“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."

Perlis mufti, here is what I really want By Commander (Rtd) S THAYAPARAN Royal Malaysian Navy
Monday, April 24, 2017
The Commander has forgotten to mention the slaughter of 80 million Hindus by Muslims during the Islamic conquest of India, more..........   Here are the Islamic doctrines, which all Non Muslims should know and what the Muslim do not want you to know - Written by Ex Muslims (the site might not be accessible) 

Malaysiakini: “People have been murdered over cartoons. End of moral analysis."
- Sam Harris

COMMENT | Perlis mufti Mohd Asri Zainul Abidin has “defended his poem saying that no rational Malaysian would find cows sacred and revere them.” You read that right. According to this mufti, Hindus who hold a belief that the cow represents something spiritual are not rational Malaysians. I suppose you could also add vegans and vegetarians while we are at it, who for different reasons hold that the slaughter of animals for consumption is verboten in their belief systems.
Of course, a Muslim who is supportive of someone like Indian preacher Zakir Naik holding forth on what is rational is an extremely unfunny joke. Does any rational person believe what Zakir Naik or anybody who supports him, think about religion as rational?
Asri claimed that his poem was meant for the Modi government, then the question is why did he not simply refer to the Modi government and instead of insulting Hindus in general? For instance, if I were to write a poem denigrating Muslims but I claimed that the poem was aimed at the House of Saud and not at Muslims here, would this be something that Asri would understand? Would he and the rest of the cottage industry of extremists get their knickers in a twist and claim I was hurting the sensitivities of Muslims?
If Asri was really concerned about Muslims in India, why not write an open letter to the prime minister of India and see to it that it is published in every mainstream paper in the country? If this was really about murdered Muslims, then why write a poem? If this was about the anger of a hate preacher like Zakir Naik and the tyrannical government he is escaping from, why not write a letter to the United Nations?
The cow is a sacred animal in the Hindu belief system. This was why the protesters against a Hindu temple were kicking a cow head around as if it was a football. This was about not respecting the religious beliefs of others, which was why reporters spat out the Holy Communion, when they “investigated” a church.
Furthermore, this is not the first time the Perlis mufti has insulted the Hindu community.
To recap, this is what Asri said about the Indian/Hindu community - "Sangat hina kehidupan mereka di dalam negeri mereka. Kasta pariah ini telah dibawa oleh Inggeris ke dalam negara kita ... kehidupan yang mereka nikmati di sini seribu kali ganda lebih baik daripada ... negara merempat, naik bas, tak pakai baju, tak pakai seluar."
This is what I wrote in my piece no country for righteous men - “If Asri as a Malay can't see the inequality of his own multiracial society, how can he as a Muslim reflect on the moderate nature of Islam?”
Asri brazenly claims “the Indian government under Modi, a religious fanatic, has led to many Muslims and Christians to be killed”. If Asri knew anything about the politics in India, he would realise that the Modi government is under constant criticism from Hindu hardliners because he is perceived as failing to live up to his populist stance.
And if Modi is a religious fanatic, then what does this make the prime minister of Malaysia? Modi is aware of the secular nature of his country. He is mindful of the separation between temple and state. He is very well aware of the independence of the judiciary which has curtailed Hindu extremism and maintained a watchful eye on how minorities are treated. There is an extremely robust free press which highlights the corruption of the state but more importantly, the efforts of the Modi administration to slay sacred cows in the name of progress.
Can the same be said of our country?
If Asri is really concerned about “the lives of many Muslims have been sacrificed in horrifying and cruel manners”, he should concentrate his attention on Pakistan. This is where the action is when it comes to Muslims dying in horrible ways.
This is where a tyrannical government tortures and kills Muslims on a daily basis. This is where Muslims are deprived of their land rights, freedom of speech, freedom of worship - except state- sanctioned Islam - where they at the mercy of death squads, where they are tortured, where women are subject to honour killings, where young children are beaten and sold into indentured servitude, where there are bombings, mass executions, no free press, no independent judiciary, and where opposing Muslims tribes go to war with one another.
I mean why go after the Indian government which subsidises the Haj pilgrimage for Indians who are Muslims. Thankfully this is going to change in the near future because of a 2012 Supreme Court ruling. There are far better ways to "uplift" the Muslim community, and enlightened Muslims would prefer money spent on education rather than something like this, which fuels Hindu extremists and divides the country further along religious lines.
Equality before the law
However, unlike some people who write poems, instead of addressing grievances to a particular person, here is what I want since Asri asked. Obviously, I do not speak for anybody else.
What I want is equality before the law. When you as a Malay/Muslim insult my belief system, the consequence is not the same if I as a Hindu insulted your religion.
While Muslims hold massive rallies in support of Islam and do not get harassed or worse by the state security apparatus, when Christians hold a small candlelight vigil they get harassed by the state security apparatus. When a Muslim kidnaps and converts a child, the state security apparatus claims that it cannot do anything. When there are rumours of Christians “converting” adult Muslims, their places of worship are ransacked and the community is demonised in the press and in the mosques.
Non-Muslims are warned not to interfere in Islam or risk violence but yet a hate preacher like Zakir Naik can say whatever he likes about our holy books and nothing happens to him. What would happen if a Hindu or Christian intellectual publicly interpreted the Quran and told Muslims how their book was wrong and that their religion was not supreme but Hinduism or Christianity was supreme?
This is what I want. I want the same rules applied to you as a Muslim as it does to me a Hindu.
If we all cannot have free speech and expression, then I do not see why you alone should have free speech and expression.
