“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."
MACC will investigate bribes based on law, not personal interpretation - Azam
Tuesday, January 24, 2023
Mr. Cakap tak serupa bikin
Malaysiakini : The MACC will investigate any form of bribery using provisions under
the law, and not based on personal interpretations of individuals, said
its chief Azam Baki.
Azam pointed out that the Election Offences Act 1954 (Revised 1969) clearly defined what constitutes vote-buying. "Section 10 (a) of the Act is very clear and whatever layman terms used to defend an argument is a mere personal interpretation.
"Name it ‘sedekah’
(alms) or ‘contribution’, the law deems it a bribe paid to voters –
regardless whether the voters solicit it or not," he was quoted as
saying by The Star.
Azam (above) highlighted that Section 10 (a) defined in
detail acts of bribery before, during and after elections, adding that
it did not matter whether the crime was committed directly or
indirectly, meaning by the candidate himself or by a representative on
He said this in response to debates triggered after
PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang defended the party’s distribution of cash
to voters during GE15, claiming that it was a charitable act and hence,
not prohibited by electoral law.
Marang MP also said existing rules only prohibited contesting
candidates and their representatives from giving cash to voters.
week, Terengganu BN urged the authorities to immediately investigate
the PAS state government over the allegations, with its state chief
Ahmad Said's reported instruction for division and state legislative
assembly youth heads to lodge reports with the MACC.
On Jan 3, the
Terengganu Umno liaison body filed election petitions to annul GE15
results for Kuala Terengganu, Marang and Kemaman parliamentary
harimau_arif : Why are the dead wood like MACC chief and IGP still floating around? These are two key positions needing leadership of the highest integrity to rebuild public and investors’ confidence in the government institutions.
AIZAH : Don't talk, talk. It is clear admission that monies has been dished out to GE15 voters. So tangkap aje lah.
BaiJeBo : Mr Anwar Ibrahim, when are you going to appoint a new MACC chief, a new AG? It has been more than two months since your government helmed the country. Honestly, your government has been slow in this regard. I am disappointed in this respect.
Steven Ong : Now that the election law had been violated as pointed out , MACC must act accordingly
Now that the PM , MACC and police knew about the election laws, what are they going to do about it?
The PM had spoken , but what are the police and MACC going doing ?
So, Hadi had spoken a lie about the election law. Now he is a confirmed a liar , a big liar. What is Harapan incharged of the media going to do?
Do they need prompting to act?
Its time for Harapan if they are truly Harapan, to tell the PAS supporters the fact that Hadi had lied by repeating what he said and repeating the words that he is a liar, A truth repeated will free the captives and create a prosperous nation.
Harapan should used the medias now under their control to spread, teach and shape Malaysians into knowledgable, productice , efficient and responsible citizens.
Repeating facts and truth to save a nation is an honorable thing to do.
