Happy Thanksgiving! (From Fidel and Che)

Pages: 1 2

“We will bring the war to the imperialist enemies’ very home,” raved Che Guevara in his message to the Tri-Continental Conference, “to his places of work and recreation. The imperialist enemy must feel like a hunted animal wherever he moves. Thus we’ll destroy him! These hyenas are fit only for extermination. We must keep our hatred alive and fan it to paroxysm!”

“The more I get to know Che Guevara,” beamed Benicio del Toro to In Touch magazine as he prepped for the role of Guevara in Steven Soderbergh’s homage to the cruel revolutionary, “the more I respect him. Che was just one of those guys who walked the walk and talked the talk. There’s just something cool about people like that. ”

Fortunately, on Nov. 17, 1962, J. Edgar Hoover’s FBI foiled the “walking of the walk” that Castro and Che had planned for us “hyenas” on Black Friday. Cuban agents had targeted Macy’s, Gimbel’s, Bloomingdales, and Manhattan’s Grand Central Station with a dozen incendiary devices and 500 kilos of TNT. The holocaust was set for detonation the following week, on the day after Thanksgiving.

A little perspective: the March 2004 Madrid subway blasts, all 10 of the explosions that killed and maimed almost 2000 people, used a grand total of 100 kilos of TNT. Castro and Che’s agents planned to set off five times that explosive power in the three biggest department stores on earth — and on the year’s biggest shopping day, for good measure.

Thousands of New Yorkers, probably mostly women and children, were to be incinerated and entombed.

Castro and Che planned their Manhattan holocaust just weeks after Nikita Khrushchev foiled their plans for an even bigger massacre during the Cuban Missile Crisis. “If the missiles had remained,” Che Guevara confided to The London Daily Worker the following month, “we would have used them against the very heart of the U.S., including New York City.”

Castro knew the Soviet missiles in Cuba’s possession were nuclear-armed. The Cuban dictator revealed to Robert McNamara during a meeting in 1992 that, in fact, the missiles’ nuclear capacity was “precisely why [he] urged Khrushchev to launch them.”

Soviet ambassador to Cuba during the Missile Crisis, Alexander Alexiev, reports a fascinating — if unsurprising — datum about those days. While Castro was begging, threatening, even trying to trick Khrushchev into launching a nuclear strike against the U.S., while he was ranting and yelling and waving his arms about grabbing his Czech machine gun and “fighting the Yankee invaders to the last man!” a “fearful” Castro and Che were also making reservations with Alexiev for a first-class seats in the Soviet embassy’s bomb shelter.

    Now the US has to be worrying about a nuclear armed Venezuela with an equally crazy communist backed by an equally crazy Islamist in Iran. Does it any worse? It does. We no have Islamists in our back yard ready to take control once the devastation of nuclear attack is cleared.

    Strange that this never became popular knowledge. I guess it was too much of a threat to the government which might have been forced to do something about the dirty little communists in Cuba.

    It will be great if the U$ finally burns.

      That would be the same U.S. that created the devices you're now using and which fights and dies to protect your slimy likes to freely express themselves. Here's hoping you get to witness your family's demise the same way you wish for us.

      • some guy

        "..and which fights fo liberate you from your oil supplies" haha

        While being an american and certainly now wanting this country to burn, i suggest we be honest with ourselves and admit that very few people in the larger world use anything made in the US now-a-days. That's because due to the high costs of labor (and since we want to maintain a reasonably high standard of living we can't pay the workers any less than we do) anything manufactured in the US will be overpriced compared to even the exact the same thing manufactured somewhere, say, in Bangladesh.
        We manage to maintain what little manufacturing we have by heavy subsidies from the govt, and the (completely un-free-market btw) import barriers.

        Just a pointer.

          "While being an american and certainly NOT wanting this country to burn"

          what a typo !!! : )

    • Chiggles

      Rest assured, your pathetic little country, whichever it may be, will burn along with it.

      It would be even better if you and the rest of your feckless brood were sent to Gitmo or back to Iran, devil-worshipping parasite.

      You can only imagine what thousands of U$ warheads will do to the rest of the world.

    Thank you, Humberto, for another winner! The useful idiot left in this country has a long history of embracing our enemies, and they continue to do so as if through a mass hypnotic spell, even after the false idols they worship have been exposed as our bitter antagonists. Little do they know that Fidel holds them in contempt for their stupidity. The sad reality is that the same people who greeted Castro with such deference then would do so even today, and might gladly lay the TNT wire for him at the NY stores on Black Friday after kissing his cancerous ass.

      John Wayne said it best, probably about the wacko left….."Life is hard; it's harder if you're stupid"

    Humberto , the truth doesn't phase the Che T-Shirt wearers or the likes of Benito , Glover , Penn , Belafone or the "Clueless in Hollwood" useful idiots.

    Communist Cuba is a problem today still because although President Kennedy endorsed the Bay of Pigs invasion to Cuba in April 1961. At the very last moment, just before the troops were to land at the Bay of Pigs, President Kennedy canceled the support of the American troops at the insistence of his brother Robert F. Kennedy, then Attorney General of the U.S.A. Also, President Kennedy's real solution to the Cuban missile crisis was achieved by promising the Soviets that he would keep America's hands off Castro and Communist Cuba forever.

    Sorry, dear Humberto Fontova, but the quotation of "Tri-continental message", the last and one of the most terrible writings of the "Guerrillero heroico", is wrong. This is the real one (in Spanish):
    "Hay que llevar la guerra hasta donde el enemigo la lleve: a su casa, a sus lugares de diversion. Hay que impedirle tener un minuto de tranquilidad, un minuto de sosiego fuera de sus cuarteles, y aun dentro de los mismos: atacarlo donde quiera que se encuentre; hacerle sentir una fiera acosada por cada lugar que transite. Entonces su moral ira decayendo. Se hara mas bestial todavia, pero se notaran los signos del decaimiento que asoma."
    It's enough to consider that Che Guevara was one of the forerunners or theorists of terrorism of the second half of the XXth and the beginnings of the XXIst centuries. But it is not necessary to add to his words apocryphal ideas.
