Year's Day, 1959.

^ However, it would behoove him to ensure that the flag gets taken down and that he renounces any affinity for Che and the Fidel Castro regime.

^ Fidel Castro, after the aborted landing on Cuba's southeastern coast, escaped into the Sierra Maestras with only fifteen survivors.

[75] .While there he started the Tarara Group, a group that debated and formed the new plans for Cuba's social, political, and economic development.^ Very few people remained -- most had left not because of the new pressure for economic development but because of decades of deindustrialization and white flight in the surrounding areas.

^ Provides excellent background material on Bolivia's political, economic, social, and military evolution.

^ It explains why political liberals and Libertarians (in the American context), while disagreeing on economic issues, unite on social ones.

[76] .In addition, Che began to write his book Guerrilla Warfare while resting at Tarara.^ Understanding Che Guevara's concepts on guerrilla warfare requires, first, a review of the experiences that influenced his theories, primarily, the Cuban revolution.

^ Che's guerrilla warfare concepts, when applied to Bolivia, did not mesh with the realities of existing circumstances.

^ Bayo's instruction profoundly affected Che's philosophy of guerrilla warfare.

[77]
.In February, the revolutionary government proclaimed Guevara "a Cuban citizen by birth" in recognition of his role in the triumph.^ After rising to power in Fidel Castro's revolutionary government, Che Guevara attained international status as a spokesman for radical social progress.

^ Any analysis of Che Guevara's impact on the Cuban revolution- ary government must first address the relationship between him and Fidel Castro.

^ Simply put, Che was a purist where Fidel was a realist; Che was rigid, where Fidel was flexible or erratic; Che was utopian, where Fidel was worldly.3 These dissimilarities influenced many of the events involving Che Guevara's role as ideological leader in Cuba's revolutionary govern- ment.

[78] .When Hilda Gadea arrived in Cuba in late January, Guevara told her that he was involved with another woman, and the two agreed on a divorce,[79] which was finalized on May 22.[80] On June 2, 1959, he married Aleida March, a Cuban-born member of the 26th of July movement with whom he had been living since late 1958. Guevara returned to the seaside village of Tarara in June for his honeymoon with Aleida.^ Cuban veteran of Castro's "July 26th Movement".

^ Another theory behind Castro's abandonment of Che involves the underlying issue of personal problems between the two men.

^ The funds for these bribes derived mostly from Fidel's snookering of Batista's wealthy political opponents, convincing them that he was a "patriotic Cuban, a democrat," and that they should join, or at least help fund, his 26th of July Movement in order to bring democracy and prosperity to Cuba.

[81] .Guevara had children from both his marriages, and one illegitimate child, as follows: With Hilda Gadea (married August 18, 1955; divorced May 22, 1959), Hilda Beatriz Guevara Gadea, born February 15, 1956 in Mexico City; died August 21, 1995 in Havana, Cuba; with Aleida March (married June 2, 1959), Aleida Guevara March, born November 24, 1960 in Havana, Cuba, Camilo Guevara March, born May 20, 1962 in Havana, Cuba, Celia Guevara March, born June 14, 1963 in Havana, Cuba, and Ernesto Guevara March, born February 24, 1965 in Havana, Cuba; and with Lilia Rosa López (extramarital), Omar Pérez, born March 19, 1964 in Havana, Cuba.^ A young, impressionable Ernesto “Che” Guevara de la Serna, born of middle class roots, planned to become a doctor, not a revolutionary.

La Cabaña, land reform, and literacy

.During the rebellion against Batista's dictatorship, the general command of the rebel army, led by Fidel Castro, introduced into the liberated territories the 19th century penal law commonly known as the Ley de la Sierra.^ He met like-minded souls in Fidel and Raul Castro, and together they began plotting the overthrow of General Fulgencio Batista’s government in Cuba.

^ So in a massive "relocation" campaign reminiscent of the one Spanish General Valerinao "The Butcher" Weyler carried out against Cubans during their war of independence at the turn of the century, Castro's Soviet-trained armed forces ripped hundreds of thousands of rural Cubans from their ancestral homes at gunpoint and herded them into concentration camps on the opposite side of Cuba.

.In 1959, the revolutionary government extended its application to the whole of the republic and to those it considered war criminals, captured and tried after the revolution.^ Others would say it's only those in charge of government can make just war determinations, so we must not question our leaders' judgements on these matters.

^ Guevara's theories captured the imagination of revolutionaries world- wide and has directly impacted upon their attempts to fight wars of national liberation.

According to the Cuban Ministry of Justice, this latter extension was supported by the majority of the population, and followed the same procedure as those in the Nuremberg Trials held by the Allies after World War II.[84]
.To implement a portion of this plan, Castro named Guevara commander of the La Cabaña Fortress prison, for a five-month tenure (January 2 through June 12, 1959).^ But he found a way for Che to earn his keep and stay of trouble in Cuba by assigning him as commander of La Cabana, the fortress where political prisoners were held and killed.

[85] .Guevara was charged with purging the Batista army and consolidating victory by exacting "revolutionary justice" against those considered to be traitors, chivatos (informants) or war criminals.^ Former officer in the Spanish Republican Army who trained Castro's guerrillas, including Che, in Mexico in preparation for the Cuban insurgency against Batista.

^ Popular forces did win the war against an army; the revolutionary situation that led to victory was created by Fidel Castro without the direction of an established communist party, and the war was won in Cuba's rural areas.

^ Sun Tzu's writings, The Art of War, establish the doctrine followed by all revolutionaries since: deception, flexibility, and concentration against the enemy's weakest point.

[86] .Serving in the post as commander of La Cabaña, Guevara reviewed the appeals of those convicted during the revolutionary tribunal process.^ Ernesto Guevara de la Serna's achievements fall far below those of the three men mentioned above.

^ I suppose those who have no issue with the Butcher's of la Cabaña's image anywhere would think differently, had it been your father or your brother or your grandfather whose life had been taken by Che Guevara.

^ Tania had met Che in East Germany while serving as his interpreter during one of his visits in 1960.6 She became enthralled with Che and his revolutionary ideas.

[9] On some occasions the penalty delivered by the tribunal was death by firing squad.[87] .Raúl Gómez Treto, senior legal advisor to the Cuban Ministry of Justice, has argued that the death penalty was justified in order to prevent citizens themselves from taking justice into their own hands, as happened twenty years earlier in the anti-Machado rebellion.^ A sitting Chief Justice took the law into his own hands.

