“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 Illegitimacy of Mamakthir's Claim - Mamakthir Lies !!

Easy to promise, hard to implement – Harapan victim of own manifesto

“The manifesto was written not by plucking figures and facts from the sky... We had a laborious eight-month (period) of contestation of ideas on how to come about a manifesto that was pragmatic, practical and could be implemented.” – Rais Hussin, Bersatu strategist.
Via WhatsApp By Ronnie Liu : Top Pakatan leaders took over a year to discuss and finetune the manifesto before the last general election. It took many rounds of discussion before a doable manifesto was crafted.
A lot of thinking has gone into the paper although PH had little or no clue about the extent of the damage done to the country by the former regime. It was not as if DrM said PH thought it would lose in the general election, therefore, all sorts of promises were written into the manifesto without due diligence.
DrM has shot himself on the foot when he made a claim unilaterally that the manifesto was worthless. It is as good as saying that PH has won the election based on lies. PH is led by consensus and not by any single individual. DrM should refrain from speaking on behalf of the PH leaders.
This is simply not right as he is both the prime minister, standing in for Anwar Ibrahim, who is the face of true Reformasi. Anwar has spent 20 years of his life seeking for reforms, but DrM only joined PH at the eleventh hour with the intention of defeating Najib Abdul Razak.
There is no reason for DrM to discredit the coalition that he is leading unless he is trying to tell the people that the manifesto is nothing but a piece of scrap paper. In short, is he telling people that PH has made false promises which cannot be delivered, despite the determination of its top leaders to fulfil their promises to the people?
At the same time, it is not right for DrM to call for Hong Kong SAR leader, Carrie Lam to resign. If the leader of any nation has failed to deliver, the more dignified thing for him or her to do is to resign, and not for the leader of another sovereign nation to interfere into the internal affairs of another nation. DrM has breached the policy of non-interference, something which Malaysia subscribes to. Towards the tail end of his life, he should learn to preserve his legacy as a statesman instead of being criticized for his lack of decorum .
It is not his job to rile up leaders of another sovereign nation.
