Life as a tyrant


Excerpt from My Life As A Tyrant....

"The operation began. Dozens of officers entered the bazaar, followed by NATO soldiers and their cargo truck. The vendors initially didn’t know what was happening.

Hundreds of vendors picked up their wares and ran. The slow ones were accosted and stripped of their possessions. KPS officers swarmed me, saying, “We can’t do this!

“Ne jeme komunista sot.” We are communists today."
