Is this a good thing? Doesn't this just create a vacuum to be filled with Islamic Fascists only concerned with invading Israel? I'm guessing, 10-15 years from now, if Egyptian government is replaced with a Muslim leader, we will see another conflict [Egypt] with Israel. The guy might have been a little corrupt with money, and he might have oppressed political rivals to remain in power, but he worked diligently for peace in the Middle East, wiped out their debt and, for the last ten years, the Egyptian economy has been rising. I think this is kind of dark moment in their history, but what do you think?

The reason is that when heartless says something stupid, he really means it and believes it.

“They refer to me as an uneducated barbarian. Yes, we are barbarians. We want to be barbarians, it is an honored title to us. We shall rejuvenate the world. This world is near its end.”

Bảo Đại was a French puppet, was a capitalist and believed in a free and independent Vietnam. Diệm was corrupt, that you can't argue. But Bảo Đại couldn't, or wouldn't take back the country and it was lost to communist forces. However, Diệm was powerful and we might have lost altogether had we not assassinated him. Chiang Kai-shek and Sun Yat-Sen are considered the greatest leaders China has ever known. But Chiang Kai-shek was not a leader, he was a warlord and general. He and the American forces would beat down Mao Ze Dong, only to have Communism take over five years after WW2 when Stilwell left. Mao was the Political side and unfortunately galvanized the Chinese people. Syngman Rhee was brutal, but a brutal president is what South Korea needed at the time. They needed someone with the grit to pull them through the Korean War. Syngman Rhee was what divided the oppressed and impoverished North from the gleaming, progressive, world leader in electronics of the South. Vietnam is mostly starving and a backwater today because of Communism. Syngman Rhee made the hard choices others refused to so that his people didn't completely share the same fate. He seems to be fairly similar to Mubarak. Time magazine once said Park Chung-hee was one of the top asians in the world. He industrialized South Korea and laid the foundation for what it would become. Park Chung-hee is exactly what you wanted, as he asked the Americans not to interfere with his overthrow of the government. And we did just that. We let them decide what happened next. Because of that, guys like Chun Doo-hwan were able to take power and do a lot of bad things. Again, we just watched, because that was there will. We stood on the border and made sure no Communism leaked in, but never fired a shot. Anything bad they did was on their own hands. Aside from humanity aid, we tend to stay away from politics in Africa. Idi Amin Dada may have had the British popular vote to start, but in the end he was just another Soviet puppet. He had been hollowed out by the Russians and replaced internally with Communism. Francisco Franco, as you may already have guessed by now, was a Communist. Spain was in need of a leader and a Marxist General is what they got. Humberto de Alencar Castelo Branco started out as an answer to long running problems in Brazil and when your that close to missile range you tend to grab anyone who is anti-Communist. So he lied. That can't really be out fault; the guy was supposed to do the right thing and didn't. We didn't have a crystal ball then and we don't know. Vinicio Cerezo is the same thing. He was fighting a guerilla war with the Soviets in Guatemala. But when his glaring faults couldn't be ignored, we dropped him. And that's the thing here, like Idi, the Russians never seem to drop an ally, no matter how bat shit crazy they get. Roberto Suazo Córdova wasn't a dictator, he was just inept.
