“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."

Ledger-gate – who’s to bell the cat if not MACC?
Tuesday, June 21, 2022

Malaysiakini : ‘For MACC, it’s not a case of clueless, but selective cluelessness.’

'Baffling how MACC was clueless over graft unveiled in UKSB trial'

Lawyer: Why MACC probing names only after submitting as evidence?

BobbyO: Everybody knows to whom MACC is loyal. Please stop acting innocent, lawyer Haniff Khatri Abdulla.

They pick and choose who to investigate and which file won't move an inch. Yes, a complete clean-up needs to be done. At the same time, MACC must be put under the preview of Parliament.

Otherwise, all of us can keep on barking or shouting as loudly as they want, but nothing concrete will be achieved.

CatsDogsRats: For MACC, it is not a case of clueless, but selective cluelessness.

Kwong: Mohamad Shukri Abdull was made MACC head in May 2018 by the Pakatan Harapan government. Tommy Thomas was appointed attorney-general in June 2018 by the Harapan government.

Umno president Ahmad Zahid Hamidi was charged in October 2018.

So, Lim Guan Eng, you should ask Shukri Abdull and Thomas why they didn't investigate and charge then home minister Muhyiddin Yassin and the rest at that time.

And ask former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad if Shukri Abdul and Thomas told him that his then-home minister was allegedly taking money.

OCT: It is well known that MACC does selective investigation and prosecution. MACC will never investigate any sitting minister and its head when there are wrongdoings. It is to protect the government from a crisis that could cause it to collapse.

If MACC does its job well without fear and favour, there won't be cases like 1MDB, littoral ships, and Cowgate, to mention a few.

MACC will only go after the whistleblowers, the opposition and those not friendly to the government. The agency is a tool of the prime minister as it must have clearance from the prime minister before any big fish is to be investigated. History has shown this is true.

Way To Go: I think too much credit is being given to MACC when questions are raised about its conduct and integrity. The share-trading case of its top dog is a case in point.

In fact, if not for the change of government in 2018, Najib's RM2.6 billion would have remained a Saudi donation and Yayasan Akalbudi would have remained a CSR (corporate social responsibility) vehicle and its hundreds of millions would have remained the personal funds of the politician in charge.

Plebeian: Equally baffling is how the usually media-friendly Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin has stayed silent on the matter.

I haven't seen any headlines with the words ‘Khairy’ and ‘graft’. Perhaps there should be. If only to underscore the point that it's not just a few apples, but the whole rotten barrel.

IndigoCat9464: Malaysians know that for decades many in the ruling government are corrupted or have taken the rakyat’s money through loopholes and inflated contracts.

They know many who are supposed to safeguard the rakyat’s money are also in the same boat - I take care of your back and you take care of mine. That's how Malaysia has been working.

The question is who's going to shake up these corrupted politicians, political parties and the MACC?

Kamrul: Integrity? In Malaysia's enforcement agencies? Are you joking?

Has any government agency looked into the assets of all Umno's top politicians and their immediate families? Have anyone checked on all the assets of heads of government agencies and GLCs (government-linked companies)?

Malaysia is heading down the monsoon drain.
