Personally, I think Stoker did a diservice to Vlad Tepes. If it weren't for the brutality Vlad III was willing to inflict upon the Ottomans, history would look very very different. I think we can see now, even in the 21st century, barbaric cruelty was instrumental in holding back the Muslim hordes, since violence seems to be the only thing they understand and respect.
I agree. We need more people like him to help push back against the Muslim horde. Not in terms of cruelty but just using the necessary force to teach the jihadis respect for Western culture.
