5. Islam Karimov (President of Uzbekistan)
As the second name suggests and with a sounding similar to when you think of Avtomat Kalashnikov (AK-47), a deadly machine gun, is somewhat of a direct comparison we can give to Islam Karimov. Being in Presidency since the start of the 90’s and it seems to bring about a call of question as to how he has managed to win the Presidential elections of extending his term in the year 2000 and the best part was that he has been unopposed! The only battle here was against himself and maybe some others, who were mysteriously stumped down before his seat has been taken. If those of you who are wondering, about this mystery of why nobody would dare oppose him with hope of winning, is simply because of his somewhat strong arm tactics and unofficial use of the Islamic Militancy to ruthlessly “get rid” off his competition, rather than to legally and competitively fight them in politics. After all, anybody of a Presidential legion will have no trouble commanding respective forces to take action if the President feels threatened. In this case, the threat of his seat being taken by somebody else would have aroused such authorative action against those brave but rather silly competitors who probably would have met a harsher fate than what god intended for them by the controlled power and stump downs of Islam Karimov during these times of his power struggle. Islam Karimov has also been suspected of money laundering charges which meant that his wife would be under house arrest for being a part of a Multi-Million worth of assets that’s reported by BBC to have been part of a crime ring .
4. Bashar al-Assad (President of Syria)
As we descend down from the structured heap of the worst world leaders, each are ranked by who’s badder than the bad. Bashar -Al – Assad has the second name that starts with the other name for a ‘Donkey’ and without saying it, it should strike your minds already. Nobody would be on this list if they weren’t notorious for their mis-leadershipand for being ‘leaders’ who lead in a more tyrannical way rather than in the rightful involvement of followers as well. Despite the ‘noble’ face, AL – Assad is the type of man that would crush protesting attempts against his political endeveours rather than to tolerate it. This alone should tell you everything else about why he ranks at the bottom of the list of the world’s worst leaders. Al-Assad has manipulated a chain of events leading to his official Presidency status from tweaking constitutions to allow certain things that determine who can be head of state, he has also gained the main influence of Military forces within the country etc. As he has climbed up the rankings in the Military fields as well, there is no doubt that his used his command of these people to his utmost advantage and more of it mainly for the crushing of protestors and competitors against him etc. He is notoriously known for banishing certain activists long-term in prisons and more especially notorious for continuing a ‘hardline policy’ that’s derived from his father. Like father like son they say.
3. Omar al-Bashir (Sudanese President)
If you notice the common trend in these leaders names, you will find that there is always an ‘ass’ that is in linkage to their names. This is not only insulting but is a clear and well selected outline in relation to their personalities and the deeds they’ve done to the people of the country they’ve taken ‘oaths and vows’ to represent. Mr. Al-Bashir comes across as an “I’ll Bash” type of guy and by this with a string of things which is in line of how President Al- Assad would conduct things as President. A man that’s been the spotlight of an International Criminal Court with an issued warrant for crimes against humanity is somewhat of a say it all in terms of what we can expect from the Caliber of such a President.
Crimes of Humanity can be spread in the heinous and horrible, inhumane acts of : Rape (several girls), murder regardless of its degree, transfer of humans by force within and out of the country and torture and Al-Bashir is convicted and suspected with all of them, including war crimes too. Presidents or leaders of ANY country or cause supposed to prevent war and not inflict it upon its people.
2. Thaksin Shinawatra (Former Prime Minister of Thailand)
Another name on the list of the worst world leaders gives us a clue of who they are. In the case of Thaksin, ‘Sin’ is the outlining word and key factor at which his defined by and one of the things that he is guilty of. That’s right…Sin to humanity, sin to the people ruled under his tyrannical leadership of cruelty. The head of state however always has the final say, in most cases. Who can we blame for following everything even if it goes against the will of morality, principals, values, beliefs and just plain respect etc.? When under the spell of punishable cruelty driven leaders, everybody would be forced to just go with the flow in this case, regardless of doing the wrong thing. Crimes of humanity as discussed with linkage to Al-Bashir can also be targeted directly to Thaksin Sinawathra as well with the only difference of Thaksin’s way being to a slightly less harsher extent and more blatant .He displayed what we can refer to as the average Billionaires Abuse of power, cruelty to humanity with absolute less consideration of the people involved in such a ruthless manner of his governing duration. In terms of leadership, he can be considered as one of the worst as a True leader leads by example. Thaksin on the other hand has sort of fled, ran away and imposed into self-exile ,sort of like a fugitive at which if he returns to Thailand, would mean the sentence of a 2 year imprisonment. This is comical for a Billionaire as he is an intelligent man to have been making Billions before his elective status as Prime Minister of Thailand, but he chose to run away instead of face it like a Billion Dollar man would.
1. Kim Jong – un (Influential Leader of North Korea)
We have shun a bright spotlight on the worst world leaders thus far and so now for the Finale, let’s give a standing ovation and global level applause to Kim Jong – un for Trumping each and every other worst leader, for Ranking number one on the list of the world’s worst leaders and quite frankly makes the rest seem like kindergarten kids. The people of any country would leave it in the godly acclaimed hands of their elected President or top ranking leaders to provide them the salvation of whatever needs to be done in order for a country to run smoothly which includes the people and the betterment of their lives first before personal endeveours. Kim Jong – un felt nothing to invest a substantial amount of Korean currency in the unnecessary development of Nuclear Weapons while the unlucky citizens in the numbers of thousands starve or work in slavery themed conditions. This right here can be rendered as the first degree of crimes against humanity.
While this may not seem like a common country circumstance of poverty and not a Presidential blame, how does one explain Political camps that are ruled by torturous methods sprung everyday upon those who are held captive, violation of almost every basic human right that the citizens are entitled to not by a constitution but by the grace of God himself yet they’ve been deprived of that too by the cruelty of power driven and selfish ‘leaders’ such as Kim Jong -un. Amongst other crimes of conviction to Kim Jong fall under: Rape, murder, torture, enslavement, kidnapping of innocents for uses that are rather disturbing etc.
