I like France as much as the next guy. More, even, since I lived there and have been back to visit several times. A recent survey on LDS attitudes about war asked for names of less-than-ideal leaders, and this is the list that appeared (or at least, that the writers chose to list in their discussion of results.)
Adolf Hitler, Josef Stalin, Mao Zedong, Saddam Hussein, Fidel Castro, and Jacques Chirac.
Really, Chirac wasn’t THAT bad 😉
