It is an indisputable and now-widely-known fact that on this day 41 years ago, the CIA assassinated Argentine revolutionary, visionary and luminary Ernseto “Che” Guevara in the jungles of Bolivia. From the time that the ever-smiling, cigar-puffing, fearless-beyond-fearless hero had helped Fidel Castro foment the Cuban Revolution and overthrow the horrific dictatorship of Fulgencio Batista, which was backed not only by the American regime but The Syndicate led by international Zionist criminal Meyer Lansky, Washington wanted Che in the dirt. And in La Higuera, October 9th, 1967, the hegemon got what it wanted. Using Bolivian special forces as proxies and the Barrientos coup regime as cover, the CIA had Guevara shot to death. What isn’t well-known at all is that the usurping Zionist entity had its hands in the assassination as well.

Four months into the internationally declared Ebola emergency that has devastated west Africa, Cuba leads the world in direct medical support to fight the epidemic. The US and Britain have sent thousands of troops and, along with other countries, promised aid – most of which has yet to materialise. But, as the World Health Organisation has insisted, what’s most urgently needed are health workers. The Caribbean island, with a population of just 11m and official per capita income of $6,000 (£3,824), answered that call before it was made. It was first on the Ebola frontline and has sent the largest contingent of doctors and nurses – 256 are already in the field, with another 200 volunteers on their way.
While western media interest has faded with the receding threat of global infection, hundreds of British health service workers have volunteered to join them. The first 30 arrived in Sierra Leone last week, while troops have been building clinics. But the Cuban doctors have been on the ground in force since October and are there for the long haul.

The West keeps calling dictators those leaders who are raising cultural, healthcare and educational standards, Che Guevara’s daughter Aleida told RT, adding that her father would certainly give a hand to those changing peoples’ lives for the better.
RT: Miss Guevara, it’s a pleasure to see you here in Moscow again.
Now, you once said once that your father’s ideas will last as long as there is injustice in the world. If your father was alive, what do you think would upset him the most today?
Aleida Guevara: Actually, I don’t really like having to deal with this sort of question about my father, who is not with us anymore. It’s difficult for me to speak for him or say what he would be doing. But judging by the speeches he made, by his personal notes and letters, I can say that he always cared a lot for his people and for the poor in particular. And I am convinced that he would be deeply concerned over what is happening in the Arab world now. He would definitely be thinking of ways to help. He was always respectful of people. And though he criticized socialism quite heavily, he had a lot of respect for the Soviet people, too. That’s why I believe he would have been deeply frustrated over what is going on between Russia and Ukraine – after all, these people have lived in harmony for so many years… That’s why all of this aggression looks so unnatural to us. So yes, I think my father would take a keen interest. Continue reading ‘West has no idea what a dictatorship is’ – Che Guevara’s daughter to RT
