An excellent refresher on Cuba and terrorist, mass-murderer and liberal t-shirt icon hero Che Guevara. This will put in perspective the utter obscenity of Obama’s efforts to legitimize a regime as depraved as the Castros.
On the Friday after Thanksgiving 1962, Cuban agents planned to detonate 500 kilos of TNT inside Macy’s, Gimbel’s, Bloomingdale’s and Manhattan’s Grand Central Terminal. Che Guevara was the head of Cuba’s “Foreign Liberation Department” at the time.
On September 11th 2001, roughly 50,000 people worked at the World Trade Center. Macy’s alone gets roughly 50,000 shoppers on Black Friday. Castro and Che planned their Manhattan holocaust short weeks after Nikita Khrushchev foiled their plans for an even bigger one. “Say hello to my little friends!” Castro had dreamed of yelling at us in October of 1962, right before he imagined the mushroom clouds blooming. But for the prudence of the Butcher of Budapest, Castro and Che might have pulled it off.
“What?!” Khrushchev gasped upon reading Castro’s telegram on Oct. 28 1962. “Is he proposing that we start a nuclear war? That we launch missiles from Cuba? But that is insane! Remove them (our missiles) as soon as possible! Before its too late!” instructed the Soviet premier.
So much for the Camelot fable of JFK “standing up to the Russians,” during the Missile Crisis. Khrushchev “blinked” alright. But at Fidel Castro and Che Guevara’s genocidal lust–not at JFK’s flaccid threats.
“I’m proud of the path of Osama bin Laden,” gushed Ilich Ramírez Sánchez from a French prison in 2002. Ramirez was also known during the 1970’s as “Carlos the Jackal,” and “The World’s Most Wanted Terrorist.” In 1967 Ramirez-Sanchez was an eager recruit into Cuba’s “guerrilla” (terror) training camps started by Che Guevara in 1959. “Bin Laden has followed a trail I myself blazed,” he continued during an interview with the London-based pan-Arab daily Al-Hayat. “I followed news of the September 11 attacks on the United States non-stop from the beginning. I can’t describe that wonderful feeling of relief!”
