Chavez, Castro, Lula, Francis and maybe Gaddafi are the only halfway decent ones in here.
I live in a middling city in Peru and there are Venezuelan families living in the parks thanks to Chavez and his cronies.
Cuba is one of the most advanced nations in the Americas in regards to education, healthcare, and housing.
Trudeau, meanwhile, and for all the beauty in his smile, has been a catastrophe for First Nations peoples, whose territories he wants to exploit for their oil.
Not many "good" world leaders around at the minute. They seem to range from deluded and dictators, to massively underwhelming and or just plain morons.
I sympathize with his concerns over civil liberties, xenophobia, et cetera, but I also think like many partisan politicians on certain issues he is deluded.
obama and francis were/are good and mandela? terrible????
Thank you QM. cheers!
While some of the personalities below may have ruled their people for some time, they have resorted to absurd and unimaginable stratagems to remain in office.
Brazil is still in the process of unveiling the multiple dirty, tricky plots engendered by the biggest thief of all times - Lula da Silva - who is in jail, thanks to some brave and bold Brazilian judges -, but yet you have included a smiling leader of the poor!
It has been a painful path to free the country from this gangster...Please forget his face, no matter what international organisms might say. They have been deceived by ill-intended members of Lula's party.
I am astonished to see how dictators appear together with democratic rulers. You would do the world a favor to leave out Hugo Chavez, Kim Jong-il, Saddam Hussein, Fidel Castro ... - but maybe it would be better to hear quizz-takers from the countries where these sick minds were born.
It is like saying you find it disgusting to see both Hitler and Hitchcock and Hemmingway in the same list of people whose last names starts with an H. They simply do. It has nothing to do with your opinion of the people, so asking them to be removed from the quiz is very odd.
And coming from the point of view that some of these individuals might be "disgusting" wouldnt you think that hiding away the people that did bad things, like it never happened/excisted is a good thing? If anything that would be more "disgusting"
These people excisted, they were leaders, some were good others werent. Ignoring the truth and hiding away the bad things that happened in the past is never a good thing.
Given the very country is named after the royal family this should be as valid an answer as Abdullah.
Here's a source that uses this spelling:
Boris johnson istead of theresa may (idk how you write her name btw)
