“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."

PM: Government provides equal chances for all

KEPALA BATAS: All races in the country can rest assured the government will provide equal opportunities in education, the prime minister said.Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said his administration would be fair to all races.He said the government understood that it was only through education that citizens could contribute to the country's well-being."It is also through education that all races will enjoy quality of life. Education will ensure that people make a decent living and get good jobs," he said, adding that the government had always given extra attention to ensure the poor obtained a decent education to help them climb out of poverty.

He noted that rural students were getting better results and attributed this to government efforts to provide better facilities in schools Abdullah, who is Kepala Batas member of parliament, said this when presenting awards to high achievers in the Ujian Pencapaian Sekolah Rendah examination in the constituency. Later, he met a group of 150 members of the Indian community and spoke at length on the need for everyone to maintain peaceful and harmonious relations between the races. Abdullah said the government had not failed any community in the country and would continue to respond to and fulfil the people's wishes.

He, however, admitted that what the government has done might not be enough."Different communities have different needs. It is impossible for the government to fulfil everyone's needs 100 per cent."However, I can assure you that we will continue to do more in the future," he said. Abdullah said co-operation from each and every community was vital for the government to carry out its responsibilities to the people. "We can only do it if our country is peaceful and harmonious. "As such, we need the people -- Malays, Chinese and Indians -- to work hand-in-hand to ensure public safety and improve the situation in the country."

Abdullah said although there were bound to be problems, these could be overcome if everyone remained united. Abdullah said that as the prime minister, his responsibility was to all Malaysians regardless of race and not only to the Malay community. He also said he would continue to act against disruptions of the country's peace and stability. Abdullah said there had never been a clash between the Malays and Indians which was caused by religion. "I will continue to respect all races, I will not treat the Indians as my enemy." New Straits Times Online
