Fascinating article about Che Guevara’s last moments:
Felix Rodriguez received the order from the Bolivian military high command. There was a simple code: 500 meant Che Guevara, 600 dead, 700 alive.
500 – 600 was the command.
Mr Rodriguez wanted confirmation on the crackly radio line. It was repeated: 500 – 600.
Mr Rodriguez broke the news to Che that there was to be no trial. “Che turned white… before saying: ‘It’s better this way, I should have died in combat.’ “
It’s too bad none of the idiots wearing his face on a t-shirt understand how much blood his “revolution” truly consumed… or how his brutal violence encouraged more of the same.
