The Top Ten

Thaksin Shinawatra
He is the great corruptionist and using his richness to get permanent power. Also he tries hard to rule all of power in democracy system, parliament, government, and court by changing the current constitution for him and his relatives.
Killed over 2, 000 innocents to fight against drugs, betrayed his own country by persuading a country close-by to invade into the northeast part of Thailand just for his own petroleum investment business purpose.
He is one of the most stupid guy forever that chose the wrong side to be the prime minister of the most beautiful country as thailand. Just the first decision that he made, everything has been destroyed until now and only words that can say are ' he is the cold blood monster ever and ever.

2Yingluck Shinawatra
Most stupid Thai, The first only one leader who visit more than 50 country around the world within 2 years
She is stupid of both Thai & English languages.
She is puppetry of her brother.

3Adolf Hitler
Adolf Hitler was a crazy man. Thought only of himself and world domination. Seriously, nothing is more messed up than that. But seriously, George W. Bush? If I had to choose between sane and insane, I'd choose sane hands down. Hitler was EVIL. George Bush should be shoved out of the way to make some room for Hitler. Hitler is beyond worthy of the number one award for the Worst World Leader. Hitler, bow down for your fans as they applause your no where near nice personality that will break mirrors.
Hitler was an insane, maniacal mass murderer with a country behind him who did little to stop him no matter how bad things got.

No leader can do such things as he did without the complicity of many others.
He's under bush? People can be stupid as H* sometimes. Holocaust? Taking over world? Hmm, which one is worst, a U.S. president who is sane, or an insane, power hungry, jew hating maniac?

4Hun Sen
He is a good friend with Thaksin. These guy know only how to make money and benefits for their family and friends ( who return the benefits) by taking the advantage of the country.
A good example of devil...
He's an idiots.
Everything he do is not for a country but for his family and all followers wealth only.
He tries to take an ownership of the country, same like Thaksin does with Thailand.
He leaves the large amount of people stay poor and uneducated in rural areas but his family and all his closed-relations are become richer and wealthier.

5Kim Jong II
His family has controlled everything in North Korea only to please themselves but not North Korean people. Korean has been divided for many decades. Families have been separated and if someone dare to escape out of the country, people behind them will be killed. What on earth this can be called a country! Please free the people. We are in the 21st century! Human can walk in the space now. All the thing that Kim Jong II and his followers have done can not be legal at all!
I feel sorry for the people who live in North Korea because He brainwash almost everyone from birth to Adulthood. The people see him as a divine god rather than a corrupt leader that he truly is.
Everyday I'll bet Koreans wake up and wonder, "Jesus what is he gonna do today!? "

6Saddam Hussein
The maniac who Invaded Iran, Kuwait and said that" Jews, Persians ( Iranians) and Flies are useless" deserves to be on the top of this list.
one of the worst leaders and most notorius criminals in the world


This is worst world leaders, not most evil people. Hitler, although evil and insane, knew how to run a country very well. Saddam did NOT know how to run a country, plus he was insane, evil, and all around a pretty bad guy. I mean, come on, his name means "The Destroyer" which his mother named him because his birth took longer then usual and it was more painful then usual. (Which is what his leadership ended up being)

7Osama Bin Laden
Yeah I realize bin laden isn't one of the worst - but I'm saying this because of the tragic date that is 9/11.. A bloke that never shaves and is always in pajamas did this.. Ok jokes aside he was VERY bad.. By the way.. Surprised that colonel Gaddafi ain't on the list..
Maybe he only killed 30,000 but he wrecked the world trade towers. And ruined part of the pentagon. Why is osama only 12th put him in the list on maybe 8th or 6th. Gosh, I disaggre with this.
Why did he do such mean and stupid thingd. I can't even think that he killed his own sons and family to commit suicide and cause terrorist attacks.

8Kim Jong-Un
The adventures of kim jong un
Directed and written by kim jong un
The Great Killer. He kills even his relatives
At least his father kept the country relatively together (although pish poor for the normal people, those who stood by him got money and power). This guy? Even his own relatives and advisers can't predict.

9Somchai Wongsawatt
True puppetry of Thaksin, selfish and ignorant of the well-being of the nation.
Non sense man, like a cow just walking follow taksin, same as Yingluck!
Corruptionist & puppetry of Thaksin.

