It could be that all awful dictators are frustrated artists - Mao with his poetry and Mussolini with his monuments. Stalin was once a journalistic hack, and I can personally testify to how frustrated they are. Pol Pot left a very edgy photo collection behind. And Osama seems quite interested in video.

可能所有可怕的独裁者都是沮丧的艺术家-毛与诗歌,墨索里尼与纪念碑. 斯大林曾经是一个新闻黑客,我可以亲自证明他们有多沮丧. Pol Pot留下了非常前卫的照片集. 而且Osama似乎对视频很感兴趣.
