    You've provided a great list of despicable characters -- unfortunately, they actually lived at one point and created horrible tragedies on a grand or small scale so I shouldn't call them "characters."

    I chose Adolf because of the massive amount of deaths combined with his sick/twisted view of the world. I think he believed a lot of the venom that came out of his mouth as words. Stalin and the other losers either didn't cause as much devastation or pure evil in the manner of murdering or torturing people.

    Before you flame me, I know that Stalin caused more loss of innocent lives than Hitler. Sadam did as sick or even sicker torture by dumping live people into wood shredders, rape, etc... Those guys come 2nd and 3rd on this list.

    well, where is George bush and other americans not here. Hitler was a good man. Everything was pinned on him to make him look bad. Americans have different puppet presidents while they all commit atrocities around the world. Americans invaded Iraq and destroyed an entire nation. You should have american presidents right from Eisenhower for atrocities here. Germans loved Hitler, Russians loved Stalin and so on. No one likes the americans or their president. If I had nothing else to do, I would have gladly dedicated my life towards the destruction of america and everyone residing in that Godless country.

    Hitler did not kill jews. Eisenhowers order to bomb all the factories in Germany did. Food for the inmates of the so called concentration camps were held in these factories. American doctors did autopsies of hundreds of so called victims of these concentration camps in Germany and they could never find any poisonous gas in any of these peoples body. According to the Russian report after the war, they reported the death of 75,000 odd jews in the camps. I wonder where they came up with the 6 million number. Well, this is not the first time, 6 million jews died anyways. Jews are obsessed wth that number anyways.

    Sadam Hussien was running his country so bloody well and americans went there to flick his Gold, oil and to intimidate the Russians by deploying spy satellites from that angle. Americans are the scums on this planet and needs to be destroyed. I urge everyone who reads this to go on a war with americans and destroy it. americans does not deserve to be a part of this planet we call home. They are destroying this planet. You kill one , you become a murderer. You kill a million, you become a conqueror.

    We, people with culture and a cultural root find american women influencing our world and women with their ideas. america is the modern depiction of biblical Sodom and Gomorrah. If God is not destroying this nation, it is up to us to destroy america. Kill americans and administer the slowest and the most painful death to american people and presidents.

    Hail Hitler and the Third Reich.

    i agree. the art school should have let adolf pursue his art career instead of rejecting him. who knows what would have happened then instead of horrible mass murder we'd have horrible mass paintings. a lot less harmful.

    A three way tie before Josef Mengele, Dr. Eduard Wirths, and Dr. Aribert Heim.

    Between these 3, and their horrific experimentation on inmates we now have extensive medical code of ethics, and the Nuremberg code.

    Although I guess Himmler would be even worse for ordering this....

    Hitler might have seemed like the obvious choice, but I feel like he was a lunatic. Stalin wasn't nuts; he was simply pure evil.

    Wow, you made that a tough one... They are all so despicable. The reason I chose Stalin is this:

    He ruled tyranically over a country and had millions and millions of his own citizens annihilated over a period of many decades. He didn't come out and scream about it like Hitler, he very quietly and methodically went about his business of mass murder under the guise of leadership. He didn't even need an excuse. Jews, Ukraines, Poles, cripples, political opponents, complainers... and because Stalin was a malignant, silent cancer, I believe he was even more dangerous than that spittle-spewing flaming maniac Hitler.

    Stalin was the architect of the Great Terror, wiping out thousands by torture and execution, and starving and overworking tens of millions who were sent to death-labor camps in Soviet gulags. His agricultural "collectivism" programs cost millions more lives and caused great misery. Overall, his death toll is estimated at between 20 and 30 million.

    Stalin murdered many millions more than did Hussein. Osama Bin Laden is a pathetic Jihad warrior wannabee who hides behind others to do his filthy little crimes. He is truly evil, but has not done as much damage as Stalin. Zarqawi is the same as Bin Laden. Mussollini fed his empty facist bullsh*t to his country and m...'

But he didn't come close to Hitler or Hussein in the insane despot department...

    banana split
    Although there's a lovely range to choose from, I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest Osama, simply because I think the actions and chain of events he had so much input into are going to change the world for hundreds of years, with the impact rippling far beyond the physical damage that has been caused so far. Already we live our lives completely differently, have stronger fears and I think this will only continue to grow as the battle between peace and terror escalates. Hopefully it won't turn into an epic 'good vs evil battle' with millions caught in the middle, but I'm afraid there's a real chance it will

    Heinrich Himmler.

    Unlike Hitler and Goering, Himmler was a "True Believer" and was the driving force behind some of the worst atrocities of the War. The man was evil personified.

    I say all of the above with the additions of George W. Bush and Dick Cheney. I have been ashamed of our country for the last eight years. We are Americans, we are supposed to be above torturing people. We aren't supposed to kidnap our own citizens and store them in an army base on foriegn soil so that we can torture them. How could we have let these attrocities be perpertrated by our own government? What was the name of the mission in Iraq? Operation Iraqi freedom right? Why were we so concerned about their freedom while our own government was condoning the abduction and torture of our own citizens? I am even more confused by the fact that they tried to impeach Clinton for a BJ. But they let Bush slide on war crimes? How does that logic work?

    They are all pretty bad, but I chose Hitler because in the long run, it seems like he did more damage to more people's lives. I still know people who are mourning the fact that several of their family members were murdered in the concentration camps. And he did a lot of psychic damage to the German people. His negative energy that he generated will be felt for a long time to come.

    Edit addition: Stalin killed more people than Hitler; the only reason he got to 'skate' a bit was he became our ally in WWII against Hitler. FDR and Churchill knew he was a really bad guy and never trusted him but needed his support in the battle against Hitler. They , Hitler and Stalind, were awful despots.

    The most dispicable, ruthless, back stabbing, two faced, utterly evil, no sense of decency except for his race (and that is debatable among Germans), humorless (if he smiled watch your back); lordy...lordy he was downright dispicable. The others except Stalin don't even come close to him or Stalin.
