Che Guevara - A Prophet?!!

Things that you never expect do come true in this life. Recently, some media reports came up with this interesting anecdote. When the relations between the United States and Cuba started to thaw, the European Union (EU) sent a delegation to Cuba. Many of the members of the EU already had good relations with the Havana regime anyway.

The delegation met with Raul Castro and the 30-minute meeting took two hours. Toward the end of the meeting, Raul told the delegation of a conversation in the beginning of the 1960s between him, his brother Fidel and Ernesto Che Guevara. Raul had asked Che something like, “When will these Americans understand that we will do them no harm and restore their relationship with us?” Che replied, “When a black man becomes American president or an Argentine goes to the Vatican as the Pope,” apparently meaning “never.”

Wow! If  true, simply amazing! What a visionary Che was!!
