Guevara’s actions pale compared to others

To the Editor,

Re: Supporters of efforts in Cuba misguided, Letters, April 16.

If Randy O’Donnell, thinks Che Guevara was a “stone-cold killer” for executing 1,897 Batista torturers, murderers and gangsters, what would he call George Bush who killed 600,000 Iraqis, most of whom were civilians, women and children?

Or for that matter, what does he call an economic system that allows 20 million children to die annually of malnutrition and lack of potable water, when this could be rectified by a tiny fraction of the world’s military budget?
