Foreign Policy has a string of nice pictures showing some of our preferred authoritarian leaders in different outfits. When the magazine stated that “shoes are height enhancers for the diminutive [leader]”, I first thought it was referring to President Sarkozy, but I was wrong, they were talking of the Great Leader Kim Jong-Il.
Please note that “the chest full of medals [remains] the ultimate dictator bling”, and that “the walking cane is this season’s hottest accessory”.
Anyway, enjoy these pictures even if you are in the office. Given the traditional seriousness of Foreign Policy magazine, you can still pretend you were reading international analysis.
