On This Day

On October 9, 1967, socialist revolutionary and guerilla leader Che Guevara, age 39, is killed by the Bolivian army. The U.S.-military-backed Bolivian forces captured Guevara on October 8 while battling his band of guerillas in Bolivia and assassinated him the following day. His hands were cut off as proof of death and his body was buried in an unmarked grave. In 1997, Guevara’s remains were found and sent back to Cuba, where they were reburied in a ceremony attended by President Fidel Castro and thousands of Cubans.

    “Assassinated…..”
    Leftist propaganda. Executed would be a better word, but too good of a fate for him.

    Should read ‘executed for crimes against humanity’

    He is “accused” of ordering people killed? Let there be no confusion, dude whacked more than a few people and ordered the killing of many others. I like some of the History Channel’s programming but sometimes they are so full of sh$$.

    “Assassinated…..” That’s an odd term for “vermin control”.

  12. John Coffey says:

    How much money or how much power does one have to have to be assassinated instead of murdered?

  13. Aesop says:

    Leaders get assassinated.

    Terrorists get executed.
