Defeated despots tend to get short shrift from the people they previously lorded it over. Mussolini and his
wife mistress were shot out of hand by partisans then hung upside down on meat hooks so people could spit on the corpses, Ceausescu was murdered by the Romanian military, while Saddam Hussein was judicially lynched. Those who die peacefully in their sleep don't get it much better - Franco's tomb was bombed in 1999, while Pinochet was buried in secret to prevent people from desecrating his remains. Serbia's former dictator, Slobodan Milosevic, is probably wishing he had done the latter; last week one of his enemies went to his grave and drove a three foot stake through his heart - just to make sure he stays dead. Since he hasn't risen from the grave to lead his undead legions, I think we can say that the staking was successful.
