This is the bullshit double standard of the West. They criticized Che and Fidel for executing the Cuban people's former oppressors, torturers and executioners, because Che learned that had Arbenz in Guatemala protected himself from the old guard by arming the peasants, he would not have been replaced by the CIA and hundreds of thousands of Maya Indians would not have been massacred.
The Sandinista made the same mistake of letting the Somoza goons loose, even releasing many from prison to teach them that their revolution was a compasionate one. The same men joined the Contras and gang raped, mass murdered, bombed and terrorized the Meztizo Indians, until they succumbed to fight the Sandinista on behalf of Reagan's "freedom fighters".
Even with taking out the 400 or so leaders of Batista's old guard, the CIA/Mafia/Cuban terrorists were still able to attempt to assassinate Fidel over 600 times... and they finally killed Camilo and assassinated Che in Bolivia. And yet, people still want to bring up the "brutal executions" by Che and Fidel. Che's reply was that "this is a revolution... people get killed" .. "how many Englishmen were executed by the American revolutionaries"? he went on to ask.
The American double standard and naivete is so well depicted in The Godfather when Michael tells Kay: "My father is no different than any powerful man, any man with power, like a president or senator."
Kay Adams: "Do you know how naive you sound, Michael? Presidents and senators don't have men killed."
Michael: "Oh. Who's being naive, Kay?"