^ Following the script originated in Mexico ten years earlier, Che ordered his agents to purchase a farm where the foco could train and organize.

[88] Biographers note that in January 1959, the Cuban public was in a "lynching mood",[89] and point to a survey at the time showing 93% public approval for the tribunal process.[9] With 20,000 Cubans estimated to have been killed at the hands of Batista's collaborators,[90] and many of those sentenced to death accused of torture and physical atrocities,[9] the newly empowered government carried out executions "without respect for due process."[91] Although the exact numbers differ, it is estimated that several hundred people were executed during this time.[92]
Conflicting views exist of Guevara's delight towards the executions at La Cabaña. Some exiled opposition biographers report that he relished the rituals of the firing squad, and organized them with gusto.[91] .What is acknowledged by all sides is that Guevara had become a "hardened" man, who had no qualms about the death penalty or summary and collective trials.^ McDonnell, on the other hand, says he sees no contradictions between his Catholic beliefs and supporting the death penalty.

^ A man hears it differently: "It's really essential when you are talking about rights to talk about responsibilities because it's got to be the counterpoint so that people who are on the other side don't think you have the rights to everything but you don't have any responsibilities."

^ Since Che Guevara, above all else, was controversial, sources representing widely different perspectives of the man and his life were readily available.

.If the only way to "defend the revolution was to execute its enemies, he would not be swayed by humanitarian or political arguments."^ They are interested only in partisan political advantage: Unfortunately, there are some in the church who would reduce the faith to pious simplicities and partisan political slogans .

[91] This is further confirmed by a February 5, 1959, letter to Luis Paredes López in Buenos Aires where Guevara states unequivocally "The executions by firing squads are not only a necessity for the people of Cuba, but also an imposition of the people."[93]
(right to left) Rebel leader Camilo Cienfuegos, Cuban President Manuel Urrutia, and Guevara (January 1959)
.Along with ensuring "revolutionary justice", the other key early platform of Guevara's was establishing agrarian land reform.^ Understanding the foco theory of revolution demands an analysis of the evolution of revolutionary thought expounded by others before and after Che Guevara.

.Almost immediately after the success of the revolution on January 27, 1959, Che Guevara made one of his most significant speeches where he talked about "the social ideas of the rebel army."^ No one will talk about it.

^ Understanding Che Guevara's concepts on guerrilla warfare requires, first, a review of the experiences that influenced his theories, primarily, the Cuban revolution.

^ It is almost like he is oblivious to the fact that people like Che Guevara still actually exist in this world.

During this speech, he declared that the main concern of the new Cuban government was "the social justice that land redistribution brings about."[94] A few months later on May 17, 1959, the Agrarian Reform Law called on and crafted by Che Guevara went into effect, limiting the size of all farms to 1,000 acres. .Any holdings over these limits were expropriated by the government and either redistributed to peasants in 67 acre parcels or held as state run communes.^ If any states have been run into the ground, these are the ones.

[100] It was at the memorial service that Alberto Korda took the famous photograph of Guevara, now known as Guerrillero Heroico.[101]
.These perceived threats prompted Castro to further eliminate "counter-revolutionaries", and utilize Guevara to now drastically increase the speed of land reform.^ After rising to power in Fidel Castro's revolutionary government, Che Guevara attained international status as a spokesman for radical social progress.

.The land confiscated included 480,000 acres owned by U.S. corporations.^ In his own words, "I was born in Argentina, I fought in Cuba, and I began to be a revolutionary in Guatemala."12 When he arrived in Guatemala City, Jacobo Arbeniz, the president, had completed the distribution of a vast amount of land formerly owned by the country's landowners, including 11,000 acres belonging to the United Fruit Company.

[96] Months later, as retaliation, U.S President Dwight D. Eisenhower sharply reduced the import of Cuban sugar (Cuba’s main cash crop), thus leading Guevara on July 10, 1960, to address over 100,000 workers in front of the Presidential Palace at a rally called to denounce U.S. "economic aggression."[102]

As a consequence of his new position, it was now Guevara's duty to sign the Cuban currency, which per custom would bear his signature. .However, instead of using his more dignified full name, he dismissively signed the bills solely "Che."^ All of the guerrillas, including Che, used one or more code names while operating in Bolivia.

^ Che did not bravely face his killers like a man, but rather begged them to spare him because he was "more useful to them alive than dead".

^ Guevara's theories captured the imagination of revolutionaries world- wide and has directly impacted upon their attempts to fight wars of national liberation.

He viewed capitalism as a "contest among wolves" where "one can only win at the cost of others," and thus desired to see the creation of a "new man and woman."[108] Guevara continually stressed that a socialist economy in itself is not "worth the effort, sacrifice, and risks of war and destruction" if it ends up encouraging "greed and individual ambition at the expense collective spirit."[109] A primary goal of Guevara's thus became to reform "individual consciousness" and values to produce better workers and citizens.[109] .In his view, Cuba's "new man" would be able to overcome the "egotism" and "selfishness" that he loathed and discerned was uniquely characteristic of individuals in capitalist societies.^ Click here to view image INTRODUCTION ENDNOTES 1"Man In the News", New York Times, Dec 12, 1964.

[109] In describing this new method of "development", Guevara stated:

In the other, wealth is the people’s patrimony."[110]
A further integral part of fostering a sense of "unity between the individual and the mass", Guevara believed, was volunteer work and will. To display this, Guevara "led by example", working "endlessly at his ministry job, in construction, and even cutting sugar cane" on his day off.[111] He was known for working 36 hours at a stretch, calling meetings after midnight, and eating on the run.[109] .Such behavior was befitting of Guevara's new program of moral incentives, where each worker was now required to meet a quota and produce a certain number of goods.^ If that is the reward to incompetent Executives, while decreasing the number of Workers who produced the Wealth of that Corporation, it is evident, you are a Conservative Republican.

[109] Guevara unapologetically defended his personal philosophy towards motivation and work, stating:

^ The Soviet Union received its share of lectures from Guevara, who believed the communist giant could be guilty of imperialistic designs by tying aid to underdeveloped countries to reciprocal trade agreements.

.At the end of 1960 he visited Czechoslovakia, the U.S.S.R., North Korea, Hungary and East Germany and signed, for instance, a trade agreement in East Berlin on 17 December 1960.[113] Such agreements helped Cuba's economy to a certain degree but had also the disadvantage of a growing economical dependency on the Eastern Bloc.^ Nations such as Ghana and India have proven what developing nations can do when they adopt certain market economy policies.

