    “Two criminals made the list: Joaquin Guzman Loera and Dawood Ibrahim Kaskar.”

    Only two?

    You need a better education. The most powerful man is Ben Shalom Bernanke who has unlimited power to buy any assets he wants and then stick the US taxpayers with the bill. Obama cannot even get his pathetic Jobs Bill (a payoff to Unions) passed. Money talks. Obama is the new dark puppet of the banksters.

    I wonder how they judge this... Any world leader who can command thousands of troops is completely more powerful than a singer or business man.

    Americans seem to have a habbit of over exaggerating russians too. There armed forces are a complete mess. 2 hours rifle training a year. Thats how much training the majority of them get.
