If Any World Leader Deserves to Be Compared to Adolf Hitler, Who (Besides Bush, Naturally) Should It Be?

A French historian has said that Napoleon Bonaparte had provided the model to Adolf Hitler for the latter's 'Final Solution' by slaughtering more than 100, 000 Caribbean slaves
reports ANI (danke schön to S Stevens) in news too unimportant to be noticed at length by Frenchmen in general, too occupied as they are in always castigating America for her treatment of her Indians and black slaves (among other things), and, specifically, by some of our readers, too preoccupied in denouncing the alleged racism of fellow webmaster U*2 and other like-minded Americans.
Claude Ribbe has [in] The Crime of Napoleon, accused the French emperor of genocide and held him responsible for gassing rebellious blacks, a century before Hitler and Reichsfuhrer Heinrich Himmler put the extermination of the Jews into practice at Auschwitz-Birkenau, Treblinka Dachau, and other concentration camps across occupied Europe.

Napoleon had apparently used extreme methods to put down a ferocious uprising in Haiti at the start of the 19th century. Then known as San Domingo, the colony was considered a jewel of the French Empire, and to save it, French troops launched a campaign killing all blacks aged over 12.

The rebels were gassed in the ships' holds using sulphur dioxide and the killed rebels were replaced with new docile slaves from Africa …
Who is it again who is the one of the heroes of France's current prime minister?
