“When you're left wounded on

Afganistan's plains and

the women come out to cut up what remains,

Just roll to your rifle

and blow out your brains,

And go to your God like a soldier”

“We are not retreating. We are advancing in another direction.”

“It is fatal to enter any war without the will to win it.”

“Old soldiers never die; they just fade away.

“The soldier, above all other people, prays for peace,

for he must suffer and be the deepest wounds and scars of war.”

“May God have mercy upon my enemies, because I won't .”
“The object of war is not to die for your country but to make the other bastard die for his.

“Nobody ever defended anything successfully, there is only attack and attack and attack some more.

“Fixed fortifications are a monument to the stupidity of man."
“It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died.
Rather we should thank God that such men lived.

The Soldier stood and faced God


Which must always come to pass

He hoped his shoes were shining

Just as bright as his brass

"Step forward you Soldier,

How shall I deal with you?


Have you always turned the other cheek?


To My Church have you been true?"


"No, Lord, I guess I ain't


Because those of us who carry guns


Can't always be a saint."

I've had to work on Sundays

And at times my talk was tough,

And sometimes I've been violent,

Because the world is awfully rough.

But, I never took a penny

That wasn't mine to keep.

Though I worked a lot of overtime

When the bills got just too steep,

The Soldier squared his shoulders and said

And I never passed a cry for help

Though at times I shook with fear,

And sometimes, God forgive me,

I've wept unmanly tears.

I know I don't deserve a place

Among the people here.

They never wanted me around


Except to calm their fears.


If you've a place for me here,


Lord, It needn't be so grand,


I never expected or had too much,


But if you don't, I'll understand."

There was silence all around the throne

Where the saints had often trod

As the Soldier waited quietly,

For the judgment of his God.

"Step forward now, you Soldier,

You've borne your burden well.

Walk peacefully on Heaven's streets,

You've done your time in Hell."

Beyonce's Jakarta show destined to upset KL
Saturday, October 13, 2007
A member of Indonesia's parliamentary committee on foreign affairs, Yusron Ihza Mahendra, this week suggested issuing travel warnings against Malaysia "so other nations will know Indonesia is saying its neighbour is a dangerous place to go -- and that will have a negative effect on their tourism".The proposal failed to get up, but it offered an insight into how Indonesian legislators view Australia's terrorism-based travel warnings against their country. Mahendra's suggestion played into another recent diplomatic spat -- the alleged theft by Malaysia of a traditional song from Indonesia's Moluccus islands for use in a tourism campaign.

Bewildered Malaysians protested that they had sung Rasa Sayang (Feelings of Love) for years and that Indonesians had no sense of humour. The Jakarta Post suggested Malaysians suffered from an inferiority complex and had "a habit of claiming things which are not theirs". But it's not just words that sting. Indonesian karate coach Donald Luther Kalapita felt the Malaysian way for himself when, taken in by immigration police while in KL for a tournament recently, he fought back the way only a martial arts expert can. His enraged captors took him to a city police station, beat him up and then let him go, after finally accepting he was in the country legitimately.

Muslinah Nurdin, the wife of Indonesian Education and Culture attache Imran Hanah, was spared the beating this week but had a hard time proving to "volunteer" immigration police who seized her in a shopping mall that she belonged in the Malaysian capital. The illegal migrant issue will probably never go away, since Indonesia is one of the biggest suppliers of domestic workers to the region and relies on remittances for a part of its economy. And the recent rape by at least 12 men of an Indonesian female domestic worker, at the prompting of the same "volunteer" organisation whose members seized Mrs Nurdin, prompted little in the way of "rasa sayang" between the two nations. It is hoped that when Beyonce wiggles her sequined behind next month, KL does not interpret it as an obscene gesture aimed its way. From the Australian online.....
