One of the common features of dictators is to suppress internal dissent, which they perceive as a threat to themselves, out of fear of external powers. They engage in war and conflict much more frequently than democratic regimes. Mostly, their countries come out of their problematic foreign relations with a loss. I can call it the "giant mirror syndrome" when dictators think they are much stronger than they are, but eventually learn how weak they are. This article briefly examines this syndrome, which has been experienced from the Falkland Islands problem to the last Ukraine crisis, with examples.
