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."

GE15: Umno, be careful what you wish for
Wednesday, October 05, 2022

A Melayu becomes a marionette in the hands of Java Ponorogo

Malaysiakini : ‘Cabinet is collectively responsible for Parliament dissolution, not PM.’

‘No one can influence PM to advise Agong on Parliament dissolution’

Speculation rife that Parliament will be dissolved before Budget

Kim Quek: Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaacob is wrong. What was done by previous PMs on the dissolution of Parliament – where the PM appeared to act unilaterally to dissolve Parliament – is no passport for him to repeat the same act.

The past governments were under the thumb of Umno’s hegemonic rule where the PM’s word is as good as that of the cabinet. But the present government is a rag-tag grouping of opportunistic power cliques where no single political party has the dominant say.

Any move by Ismail Sabri to seek dissolution of Parliament against the expressed wishes of the cabinet would be deemed an attempt to violate Article 40(1) of the Federal Constitution, where it is unequivocally stated that the power to advise the Agong is vested with the cabinet; and when the PM advises the Agong, he is deemed to be “acting under the general authority of the cabinet.”

In case of doubt, it is pertinent to note that such principle of collective leadership is further reinforced in Article 43(1) which states: “The Cabinet shall be collectively responsible to Parliament.”

I am confident that Agong would give due respect to this constitutional provision when he is advised by the PM to dissolve Parliament, especially when the latter is acting against the expressed wishes of the cabinet. 

Kilimanjaro: Yes, for now, the PM has the prerogative to advise the king when to dissolve but this can and will and shall change in view of the dynamics of political coalitions that appear to become the norm.

Unlike the days of Umno/BN, where until 2008 it had the two-thirds majority and the decision of the PM in this matter is a given and it still is, the next coalition should explore revising the amendment of this "prerogative" power.

It doesn't make sense that a PM representing a coalition government would have to listen to a party he comes from instead of reaching a collective consensus of the coalition partners.

It happened with former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad, and it may happen with current PM Ismail Sabri. It has become a necessity in the wake of Umno’s indiscretions in that what has been an accepted norm is being hijacked by one party in a coalition for its own reasons.

It then may become necessary in making it a constitutional requirement for a consensus to be reached among coalition partners before the PM takes it to the king. From thereon, it is the king's court that prevails.

Umno has to be careful what it wishes for. It cannot pretend anymore that it can dominate the way it did in the past, and more so when the sort of baggage it is carrying had diminished its value.

It may have clout within Umno, perceived or otherwise, but not just the dynamics but also the political landscape has changed. It may not wish to move on with the times, but it most likely will be left behind to bask in past glory.

Read it all here, it's free........
