The Dictator/YMMV

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

  • Anvilicious: Aladeen espouses the virtues of dictatorship to the UN, trying to persuade them of all the things the US could do if it dispensed with democracy. He does so using examples of things the US already does, like the media being controlled by one man and his family, waterboarding prisoners, etc.
  • Crossing the Line Twice: and HOW
  • Crowning Moment of Awesome: Aladeen's speech comparing America to a dictatorship.
  • Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped: The aforementioned Take That speech comparing America to a dictatorship.
  • Unintentionally Sympathetic: Despite Tamir's plans for selling the country's oil resources to the highest bidder, he seems to have a better idea at running a country than Aladeen does. Also, the throne is shown to actually be rightfully his rather than Aladeen's (since Tamir was the next in line).