On April 17, 1961, 1,400 U.S. trained Cuban exiles invaded the island during the Bay of Pigs Invasion. .Guevara himself did not play a key role in the fighting, as one day before the invasion a warship carrying Marines faked an invasion off the West Coast of Pinar Del Rio and drew forces commanded by Guevara to that region.^ That period saw him playing key roles in the toppling of both Ferdinand Marcos in 1986 and Joseph Estrada in 2001.

^ This controversial double agent was to play a key role in the Bolivia drama, serving two masters - and dying in the process.

^ This dogmatic view of the revolution and his own role in it caused Guevara to overestimate his ability to fight the revolution without the support of the Bolivian communists.

.However, historians give Guevara, who was director of instruction for Cuba’s armed forces at the time, a share of credit for the victory.^ Yes, but the left seems unwilling to recognize the source, God, those who founded America on liberty, the Founders, or those who defend it, our armed forces.

[10] Author Tad Szulc in his explanation of the Cuban victory, assigns Guevara partial credit, stating: "The revolutionaries won because Che Guevara, as the head of the Instruction Department of the Revolutionary Armed Forces in charge of the militia training program, had done so well in preparing 200,000 men and women for war."[10] It was also during this deployment where he suffered a bullet grazing to the cheek when his pistol fell out of its holster and accidentally discharged.[117]

^ He states in his book, Che Guevara on Guerrilla Warfare, that three fundamental conclusions were revealed in the Cuban revolution: 1) Popular Forces can win a war against an army.

It read "Thanks for Playa Girón (Bay of Pigs). Before the invasion, the revolution was shaky. Now it's stronger than ever."[118] In response to U.S. Treasury Secretary Douglas Dillon presenting the Alliance for Progress for ratification by the meeting, Guevara antagonistically attacked the United States claim of being a "democracy", stating that such a system was not compatible with "financial oligarchy, discrimination against blacks, and outrages by the Ku Klux Klan."[119] Guevara continued, speaking out against the "persecution" that in his view "drove scientists like Oppenheimer from their posts, deprived the world for years of the marvelous voice of Paul Robeson, and sent the Rosenbergs to their deaths against the protests of a shocked world."[119] Guevara ended his remarks by insinuating that the United States was not interested in real reforms, sardonically quipping that "U.S. experts never talk about agrarian reform; they prefer a safe subject, like a better water supply. In short they seem to prepare the revolution of the toilets."[26]
.Guevara, who was practically the architect of the Soviet-Cuban relationship,[120] then played a key role in bringing to Cuba the Soviet nuclear-armed ballistic missiles that precipitated the Cuban Missile Crisis in October 1962 and brought the world to the brink of nuclear war.^ That period saw him playing key roles in the toppling of both Ferdinand Marcos in 1986 and Joseph Estrada in 2001.

^ Finally, Che's personal involvement in Cuba's aborted attempt to support the Congo rebellion played a decisive role in subsequent decisions to try again in a country closer to home.

^ Among the Bolivians who assisted the Cubans were Jorge Kolle Cueto and Mario Monje Molina, communist party officials who subsequently would play significant roles in Guevara's later Bolivia campaign.8 Che ultimately desired to bring revolution to his homeland and had established a network of subversion in Argentina as early as 1961.

[121] .During an interview with the British Communist newspaper The Daily Worker a few weeks after the crisis, Guevara still fuming over the perceived Soviet betrayal, stated that if the missiles had been under Cuban control, they would have fired them off.^ Cubans, under the Batista regime, existed in a state of regression while the people of Bolivia perceived pro- gressive reform and social improvement.

International diplomacy

.By December 1964, Che Guevara had emerged as a "revolutionary statesman of world stature" and thus traveled to New York City as head of the Cuban delegation to speak at the United Nations.^ The city fell to Che Guevara on New Year's Day, 1959.

^ Fighting continued be- tween the rebel factions and the government for the next seven years.10 Che had become committed to the struggle in Africa, as evidenced by his remarks in his United Nations speech in December 1964 that "The free men of the world must be prepared to avenge the crime committed in the Congo."11 Che's years of travel had led him to Africa frequently and he established close ties with many revolutionary figures on the continent, including the Congo- lese rebel commanders.

^ Understanding Che Guevara's concepts on guerrilla warfare requires, first, a review of the experiences that influenced his theories, primarily, the Cuban revolution.

[124] During his impassioned address, he criticized the United Nations inability to confront the "brutal policy of apartheid" in South Africa, proclaiming "can the United Nations do nothing to stop this?"[125] Guevara then denounced the United States policy towards their black population, stating:
.
"Those who kill their own children and discriminate daily against them because of the color of their skin; those who let the murderers of blacks remain free, protecting them, and furthermore punishing the black population because they demand their legitimate rights as free men — how can those who do this consider themselves guardians of freedom?"^ They hate those who defend themselves with guns.

^ As a result, Guevara experienced firsthand the poverty so prevalent in Latin America.

[125] This "epic", Guevara declared, would be written by the "hungry Indian masses, peasants without land, exploited workers, and progressive masses." To Guevara the conflict was a struggle of mass and ideas, which would be carried forth by those "mistreated and scorned by imperialism" who were previously considered "a weak and submissive flock." With this "flock", Guevara now asserted, "Yankee monopoly capitalism" now terrifyingly saw their "gravediggers."[125] .It would be during this "hour of vindication" Guevara pronounced, that the "anonymous mass" would begin to write its own history "with its own blood", and reclaim those "rights that were laughed at by one and all for 500 years."^ During this phase the offensive against the army on its own ground begins.

"The laws of capitalism, blind and invisible to the majority, act upon the individual without his thinking about it. He sees only the vastness of a seemingly infinite horizon before him. .That is how it is painted by capitalist propagandists, who purport to draw a lesson from the example of Rockefeller — whether or not it is true — about the possibilities of success.^ Whether he knew about the flag being there or not it certainly shows a slice of who his supporters are.

In November 1960, he was received in Communist China by Chairman Mao Zedong with an official ceremony in the Government palace.
.Two weeks later, in 1965 Guevara dropped out of public life and then vanished altogether.^ Two of the aborted insurgencies are particularly relevant to Che Guevara's later attempts to lead revolutions: those in Bolivia and Argentina.

His whereabouts were a great mystery in Cuba, as he was generally regarded as second in power to Castro himself. .His disappearance was variously attributed to the failure of the industrialization scheme he had advocated while minister of industry, to pressure exerted on Castro by Soviet officials disapproving of Guevara's pro-Chinese Communist stance on the Sino-Soviet split, and to serious differences between Guevara and the pragmatic Castro regarding Cuba's economic development and ideological line.^ The communist party in Bolivia was seriously split between Pro-Peking and Pro-Moscow lines.

