23 Worst Dictators

Foreign Policy en español lists the 23 worst tyrants (los 23 peores tiranos). 

In an analysis of the locations of these dictators, Asia, Africa, and Latin America stand out.

Col. Gaddafi
In absence of Fidel Castro from the list (brother Raul is), the most senior member of the club is
Muamar Gaddafi of Libya (41 years) described as a ''egoísta excéntrico'' (eccentric egoist).

The most junior is Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov of Turkmenistan at 4 years, again, casting Raul Castro aside. The ''oscuro dentista'' (obscure dentist) continues the repressive policies of his predecessor.
