I don't really like Chavez. To me he simply wants to get attention. I have no idea what his government is like, so I'm limiting my views to what I've seen and read about him personally.
Oh it's not only about atention, believe me, ask away if you ever feel curious.
As for Che, of course he did bad things. It was war, and war is always disgusting and ugly. I have compared the good he did with the bad, and he is still my hero. I'm not saying he's perfect. There are several things he did that disgust me, but it's not enough for me to say he's an "evil commie." He did much more good than bad, and I believe he left the Cuban people in a much better state than they had been with Batista. And having spoken to many Cubans regarding the subject, they seem to agree.
"Evil commie" is propaganda, a brainwasher's term, if we do agree on something, it is on the use that has been given to those words.
But, that does not mean that my opinion is any different about Che Guevara, i'm not to trying to be offensive, but this man killed people exactly like Pinochet and "El Chivo" did, without a chance for justification, without mercy, without trial was it really necessary? absolutely not, was it worth it? absolutely not, know what they eat back in Cuba? "masa cárnica", not even real meat, their medicines are obsolete, freedom of speech is completely repressed, even talking bad about Castro is a punishable offense.
I also know some people that believe that Cuba is in it's worse times, i guess it's your word against mine, but i'd rather believe in mine with the amount of cubans living in Little Havana, there is certainly a reason to why those people went to Miami on improvised rafts in a sea filled with sharks.
Marcos is a near saint. I know and have talked to people who have not only met him, but worked with him to help the people in Chiapas. He cares about the poor of Mexico and their well being. Do the EZLN seem frightening? Certainly. Are they dangerous people? Only if you are. Do they simply want social justice for themselves? yes. Unfortunately, achieving social justice isn't easy.
A man who calls himself "The Sub-Commander" because he tells the people that they are the real commander seems more to me like something Obama or Chavez would say, all flash, no substance.
As i said, i'll reserve my comments on this guy, but if i have to say something it's that in my opinion he doesn't seem to be any different to what has come before.
