No Atheists
In A Foxhole

Rudyard Kipling

" “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”
General Douglas MacArthur

" “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, there is only attack and attack and attack some more.
“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."

LCS report to be declassified, PM vows transparent probe
Wednesday, August 10, 2022

Dr Raman Letchumanan : I am beginning to like this man. Of course, it is all to save himself. Najib and Zahid tried to squash him, but he has turned turtle on them.

As I explained in this comment, the issue is broader than just this project. The Tuans are caught in a bind, they have to sacrifice some demigods. They cannot cover up anymore. PH fortune is dimming. Never mind get rid of the worst enemy first; Kleptos, PAS and Bersatu. I am sure Loke and Tony have their MOU ready.

We should thank Armed Forces Pension Fund (LTAT) chief executive officer Ahmad Nazim Abdul Rahman for confirming all that was wrong with the LCS project as we suspected, but in fact confirming that there is no possibility that the ships will be delivered without another huge financial injection from the tax payers. Remember Hisamuddiin and the government's assurances that the ships will be delivered as contracted but carefully avoided mentioning it will be done without any additional financing. Nazim is laying the groundwork for additional funding.

Before I go into the details of every blunder in project and financial management committed by LTAT, let me look at the macro picture first. It seems the army, in particular the navy, has a history of failed projects. The OPV, the submarines and now the LCS. Good thing they was no attack on Malaysia so far, except by the Sulus with their sampans.

Looking further afar, the government pension fund KWAP through 1MDB, the armed forces pension fund LTAT through LCS, and the people's pension fund KWSP through PFI etc are being raided by these privileged Tuans, the protectors of race and religion. And then Felda, Tabung Haji are in a similar situation that needed bailouts. So what is the bumiputra agenda all about where the 1% privileged squander all the nation's savings/wealth and leave the 99% impoverished. Now wonder the bumis only own 17% wealth after 50 years of NEP.

Of course this requires an RCI but then again who can chair and populate the RCI? Former KSN Sidek, former AG Apandi, the same people who are behind all these misdeamours. With our nariions savings being depleted, and now requiring bailouts from the consolidated fund, aren't we on the test path of Sri Lanka. What is more horrifying is that these same protectors of race and religion are not acknowledging their blunders, but painting themselves as much saints to rescue the country from imagined enemies. This is worse than the worst sea sickness.

Okay, back to land, let me rebut Nizam's claim.

1. In financial management one does use the funds allocated for one project to pay off bad debts. It is only paid from the profits or surplus. LCS itself is bleeding and then wants its funds to be used for another project. This is what we call good money after bad money. This is cheating the government and cheating LTAT itself.

2. LCS delivered concurrently. This is in contradiction to what the PSC as the contact provisions. Have you read the contract. Delivery on a staggered basis is normally the norm and common sense in project management 3. The bulk of the advance is used to buy machinery get. Doesn't LTAT already have the shipyard and necessary shipbuilding equipment capacity and expertise. Otherwise why take on this project. Yet you want to build all the ships in one go. What nonsence is this.

4. 3000 engineers and 400 companies. Ah this the template used all the time. I presume they are mostly Malays and your patriotism shines through. With this failure, are you putting all these professionals into shame. I am sure they want to wipe out any reference to BNS in their CV. So what about the millions of poor army veterans who pension is affected. Are you not concerned.

5. Finally, I get it that there was never a tinge of corruption, abuse, mismanagement etc during the last ten years. You are the right person to continue helping this project. We wait for the day when 6 LCS roam our waters concurrently. I can write a book on this, but it only makes me more depressed.

In the meantime I need to do something about my savings before it is depleted. Personal security is more important than national security.


Malaysiakini : The cabinet has proposed that the report by a forensic audit on the government procurement of six Littoral Combat Ships (LCS) for the navy be declassified.

In a statement today, Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob said the government guarantees that a transparent investigation will be carried out.

"The government will not protect those responsible (for the scandal)," he said.
