Che Shirts - For Good, Not Evil

Columbian Army to FARC Leaders:

Comrades! The Worker's Paradise is close at hand! Just a little more sacrifice, and we will have our Utopia!

Alfonso Cano, our newest Dear Leader, requests the transfer of selected hostages for intense negotiations with the imperialist forces. He is close to a breakthrough in the negotiations that our murdered founder, Manuel Marulanda, and our strongest supporter, Hugo Chavez, started long ago. He has the capitalists on their knees, Comrades!

On July 2nd, two helicopters from a sympathetic non-governmental organization will come to pick up the hostages. The high-value hostages - the three US contractors and that bothersome French woman are to be included in the group of 15 - shall be escorted by two of our own in addition to the security forces that arrive with the helicopters.

The helicopters will be unmarked, but the security forces will be wearing Che Guevara t-shirts, just like the trust-fund kids in San Francisco! Give them your cooperation, Comrades.

Workers of the World Unite!

And the rest is history! Che Guevara t-shirts on capitalists?! What will they think of next? Ushanka's worn by American conservatives?!
