This morning, visitors to Lionhead Studio's webpage were greeted with the iconic visage of Cuban revolutionary Che Guevara.

Under the black and white image is a single quote from Guevara:

"At the risk of seeming ridiculous, let me say that the true revolutionary is guided by a great feeling of love."
Che Guevara (1928 - 1967)

Clicking on the thumbs up brings visitors to a page that includes the word "followers" in the html and features not only Che's picture but two bullet riddled scrolls partially rolled down the sides of the page. There are also tiny insects fluttering about.

Clicking on the thumbs down brings visitors to a similar page with "subjects" in the html. The scrolls are a different color, there are no bullet holes, and the insects are replaced with what seems to be bits of floating dust.

The page also has a faded, hard to notice number six stamped next to Che's head. In six days Lionhead's Peter Molyneux will be speaking at a Microsoft Game Studio press conference to help kick off GamesCom in Cologne.

I think it's fair to say we can expect some news. But what will it be?

So I'm just gonna link to [www.independent.org] and state that no one really knows how many people Guevara ordered the death of. It's somewhere between 200-2000.

This is less than the civilian casualties of the current wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. And less than the civ casualties of the Gulf War. ...and heck a few days ago were the anniversaries of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, which were basically war crimes against mostly civilian targets.

...the point is that everyone in here rankled about an image of Che should also be pissed off at websites that put up images of Bush 1 and Bush 2. Ditto FDR and Churchill. And especially Truman.
