I wasn't sure whether I was in the Kosovo Liberation Army or the Serbian army, but a group of my comrades and I were hiding out in an abandoned apartment building in Pristina. A long way below us, in what I supposed must have been a municipal park before the NATO bombing, were a dozen or so people who were of the opposing side -- but, like I said, I don't know whether they would have been Serbs or Kosovars. Our inspired plan was to shoot them from where we were, thus lessening the chances of being shot ourselves. Happily for us, we had excellent telescopic sights.
I leaned on the window frame, took aim and shot one of the soldiers. Unfortunately, my rifle was spotted and, through the sight, I watched as the other soldiers pointed up at our window and started running towards the building. Oh no! I was in really big trouble! Heroically abandoning my comrades, I rushed out of the flat and ran up the stairs, thinking that I would hide in another flat until the heat died down. But wait! One of the enemy soldiers had already reached the floor that I was on! Thinking how brilliant he must be at climbing stairs, I tried to arrange myself and my rifle so that I could shoot him, but he was faster than me and would undoubtedly have killed me stone dead if I hadn't stopped the dream at that point.
Notes for Freudian Analysis
Need I point out that I don't think that hiding out and shooting people is an admirable thing to do? Especially if you haven't been introduced or, indeed, are aware of what side of any particular argument any of you is on.
The day before I had this dream, I had read that a former Macedonian minister had admitted that he had arranged for a group of Pakistani illegal immigrants to be shot and for evidence to be falsified to make it appear that they were al-Qa'ida terrorists. Having realised while reading the article that I really don't know much about anything in former Yugoslavia, I downloaded a massive pdf document on Kosovo but I was slightly saddened to find that I couldn't be bothered to read it.
