Top Ten Worst World Leaders
He is the great corruptionist and using his richness to get permanent power. Also, he tries hard to rule all of the power in the 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.
Corrupted (and convicted) former Prime Minister who now escapes his punishment and lives in exile in many countries. He is using his power to destroy his homeland through the government of his sister Yingluck Shinawatra. He and his supporters keep repeating the word "democracy" but have never followed its principles. His army the "Red Shirt" is very aggressive and always threaten to harm Thaksin's opponents.
When will history change back to where the truth is known about him? He was a full-fledged SOCIALIST...NOT a conservative by any means...
He praised a scorched earth policy of killing off anyone who was against him politically...or spiritually (especially Jews and Christians)...even with a Nazi Pope installed at the Vatican...
He funded Muslim terrorists (one group was later renamed with the initials of PLO) to continue on with his killing spree...
The only good thing he ever did was drag the United States out of the Great Depression by starting a war that he could not win... FDR wouldn't admit this because his policies dragged us deeper into it...
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 you're nowhere near nice personality that will break mirrors.
Even if you forget about the whole holocaust thing (and lets be honest you won't) He's still a terrible leader, He started a huge war, which he kept escalating until he had no hope of winning (Hitler wanted to prove the Nazis was bigger-er and better-er then Stalin), got all his soldiers killed invading and then retreating from various European countries, then got his civilians killed by not surrendering once the war came Germany, then he killed himself.
By the way, Hitler had several girlfriends in his life, all but one killed themselves, the one who didn't was executed.
Oh and finally this guy DID order the holocaust, the worst genocide in history, where he put to use technology and science and everything that makes mankind great and then used it to exterminate people whom he deemed "different"
He was good for his country, his orders came from the neo-government and he followed them willingly. What he did to innocent people can not be forgotten, but there are many people worse than Hitler. It is easy to believe that Hitler was the worst leader in the world because of the mainstream media exposure around the world. But we keep forgetting that the victors always write down the history of the world, not the losers. Adolf Hitler was responsible for the genocide of the Jewish masses and the leader of a fascist military lead system. He deserves to be in the top ten, but he is definitely not the worst. The worst are still alive, breathing and walking. The worst are brainwashing the commonwealth with their pretty words and transparent government. The worst are the monsters that lurk in the corners, the worst are still here and we can stop them. Hitler is dead and gone, yes he was horrible, but we cannot do anything to change the past. What we can do is stop the new Hitlers' of this ...more
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.
Yingluck Shinawatra has never played a true leader role in her life. She is just an average Thai woman growing up as the youngest child in the Shinawatra family. She had no brain in terms of intelligence but only her well dressed, both in clothes and accessories. She had never been involved in politics and only 43 days prior to the 2011 election, she was on the top of the list to become the first candidate for a prime minister although she was not a leader of the Pheu Thai Party. While in office, she has no clues whatsoever of what's happening, what to say, and what to do. In all diplomatic talks with other leaders of other nations, she would read her notes of what to say and keeps repeating the same certain sentences at a period of time (per an advice of what to say at a circumstance). She makes a million mistakes in live speeches. She did nothing from her own opinion but follows the orders from her fugitive ex-PM brother, Thaksin Shinawatra. She said she would utilize a women's ...more
Hello, my name is Kim. Born to my father Kim, who was born to my grandfather Kim, who was also born to my great grandfather Kim. I live in the most glorious country in the world, North Korea. In this glorious country, we launch glorious nuclear missiles to not-so-glorious countries. One of my favorite activities is watching my glorious nuclear missiles fly gloriously over this glorious land. I also like food. Food is very glorious, especially in this glorious country & it is all for me. Thank you for reading this glorious post by the most glorious leader ever, Kim.
Why is adolf Hitler on the list, sure he was evil, but he was the worst leader, he was actually a great leader who helped the Germans get back on their feet after the depression. Again yes he was evil but he was a great leader people, know the difference
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.
