Have you guys ever thought of what would have happened if che guevara was succesfull with his guerilla troop in 1967 and didnt get killed ? would he have been succesful with his marxist views? A bolivian socialist revoulution ? What would have happened with the rest of the countries south(latin)-american countries ? :confused:

Imagine Che takes over the country.
How does the U.S. react?
Likely with an invasion, so we either have another Vietnam, ore a quick reastablishment of the old Regime.
i can't see Che beeing part of a Government for long, he'd simply take up the fight in another latina american country untiel he is eventually killed.

I would imagine Bolivia could be an ideal place to nuture a long lived socialist revolutionary movement a la "shining path". It has some of the best terrainn in the world to conduct a guerilla campaign in, it is astonishingly poor and the populus has long been bitter about seeing its nothing of its wealth and I believe it has SA's largest native american population which has naturally been exploited for a good long time. However Bolivia is the poorest South American nation for a reason, as it is completely landlocked and has suffered from political instability even by South American standards. I would imagine that the US would react to any socialist regime in Bolivia by first cutting off any goverment aid, secondly trying to cut off its food imports (Bolivia wasn't self sufficient in this reguard untill quite reccently) and of course giving military aid to any counter revolutionary group that emerges to oppose the new government.
