touting just two achievements of his presidency - a vicious war on drugs and a surprise alliance with his country's bitter rival, China.

Yet behind the curse-laden bluster and populist demagoguery that has defined Duterte's rule, he presides over one of the world's fastest-growing economies, and has put cabinet colleagues to work on drafting reforms and legislation to tackle the economy's most stubborn structural problems.

Advisers say Duterte's economic successes come from using a strategy he honed as the long-time mayor of Davao City at a national level.

Hitler was an alpha dog, so was Mussolini, Stalin, Spain's General Franco, Indonesia's Suhurto to name but a few. 

 

Just saying.

Most if not all were considered great leaders.  Hitler was probably the most impressive leader. 

Reagan was also a great leader.

Before the age of TV, most leaders in politics, industry and the military tended to be alpha male. Look at Teddy Roosevelt, or OLd Hickory, Andrew Jackson, both tool a bullet in Public and finished their work (One was making a speech the other settling a duel at dusk. Gen Patton, Jack Dempsey, Muhammad Ali. All alpha males, all were constructive.

Hitler is ranked one of the top leaders in History.  His policy and agenda was horrible, but his leadership skils are impressive