^ Very few people remained -- most had left not because of the new pressure for economic development but because of decades of deindustrialization and white flight in the surrounding areas.

^ Escalante blamed Cuba's economic instability and her strained relationship with the Soviet Union on Che's "...

.The coincidence of Guevara's views with those expounded by the Chinese Communist leadership was increasingly problematic for Cuba as the nation's economy became more and more dependent on the Soviet Union.^ The Soviet Union received its share of lectures from Guevara, who believed the communist giant could be guilty of imperialistic designs by tying aid to underdeveloped countries to reciprocal trade agreements.

^ Thus, Che's fall from grace in Cuba can be attributed to the failure of his economic reforms, his attacks on the Soviet Union, and, finally, policy clashes with Castro.

^ This dogmatic view of the revolution and his own role in it caused Guevara to overestimate his ability to fight the revolution without the support of the Bolivian communists.

Since the early days of the Cuban revolution, Guevara had been considered by many an advocate of Maoist strategy in Latin America and the originator of a plan for the rapid industrialization of Cuba which was frequently compared to China's "Great Leap Forward." Castro became weary of Guevara, because of the fact that Guevara was opposed to Soviet conditions and recommendations that Castro pragmatically saw as necessary. Of which Guevara described as corrupt "pre-monopolist."[136] .However, both Guevara and Castro were supportive publicly on the idea of a united front.^ Che's desire to lead revolutions elsewhere and Castro's willingness to support such endeavors also influenced events leading to Guevara's ill-fated escapade in Bolivia.

^ How that fate was avoided demands analysis of the various actions taken by both Che Guevara and Fidel Castro on one hand, and Bolivia and the United States on the other.

^ The circumstances under which Castro abandoned Guevara, however, clearly indicate that the Cuban dictator deliberately deserted his former minister.

.Following the Cuban Missile Crisis and what Guevara perceived as a Soviet betrayal when Nikita Khrushchev withdrew the missiles from Cuban territory, Guevara had grown more skeptical of the Soviet Union.^ The Soviets, alarmed that discovery of the Cubans would cause an inter- national crisis, may have urged Castro to order Che and his group home.

Congo

A 37-year-old Guevara, in the Congo Crisis, 1965
In 1965, Guevara decided to venture to Africa and offer his knowledge and experience as a guerrilla to the ongoing conflict in the Congo. .According to Algerian President Ahmed Ben Bella, Guevara thought that Africa was imperialism's weak link and therefore had enormous revolutionary potential.^ In this sense Guevara, undeniably, rightfully earned the distinction of a revolutionary leader, one who was able to powerfully affect the thoughts and actions of his followers.

^ Understanding the foco theory of revolution demands an analysis of the evolution of revolutionary thought expounded by others before and after Che Guevara.

[139] .Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser, who had fraternal relations with Che dating back to his 1959 visit, saw Guevara's plans to fight in the Congo as "unwise" and warned that he would become a "Tarzan" figure, doomed to failure.^ Moises Guevara (No relation to Che).

^ Chapter VI WHY BOLIVIA? Che Guevara's decision to choose Bolivia as his next revolu- tion was not generated after his return from the Congo.

^ Bolivian Army non-commissioned officer who executed Che Guevara, following the orders of his superiors.

[140] Despite the warning, Guevara traveled to the Congo while using the alias Ramón Benítez.[141] .Guevara led the Cuban operation in support of the Marxist Simba movement, which had emerged from the ongoing Congo Crisis.^ Cuban agents coordinated with communist party officials in La Paz, arranging for logistical support of the forthcoming operation.

.Guevara, his second-in-command Victor Dreke, and 12 other Cuban expeditionaries arrived in the Congo on April 24, 1965 and a contingent of approximately 100 Afro-Cubans joined them soon afterward.^ In July 1957, Guevara was promoted to "Commandante", the highest rank in the rebel army, and awarded command of the second column of the guerrilla force.

^ Soon after his return to Cuba in March 1965, Che convinced Castro to permit him to lead a contingent of guerrillas to assist the Congolese rebel effort.

[142][143] .They collaborated for a time with guerrilla leader Laurent-Désiré Kabila, who had previously helped supporters of the CIA-slain Patrice Lumumba lead an unsuccessful revolt months earlier.^ Bolivian Maoist labor leader who recruited guerrillas for Che's foco.

^ Bolivian communist leader who convinced Castro to commit guerrillas to Bolivia.

^ The rebellious, wandering adolescent from Argentina who became a guerrilla commander in the Sierra Maestras and an ideological leader in Cuba's government began to search for another revolution.

As an admirer of the late Lumumba, Guevara declared that his "murder should be a lesson for all of us."[144] Guevara, with limited knowledge of Swahili and the local languages was assigned a teenage interpreter Freddy Ilanga. Over the course of seven months Ilanga grew to "admire the hard-working Guevara", who according to Mr. Ilanga, "showed the same respect to black people as he did to whites."[145] .However Guevara soon became disillusioned with the discipline of Kabila's troops and later dismissed him, stating "nothing leads me to believe he is the man of the hour."^ He refused to support the insurgency after Guevara would not allow him to lead the revolution.

^ Soon after his return to Cuba in March 1965, Che convinced Castro to permit him to lead a contingent of guerrillas to assist the Congolese rebel effort.

[146]
.As an additional obstacle, white South African mercenaries, led by Mike Hoare in concert with Cuban exiles and the CIA, worked with the Congo National Army to thwart Guevara in the mountains near the village of Fizi on Lake Tanganyika.^ He states in his book, Che Guevara on Guerrilla Warfare, that three fundamental conclusions were revealed in the Cuban revolution: 1) Popular Forces can win a war against an army.

^ He also observes that condoms are only as effective if they're used "consistently and correctly"--a practice African culture will not facilitate among the womanizing men of various South African nations.

They were able to monitor his communications, and so pre-empted his attacks and interdicted his supply lines. .Despite the fact that Guevara sought to conceal his presence in the Congo, the U.S. government was aware of his location and activities: The National Security Agency was intercepting all of his incoming and outgoing transmissions via equipment aboard the USNS Pvt Jose F. Valdez (T-AG-169), a floating listening post that continuously cruised the Indian Ocean off Dar es Salaam for that purpose.^ A new government has asked the allies to remain and help maintain security in the nation while the ongoing training of Iraqi military and police authorities continue.

