Have you ever wondered who are the most wicked people to straddle along this planet? It is difficult to make an accurate perception of that. We always base our fingering reference on people whose livid devilishness have ubiquitous deadly influences on others around the world. Here, I will give you the list of top 8 most wicked people ever in the world, people whose evil stories will make you think a little saintly of yourself.
1. Adolf Hitler
Adolf Hitler, 20 April 1889 – 30 April 1945, was an Austrian-born German politician who was the dictator of Germany from 1933 to 1945. He rose to power as the leader of the Nazi Party, becoming Chancellor in 1933 and then assuming the title of Führer und Reichskanzler in 1934. During his dictatorship from 1933 to 1945, he initiated World War II in Europe by invading Poland on 1 September 1939. He was closely involved in military operations throughout the war and was central to the perpetration of the Holocaust , the genocide of about 6 million Jews and millions of other victims.
2. Joseph Stalin
Joseph Stalin was one of the most influential dictators of the 20th century.
He obtained power of the communist U.S.S.R. after the death of Vladmir Lenin. He was considered both a monster and revolutionary. He was a monster due to what is referred to the Purges. These were the execution the millions of Soviet people. Stalin considered these people a threat to his political future. He was considered a revolutionary because of his five year plans which industrialized U.S.S.R. Stalin was a major factor on the history of the 20th Century. He the leader of one of the three nations in which defeated the German Forces. He also began the cold war with the western countries which engulfed the world in a atomic weapons standoff for fifty years. The timeline below is a brief description of Stalin's life and career.
3. Mao Zedong
A founding member of the Chinese Communist Party, Mao Zedong broke with Marxist-Leninist thought by building up a “Red Army” of peasants rather than relying on industrial workers. He fought a guerrilla campaign from the countryside following the outbreak of civil war between the Communists and Nationalists in 1927, gaining fame—and leadership over the party—for leading an orderly retreat of roughly 6,000 miles. The two sides briefly cooperated in the late 1930s to resist invading Japanese forces, but they were at each other’s throats again after World War II. Finally, in 1949, the Nationalists withdrew to Taiwan and Mao proclaimed the People’s Republic of China.
Right away, Mao purged hundreds of thousands of counterrevolutionaries, redistributed land to peasants, laid claim to Tibet and committed troops to battle the United States in Korea. He then promulgated the Great Leap Forward, in which villagers were forced into communes in an attempt to increase agricultural and industrial output. A colossal failure, it resulted in a famine that killed up to 45 million people from 1958 to 1962. Another 1.5 million or so died during the Cultural Revolution (1966-1976), in which paramilitaries called Red Guards roamed the country hunting down intellectuals and other perceived enemies of the state. Mao remained leader until his death in September 1976.
4. Vlad the Impaler
Vlad III known as “Vlad the Impaler” or “Vlad Dracula” was a Romanian monarch. He is best known for his reputation as a dictator and his gruesome torture methods and executions.
5. Karl Marx
Karl Marx (1818-1883), was a German political philosopher and revolutionary, the most important of all socialist thinkers and the creator of a system of thought called Marxism.
With political economist Friedrich Engels, he founded scientific socialism. Karl Marx never personally killed. You could sit and luxuriate with him. But Karl Marx is the author of the greatest evils to be set loose on humanity. He sent an inscribed copy Das Kapital to the British scientist, Charles Darwin. Marx saw history and economics the same way that Darwin saw biology: as driven by godless, impersonal forces. His theory gave rise to secular socialist utopian regime that would kill more than 100 million people in the 20th century alone. This is to say nothing of physical, spiritual, intellectual assassination of the entire generation.
6. Adolf Eichmann
Adolf Eichmann, 1906-1962, was responsible for the persecution and murder of millions of Jews in the death camps in Europe during World War II.
On May 13, 1960, Adolf Eichmann was seized by Israeli agents in Argentina and smuggled back to Jerusalem to stand trial for his role in the murder of one-third of Europe's Jewish people during World War II. The Eichmann trial of April through August 1961 gained worldwide attention as the most important trial of Nazi criminality since the Nuremberg trial of 1945-1946. For the first time a Jewish court convened in judgment upon a former persecutor. Eichmann was that SS officer responsible for transporting Jews and other victims to the extermination camps. The trial testimony showed him to be the ultimate conformist in a criminal state.
7. Saddam Hussein
Saddam Hussein was a bloody and brutal dictator who kept his country of Iraq at war almost constantly after assuming power in 1979. At least one million people died due to the machinations of Saddam. After his regime was toppled by the U.S. invasion of 2003, he wound up on a gallows, his life terminated at the end of a hangman's noose.
Saddam invaded neighboring Iran in 1980 and waged war for seven years and 11 months, making it the longest conventional war in the 20th Century. Saddam had hoped to take advantage of what he perceived as the chaos of the Iranian revolution to settle border disputes and suppress his own Shi'ite Muslim population. (Iran is predominantly Shi'ite while Hussein was a Sunni Muslim.) The war ended in a stalemate with approximately 500,000 Iraqis and 400,000 Iranians dead. Both sides, major oil producers, suffered economic losses of half-a-trillion dollars. Saddam used poison gas against Iranian troops, an atrocity even Adolf Hitler didn't engage on the battlefields of World War II.
Beginning in 1986 and continuing through 1989, Saddam launched a deliberate campaign of genocide against the Kurds in northern Iraq. The campaign also targeted areas populated by other minorities, including Assyrians and Jews. In 1988, his forces launched a poison gas attack on the Kurdish town of Halabja that killed as many as 5,000 people and injured as many as 10,000. In all, Saddam's three-year-long genocide against the Kurds and other minorities claimed as many as 182,000 lives.
In 1990, the war-monger Saddam invaded Kuwait with the intention of looting and annexing the oil-rich country. An international coalition was put together by the first President George Bush and freed Kuwait but left Saddam in power. His son President George W. Bush put together a second coalition army dominated by American and British forces that invaded Iraq in March 2003 to depose the dictator.
The invasion was launched on the pretext that he possessed weapons of mass destruction and was in league with al-Qaeda, the terrorist group that had launched the 9/11 attacks on the United States. Both charges were false, but it led to Saddam's capture in December 2003. He was subsequently tried and executed by the Iraqi interim government for the killing of 148 Iraqi Shi'ites in 1982. His death sentence was carried out on December 30, 2006.
8. Osama bin Laden
Osama bin Laden was an Islamic terrorist leader that lead the terrorist organization called the Al-Qaeda.
He is responsible for the 9-11 attack, which injured more than 6,000 and killed about 3,000. He is also responsible for bombing attacks on the United States Embassies in Dares Salaam, Tanzania, and Nairobi, Kenya. 212 people were killed and 4,000 were injured. He sponsored the Luxor massacre of 17 November, which killed almost 70 people. Osama has caused other Al-Qaeda bombings throughout the world.

Thousands of Iraqis have died from Al-Qaeda bombings. In 2007 alone, bombs exploded in Qahtaniya and Jazeera, Iraq, killing 796 and injuring 1,562 people. Osama encouraged other Terrorist groups to attack the United States. He caused the War on Terror, which killed 127,170 to 1.2 million people. Osama was killed on May 2, 2011.
