The rest (Hilter, Mao Tse-tung, Stalin, Pol Pot, Khrushchev, Kim Jong-il) were also stupid for the destruction they wrought. I don't care what your IQ is, if you manage to destroy an entire Nation and/or commit genocide while doing so they might be a dumbass.
Actually, I think *you* are still missing the point.
Evil tyrants like Hitler, Marx, etc.; destruction and tyranny *were* their goals. They succeeded remarkably.
They are a lot of things, but not stupid.
Evil, insane, etc. yes, but not stupid.