.Guevara's aim was to export the revolution by instructing local anti-Mobutu Simba fighters in Marxist ideology and foco theory strategies of guerrilla warfare.^ Guevara, Guerrilla Warfare, pp.

^ Compares urban guerrilla warfare with Che Guevara's foco theory.

^ His manual, Che Guevara on Guerrilla Warfare, introduced the foco theory of revolutions and remains one of the classic dissertations on guerrilla warfare.

In his Congo Diary, he cites the incompetence, intransigence and infighting of the local Congolese forces as key reasons for the revolt's failure.[148] .Later that year, ill with dysentery, suffering from acute asthma, and disheartened after seven months of frustrations, Guevara left the Congo with the Cuban survivors (Six members of his column had died).^ The insurgency that was intended to spark a hemispheric revolution lasting seven to ten years failed after only eleven months.

.At one point Guevara considered sending the wounded back to Cuba, and fighting in Congo alone until his death, as a revolutionary example; however, after being urged by his comrades and pressed by two emissaries sent by Castro, at the last moment he reluctantly agreed to retreat.^ Consider these two differences of perspective: A woman in one focus group interprets the responsibility message this way: "It's like your body, your decisions, your responsibility."

^ In this sense Guevara, undeniably, rightfully earned the distinction of a revolutionary leader, one who was able to powerfully affect the thoughts and actions of his followers.

.In speaking about the Congo, Guevara concluded that "The human element failed.^ The document is said to be a deeply theological meditation on the centrality of Christ, divine love and human love; but the text also speaks at length about the concrete expression of love in charitable action.

[149] A few weeks later, when writing the preface to the diary he kept during the Congo venture, he began: "This is the history of a failure."[150]
.Guevara was reluctant to return to Cuba, because Castro had made public Guevara's "farewell letter" — a letter intended to only be revealed in the case of his death — wherein he severed all ties in order to devote himself to revolution throughout the world.^ Religious devotion high in U.S. We still lead the world in public religious devotion, at least the Western world: Nearly all U.S. respondents said faith is important to them and only 2 percent said they do not believe in God.

^ Fidel Castro, after the aborted landing on Cuba's southeastern coast, escaped into the Sierra Maestras with only fifteen survivors.

^ Che's desire to lead revolutions elsewhere and Castro's willingness to support such endeavors also influenced events leading to Guevara's ill-fated escapade in Bolivia.

[151] As a result, Guevara spent the next six months living clandestinely in Dar es Salaam and Prague.[152] .During this time he compiled his memoirs of the Congo experience, and wrote drafts of two more books, one on philosophy and the other on economics.^ Often times two or more answers seemed to be correct until they were thought out.

Bolivia

Guevara in disguise, while using the alias Adolfo Mena González (1966)
.In late 1966, Guevara's location was still not public knowledge, although representatives of Mozambique's independence movement, the FRELIMO, reported that they met with Guevara in late 1966 or early 1967 in Dar es Salaam regarding his offer to aid in their revolutionary project, which they ultimately rejected.^ Granted the fact that said person is politically active means they should have a better knowledge of their political past, but still, it wouldn't shock me.

[154] In a speech at the 1967 International Workers' Day rally in Havana, the Acting Minister of the armed forces, Major Juan Almeida, announced that Guevara was "serving the revolution somewhere in Latin America".
Before he departed for Bolivia, Guevara altered his appearance so he would be unrecognizable as Che Guevara.[155] .In November, 1966, Guevara secretly arrived in La Paz, Bolivia on a flight from Montevideo, Uruguay under the false name Adolfo Mena González, and posed as a Uruguayan businessman working for the Organization of American States.^ As if any Democratic candidate could in any way ever stand for what Che Guevara believed in… this is an American capitalist system and Barak and all the others work within it.

In rural Bolivia shortly before his death (1967)
.Guevara's first base camp was located in the montane dry forest in the remote Ñancahuazú region.^ Che planned to establish a base of operations in the Nancahuazu River valley, a tropical, heavily forested region in the southeast.

.Training at the camp in the Ñancahuazú valley however proved to be hazardous and little was accomplished in the way of building a guerrilla army.^ Former officer in the Spanish Republican Army who trained Castro's guerrillas, including Che, in Mexico in preparation for the Cuban insurgency against Batista.

^ His guerrillas ambushed an army unit near the camp on March 23, killing seven soldiers and capturing fourteen.

Former Stasi operative Haydée Tamara Bunke Bider, better known by her nom de guerre "Tania", who had been installed as his primary agent in La Paz, was reportedly also working for the KGB and in several Western sources she is inferred to have unwittingly served Soviet interests by leading Bolivian authorities to Guevara's trail.[157][158]
.Guevara's guerrilla force, numbering about 50 and operating as the ELN (Ejército de Liberación Nacional de Bolivia; "National Liberation Army of Bolivia"), was well equipped and scored a number of early successes against Bolivian army regulars in the difficult terrain of the mountainous Camiri region.^ And they failed to stop Iraqis from signing up in large number with the police forces and the army to defend their new democracy.

Location of Vallegrande in Bolivia
Researchers hypothesize that Guevara's plan for fomenting revolution in Bolivia failed, for an array of reasons:
  • He had expected to deal only with the Bolivian military, who were poorly trained and equipped. However, Guevara was unaware that the U.S. government had sent a team of the CIA's Special Activities Division commandos and other operatives into Bolivia to aid the anti-insurrection effort. .The Bolivian Army would also be trained, advised, and supplied by U.S. Army Special Forces including a recently organized elite battalion of Rangers trained in jungle warfare that set up camp in La Esperanza, a small settlement close to the location of Guevara's guerrillas.^ Would we have stood idly by if Che's forces had routed the Bolivian army?

  • Guevara had expected assistance and cooperation from the local dissidents which he did not receive, nor did he receive support from Bolivia's Communist Party, under the leadership of Mario Monje, which was oriented toward Moscow rather than Havana.^ Among the Bolivians who assisted the Cubans were Jorge Kolle Cueto and Mario Monje Molina, communist party officials who subsequently would play significant roles in Guevara's later Bolivia campaign.8 Che ultimately desired to bring revolution to his homeland and had established a network of subversion in Argentina as early as 1961.

    ^ When Che established the foco in Bolivia, Monje actively sabotaged the guer- rillas by withholding all support.

    ^ Castro met with the Bolivian communist chief, Mario Monje, and discussed the plan.

