“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."

Pre-dawn blasts at border post
Thursday, January 11, 2007
The encampment is one of the two co-ordinated border positions created by the Malaysian and Thai security services to carry out joint patrols.

It is located about 50 metres from the Thai army border post. The platoon was sent in on Jan 6 and was supposed to stay there for three months.

Mohammad Ismail said the army was investigating the incident and that the situation along the border was under control.

"Initial investigations showed that the explosions could be from hand grenades. But we are unsure whether it was an attack on our post," he told a Press conference before visiting the injured at the army hospital at Lapangan Terbang Camp in Sungai Petani.

He denied foreign news reports quoting the Thai army that the Malaysian soldiers were conducting an exercise at that time.

"To date, we have not received any information from the Thai army regarding the incident.

"If the situation warrants it, we will discuss with our counterparts. But right now, we don’t see a need to do so as the situation is normal," he said.

Bernama reported Thai army spokesman General Akara Thitrot as saying that the four sustained minor injuries and were treated at Kanto Hospital in Yala.

"They are still investigating the incident, but initial reports showed that it was an accident," he said.

However, Mohammad Ismail said Thai troops helped take the injured soldiers to a local village clinic in Ban Bin Samoe before they were airlifted to the hospital in Kedah.

Sources said that around 3am, soldiers at the post detected the presence of a group of men surrounding it.

After two hours of tense waiting, two explosions went off, resulting in the injuries to the four. The unknown group was said to have retreated after the soldiers opened fire.

Mohammad Ismail, however, declined to comment on the allegation that the soldiers were attacked.

"Please don’t speculate. We are still investigating," he said.

Meanwhile, Mat Nazir’s wife Nor Hashimah Hashim, 29, from Taman Mahsuri Kulim, said when she visited him, he was conscious and stable.

"I don’t regret that this happened because I knew the risks that he would have to go through as a soldier. I’m just glad that he is alive," she said.

The couple has two daughters aged five and six. Nor Hashimah is a nurse. NST
