“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 collapse of PAS’ religious moral order by P Ramasamy

Awang Hadi, Prisoner of RM90 Million, How Mamakthir squeezes Hadi's balls to dump UMNO
Malaysiakini : ADUN SPEAKS | Nobody expected that PAS, which once boasted of providing an alternative political system based on the principles of Islam, would go down the drain under the weight of corruption, cover-ups and lies.
Its leaders have been exposed as corrupt individuals who would condone lying if it serves their narrow political interests. The withdrawal of the defamation suit and settlement against Sarawak Report editor Clare Rewcastle-Brown merely confirmed that PAS had received RM90 million from Umno just before the last general election.
Although its president Abdul Hadi Awang gave a detailed statement in a London court about the confession of the party’s central committee member Nik Abduh Nik Abdul Aziz, yet in Malaysia, he pretended that he had not heard the recording. The out-of-court settlement in the UK with Rewcastle-Brown was another way of admitting that PAS actually had no case against her.
Further, the failure of PAS to expunge the actual statement from the article was proof beyond doubt that the party had accepted money from Umno. Hadi’s meeting with Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad last Friday and the promise that PAS would not support Umno in the Semenyih by-election was an attempt to wiggle out of a tight situation.

PAS and its leadership are in deep trouble. Its leaders have been painted as corrupted and a bunch of liars. The luxurious lifestyle of its leaders has been exposed to the public. In short, the artificial religious moral order that its leaders created have fallen flat. The party is in shambles.
Nobody trusts that Hadi, being such an opportunistic person, would stick to his promise to Mahathir that he would not support Umno in the coming by-election. He is too deceptive and slippery to be trusted. Even after receiving funds from Umno, Hadi would not think twice of betraying Umno. Umno deserves PAS and vice-versa.
A new twist
A few days after Hadi’s meeting with Mahathir, PAS leaders have come out with a new story, saying that they met up with Mahathir to reassure their support in case there is a vote of non-confidence against the prime minister by members of the other Pakatan Harapan component parties.

This is another preposterous lie by PAS leaders to cover up their moral decadence.
There is no such thing as other Harapan component parties trying to destabilise Mahathir. It is merely a figment of the wild imagination of PAS leaders trying to ingratiate themselves with Mahathir.
The recent U-turns by PAS leaders is a fear that the party is losing its political relevance in the country. Lies, corruption and opportunism are undermining the party from within.
If its leaders can condone lies in the name of religion, then there is no stopping the party from condoning other nefarious activities.
Amongst PAS leaders, there is fear of being investigated and the party deregistered for indulging in corruption. They do not have much choice other than to fall at the feet of Mahathir.
Such is the saga of the party that sought to provide a religious political alternative to Umno, but in the end, replicated its adversary by indulging in vices.
