Assalamualaikum. May Allah bless us all.
ActuallyThis post is not about the fictional War Machine, the new character in the movie Iron Man 2.
It's about a real world war machine.

This was my situation on that night:
  • around 10 pm
  • driving back home
  • listening to BBC Singapore
Yes, I was listening to an interview session. A soldier, ex-US soldier to be specific, was interviewed on air regarding his real life war experience in Iraq that was made into a documentary. That guy went to Iraq with his comrades, convinced by their government that the Saddam Hussein regime kept the so-called Weapon of Mass Destruction (WMD) that posed a huge threat. After he was sent back home from the Arabian country, he realised that through his experience in the Iraqi war, he and his country made a huge mistake. Thus, he worked with a documentary producer , by using his own video footage taken when he was in the real battle in Iraq, to make a special documentary. Among his comments was:
  • "Now, I don't believe that what we're doing in Iraq was the right thing."
  • "Among the things that video cant capture is smell. When I was there, I can hardly remember the last time I brushed my teeth or take a bath."
  • "Seeing dead bodies lying on the streets were very common to us. Sometimes we could not even differentiate the smell between a corpse and other things as we're so used to the foul smell of the corpses."
  • ''When you were not having any sleep for 98 hours, being thirsty and hungry, even the tough training sessions didnt help us in critical situations. ''
  • "I want to share my experience with the viewers so that they can see how bad war is."
one incident marked the turning point of this soldier's view
on the
purpose of the war.

He said:
"One day, my friends and I were guarding a road checkpoint in Baghdad. Suddenly, we could see from far away that a car continued to accelerate even though warning signs to slow down the car had been shown. Fearing that the car would harm our safety, we had no other choice. We lit up (shot) the car. When the car stop, we were shocked that they were an innocent little girl and his father, both were dead. I saw and managed to record the girl's brain falling down from her skull as her neck bent and eventually broke. It was very tragic. Then I said to myself, we're here not to kill these people, we're supposed to help them."
Well, that is just of the minor, not major stories from the war veterans. Those soldiers are also human being, just like the people that they kill. Its not shocking to know that many US war veterans, involved in committing suicide when they came back from wars as they usually regretted their crime on other people.

Nevertheless, its critical to understand that
these soldiers are located in the most bottom part of the military pyramid. They dont have any choice - follow the order and be safe, or object the order and they are going to be strictly punished. Therefore, its crystal clear that in any type of situation, the generals and the politicians - the most upper in the military pyramid- are the people who should be held responsible for the wars. This is because they are the ones who have full power and control over their soldiers. I still remember that not long ago, a group of soldiers were opposing and criticising their generals and politicians for sending them to Iraq and Afghanistan. Then, one of the generals replied:
"You soldiers, are WAR MACHINES! You have no right at all to voice out your opinion, you must listen and act according to our order!".

What did he mean about WAR MACHINE?
You should be treated no more than a machine.

A machine that can be controlled and manipulated by the people in power.

A machine that has no rights whatsoever as a human being.

You should have no humanitarian values at all.

You, your sacrifices and your life is meaningless to them.

Your life purpose is to serve those people in power.

You become a SLAVE.
Your are no longer A FREE MAN.

apabila kita kehilangan sesuatu atau seseorang.. kita akan..
  • rasa resah
  • kecewa
  • rindu
  • menyesal
  • redha
  • optimistik
  • tak selera makan
  • sering terkenang2
macam2 la perasaan, dlm list ni pun x cukup... biasalah, ujian la katakan...

Ptg td, lepas keluar berkelana dgn myvi hijauku,
aku balik dgn gundah gulana, mencari2 henfon, tiada. Tp rasa2 mcm ada td.
Haih, mcm chipsmore pula. Try call guna henfon ibuku, mesin pula yang menjawab mesra.

TIDAK! Adakah aku akan... kehilangan... henfonku buat kali ke-3? Tercicirkah? Atau sudah dikebas orang? Siapakah gerangan manusia yang ada hati pada henfonku yg sudah x-up-to-date lg tu? Henfon burok pun ada yang berkenan ke?

Ishhhhh.... Aku cuba sabar dlm penuh pasrah sambil mendengar nasihat ibuku. Menyesal aku tak jaga elok2...

Dgn penuh duka lara, aku pergi mengambil adikku di sekolahnya. Hanya henfon sony ericsson k608i yg hilang bermain difikiranku. Adikku x keluar pula, bertambah sayu aku melayan perasaan sorg2 dlm kete selama lebih setengah jam smbil ditemani lagu2 di radio yang agak rancak (x kena mood betul la)..

Aku redha aje la. Ni mungkin kuasa Allah yg mahu menguji diriku. Setibanya di rumah, aku nekad. Ahhh, pantang hilang sebelum puas mencari!!

Cari punya cari.... Alhamdulillah.. Syukur... Jumpa juga akhirnya.. Dalam poket beg rupanya. Bikin suspen saja. Rupanya ada masalah, sbb tu call mesin yg jawab...

(pantun D.I.Y.)

Ujian Allah datang bila2,

Pasrah dan redha bila terkena,

Jangan pula marah lagi kecewa,

Insya Allah,pasti ada hikmahnya.

henfon yg da old skool
beli masa form 1 or form 2
dan masih lagi berkhidmat dengan cemerlang kepada tuannya
*thank you Allah*

red shirt

Red shirts- not liverpool,nor man utd- its the opposition rebel group in thailand who fights for the so-called true democracy through street demonstrations.
Actually, there are lots of questions that are still unanswered.

  • Who feed these people?
  • Who funded their daily activities?
  • Don't these people have other more profitable work to do?
  • And the most ironic fact is in this story. One day, the armed forces stormed the hotel where the red shirt leaders were staying. Fortunately (or unfortunately for the army), they managed to escape thanks to their supporters assistance-who stayed and sleep on the dirty and dusty streets. Come on red shirts! Look carefully at that incident! If your leaders were really with you, they should be sleeping on the streets just like most of you, not in the hotel. Don't you feel that your dissatisfaction towards the current government is being manipulated by people who have their own personal interest?
Well, to sum up this post, its crystal clear that street demos won't solve any problems. Instead, it will just create new ones. Even if it solve a problem, I am sure that it will only be solved for a short time. Chaos is gong to spread everywhere across the country. The country is going to be damned, by the foolish actions of their own people.

p/s: seems like man u won't win any trophies this season, same goes to other red teams (liverpool and arsenal.) SURELY BLUE IS THE COLOUR FOR THIS SEASON.

For the past several weeks, most of the nation's newspaper headline was about the p .94 by election in hulu selangor. Yesterday, the vacant parliamentary seat went to BN candidate. Well, I'm not going to comment on the election process or who deserves the seat. I want to highlight on the commitment shown by the voters, especially the elders (the oldest voter was 101 years old!). They fully believed that each of their vote plays a big part in deciding the outcome of the election, regardless of which party they were voting for. Yes, it's about responsibility. Ask yourself. Go and question the vision-less youngsters who are supposed to carry out their responsibility as credible voters in determining the future of the country via the election. This huge difference between the elders and so-called 21st century generation clearly reflects the immaturity of the younger generation.

p/s: the choice is yours
