Iran - Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
Syria - Bashar al-Assad

Not to stir things up but isn't this in the wrong forum?

There are certain segments of the population that wouldn't want us to forget Fidel Castro.

Muqtada al-Sadr. After he overthrows the Iraqi government and claims the title of "Mahdi".

But, he doesn't have the religious training to actually be qualified to take the title so it will either have to be waived (because he will claim to have liberated Iraq from foreign influence and be seen as a great hero) or he will set someone else up (possibly a cleric with the religious education to qualify).

Either way, once he starts to unite Shiite and Sunni, the West will get scared and he will be the perceived "Big Bad Guy".

I think Joe Biden has a good chance of saying something that will piss off a bunch of people and they will be mad for a week or two and then everybody will forget all about it (again) until he does it again. This could go on for a while.

I think Fidel has maxed-out and plateaued with his "big evil guy" cred.

The truly evil are those who take without caring who it effects. Most scary dictators are too deluded and misguided to be considered evil.

If you mean who would be a good villian for a war movie these days I'd have to say the Saudi elite who fund global terror or the Israeli hardliners.

Ahmadinejad is a given, Chavez is a maybe. Hu since he is threatening all of Southeast Asia.

TBD:
Putin since he is trying to bring back the empire.

Assad if he ever gets influence outside Syria.

Kim Jong Un if he can hold on.

As long as Sunni and Shiah exist, there is nobody on earth who will be able to unite them. Believe me.

As for M al-Sadr, although he will always have influence -- about as great as he has now -- it is extremely unlikely that he will ever gain a substantially larger following than he has now.

My hope is that the US population will grow up and no longer be susceptible to attempts to portray particular individuals as the Great Bad Guys.

There are too many powerful & psychopathic people in the world today for us to afford to demonize any one of them over the others. What we have to do is develop the collective will and collective ability, firstly to weed them out and expel them from positions of power, and secondly to create systems which will not allow these kinds of people to gain power in the first place. Can we do it, collectively? Yes, I'm very optimistic about that.

The administrative problem with Islam for Muslims is that the man in whom all authority was centered left no plan for succession. Muslims do not question the authority of Mohammed, so if I person were able to convince even a few followers that he was the new representative of that authority, a huge realm of possibilities would be open to him - even a union a Shiite and Sunni. They both have prophecies for that leader. They both are waiting for him. The question is: can he convince them?

All it takes to be one of these "evil" people is ambition and a conscience subordinated to that ambition. To see the people of your house, your neighborhood, your city, state, nation, or even the world as the herd over which you aspire to be the alpha. Isn't opposing them the same as challenging them for that role. Otherwise we are just the submissive members of the herd. It's the law of the cosmopolitan jungle.

You have to NAME "names", or I could just 'state' with: 'Corporations'; of which "Monsanto" is ONE as well!
