      "Corrupt" is such an empty word. I've used it five times in this diary.

      But the word just fails to convey how deep the racket is. And how powerfully the corruption leads to the misery.

      There is a war of words. And corruption, in Afghanistan, partly means speaking our language.

      "The ANP works for the MoI, same as the ALP, so whatever the MoI law is, they will follow it,” said Khan.
