One of the key figures of comunism.
Calling the police woo woo woo
Though I'll add that I'm American and also had to look up Huey Long.
Helen: is there some genetic disorder you have that makes it impossible for you to not be a pest? The sentence clearly beings "I can think of"... are you suggesting I thought of all these others and chose not to mention them?
skukka: Gaddafi was not assassinated he was beaten to death by an angry mob.
Thinking of "blessing" assassinations leads inevitably to Reinhard Heydrich, the Nazi. His death was followed by massacres.
by that murderer Lee Harvey Oswald. Oswald was NOT assassinated!
Another older interesting examples might be King Alexander I. of Yugoslavia (the first assassination broadcast live on TV, I believe), Mehmet Talaat Pascha (former Ottoman dictator responsible for Armenian genocide), Reinhard Heydrich (highest ranking Nazi official ever killed, directly responsible for holocaust) or Aleksandar Stamboliyski (Bulgarian prime minister murdered for signing the Treaty of Niš).
Other famous examples around the world include Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi (yeah, kinda problem with surname though) and maybe even Mujibur Rahman, Laurent Désiré Kabila or Juvénal Habyarimana (all of them were leaders of their nations at that time and last one´s death even marked the beginning of Rwandan genocide).
It would be nice to enlarge the quiz and include more interesting cases.
Adding any one of these people to the quiz and you'd be looking at an answer guessed by somewhere between 1 and 0% of quiz takers.
Maybe the people in US would get like 5 % for some of these (dictator Park of South Korea got only 6 %, which surprised me a bit, I would say his significance is comparable to the names suggested), but there are also quiz takers from Europe and elsewhere in the world, who are interested about their own history.
Quizmaster doesn't like to include answers on front-page quizzes that are unknown to 95+% of the people taking the quizzes. I don't necessarily agree with this policy, and I'm not trying to excuse my own ignorance, I'm just saying that the reasons why these people are not on the quiz isn't mysterious. They're just not that well-known. I am certain that if Habyarimana were on here he would be guessed by less than 1% of quiz takers. I've authored quizzes myself with answers less esoteric than that that got guessed less than 1%, even though they never appeared on the front page (where they are taken by more people and thus averages go down).
So anyway if this really is the best list of alternate answers you can come up with, the quiz is fine as is.
