Most callous dictators the world has seen

<![CDATA[It takes a lot of compassion, goodwill, love, care, values, and empathy to become a leader of the masses because once you become a leader, you are not supposed to take decisions that suit you, but those that work for the greater good. However, some leaders in the history forgot to think about what people feel and want, and became dictators. There have been many dictators though but some of them managed to cross all limits of humanity and came to be known as the worst, the most evil dictators of all times. Click through to see who such dictators were:

Idi Amin Dada

He did not rule Uganda for a very long time, but a short period of 8 years from 1971 to 1979, but those eight years seemed like ages to people. He was not a good leader but a dictator who could go to any extent to have his way, and used to take extreme unfair advantage of his power and position. He ordered genocides and extrajudicial killings that cost nearly half a million people their lives.

Well, he is someone who does not require much of an introduction. Almost everybody knows that he was a Nazi leader, and was responsible for instigating World War II, the largest and bloodiest war the world has ever known. The holocaust and Nazi policies cost the lives of millions of Jews, gypsies, and other groups.

He is someone who could easily top the list of brutal dictators. He was the leader of the Khmer Rouge and from 1975 to 1979 served as dictator of Cambodia. In a short interval of four years, he managed to bring such a disaster in lives of people that around one million people died of imprisonment, starvation, and murders, and he was responsible for one of the severest genocides in history.

In 1924, Josef became the leader of Soviet Union and claimed to devise government plans that could develop the country in the best possible way. Later it became known that his plans and policies were not lucrative for the public, and approximately 10 million people starved to death as a result of poorly executed and formulated practices.

There are conflicting theories about him. The ones in support of him consider him as someone who did a lot for modernizing China and making it a world power. On the other hand, critics quote him as a cruel dictator who is responsible for approximately 70million deaths through starvation, exploitation, and executions.]]>
