Che`s comments on individuality appear to be unattributed rumor. He commanded a prison camp for five months shortly after the war, but the assertion that he would slaughter idealists is a bit of a leap. His biographic "Motorcycle Diaries" is quite enjoyable, and I think it is the idealism within that is appealing to us silly librul types. Still, a cute film.

This is not a debate about what Che did, it`s a bunch of enterpretations that different people have.

The motive of Che became popular as a post- 60`s and 70`s reaction, and all it means is revolution. Not communism or executions, just revolution. Beside, he has long hair, beard and a beret. He is angry, and he wants change.

Like people aged 13- 17 (or in puberty) and usually as you become an adult and aware of the realities of life and unfairness of the world, you want to change things. In addition, in search of your own identity, you want to create a distance between you and your parents - revolt agains the "establishment".

Teenagers don`t give a c*ap about communism or Cuba. All they need is a tough looking dude with long hair and the word "revolution" - and the t-shirt sells it self.

It forgot the person who knows about che gueverra and what he did, is a teenager, wears the shirt, and isn`t a communist.

Assumptions get you nowhere in life.

Some many people out there don`t know squat about the subject they try to shove in everyone`s face. This is a great example of it.

@Creabhain: Me too. Of course, I never wear it in public. Wouldn`t want people to think I`m a commie or a hipster.

I wear this t-shirt. I know his actual history but i`m not a communist or a socialist or any "ist". I just like the t-shirt. It`s a garment not a political statement.

Fidel was never more than a lukewarm communist to begin with. He was always much more interested in nationalism than the international communist revolution which led to the falling out between Castro and Che.

Wearing a Che shirt is like popping your collar only without the collar.

"So there is no difference between violence and diplomacy?"

Picking a single example, the US used diplomacy with the native Americans did they?

He did bad things to achieve his goals.

So has the US, and practically every other nation over the years. Some nations are more fashionable than others though.

There`s not a huge amount of difference.

"Green is the new Red."

This is the most profound and factual statement I have seen on IAB in a while.

Fantastic... I love that people are so blind to what this man really did. This video hit the nail right on the head.

The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta, held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous.

Ask someone wearing a Che shirt what he did, and all you will get is a confused look, and a shrug

It`s pretty sad that we have to take a "look at his darker, more sinister side." As apposed to what?? it`s not like he was a cupcake baker or fostered kittens. Liberals plaster this guys face on everything, actors wear his face on tshirts to red carpet events. Commies are everywhere. Green is the new Red.
