Who is the worst dictator that is friendly with US?
That is dependent on your own political persuasion.
Some might say it's the Queen of England.
Others might say it's Putin.
Neither are dictators - though both would appear to remain heads-of-state until their deaths.
I tend to say we are too friendly with Fiji.
(The Saudi royals are a monarchy, not a dictatorship - even North Korea has an "elected" head of state).
What's a good wordplay on Caesar the dictator and Caesar Salad?
1. Salad Days are Here Again.
2. Lettuce Have Romaine. (<-like the sound, pun of this fun one)
3. I'll have a salad back.
4. E tu, ready for salad?
5. Don't Use a Knife on this Salad.
6. There's ivy on the top of this salad.
Okay, things seem to be getting worse from this side. <- (that's too long)
Kidding. Meant to sign off now.
Good luck dictating.
Watch your back.
Why do I keep seeing different news outlets spelling the Libyan dictator's name differently?
It's because the stylists used Hooked on Phonics. That's right, the media and the governments around the world use their own standard when describing things. It goes beyond Arabic to English, but does include it. A style book, such as the AP Style Book, is a quick way to keep all the reporters and spies in line with the people they work for. Just as the KGB didn't need to use the CIA's style system, one newspaper doesn't have to use the same system as another newspaper.
Is Gloria Macapagal Arroyo good for her country of a dictator on the rise?
Seems to be a feature of Phillipino politics. Someone once made the point that there are a handful of families that have ruled the Phillipines over the years. More or less an ongoing feud. She may or may not wind up as a dictator. She may get run out of office. That seems to happen as well.
Who does George Soros want as the One World Govt Dictator?
I am sure that this is something that George Soros has never given a thought to. Glenn Beck's mental illness has nothing to do with reality. Your willingness to buy into it shows signs of great gullibility. I find no reference to his being "banned" from any country outside the right wing propaganda sites, so I would assume that he is free to travel anywhere he wants. You may have him confused with Dick Cheney who must be very careful as to his foreign travel since several governments are interested in talking to him about his approval of the use of torture when he was the de facto president during the Bush administration.
What is the difference between an emperor and a dictator?
An Emperor's lineage is much like how Western European royal lines work, passed down through the family. The powers they have are defined by the laws of the nation. Some might have absolute power, while others, like HIM Emperor Akihito of Japan is just a figurehead with little real power.
A dictator is someone who took power of a nation by force, and rules it by that force with totalitarian power. Lineage is not really defined, because most dictators don't usually want to "pass down" anything. Logically it might go to a family member or trusted subordinate, but after dictatorships fall, the country usually goes to hell anyway.
Is the financial meltdown the result of the Dictator Dumbya Big Lie Iraqi Crusade cash hemmorage?
No, it's not the exorbitant amounts going to Iraq.
It was piss poor financials decisions, especially in housing starting with Crater, made worse by CLinton & brought home to roost by Franks, Dodd & a host of other long time democrats seeking to pad their own wallets & their cronies.

Is the promise of heaven worth being constantly fearful of a supernatural dictator?
Perfect... I like the way you think.
You know I'm gonna steal it and pass it off as my own one day, yeah?
Christopher Hitchens compares 'heaven' with a celestial North Korea at 4:02.
How long was Julius Caesar dictator of Rome before he died?
Julius Caesar was dictator of Rome for only about a year. He was declared dictator for life in 45 BC and was assassinated in 44 BC. However he was big man on campus for a few years before that so one could make the argument he was dictator for at least 4 or 5 years.
What advantages does a dictator have over democratic governments?
They can act more quickly. They don't have to wait for a vote. Unless they want to, they don't have to wait for discussions or arguments before making a decision.
They are not subject to public opinion. This can be good if the public is superstitious and uneducated. This can be bad if the dictator doesn't know any more than the public.
How do you get the titles surgical, dictator and perfectionist in Modern Warfare 2 (xbox 360) ?
Its the whole clip, not the whole magazine. Try doing it all stealth-like. Silence your weapon and run around behind the enemy team and put just enough rounds into a person to kill them. Perfectionist is the easiest - do it with the Intervention - only 5 shots.
What is the difference between a dictator and an emperor?
An emperor rules over an empire, a collection of conquered countries, and a
dictator usually rules over a country, a la Fidel Castro- though an emperor can be,
and mostly is, a dictator. Mostly a matter of size.
How is praising an egomanical dictator for eternity NOT Hell?
Rivers answer was hilarious.
I have wondered about this for quite sometime myself. Why ever worship the creature described in the bible? He is a total d-bag.
And why would a god need to create people to worship him, how pathetic.
But christians would never critically analyze god, that is a automatic trip to hell!
How come the Libyan dictator is blaming Al-Qaeda for the rebellion?
It's just like after Trotsky was exiled out of the Soviet Union, then Stalin blamed Trotsky or the West or Hitler (whenever it suited) for things that had gone wrong in Russia.
The only problem is, this doesn't work nowadays when the media are so prominent even in the most regulated countries. He's getting desperate...
What are the similarities between the Pope and a Dictator?
-They hold supreme power over their people
-They can remove anyone who challenges them
-They have a tendency to cover up any wrongdoing on their part
-They hold power for life
-They are usually considered to be a larger-than-life person, despite the fact they are human
-They often use religion to spread their agenda (although the pope's agenda IS religion)
-They often kill opposing factions
that's what I came up with off the top of my head
How does art created for a dictator differ from art created for a freely elected leader?
Art created for a dictator has only one purpose: it is to present the dictator's policies in such a way as to impress or seduce the viewer into accepting them. In a free society, art has many "purposes" (or no purpose at all), self-expression being one of the main ones. Propaganda art is often inferior in artistic values and creativity--look at some of the crap that was produced in Nazi Germany or Stalinist Russia. This is not always the case, as you would see in the revolutionary and Napoleonic paintings of David. But the artistry in these cases is always secondary to the propaganda. Also, you almost never get anything daring and new in propaganda art.
Did the Russian revolution replace a dictator with a dictator?
Lenin became the leader after the Russian revolution. Not Stalin. Stalin took over after Lenin died and consolidated his power. But yes, the Bolshevik Revolution was nothing more than a power grab by another group that wanted power. But that is how it is throughout history.
