Top Ten Worst World Leaders


The Top TenXW

1Thaksin 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.

The worst corruption in Thailand

3Abhisit Vejjajiva

Inaccurate. He was a good Prime Minister and wish him to be Prime Minister again

In Thailand there are rare good leader, but he is the best leader among this group.

He became on position of Prime minister of Thailand by an unacceptable non-democratic way though he said that he did. He and his party presented many policies those were copied and modified from his opponent party, Thai Rak Thai, Thai People Power, or even similar to Phue Thai party. In the politic disorder in 2010, he did approved and agree to order the soldier to kill and shot the red-shirt protesters during the night!

He is a good speaker. Well, that is the only thing he did really good though he lately talking with not a such proper speeches. He only speaks for many many things but never ever take any effort to make those words real. His government, just like every time his party became the government, committed a great corruption which is easily visible from citizens' eyes! However, his party and its members never got blame for their ugly act. Worse, his party's members did many unacceptable acts in the parliament, for example to trow the chair, scream during someone else ...more

He was the killer.

4Adolf 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?

This man had 3 million people die mostly because they were Jewish wow just wow - spider857

5George 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.

It was never proven that he lied to America in order to go to war. As far as the weapons of Mass Destruction goes, if you were to do some research and not be an ignorant tool, you would find out that all the parts and tools to construct these weapons were found buried and that there was evidence they were buried in a hurry.

He was not a leader. Ruined the image of America. Heck, that Iraqi dude did the right thing. He deserved that shoe... - AymanKabir

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?

Big liar lied to america

6Barack 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.

Yeah, much more dangerous than Al-Qaeda, he's never killed anyone, or built any bombs, or plotted against the American people, but he's worse.

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.

And Lenin's right hand man, Stalin killed millions of his own people.

Bad president, but likely not deserving of this list

7King Bhumibol Adulyadej

The king can do no wrong!
When you say that he's wrong, 5-year imprisonment is waiting for you (per word).

He is fake man!

Blind man who killed his bro, and do everything fake

Richest King in the world!

If the King can do no wrong, it is akin to looking down upon him because the King is not being treated as a human being. But the King can do wrong.

8Suthep Thaugsuban

A brave heart man who inspired and lead to political change for Thai people.

He is agood man. Thai people love him so much.

Most information here is inaccurate. He has just been voted
Asia Man of the Year by Asia Society.

A big hairy gorilla who made his money by being a local mafia godfather in the south and who later got in bed with the constitutional court judges. A two-faced monkey.

9Joseph 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. - JonteNo

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?

I agree. Stalin should be way higher on this list. Had he lived to see the Cuban Missile Crisis, World War III would have started and we can only wonder how that would have turned out in a world that had already entered the nuclear age.

The difference between Stalin and most of the others on this list is simple: Communism's influence spread during Stalin's time in power, but he also had a military that was strong enough that to change our geopolitical world in a way that you wouldn't want to imagine.

He was less infamous then Hitler but actually killed more innocents (as in non-soldiers)

10Kim 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!? " - aman28

The Contenders

11Hun 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.

Everything in Cambodia is owned by this tyrant! He is cruel, violent, heartless, totally insane etc. He is a real ass leader!

12Pol 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. - Tyrant216

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

Definitely #2 after Hitler in the modern era.

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.

His child is also stupid and really mean.

14Saddam 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 - ronluna

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)

Saddam was a great Muslim leader - Umarfarooq

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.

Uh, Dude... That Wasn't Really Him.

16Mao 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.

Killed more people than Hitler and Stalin COMBINED, most of them on accident from a stupid plan called the "Great Leap Forward". Not to mention the millions dead from the cultural revolution which was basically Mao having school children to kill teachers and they soon started killing random people. This guy is the definition of the word "Idiot".

The definition of a terrible leader!

18Benigno 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.

The most stupid & most corrupt leader Philippines ever had. Only a machine elected him.

19Recep Tayyip Erdo─čan

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.

Actually he is a great leader. He fights poverty and corruption. Like you could do better

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 ).

:( Worse thing ever happened to Turkey.

Excuse me, I can't hear you over the sound of corruption

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.

Talkative but nonsense. Have any knowledge about job. Just speech for violence and money.

He will do everything for money.
