I think they are all midgets out of touch and resonance with humanity's potential. If they are powerful, it is only about the destruction they can wreak rather than the inspiration they can bring.

Number 1. Xi

Number 2. Putin

Number 3. Whoever is in charge of Biden

What is this, a Rorschach test? Biden at #1 with a gdp per capita 3.5 times China. Xi is number 2, we must all admit. Let's hope Xi doesn't kill us all. Somewhere in the basement is dog Putin, who is reduced to the scraps thrown him by Xi.

Number 2. Putin

Cool story with no domestic semiconductors, software, or anything other than gas to speak of.

Number 1. Xi

Number 2. Putin

Number 3. Whoever is in charge of Biden

Agreed. At least the Chinese and Russians know who is running things. The Americans are being ruled by some shadowy cabal that nobody can identify. And seem happy with it.

Santa Marin of Finland.

They have a word for “getting drunk at home in your underwear” and the belly flop in diving is a national sport. Powerful enough to apply for a visa.

It’s Sanna! ridiculous autocorrect!

Maybe Putin, because neither Biden nor Xi are even near of being capable to stop him after over a year they had time to do so.

Biden and Xi didn't fail in every single military objective against a country No. 40 in the military expenditure list, though.

Unfortunately he lost the presidency in 2021, but this is your guy:

No change since 1945. Whoever is POTUS.

Xi

But even the CCP don’t know everything CCP has, does or is. Does Xi?

And PLA are not THAT much under its thumb.

Rationale for officials’ words from China is to say something to enable getting next higher job.

Xi however is already there, and actually says less than you’d expect.

Zelensky. he shames everyone into doing anything he wants.

TaiwanisChina.....

Yes, China is a country of peace, but Biden and the US? Where does Afghanistan rank on that list? Or Iraq, Syria? By the way, if you look closely Putin IS meeting almost every objective of the Ukraine mission. It may not be as hoped or as laid down in plan A but they are meeting their prime goals.

Biden.

-7 ( +3 / -10 )

I think words ‘powerful’ and ‘leader’ should be separated...

0 ( +1 / -1 )

Biden and there’s no close 2nd .!.

-5 ( +3 / -8 )

Number 3. Whoever is in charge of Biden

That would be John Bolton, the Kagans, Nuland, Jake Sullivan, Blinken and the rest of the Neo-con Doctor Strangeloves.

Certainly not biden. He's just a senile moron. The most powerful person is of course President Xia.

-2 ( +6 / -8 )

Fumio Kishida....ups...machigaita :)

Putin no doubt.rest are 2nd league.

-6 ( +1 / -7 )

Joe Biden, but it hasn’t appeared on his teleprompter yet.

4 ( +6 / -2 )

Zelensky! Great answer @Blacklabel. Let's see when YOUR country pulls the plug on him. Hint : Years away.

-2 ( +1 / -3 )

Exactly. China has one entity the CPC. The U.S. has the CIA, the FRB, Wall Street, Defense industry, Pharmaceutical Industry, Oil and their puppets running Congress. Too many strings pulling Biden.

Somehow their people still think they are choosing their leaders. It’s so sad to see them in long lines trying to vote every four years thinking they can change things.

Xi 2. Putin 3. Trump

Good point. It’s the hardliners in the PLA that won’t settle with India and want to use force to finish their Civil War with the ROC. Xi is doing an incredible job of holding things together.

The Dalai Lama. The wisest man alive!

Number 1 is USA any president that takes office. World Police can't beat that! World Strongest Military Forces.

Putin doesn't even have an army now. Navy is half stuck in the Black Sea. Totally dependent on China. Lol at the people saying Putin.

By the way, if you look closely Putin IS meeting almost every objective of the Ukraine mission. It may not be as hoped or as laid down in plan A but they are meeting their prime goals.

The prime goal being ONLY to get a land bridge to Crimea? We'll see how long that lasts...

I would say Uncle Xi. China is in the pocket of nearly every country in the world and unlike Russia, the country can cause a lot of damage just by being economically unfair.

Narendra Modi & Putin

imagine if only these two leaders would rule the world, there would be so much peace and happiness

-4 ( +0 / -4 )

Whose Xi????????

He couldn’t even control the covid in China,(zero corona ) so how come all of you think he is the powerful leader

-3 ( +1 / -4 )

Narendra Modi & Putin 

imagine if only these two leaders would rule the world, there would be so much peace and happiness

Not going to get into Modi, but the fact you think a war criminal would bring the world peace and happiness says about all people need to know about you.
