I am encouraged at the comments received on any articles that I write concerning corruption in the Armed Forces. This simply means that the people who reads the articles are concern at what is happening to the Armed Forces, and are disgusted at the few still in uniform who have by their own stupidity and greed, shamed and tarnished the good name of the Armed Forces. The talks of corruption in the Armed Forces is not new, but I believe it has been occurring in the past. But it is only in recent times that dissenting voices against the scourge has been heard aloud, both from within and outside the Armed Forces. I suppose, the magnitude of the problem is beyond respite, and is believed to involved some that are high up in the heirachy of command.
I have received emails, letters, phone calls and even met several people who have expressed anger, disdain and disappointment at such blatant act that have brought disgrace and tarnish the noble profession of the Armed Forces. Some have given me names of person(s) involved, and I do not intend to name them here for fear that it might be wrong. But the fact remains that I now have a poor impression of the person(s) concern, although they have yet to be proven to be involved in any wrong doing. I suppose, many would have a similar impression, if the same is told to them.
I am also aware that there are some people, in their silent ways have express concern at what I have been writing in my blogweb. But let me assure them that my intention is not to smear or bad mouth anybody. I am merely trying to create an awareness among those that are corrupt and of what others perceive them to be, in the hope that they will cease immediately to be involve in such dastardly acts. But if what I write hurts, it will only be felt by those who are involved; but not those who are free of such wrong doing. It is to those people who feel hurt, that I ought to cautioned them.
Regardless of ones faith, corruption is indeed an undesirable act done by those without any sense of guilt and morality. And being a member of the Armed Forces, demands integrity, honestly, loyalty and of high moral.Those who are corrupt certainly have no place in the military society, for it is only for those who are noble. And if the corrupt have become wealthy through their misdeeds, please do not think for once that they are leading a happy life. It will be the feeling of guilt as well as the derogatory name that they carry, that will eventually 'kill' them.
I sincerely thank some of my loyal friends who have reminded me to be genial in my writings concerning corruption in the Armed Forces, for they fear that it is also damaging to the organisation, more than those involved. I am appreciative of their concern, but I could not bare watch the acts of these few thoughtless people who have brought disgrace to the Armed Forces, of which I was part off a decade ago. Some would say that I am being foolish, but it is better to be foolish than to witness the decadence of the once respectable and honourable institution, because of a few corrupt and thoughtless zealots.
Similarly, I have also being reminded by some who have ask me to continue writing until some are being dragged to prison. This can only happen if those who have access to their wrong doings makes a bold attempt to come forward to expose all that they know. And this can only come from within.
Finally, to those who love dearly the Armed Forces, fear not the truth, for truth is the only way to save the good name of the Armed Forces. One ought to remember that any misdeed that one does will invariably affect the position of the supreme commander of the Armed Forces, His Royal Highness the King to which all members of the Armed Forces have pledge to serve with unquestioned loyalty. To me, any act that brings shame to the Armed Forces is a betrayal of trust to the pledges that one has declared to His Royal Highness, and corruption is indeed a betrayal of trust.
