I would have also mentioned communist-hating, American-loving,
neighbour-invading Suharto, the most corrupt leader in the history of
the world (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/business/3567745.stm). There has
been great progress in liberalisation since he was deposed, although
unfortunately this has also coincided with the rise of a radical
Islamic minority.