Spends his country's cash on broken nukes and cakes, and couldn't care less about the people in it. All he cares about is "Does my hair look good in this army propaganda? Do we have anymore cake? Is that busted nuke ready yet? "
In terms of administration, he was effective at times. However, his rule was utterly immoral. He was responsible for the deaths of 20 million people, of which many were his own. He sent people to Gulags, he purged the army and was intolerant of opposition. He tried to justify this with communist ideology but he lived his life with affluence and indulgence and he gave no power to the people, which was the fundamental premise of marxism. He was very critical of Hitler when he wanted to be, but was happy enough to deal with Hitler to partition Poland along with non-aggression with Germany. However, he never expected Hitler to keep the promise, and was using the bought time to rebuild his army after having purged it of officers. Therefore, it was only because Hitler was already at war with the Allies that led the liberal democracies to work with Stalin. Perhaps this is why he is never considered first when thinking for the worst leader of history and Hitler usually is.
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 ...more
Hitler was an apprentice of Stalin. When Hitler came to power in Germany, mass murder and death camps were already an everyday reality in Soviet Russia. Until 1941 the Nazis and the Soviets were actually best friends. Hitler was defeated, but help from the western allies allowed Stalin to occupy some of the neighbouring countries and to expand his terror over most of East Europe. The mass murders and deportations continued right until Stalin's death in 1953. But even now he is respected as a hero among the majority of the Russian people. In fact, he is the worst of the worst.
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.
Pol Pot is the worst leader of anything ever. He wanted to become communist, so instead of destroying businesses outright, he massacres 3 million people, or the entire middle class! This, along with the widespread poverty in Cambodia reduced the population to a tiny handful of only 250,000 people! Hitler and Stalin may have been bad leaders, but they didn't kill of and entire class of people or reduce their population to practically nothing! Pol Pot is hands down the worst leader EVER.
Pol Pot's Cambodia. Hosted by Pol Pot. Rated T.V.-MA for Cruelty and Violence.
Pot: Hello, it's me Pol Pot! I'm the biggest idiot in the world and turned my country back to the Stone Age! I kill people for fun! No food for Cambodians. We have to learn from our relatives. They have no food. See people in Africa. They have no food. I'm fair, right?
Reporter: No you're not!
Pot: Send him to the Genocide Area!
Reporter: This is what the genocide area is?!
Narrator: Amongst so many people, including various T.V. characters, TopTenners, YouTubers, Actors, and Actresses arrested for being themselves.
Reporter: Yikes! PositronWildhawk was arrested for being smart and Mildred was arrested for wearing glasses! Many autistic people! Pol Pot, why are you killing everybody!
Pot: Because life is supposed to be perfect. No books, No glasses, No stupid talking, you are ...more
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.
This creepy little douchebag completely messed up his whole country by thinking he could cleanse his it with a genocide. He might as well have become the leader of a country that no would've longer existed if he kept leading the Red Khmer group. A complete example of a failure, imbacel, and southeast asia's adolf hitler
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!
Kim Jong II has been a real threat to the world, like his son, Kim Jong Un, especially to America because they made a new nuclear weapon. I can't believe his family brainwashed everyone so they think they are the best country in the world and America the worst! They were even forced to cry when Kim Jong II died! People in the capital, Pyongyang, clapped in front of the big screen of the city when the nuclear bomb was finished by his son!
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.
When he died and I saw the news I was so mad at him I was happy that day. Tons of people were suffering badly in his country and guess what. Instead of using his cash to help his people he buys a waterslide and a giant pool. Yea I know it's nice to have a pool but why would you let your country suffer?
Wow, new chinese republic seemed to start good with him, but it quickly goes down. The Cultural Revolution is the dumbest thing ever happened. People are killing each other, anything not from China is considered impure, like, piano and healthy diets. The "hong wei bing" (Red Guard in english) goes around China and grief everything. All the culture, manners and peace disappeared in a flash. Probably explains why some chinese has terrible manners nowadays, and people's hatred towards China.
The fact that there are still people that approve the indoctrination of children from their school books to their lifestyle is just unacceptable. The same way Turks believe that Kemal Ataturk is the Father of Turkey and they are happy about that (and I can say that because my country Greece was also believed to distort the truth however that changed within half a decade) the same is for China they present Mao ZeDong as a great leader that would free China... I believe that he must be below Himmler.
Mao made a few mistakes in China, but he still formed China. George Washington killed people who slept during the war, right? But he did it for a good reason, to form a country. Wouldn't you be sad if your founding father died? Mao killed people who didn't pay attention, just like Washington. He also did it for a good reason, because he wanted to form a country. In the end, he formed modern day China. Without him, china could've lost their independence!
