    Probably a three way tie between Hitler, Stalin and Mao with Kim Jung-Il and Saddam coming in a very close second and third.

    Odd list. Milosevic was a saint compared to many others on the list. Even Hussein isnt comparable to the category of Mao, Stalin, Hitler and Pol Pot.

    You've left off all the tin-pot Junta dictators of South America.

    Worst? In what way? Incompetence or Atrocities?

    I nominate Francois Duvalier or "Papa Doc" for worst.

    How do you figure that Mussolini was as bad as Mao? I took a course on World War II the suummer before last and I had to read a book comparing Hitler, Mussolini and Stalin. Compared to Hitler and Stalin, Mussolini was actually pretty benign.

    Stalin, Mao and Hitler where the three evilest fascists ever (not communists, Stalin and Mao where fascists who said they where communists).