    In Guevara's own diary captured after his death, he bristled with complaints about the Communist Party of Bolivia, which he characterized as "distrustful, disloyal and stupid."[161]
  • He had expected to remain in radio contact with Havana. However, the two shortwave transmitters provided to him by Cuba were faulty; thus the guerrillas were unable to communicate with and be resupplied, leaving them isolated and stranded.
.In addition, Guevara's known preference for confrontation rather than compromise, which had previously surfaced during his guerrilla warfare campaign in Cuba, contributed to his inability to develop successful working relationships with local leaders in Bolivia, just as it had in the Congo.^ Guevara, Guerrilla Warfare, pp.

^ Che recog- nized Bayo's contribution to his education when one of the first copies of Che Guevara on Guerrilla Warfare was sent to his former teacher with the following dedication: "To the master, with the affectionate devotion of his pupil, Che."8 Daniel James, in his biography, Che Guevara, submits that Che learned more than just guerrilla tactics at the Mexico camp.

The end result was that Guevara was unable to attract inhabitants of the local area to join his militia during the 11 months he attempted recruitment. .Near the end of the venture Guevara complained in his diary that "the peasants do not give us any help, and are turning into informers."^ "The Psalm invites us at the end to discover all the good things the Lord gives us every day.

Post-execution, remains and memorial

.
The day after his execution on October 10, 1967, Guevara's corpse was displayed to the world press in the laundry house of the Vallegrande hospital.
^ On the morning of October 9, 1967, two Ranger sergeants re- ceived orders to execute the three prisoners.

After his execution, Guevara's body was lashed to the landing skids of a helicopter and flown to nearby Vallegrande, where photographs were taken of him lying on a concrete slab in the laundry room of the Nuestra Señora de Malta.[176] .As hundreds of local residents filed past the body, many of them considered Guevara's corpse to represent a "Christ-like" visage, with some of them even surreptitiously clipping locks of his hair as divine relics.^ Consider these two differences of perspective: A woman in one focus group interprets the responsibility message this way: "It's like your body, your decisions, your responsibility."

^ We have gestures and practices that literally move our bodies in prayer that we take for granted, which many Protestants do not even think about doing.

[177] Such comparisons were further extended when two weeks later upon seeing the post-mortem photographs, English art critic John Berger observed that they resembled two famous paintings: Rembrandt's The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp and Andrea Mantegna's Lamentation over the Dead Christ.[178] .There were also four correspondents present when Guevara's body arrived in Vallegrande, including Bjorn Kumm of the Swedish Aftonbladet, who described the scene in an November 11, 1967, exclusive for The New Republic.^ Father Willy was stunned at this point, since the only question left was "who thinks Christ is truly present in the Eucharist, that it is the body and blood of our Lord?"

[179]
A declassified memorandum dated October 11, 1967 to United States President Lyndon B. Johnson from his National Security Advisor, Walt Whitman Rostow, called the decision to kill Guevara "stupid" but "understandable from a Bolivian standpoint."[180] After the execution, Rodríguez took several of Guevara's personal items, including a Rolex GMT Master wristwatch[181] which he continued to wear many years later, often showing them to reporters during the ensuing years.[182] .Today, some of these belongings, including his flashlight, are on display at the CIA.[183] After a military doctor amputated his hands, Bolivian army officers transferred Guevara's body to an undisclosed location and refused to reveal whether his remains had been buried or cremated.^ Their initial superior military efficiency stemmed from the guerrillas' initiative and the Bolivian army's disorganization, rather than an overall high- er quality of troops in the foco.

^ He states in his book, Che Guevara on Guerrilla Warfare, that three fundamental conclusions were revealed in the Cuban revolution: 1) Popular Forces can win a war against an army.

^ Former officer in the Spanish Republican Army who trained Castro's guerrillas, including Che, in Mexico in preparation for the Cuban insurgency against Batista.

Plaza de la Revolución, in Havana, Cuba. Aside the Ministry of the Interior building where Guevara once worked, is a 5 story steel outline of his face. Under the image is Guevara's motto, the Spanish phrase: "Hasta la Victoria Siempre" (English: Until the Everlasting Victory Always).
.On October 15, Fidel Castro acknowledged that Guevara was dead and proclaimed three days of public mourning throughout the island.^ The aggregate sum of the determi- nants (arbitrarily weighted by this writer) reveals that Che Guevara faced odds of two to three against success, exactly the opposite of Fidel Castro's situation in 1956.

^ Despite Che's implication by message on May 18, 1967 that he desired public announcement of the Bolivia insurgency, Castro never acknowledged to the world that Che Guevara was fighting for the "liberation" of Bolivia.

^ Castro may have real- ized that a dead Guevara would be more valuable to Cuba and a threat to the U.S. and its allies than he was alive.

[184] .On October 18, Castro addressed a crowd of one million mourners in Havana's Plaza de la Revolución and spoke about Guevara's character as a revolutionary.^ In many respects, Guevara, rather than Castro, became the symbol of the international revolutionary movement.

^ In this sense Guevara, undeniably, rightfully earned the distinction of a revolutionary leader, one who was able to powerfully affect the thoughts and actions of his followers.

^ Ernesto Guevara de la Serna's achievements fall far below those of the three men mentioned above.

[185] Fidel Castro closed his impassioned eulogy thusly:
.

.Debray, who had lived with Guevara's band of guerrillas for a short time, said that in his view they were "victims of the forest" and thus "eaten by the jungle."^ Che Guevara was condemned to the destiny prophesized by Mao for the guerrilla failing to achieve this vital alliance who: "...like the fish out of its native element, cannot live."6 Click here to view image APPENDIX B Identification of Main Personalities (Listed Alphabetically) 1.

^ They were built by a religious people who lived in communal longhouses up to 50 metres long, grouped around substantial villages.

^ As the guerrillas struggled over the inhospitable terrain they were forced to live off the land and discovered that food and water were scarce.

[187] Debray described a destitute situation where Guevara's men suffered malnutrition, lack of water, absence of shoes, and only possessed six blankets for 22 men. .Debray recounts that Guevara and the others had been suffering an "illness" which caused their hands and feet to swell into "mounds of flesh" to the point where you could not discern the fingers on their hands.^ I said you'd get a better report if you could get a picture of you and McCain smiling into the camera together to show to Fox News.

[187] .Despite the futile situation, Debray described Guevara as "optimistic about the future of Latin America" and remarked that Guevara was "resigned to die in the knowledge that his death would be a sort of renaissance", noting that Guevara perceived death "as a promise of rebirth" and "ritual of renewal."^ Despite the constant cry, that racism is alive and thriving in America, most folks could not care less about skin color.