10Abhisit Vejjajiva
Inaccurate. He was a good Prime Minister and wish him to be Prime Minister again
He's a prick. A total liar who doesn't stand behind his own words. Ordered extrajudicial killing of 99 people during the Red Shirt demonstration in Bangkok.
He is the Worst World Leaders

The Contenders

11Pol Pot
Hitler and Stalin might be evil, but at least Hitler got Germany out of the recession and Stalin modernized Russia. As bad as the other leaders were, I don't think anyone would match up to Pol Pot. Other dictators might be evil, but Pol Pot was an idiot who almost threw Cambodia back to the stone ages.


Killing 1/3 of your people doesn't fulfill the service aspect of the job of leader
He is the worst leader in the world
More comments about Pol Pot

12George W. Bush
He lied to America to drag it into a war that killed hundreds of thousands of non-combatants and traded those human lives for money so he and his friends could get more rich off of death. That is evil in my opinion. There were zero weapons of mass destruction! When he became President the US economy was great and had a government surplus - when he finished with us we had the worst economy since the great depression and highest unemployment, yet him and all his buddies were richer than ever.
He was not a leader. Ruined the image of America. Heck, that Iraqi dude did the right thing. He deserved that shoe...


This guy plummeted our debt. He was stupid. Hitler was smart but had evil Ideas. Depends on what kind of worst he means. Evil or stupid?

13Nattawut Saikua
He works for Thaksin Shinawatra and does everything for money. He's one of the red shirt who ordered people to burn town hall in Bangkok.
He work for Thaksin, for money only not difference from his boss.
Talkative but nonsense. Have any knowledge about job. Just speech for violence and money.

14Yaowapa Wongsawat
The woman behind most corruptions in Thailand
Do everything for her family and cousin- Taksin Yingluck and Somchai. There is no virtue in heart.
She still be corruption with her family
More comments about Yaowapa Wongsawat

15Barack Obama
Talks a good talk, but rarely holds true to his word. Rarely has done anything on his own. Most things that he is attributed with is plagiarized from others. Things he encourages are not inline with the majority of Americans. Is it for the people by the people, or for the people by the government. What President gets involved with intellectual lawsuits? Why do you cut the foundation of our financial structure (oil/gas) when we are struggling? Why we are at it let us change the health care system that no one really wants. Name me something that "stands out" about his presidency that says great leader. If you do then I'll change my mind. Good Luck!
This man will go down in history as the worst social experiment in American has ever produced! He has drastically weakened not only the U.S. and world economy but has weakened the U.S. 's foreign relations standing to a point that chaos is igniting around the world against us. He is more dangerous to the U.S. than al-Qaeda and it is amazing that he may get re-elected for a second term.
I agree obama being one of the worst us presidents and I voted for him because he is the most overrated president ever in any country. By the way TearsofaClown France was never socialist, Germany was national socialist or nazi it's really a different thing because Hitler hated communism, and Russian empire(just before soviet union) was much worse than Soviet Union Lenin actually made Russian economy better and he made poor peoples life much better.

16Joseph Stalin
During world war 2 many people in for example Estonia or Poland who did not agree with Stalin and the soviet republic, were taken from their homes and sent to "working camps" or were torured and killed by the KGB.

One survivor of the Gulag says that his wifes uncle and the ucles wife had been arrested. Before the uncles wife were allowed to leave she had heard her husband being dragged into a torture chamber. When she were allowed to leave she entered the chamber she could she her husband. His feet had been burned and the skin had peeled off. His hands had been tied behind his back with barbed wire. He also said: "and if I'm not mistaken his eyes had been gouged out and his lips cut off.

If you ask a random person on the street if they could name an event during world war 2, there is a very big chance that they will say "The holocaust". The problem is that not many people know about the crimes made by the soviets.
But at last countries who were occupied by soviet are now independent.


Really? Obama and Bush? Really? Over Stalin? Some American people sure are retarded. Go live under Stalin's rule, dorks!
Wow! There really are some stupid people out there. Bush and Obama over Stalin, Mao, Hitler? Stalin is responsible for the death of 20 million of his own people. What the hell do they teach in schools these days?

