“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."

Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Turkey condemn Sweden for Qur’an-burning that didn’t happen

Sweden Quran Riots

Robert Spencer : "Several Middle Eastern governments and politicians have spoken out against plans by a far-right politician in Sweden to burn a copy of the Quran.  The controversy began with plans by the Swedish-Danish politician Rasmus Paludan to hold a rally yesterday in the Swedish city Norrkoping. Paludan, who leads the far-right and anti-Muslim immigration party Hard Line, reportedly planned to burn a copy of the Quran at the event. Paludan has burned the Islamic holy book in the past. 

Violent riots broke out in several areas of Sweden over the plan. Rioters clashed with police leading to dozens of arrests. Paludan ended up canceling the rally, saying police could not protect him. 

Sweden has a large Muslim community that makes up around 8% of the population. Many came from Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan in 2016 at the height of the refugee crisis. The growth of Sweden’s Muslim community has fueled populist right-wing political parties in the Scandinavian country. 

Many Middle Eastern governments denounced Paludan’s plans to burn the Quran. The Saudi Foreign Ministry condemned the “deliberate abuse of the Holy Quran” in a statement today.

Yesterday, Iraq summoned the top Swedish diplomat in Baghdad to protest the issue, following calls a day earlier by prominent Iraqi Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr to do so. Iran also summoned Sweden’s charge d’affaires in Tehran yesterday, and the governments of Jordan and Qatar denounced the plans the same day. 

The Turkish Foreign Ministry also condemned the burning in a statement Monday. “We condemn, in the strongest way possible, attacks and provocations against the Muslims, to Islam, to the Quran and to places of worship in different parts of the world during the holy month of Ramadan,” the statement said. 

“The recent attacks against the holy book of Islam in Sweden show that no lessons have been taken from the past,” the statement added, accusing European countries of failing to take adequate measures against “provocations toward Muslims” and of turning a blind eye toward hate speech under the guise of freedom of expression….

“In Sweden people are allowed to express their opinions, whether in good or bad taste; it’s part of our democracy. No matter what you think, you should never resort to violence. We don’t and will never accept it,” Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson told reporters April 16….
