Everyone has to be extremely careful in adding material to 
politically-sensitive articles.  Simply tagging on epithets to people is 
often unhelpful.  We are here to document things, not to come to conclusions 
for readers who can perfectly well do that themselves.  Cf. not calling 
Adolf Hitler a "murderous dictator".