17Jatuporn Prompan
Order to kill the people who support him and give all his fault to the other person
Received a lot of money from Taksin to get rid The Abisit Goverment by the protester
Should not be born. Such a big liar and corrupted person. Encouraged his followers to set fire to nearby shopping malls in the area of their rally.
I hated Jatuporn who orders to burned Thailand. He make everthing for himself not Thai people

20Surapong Tovichakchaikul
He is Taksis's slave who try to ruin Thailand
No royal to the country, only follow Thaksin's policy with their own benefits.
The greedy man look for his own benefits only.

21Ferdinand Marcos
The 2nd most corrupt leader of all time.
If he was never leader of the Philippines, the country would be first world by now!

22Mao ZeDong
China still thinks he was a great leader and an amazing man...

Yet we all know that no leader has killed more of its own people than mao zedong.

He killed more than hitler and stalin put together yet people in china act like he is a god because the T.V. shows make him out to be an amazing hero
Despite Hitler being evil and killing so many, leadership wise he was actually quite good. He defied major powers and saved Germany from horrible economical troubles. Because of that, I voted for my second least favorite leader. And I don't think Bin Laden qualifies for this list, as he's a terrorist not a leader, and the queen of England is more of a public figure than an actual leader.
#1 murderer in world history. This tyrant destroyed the moral sense that China was gaining at the time. If this man was alive today this world would be in chaos.

23Idi Amin

29Kasit Piromya
He was leader to expropriate at Suwanna-bhumi Airport that's damage famous of Thailand, This event made him became minister of Foreign Ministry. he can purify from crime to minster. best of baddest for him and partisanใ
This deputy chair of the policy committee within the Democrat Party is the purse behind Abhisit and the core leaders of cronies. Most are not royalists but are greedy merchants who have paid assassins to kill each other's mistresses and toyboys.

30Chalerm Yubamrung
Corruption. Dominate his son to police without qualities.
Stupid, no brain, knows only corruption. Only knows how to luck Thaksin feet. Another very vulgar and uneducated man in the government of Yingluck
Cheat and lair, declare himself as the criminal fugitive Thaksin Shinnawat's slave. Make himself rich by corruption and support his sons do wrong.

Rapist leader & Genocide leader
He is the second gen Nazi. The millitary is everywhere.

What? He should be in the Top 3

37Benigno Aquino III
He is dumb for a president. Lacking in leadership, vision and he is reactive response to calamities. He also lie just about everything just to boost his ego. Clearly the worst president Philippines has ever had.
Aquino is the worst ever president of the Philippines... He's doing nothing to uplift the lives of filipino people. Thus, he's good protecting the interest of his family corporation, political buddies, friends loyal to him. He cannot control his corrupt government...
The dumbest president of the Philippines ever had.

39Hu Jintao, China

40Mahmood Ahmadinejad

41Rafael Trujillo
This man was behind the murder and disappearances of about 30,000 to 50,000 people in the Dominican Republic. The worst and most brutal dictator in Latin American history. He was worse than Fidel Castro!

42Richard Nixon

43Prem Tinsulanonda

44Thida Thavornset

45Plodprasop Suraswadi

46President Nicolas Sarkozy
All he does is wait hand and foot for his no good airhead wife who by the way isn't even that pretty!


47David Cameron
I'm not voting Cameron as terrible, but who would put him on here. Why would people vote for someone who has done so much good for their country? The UK is one of the top 5 countries in the world (after USA, China, Russia and France) in terms of economics, power and domination. Without the UK the world would struggle. So don't be stereotyping us Brits as 'chavs' or 'posh', we really are important.
Says he plans to take immediate action on economic recovery, next days goes on holiday with family to mirjoca *face palm*
Too right wing - rich getting richer and poor getting poorer - we'll be as bad as USA next.

48Korn Chatikavanij
He didn't kill anyone (yet) but he did swindle millions of baht to feed his wife and cronies in the democrat party. His excellent English allowed him to cover the eyes of the media during the post-slaughter of nearly 100 people in Bangkok.

49Najib Abdul Razak
He is the 6th and one of the worst Malaysia Prime Minister. He has successfully made Malaysia a joke for the world with his Kangkung incident. Worse still is when the country's economy is so weak, yet he can still afford to live luxuriously and has 7 private jets bought and maintained by the government paid with the a payers money.

