“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."

The ‘Allah’ and Altantuya debacle serves as Malaysia’s biggest disgrace
Thursday, October 17, 2013
By J. D. Lovrenciear :

Both the ‘Allah’ and Altantuya cases went through our Palace of Justice. In its finale, the verdicts have only brought us Malaysians greater disrepute, disgrace and condemnation from across the world.

Let truth be told.

Lest we forget, there was a foreign national killed, murdered and blasted way into bits and pieces in our own backyard and yet we cannot pin the killers or the plotters. Till today, despite all these years of courtroom drama, we have no one held accountable and punished for the brutal slaying of poor Altantuya. On the contrary, our courts have freed even those who were initially on death row.

Meanwhile, the sons, parents, family, friends and citizens in Mongolia are still waiting, praying and hoping for justice.

And now with the Court of Appeal’s verdict that bans Catholics from using the word ‘Allah’ in their publication The Herald, it slams a another sledgehammer on the reputation, dignity, honor and pride of this nation.

Not only are Christians crying foul, but thinkers, scholars and leaders from both Muslim and non-Muslim worlds are condemning this verdict that came from our Palace of Justice.

The US Secretary of State may have appraised Malaysia as ‘moderate’ State, drawing his inspiration from our iconic Twin Towers. But in doing so, he also brings disrepute to Americans for their inability to see through the mortar and steel and economic gains the truth on the ground.

Indeed here is a nation which has the ‘Allah’ and Altantuya debacle hanging like a tightening noose on Malaysia’s global rating of justice and stature as a wisely governed state. That noose is also tightening around on a multiplicity of issues affecting our politico-religious and politico-justice and socio-politico economics of Malaysia.

Various individuals from religious to legal to civil society and religious circles here have given their sound and prudent viewpoints as well as raise serious objections to way the UMNO-led government has been dealing with the ‘Allah’ and Altantuya debacles. But to no avail. We are instead sliding further down the slope of derogatory leadership.

Why are we all allowing this country to drift into a nation without dignity? 

We cannot find the murderers of a sole and helpless foreign woman who was enlisted for national security matters by people at the pinnacle of power and governance.

And now, we stand alone in both the Muslim and Non-Muslim worlds with this ban on the use of the word ‘Allah’ by Catholics.

Of course the finger not only directly points at the sate of jurisprudence in Malaysia but further points at the people who form the government namely, the administration headed by Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak.

To make matters more insulting, the Prime Minister still chooses to maintain his indifferent silence even though the reputation and dignity of a nation is on the stakes of public opinion all across the globe.

Wonder what our supreme critic and former leader Tun Dr. Mahathir has got say about these two ‘A’s that is a gross insult to the nation? Already, the bandwagons of BN leaders are throwing their weight behind the UMNO wagon to keep pushing the nation’s dignity to the cliff further.

Can Malaysia afford this stance anymore? If no, then we must do something if we sincerely stand by our pledge to God, king and country. This is where the population is crying out for a leader who can lead the people to march onward and forward before we all sink into the pit of a digressive nation.

Can Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim rise to the occasion with defining resolution?