.In July 1997, a team of Cuban geologists and Argentine forensic anthropologists discovered the remnants of seven bodies in two mass graves, including one man with amputated hands (like Guevara).^ Consider these two differences of perspective: A woman in one focus group interprets the responsibility message this way: "It's like your body, your decisions, your responsibility."

^ And will someone please tell me how many people one man has to kill before he is considered a mass murderer?

^ Castro agreed and in July Che departed with about 125 hand-picked Cubans.

.Bolivian government officials with the Ministry of Interior later identified the body as Guevara when the excavated teeth "perfectly matched" a plaster mold of Che's teeth, made in Cuba prior to his Congolese expedition.^ Although Che did not officially join the foco until ten months later, important events occurred in the ensuing months as he prepared for his final mission.

^ Debray confirmed that Che Guevara was leading the insurgency, which added to the excitement of the news.43 The Bolivian government now realized the significance of the guerrilla movement and responded to the threat with increased mobilization.

^ Che's role in shaping Castro's policies in governing Cuba would emerge much later.

The "clincher" then arrived when Argentine forensic anthropologist Alejandro Inchaurregui inspected the inside hidden pocket of a blue jacket dug up next to the handless cadaver and found a small bag of pipe tobacco. .Nino de Guzman, the Bolivian helicopter pilot who had given Che a small bag of tobacco, later remarked that he "had serious doubts" at first and "thought the Cubans would just find any old bones and call it Che"; however he stated "after hearing about the tobacco pouch, I have no doubts."^ I laughed at the thought that he would ask me… but if there is one talent I do have… it is the ability of recognizing what talent various people have and knowing who to call … and even though my Dad was in the early stages of Alzheimer’s I called him….

^ Understanding Che Guevara's concepts on guerrilla warfare requires, first, a review of the experiences that influenced his theories, primarily, the Cuban revolution.

^ No, you don't get to hear about it until the verdict is in!

[169] .On October 17, 1997, Guevara's remains, with those of six of his fellow combatants, were laid to rest with military honors in a specially built mausoleum in the Cuban city of Santa Clara, where he had commanded over the decisive military victory of the Cuban Revolution.^ Understanding Che Guevara's concepts on guerrilla warfare requires, first, a review of the experiences that influenced his theories, primarily, the Cuban revolution.

^ The answers to those questions remain pure speculation but their ramifications pose important con- siderations for future foreign policy decisions in similar situations.

^ He states in his book, Che Guevara on Guerrilla Warfare, that three fundamental conclusions were revealed in the Cuban revolution: 1) Popular Forces can win a war against an army.

[188]
Che Guevara's Monument and Mausoleum in Santa Clara, Cuba.
.Removed when Guevara was captured was his 30,000-word, hand-written diary, a collection of his personal poetry, and a short story he authored about a young Communist guerrilla who learns to overcome his fears.^ Daniel James' book, The Complete Bolivian Diaries of Che Guevara and other Captured Documents lists every alias used by the guerrillas on pages 324-325.

^ Guevara, at this time, con- centrated on learning the techniques of guerrilla warfare.

^ Young woman of Argentine-German nationality who was Guevara's primary agent in Bolivia.

[189] His diary documented events of the guerrilla campaign in Bolivia[190] with the first entry on November 7, 1966 shortly after his arrival at the farm in Ñancahuazú, and the last dated October 7, 1967, the day before his capture. .The diary tells how the guerrillas were forced to begin operations prematurely because of discovery by the Bolivian Army, explains Guevara's decision to divide the column into two units that were subsequently unable to re-establish contact, and describes their overall unsuccessful venture.^ In particular, Daniel James' biography, Che Guevara, and his translations of the Bolivian diaries served as invaluable aids to this research.

^ Characterized by steep can- yons, mosquitoes, thin reeds, vines, and cacti, the site provided the necessary isolation for Che to begin the critical, initial steps of building an effective fighting force.11 Recruitment of Bolivian guerrillas to augment the Cuban contin- gent continued throughout the summer.

^ In July 1957, Guevara was promoted to "Commandante", the highest rank in the rebel army, and awarded command of the second column of the guerrilla force.

.It also records the rift between Guevara and the Communist Party of Bolivia that resulted in Guevara having significantly fewer soldiers than originally expected and shows that Guevara had a great deal of difficulty recruiting from the local populace, partly because of the fact that the guerrilla group had learned Quechua, unaware that the local language was actually Tupí-Guaraní.^ Bayo, a former officer in the Spanish Republican Army, had a great deal of guerrilla warfare ex- perience gained in Morrocco against the Arabs and in the Spanish Civil War.

^ Without the backing of a powerful communist party to develop widespread support among the populace the foco leadership must ignite the revolutionary spirit through their own actions.

^ On the following day the soldiers again attacked the group, killing one of the Bolivian guerrillas.

[191] As the campaign drew to an unexpected close, Guevara became increasingly ill. He suffered from ever-worsening bouts of asthma, and most of his last offensives were carried out in an attempt to obtain medicine.[192]
The Bolivian Diary was quickly and crudely translated by Ramparts magazine and circulated around the world.[193] .There are at least four additional diaries in existence—those of Israel Reyes Zayas (Alias "Braulio"), Harry Villegas Tamayo ("Pombo"), Eliseo Reyes Rodriguez ("Rolando")[157] and Dariel Alarcón Ramírez ("Benigno")[194]—each of which reveals additional aspects of the events.^ In addition to Che, three of his subordinates produced diaries: Israel Reyes Zayas (Alias "Braulio"), Harry Villegas Tamayo ("Pombo"), and Eliseo Reyes Rodriguez ("Rolando").1 These three Cuban army officers augment Che's revealing accounts of events during the ill-fated in- surgency.

^ The most fascinating aspect of Che Guevara's Bolivian campaign is the existance of four diaries outlining the day to day activities of the guerrillas.

In July 2008, the Bolivian government of Evo Morales unveiled Guevara's formerly sealed diaries composed in two frayed notebooks, along with a logbook and several black-and-white photographs. .At this event, Bolivia's vice minister of culture, Pablo Groux, expressed that there were plans to publish photographs of every handwritten page later in the year.^ How cool is it to have a faith that publishes long-anticipated theological treatises every few years or so?

