Maybe so but mao didn't affect the entir world like hitler and even Stalin for shear numbers but hitler affected a much larger area as well as our country on a much bigger scale then mao, that's why his impact is probably greater, even then stalins.

I'd argue that 50-70 million more Chinese over the past 50ish years would have had a heavier impact on a global scale than Hitler and Stalin.

Napolean was responsible for 5-7 million deaths during his campaigns.

The all time loser is Ghengis Khan. He and his sons are credited with 100-200 million deaths. They supposedly executed over 1 million in a single Iranian city, Nishapur.

They wouldn't have. Guess we can thank him for more than the Autobahn?

I'm sure I'm not alone!

Meh. They're all dead and gone, and as far as I'm concerned, we'll never know the whole truth about any of them. Take that how you will, but the longer they're dead, the bigger their legends (and evil deeds) seem to grow.

Remembering notorious men and women from history reinforces the fact that we can never have enough guns and ammunition.

His example should be a warning to all nations to never entrust the future of your country to a foreigner. America's founding fathers foresaw the problem and included that prohibition in the US constitution.

I have no doubt that a new name will top this list in the future.
If anyone is still around to revise the list.


Beer tender, bring me another please.
