Why throw around the word "Dictator" so loosely?

The Iranian people already dealt with a dictator imposed on them by a certain country. I'm part iranian and I don't like this current regime much but sure as hell don't think its a dictatorship. Especially someone like Ahmadinejad who holds a lot less power than any US president.

As soon as you start using the words "dictator" people start to feel more and more ok with dropping bombs on top of the country. Maybe it won't really help to change anything but I'd just hope that if some memes weren't used so often then they'd lose their influence.