[195] Meanwhile, in August 2009, anthropologists working for Bolivia's Justice Ministry discovered and unearthed five of Guevara's fellow guerrillas near the Bolivian town of Teoponte.[196]

Legacy

.The current court of opinion places Che on a continuum that teeters between viewing him as a misguided rebel, a coruscatingly brilliant guerrilla philosopher, a poet-warrior jousting at windmills, a brazen warrior who threw down the gauntlet to the bourgeoisie, the object of fervent paeans to his sainthood, or a mass murderer clothed in the guise of an avenging angel whose every action is imbricated in violence – the archetypal fanatical terrorist.^ Chuck(le) P.S. The Democrats are NEVER going to live that business 'down'....until they openly repudiate Mr. Bill and all who are associated with him.

^ Let's be clear: Americans of every political stripe were united in their outrage and grief, united in their determination to punish those who plotted the mass murder, and united behind the war in Afghanistan.

The contradictions of his ethos at various points in his life have created a complex character of unending duality.
.As a result of his perceived martyrdom, poetic invocations for class struggle, and desire to create the consciousness of a new man driven by moral rather than material incentives,[198] Guevara evolved into a quintessential icon of leftist-inspired movements.^ Pluss has not only delved into the neo-Nazi movement, he also has the experience of delving into the reaction of leftist groups and understanding the tension between arch-socialists and neo-Nazis.

An array of notable individuals have viewed Che Guevara as a hero;[199] for example, Nelson Mandela referred to him as "an inspiration for every human being who loves freedom"[165] while Jean-Paul Sartre described him as "not only an intellectual but also the most complete human being of our age."[200] Others who expressed their admiration include authors Graham Greene who remarked that Che "represented the idea of gallantry, chivalry, and adventure"[201], and Susan Sontag who expounded that "(Che's) goal was nothing less than the cause of humanity itself."[202] In the black community, philosopher Frantz Fanon professed Guevara to be "the world symbol of the possibilities of one man"[203], while Black Panther Party head Stokely Carmichael eulogized that "Che Guevara is not dead, his ideas are with us."[204] Praise has been reflected throughout the political spectrum, with the anarcho-capitalist / libertarian theorist Murray Rothbard extolling Guevara as a "heroic figure", lamenting after his death that "more than any man of our epoch or even of our century, (Che) was the living embodiment of the principle of revolution",[205] while journalist Christopher Hitchens commented that "[Che's] death meant a lot to me and countless like me at the time, he was a role model, albeit an impossible one for us bourgeois romantics insofar as he went and did what revolutionaries were meant to do — fought and died for his beliefs."[206] Guevara remains a beloved national hero to many in Cuba, where his image adorns the $3 Cuban Peso and school children begin each morning by pledging "We will be like Che."[207] In his native homeland of Argentina, where high schools bear his name,[208] numerous Che museums dot the country, which in 2008 unveiled a 12 foot bronze statue of him in his birth city of Rosario.[209] Additionally, Guevara has been sanctified by some Bolivian campesinos[210] as "Saint Ernesto", to whom they pray for assistance.[211]
A mural of Che Guevara on the side of a house in Derry, Northern Ireland. Guevara is a popular icon among the Irish Republican community due to his leftist views and Irish heritage. The Irish wording on the mural translates as :"They may kill the revolutionary, but never the revolution".
Conversely, Jacobo Machover, an exiled opposition author, dismisses the hero-worshipping and portrays him as a ruthless executioner.[212] .Detractors have theorized that in much of Latin America, Che-inspired revolutions had the practical result of reinforcing brutal militarism and internecine conflict for many years.^ America and our friends are in a conflict that demands much of us.

^ According to some reports I've picked up over the last year or so, Che didn't think much of other people who had darker skin than his.

[213] In an assessment of Guevara, British historian Hugh Thomas acknowledge's that Che was a "brave, sincere and determined man who was also obstinate, narrow, and dogmatic."[214] At the end of his life, according to Thomas, "he seems to have become convinced of the virtues of violence for its own sake", while "his influence over Castro for good or evil" grew after his death, as Fidel took up many of his views. In Thomas' assessment "as in the case of Martí, or Lawrence of Arabia, failure has brightened, not dimmed the legend."[214] Alvaro Vargas Llosa of The Independent Institute has hypothesized that Guevara’s contemporary followers "delude themselves by clinging to a myth", while describing Guevara as "Marxist Puritan" who employed his rigid power to suppress dissent, while also operating as a "cold-blooded killing machine".[213] Llosa has also accused Guevara's "fanatical disposition" as being the linchpin of the "Sovietization" of the Cuban revolution, speculating that he possessed a "total subordination of reality to blind ideological orthodoxy."[213] Guevara remains a hated figure amongst many in the Cuban exile and Cuban-American community of the United States, who view him with animosity as "the butcher of La Cabaña."[215]
.Despite his polarized status, a high-contrast monochrome graphic of his face has become one of the world's most universally merchandized and objectified images,[216][217] found on an endless array of items, including t-shirts, hats, posters, tattoos, and bikinis,[218] ironically contributing to the consumer culture he despised.^ We begin on Earth the Hell many of us may eventually face, where the presence of unforgiven and unrepentent sinners becomes unbearable, particularly when we're one of them.

^ For a relatively short period in the turbulent 1960's Che was one of the world's most renowned revolutionary leaders.

^ Most secularists themselves would probably concede that these ideas constitute a reigning orthodoxy within many universities, including some with religious affiliations.

Yet, Guevara still remains a transcendent figure both in specifically political contexts[219] and as a wide-ranging popular icon of youthful rebellion.[220]

Notes

  1. ^ a b c The date of birth recorded on his birth certificate was June 14, 1928, although one tertiary source, (Julia Constenla, quoted by Jon Lee Anderson), asserts that he was actually born on May 14 of that year. Constenla alleges that she was told by an unidentified astrologer that his mother, Celia de la Serna, was already pregnant when she and Ernesto Guevara Lynch were married and that the date on the birth certificate of their son was forged to make it appear that he was born a month later than the actual date to avoid scandal.

  92. ^ Different sources cite different numbers of executions, with some of the discrepancy resulting from which deaths to attribute directly to Guevara or to the regime as a whole. Anderson (1997) gives the number specifically at La Cabaña prison as 55 (p. 387.), while also stating that as a whole "several hundred people were officially tried and executed across Cuba" (p. 387). (Castañeda 1998) notes how historians differ on the number killed and place it as anywhere from 200-700 nationwide (p. 143). This is supported by Lago who gives the figure as 216 executions ordered by Guevara across Cuba in three years (1957-1960), which were, according to Lago, "all carried out without affording the victims due process of law."
