    The word is ruthless, and it's a defining trait of dictators, because you're either ruthless or dead.  

    I think it's funny that people blame dictators for being so bad, when it's just a natural side effect of being a dictator.  

    The real question is this: If Saddam had to be ruthless to keep the different factions in Iraq in line, how much chance is there of a democracy working out?  I give you 9:1 odds that Iraq is going to go up in a huge civil war.