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.
To quote Amnesty International,
"Cambodian authorities have tortured thousands of political prisoners in interrogations using electric shock, hot irons and near-suffocation with plastic bags [...] prisoners have been beaten with sharp-edged wooden sticks and iron bars, whipped with chains and rubber hoses and imprisoned in coffin-like cells or underground chambers".
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.
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.
A good example of devil...
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)
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.
This is a thug who knows nothing about leadership except kill and more kill. He made his oil rich country very poor as he juggles from one stupid war to anothet..until George Bush hanged him and sent him to hell.
one of the worst leaders and most notorius criminals in the world
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.
Made money first from court construction projects. The in law of the Shin clan, a Chinese money family.
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.
Why is he ABOVE Stalin? You Americans hate your politicians so much that you believe he is even worse than the Communist regime which America is so against? People like Stalin and Mussolini left black marks on society, Bush didn't do something even close to that magnitude! People should be ashamed of themselves! So full of hate that you are willing to say anything against the leaders of your lifetime, because you are so narrow-minded and completely uneducated. Not that Bush was a good president - he wasn't. But you seriously think he is worse than tyrannical dictators and fascists and everyone of the like? Proof that the average person doesn't know about or care about human history, and is only brainwashed by other idiots.
Before 9/11 President George "Duped-Ya" Bush never lifted a finger against al Qaeda, Bin Laden, any of the hijackers, or any terrorists anywhere. There is no record of his administration taking a single aggressive act against OBL and his terrorist organization.
Before 9/11 He did order American military forces facing al Qaeda to stand down, calling back the submarines that could launch cruise missiles. He proclaimed "I didn't want a cruise missile flying up a camel's butt."
Before 9/11 He ordered discontinuing the Predator drone surveillance and hunting of OBL and al Qaeda, fearing a downed drone would make for bad publicity on CNN.
Adolf Hitler took Germany out of their recession. GW just put us into one. How can you say Hitler was a bad leader. Yes, he might have killed Jews but to him, that is what was right. Maybe he was the first ever to get picked on by a Jewish person. Adolf Hitler did not want to make this list and he should be on the top 10 best leaders. W just went to war to help him and his oil buddies get filthy rich.
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.
He used to be Taksin opposit side, after received many benefits offered from Taksin he changed to be The Shinnawat's slave and try to destroy Thaiand in every ways under Taksin command.
Death squads, hyperinflation, racial discrimination, huge corruption, this guy ticks all the boxes for a terrible leader.
Because he refused being used by whites? And that makes him a worst president. Wow!
Betrayed his people, bankrupted his country and blighted millions of lives
Totally ruined his country and got away with murder. Good riddance.
He invaded Ukraine, causing western nations to put sanctions towards their trade with Russia. This put Russia in a financial crisis from 2014 to 2017 and Russia's gdp per capita hasn't recovered from it.
Are you kidding me? He is the one of the brilliant rulers in modern times, and most important, he is a good leader for its own country. He changed the post-Yeltsin brothel to still rising global superpower. Who else has such achievements in the economy? Even read the wikipedia, rather than swallow nonsense from T.V.. Just remember - world is not black and white.
He's the best leader in the world today. He follows an indepent policy placing his country's interests first, not accepting the dominance of the west. He also follows a geopolitical agenda aimed at protecting his country against possible agression, and all that puts him at odds with the countries that pretend to dominate the world.
Not fond of his crackdown on journalists, but at least reduced Russian national debt, made his country a superpower, improved the lives of much of his populace and is at least an actual leader, hence his high popularity. In short, as someone on Quora said, he brought back to life a dead country.
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 work for Thaksin, for money only not difference from his boss.
He start violence with his speech to burn... Burn and burn
You don't know how bad this man was. Corruption is EVERYWHERE. They took our oil export money, and the one they stole from us, and then split it between them AND his puppet master Fidel Castro. There is not a single aspect he improved in 14 years. He made two coups before people somehow elected him president.
His goon and successor, Nicolás Maduro is as bad as him except he's stupider. He was a bus driver!
Venezuela IS DROWNING BECAUSE OF THIS MAN.
He somehow managed to ruin the country with the biggest oil reserves on the planet during the pinnacle of oil bonanza. Also he immersed Venezuela into a criminal rampage, only in the capital, more than 100 people are murdered on the streets per week.