His wife is a spendthrift and she has a big compulsive habit of buying everything that is the most expensive and most rare ones on the planet. The only woman on earth (I think) that owns a 24 million diamond ring and a range of super expensive bags. She goes shopping overseas on the country's expense using private jets instead of commercial airlines.
Played cheat in the election by the blackout incident, phantom voters (aka. banglas), double voters and importing extra ballot boxes! He's the complete opposite of his father, the second Prime Minister of Malaysia. Had lost the trust of 53% citizens, only 47% still stupidly trust them (most of them are phantom voters). Killed Mongolian lady using TNT with sufficient evidence to be charged to prison but escaped by corruption, imprisoned someone else. Promise the country that all the taxes will be reduced but increase instead. Then talk about the price reduction of kangkung, thus becoming an international joke!
One of the most corrupt prime minister

54Crown Prince Abdullah

56Sheikh Hasina
Most Dangerous, Most corrupted, Most brute ruler in the history.

57Tony Abbort
A sociopath who told reporters asking for comment about the latest refugee boat tragedy to "F*** off" before scooting off to watch the football.

A known liar who has been caught on video quivering with rage when a reporter bravely asks him to clarify why he described the tragic death of a soldier in terms of "S*** happens! "

A bully, a thug, a misogynist, who picked on the previous Prime Minister, Julia Gillard, and upset her in public when her father died.
The most dishonest and ideologically extreme Prime Minister in Australian history. A man who has done nothing but strip back our civil rights, democracy and public sector, to serve the interests of unscrupulous neo-con capitalist extremists. He has declared war on everyone from the Australian working majority, to women, to unions, to asylum seekers and more.
A psychopath who is in the process of destroying a great country by dismantling and defending anything that serves to better the community. The money he rips from community organisations, education, health, disabilities services is all being given to big business in the form of tax breaks and direct funding. He should be persecuted for breaching the UN agreement on refugees. This man is a disgrace.

Stopped investments in renewable energy research and gave permission to big business to mines everywhere. Turned Australia into a quarry. Change media ownership to give Murdoch the monopoly so he could control restrict information given to everyone. Both problems prevail.
Lied about weapons of mass destruction, hated workers

61Recep Tayyip Erdoğan
All entellectuels, leftists, atheists ( and people who believe in another god ), womans, humanists and graduated people hate him. Because he drive Turkey to Islamic empire ( including Syria and north kurdistan ).
He is among the worst leaders in history. He is a dictator who exploits the religious beliefs of his people to gain and stay in power. He desperately needs psychiatric treatment, though a cure would not be expected.

77Mwai Kibaki

78Ronald Reagan
Reagan's supply side economics and deregulation ultimately lead to the great recession we are still in. Not to mention the fact that he nearly started WWI by "outlawing the evil empire" and joking the bombs would soon be dropping on the USSR. The icing on the cake is the fact that he armed the Taliban who in turn armed Al Qaeda, and even remarked that the Taliban embodied America's ideals of liberty and freedom
This should be ranked much worst. How much propaganda does it take not to realize he's evil.
Trickle down economics, enough said.

79Goodluck Jonathan
He supports corruption in every sector in the country, first when he was asked to declare his asset he refused then continue covering corrupt politicians and fired whistle blowers about the corruption. He's worst thing that happened to Nigeria as a country in recent times.
Nigerian President (please don't say leader). This guy couldn't lead himself out of a brown paper bag. Corrupt, weak, indecisive, confused and with doubtful academic qualifications.Fritters away surpluses on an ill managed infrastructure and power transformation agenda.Completely under the heel of his first lady and lady ministers.
Apart from frightening level of corruption in the country, facts are now coming out that Jonathan and his PDP are ones funding boko haram to castrate the north political as we approach 2015 election. He knows an average northerner will not vote for him, hence, his plan is to ensure elections don't happen in some of the north or the elections happen under heavy military presence to pave the way for rigging.

He betrayed his own father inlaw, NT Ramarao and sworn as Chief Minister. He ruled Andhra Pradesh for 9 years and did nothing to farmers in Andhra where farming is the main source of income in those time. He said that farming is waste and encouraged people to go for another word instead of farming. In his tenure thousands of farmers sucide. And from then till today he was not able to win the election because he not only betrayed his father inlaw but also people of Andhra Pradesh.

100The Rothschild Family
These people are worst than Hitler! They financed Hitler, Stalin, and are responsible for WWI, WWII, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, 9/11, the War On Terror and are the leaders behind the ages old Illuminati conspiracy for world domination and population reduction and control. When you are looking for who are the Most Evil People in the World, look no further than the Rothschilds and the Illuminati... !
