Suharto 1921-2008

President - some would say Dictator - of Indonesia for more than three decades, Suharto led the country through a time of rapid change in which Indonesia emerged at the dominant power in the Asia-Pacific region.

his rule, though, was riddled with corruption and human rights abuses, leading to the deaths of thousands.

As with any such leader with the blood of so many on his hands, the best that can be said is that he made the trains run on time.

And we sold him shitloads of guns.

No score in this game, as he was on the 'Death's Door' exclusion list.