Venezuela is a great place, but this man ruined it all :'(
Sean Penn likes him! What more can I say!
He is should be number 2 along with his son and grandson North Korea is one of the worst and dangerous countries to live in.. The Kim family make North Korea a living HELL!
Founded the living hell known as North Korea with brainwashing, concentration camps, guilt by association, and Worst of all, Juche which doesn't Work. HE IS A MONSTER!
He got his country into a war and he created a evil ideology that is based on stalinism. Also, he was treated as a god and was an atheist.
He was the most aggressive out of the kim's
He should be on top of this list, he displaced one third of the population and caused almost 200,000 be killed and destroyed and bombarded several cities. To count few of the reasons..
Yeah, why isn't he the first in the worst world leaders list? He's killed a lot of people and displaced many citizens of the country he's ruling. He's the scum of the earth.
He is a horrible dork stupid poopy butt he killed a lot of people including children. He should not be right here. Why the is he right here?
Assad is not only a murder he is a torture person he used bombs. He was compared by a lot to Adolf hitler.
What? Do you think he was bad, don't you know of Ceausescu, At least Tepes did all of this you consider bad for Romania, why do you think Stefan the Great, Moldova's best leader ever, helped him and even rescued Vlad from death, because together they could defeat every country of that time, but they never did that because they wanted to help Romania, Moldova and the Christian world unlike others (Bush, Obama, Kim Jong Un, Hitler, Stalin etc)
And no matter what you think about him Romania will always think he was one of the best leaders of his time. And he is. He may have killed humans and look frightening, but he only killed people who were a threat to his country and the Christian world.
People focus too much on the most recent events. Case in point on this list: Vlad the Impaler. He was way worst than the majority of the other people on this list.
I guess this guy drinks (sucks) blood from people is the reason why we have this fictional character (Dracula) that we recognized today.
Get him higher! He killed people by making them suffer. Do you want a stake going through your head
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
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
Made 700 million Baht for terrorism and setting fires, another Thai money man.
Imagine what would have happened had Fidel Castro not thrown that hissy fit in Cuba after missing a cut with the Washington Senators baseball team as a pitcher... I knew that Cubans were passionate about baseball...but that was taking things WAY too far...
I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if he actually had some money on the growing of ANTIFA in the US...
He purposely makes it look like he is going to attack the U.s, then when the us tries to stop them they accuse them of invasion (which they did to protect their country) and theft. Cuba was an OK country before him, now its an obsolete garbage country, the best to date cars are cars that were made in the 50's in the us, theirs no computers or laptops, people still drive carriages and wagons, and the whole country is nothing but a slum thanks to him.
And now his little brother is ruling this country. Free Cuba, North Korea, or any other countries that are still in these types of governments.
Wow. The Cuban dictator. Think about a lot of inhumane things he did.
Abusive in using authority power to serve Taksin's empire
Ring, ring... "Hello, it's Thaksin calling Tarit cell phone to give him orders and wire money".
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.
Corruption. Dominate his son to police without qualities.
Thai people love this kind of loud mouth police officer making threats against people all the time. That's why he always wins elections in Thonburi. They call him Mr. Big.
I'll tell you a true classified story: My mum's ex-husband told my mum about his dad as an SAS Soldier, he was appointed to go to Uganda in his final days (1979) and he was to protect Idi Amin with his life in his Governmental Office and was to shoot anyone who enters the building without a safe code, he is of course swearing to do his quiet duty under oath of the UK Government, but the fact that the UK Government deny it is horrific.
This guy is WAY worse than Hitler, at least Hitler had a reason (a stupid one) to kill the Jews but this guy he killed 500,000 of his own people and yet he had no reason, he was the military leader of Uganda, he embarrassed the British and said he was the CBE (Conqueror of The British Empire) and executed foreign journalists and made it look like an accident. They killed all their good soliders then DECLARED WAR on a WAY bigger country than itself, Tanzania. Tanzanian Troops took over Uganda and Idi Amin was overthrown then he fled to Saudi Arabia and seeked asylum there. He died on August 6 2003, his country celebrated when they heard he had died.
Power hungry General who killed all who did not agree with him. His best virtual was that he was mentally insane due to syphilis rotting his brain away.
Just brutal... I wouldn't be surprised to hear that he was Obama's real father...
