Saparmurat Niyazov dunno them

he's the guy in Turkmenistan that renamed a month after himself and ordered an ice palace constructed in the middle of the desert.

I should also add bandit as he's the president of New America Smiley

Islam Karimov is the dictator of Uzbekistan and a very good friend of Bush. He enjoys executing political prisoners by boiling them alive.

See what I said about Niyazov above.

George W. Bush: Disapprove (but not to the level of hatred)
Jaques Chirac: Strongly Disapprove
Tony Blair: Approve of the general record of his government, but he ignores Parliament too much. That's been changing recently and he's been much more humble in general (thank you Nick Brown and Clive Soley!)
Jose Zapatero: His handling of the Basque thing is idiotic. I had hoped for better. Neutral.
Vladimir Putin: Strongly Disapprove
Hugo Chavez: Strongly Disapprove
Iyad Allawi: Anyone else think he looks a wee bit crooked? He's as good as out of office now though
Ariel Sharon: I'm suprised to be saying this, but Approve
Mahmoud Abbas: See Sharon, Ariel.
Osama bin Laden: Strongly, strongly, strongly, strongly disapprove
Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva: Approve
Islam Karimonv: Strongly, strongly, strongly disapprove
Saparmurat Niyazov: I still have trouble believing that he's real. Answer is the same as Karimov, Islam
Fidel Castro: Strongly, strongly disapprove
Robert Mugabe: See Niyaziv, Saparmurat Turmenbashi
Kim Jong-Il: See Bin Laden, Osama
Hu Jintao: See Mugabe, Robert
bandit73: He's not as bad as is often made out, but he'd make a very bad President. He's be fun as a State Rep though (chances of him getting elected to anything in his county is remote though)

how would the Thai Prime Minister rank?

And for those unfamiliar with Karimov, see my comment above. He's the dictator of a former Soviet Republic who enjoys torturing political dissidents, largely by boiling them alive. And a very close friend and ally of Bush.

Enduring "Freedom", how ironic. Kind of like supporting Saddam in the 80s. Now we have a new Saddam in Central Asia and right wingers think he's the greatest thing since sliced bread.
