The World's 10 Worst Dictators

Parade Magazine does an annual report on the worst dictators. Here is the list from, The World's 10 Worst Dictators by David Wallechinsky:
1) Omar al-Bashir, Sudan

2) Kim Jong-il, North Korea

3) Sayyid Ali KhamEnei, Iran

4) Hu Jintao, China

5) King Abdullah, Saudi Arabia

6) Than Shwe, Burma (Myanmar)

7) Robert Mugabe, Zimbabwe

8) Islam Karimov, Uzbekistan

9) Muammar al-Qaddafi, Libya

10) Bashar al-Assad, Syria

To see #'s 11-20 go here!

Wallechinsky used the U.S. Department of State, Human Rights Watch and several other organizations to compile his list. I find it interesting when you consider some of the liberal leanings of some of these Human Rights' groups and yet they still have Bush's axis of evil guys as #2 and #3. Maybe W knew what he was talking about during that speech after all. Also, note that Syria's dictator was on the list, the one that Rick Warren praised for having a country where Christians and Muslims were able to get along.
