“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

Photobucket
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."

EC sets extremely tight campaign rules for 12th Sarawak election
Wednesday, November 03, 2021
Dennis Ngau the Dayak Running Dog of the Parti Pesaka Bumiputra Bersatu

The Vibes
: Visits to houses, longhouses, shops, offices, any other premises not allowed.
MIRI – Politicians and their campaign teams will be banned from visiting houses, longhouses, shops, offices, or any other premises during the official campaigning period for the 12th Sarawak election expected soon. This is one of the extremely tight conditions that the Election Commission (EC) has already laid out pertaining to the state polls, which is just around the corner.
Parti Pesaka Bumiputra Bersatu (PBB) chief for Telang Usan Dennis Ngau confirmed this when contacted by The Vibes today. PBB is a component of the ruling Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS). He said the EC has made known the new standard operating procedures (SOPs) during briefings with all the state agencies and those working for elected representatives.
“Yes, this total ban on political visits (during the period starting from nomination day to the end of balloting day) is already drawn up,” he said. He described the restrictions as very drastic but necessary. “It is something new in our state election history,” he said. “It will mean that we politicians will not be able to make physical contact with the voters. “Under the present circumstances, considering the risks posed by Covid-19, I think the EC has no choice but to draw up such measures,” said Ngau, who is the state assemblyman for Telang Usan.
The EC is also looking into expanding the number of booths in polling stations and extending the time for casting votes, he said. He added that every voter will be subjected to temperature screening, mandatory face mask usage, physical distancing, and other measures. Asked if the setting down of the new election SOPs means that the state election will be called very soon, Ngau said the ruling GPS wants it now.
“Yes, we want it now,” he said. Nevertheless, he said the Yang di-Pertuan Agong will have the final say since there is a localised emergency imposed in Sarawak until February next year. If the Agong lifts the emergency now, Chief minister and GPS chairman Datuk Abang Johari Openg will proceed with the official dissolution of the state assembly immediately, Ngau added.
GPS controls 68 of the 82 state constituencies in Sarawak. – The Vibes, November 2, 2021
