No Atheists
In A Foxhole
ā€œWhen 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 soldierā€

ā€œWe are not retreating. We are advancing in another direction.ā€

ā€œIt is fatal to enter any war without the will to win it.ā€

ā€œOld soldiers never die; they just fade away.

ā€œThe soldier, above all other people, prays for peace,

for he must suffer and be the deepest wounds and scars of war.ā€

ā€œMay God have mercy upon my enemies, because I won't .ā€
ā€œThe object of war is not to die for your country but to make the other bastard die for his.

ā€œNobody ever defended anything successfully, there is only attack and attack and attack some more.

ā€œFixed fortifications are a monument to the stupidity of man."
ā€œIt 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."

Sultanate of Sulu wants Sabah returned to Phl
Saturday, February 23, 2013
 (The Philippine Star) |

MANILA, Philippines - The Sultanate of Sulu wants Malaysia to return Sabah to the control of the Philippines, the spokesman for Sultan of Sulu Jamalul Kiram III said yesterday. Abraham Idjirani issued the statement as he stressed that the almost 200 members of the Royal Army loyal to Kiram III will remain holed up in Lahad Datu in Sabah ā€œfor as long as it would takeā€ to resolve a standoff that has lasted for almost a week now. Raja Muda Agbimuddin Kiram, the Sultanā€™s brother, along with his followers went to Sabah under the orders of the Sultanate of Sulu last week to press their bid to reclaim their ancestral land.

Idjirani said the members of the army will not leave Sabah until the issue on control of the area is resolved. Sabah, formerly known as North Borneo prior to the formation of the Malaysian Federation in 1963, has long been claimed both by the Philippines and Malaysia.  The Philippines is claiming it by way of the heritage of the Sultanate of Sulu, which says that Sabah was only leased to the British North Borneo Co. with Suluā€™s sovereignty never relinquished.

 This dispute stems from the difference in the interpretation used on an agreement signed between the Sultanate of Sulu and a British commercial syndicate in 1878, which stipulated that North Borneo was either ceded or leased (depending on the translation used) to the British syndicate in return for the payment of 5,000 Malayan dollars per year. Idjirani said Kiram and the members of his royal army are not making moves to instigate a confrontation with the Malaysian forces surrounding them. ā€œRaja Muda and his men are just sitting. They remain on alert but there are no untoward incidents,ā€ he said.

Idjirani said some Filipinos living in Sabah have also joined the ranks of the princeā€™s men. Meanwhile, Idjirani pleaded to President Aquino to help resolve the issue peacefully.  He said the Sultanate of Sulu has sent a letter to Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak, informing him of their demand. ā€œBeing a Filipino citizen, he (President Aquino) should help us,ā€ he said. Idjirani also called on all Filipinos, both Muslims and Christians, to support the Sultanate of Sulu in its bid to reclaim control of Sabah for the Philippines. 

Meanwhile, the military has enforced a naval blockade in the Sulu Sea to prevent undocumented Filipinos from entering Sabah amid the continuing standoff between the followers of Kiram and Malaysian security forces, the Department of National Defense (DND) said yesterday. Defense Secretary Voltaire Gazmin said that while the heirs of the Sultanate of Sulu may have basis for reclaiming Sabah as their ancestral land, the process they are pursuing right now is wrong. Earlier, the Philippine Navy announced that it has deployed six naval gunboats in the countryā€™s southern backdoor as tensions mounted in Sabah, with the Malaysian authorities issuing an ultimatum to the group of Raja Muda to leave Lahad Datu by yesterday. ā€œWe have put up a naval blockade in the area so that we could stop our undocumented fellow Filipinos from leaving (for Sabah),ā€ Gazmin said. 

Peaceful resolution

MalacaƱang, for its part, maintained yesterday the Philippinesā€™ claim over Sabah would ā€œbe dealt with at the proper time and under the correct conditionsā€ and that the priority was still the peaceful resolution of the standoff in Lahad Datu town. ā€œFrom the beginning of this incident the administration has been working quietly with the Malaysian government and the Kiram family to peacefully resolve this standoff,ā€ deputy presidential spokesperson Abigail Valte said. Valte said President Aquino had disclosed he formed a team to look at the historical and legal context of the Sabah claim and that it would be pursued ā€œin a way that upholds the national interest and does not jeopardize our relationship with our good neighbor.ā€

On Thursday, Aquino confirmed he had been talking to stakeholders in the continued standoff in Sabah, including the family of Kiram III. ā€œWe have been dealing with this. We have been talking to parties concerned, including the family of the sultan, to ensure a peaceful resolution,ā€ Aquino said. ā€œOf course that doesnā€™t rest entirely in our hands. There has to be cooperation among all entities to achieve, first, a resolution on the current crisis, and later on probably a long term solution to this dispute,ā€ he said. Foreign Affairs Secretary Albert del Rosario also said that the Philippines has requested Malaysia to extend the deadline for the followers of the Kiram family to leave Lahad Datu. ā€“ With Jaime Laude, Aurea Calica, Pia Lee-Brago
