Top 5 Brutal Dictators you didn't know. Dictators like Hitler and well knows but these are 5 brutal dictators that are not so well known, but should be!
5. Islam Karimov – Uzbekistan
A lot of cotton is grown in Uzbekistan. Every single year, a million people are randomly abducted from their homes and forced to work in slave labor conditions for zero pay, bringing in the cotton. This enslavement lasts three months. Children as young as six have been worked to death during the harvest period and no-one in power seems to give a damn. Karimov is also famous for boiling his enemies to death. Meanwhile, celebrities like Sting fly 1000's of miles to sing for Karimov's spoiled daughters…
4. Francisco Nguema – Equatorial Guinea
Nguema ruled Equatorial Guinea from 1968 until 1979. His brutality was legendary. Under his rule, slavery was re-introduced, and journalists were hacked to pieces with machetes and fed to sharks. By the time he was assassinated, he had murdered one-third of the population — more even than Stalin managed in his blood-soaked rule.
3. Rafael Trujillo – Dominican Republic
He ruled as a dictator from 1930 until 1961. During his reign he had himself appointed God, his wife Queen of the World, and his 3-year old son a General.

2. José Montt – Guatemala
Montt was only in office for 17 months but during his time in office, 10,000 people were murdered, a further 100,000 were turned into refugees and 600 rural villages were completely annihilated. He ordered his forces to rape, murder, and starve vast swathes of the indigenous population to death. His dream was to kill every single poor person in Guatemala and he almost succeeded…
1. Jorge Rafael Videla – Argentina
In charge from 1976 until 1981, his security forces murdered upwards of 40,000 people in seven years and tortured over 100,000. During his tenure, it became common practice for dissenters to be thrown from planes to drown in the Atlantic Ocean, and starvation and institutional rape were widespread. In addition at least 400 newborns were either taken from the homes of political prisoners, or raised by the military when their mothers were executed immediately after giving birth. This guy was stealing babies!
