Let Prince Harry Bloody Fight

LONDON - He's a freckle-faced royal rascal who has led a life of privilege. But Britain's Prince Harry is also an army officer — and he could soon be heading to Iraq to face the realities of combat.

Well, looks like Prince Harry is going off to bloody Iraq (not that Iraq isn’t bloody, but bloody is what the Brits say instead of “fucking” like us Yanks).

Prince Harry got his royal arse through Sandhurst Military Academy last year and is now a second lieutenant in the Blues and Royals regiment of the Household Cavalry (I think that means he’s a Cavalry Scout…they ride the Bradley’s.)

But Royal Officials are apparently having a field day about the “security headache” the presence of a member of the Royal Family would be.

Okay, well if Brad Pitt or Leonardo DiCaprio joined the Army and were going to war, would we make the same fuss? The Royal Family is really nothing more today than a bunch of celebrities and they don’t have that much power in government at all. It's not like it would be SUCH a security risk like they captured the Prime Minister or the President of the United States. "The presence of a member of the Royal Family could increase the risk for his comrades." Well no shit we're actually getting shot at over there, what kind of a war are we fighting if our strategy for the entire campaign is "hopefully we'll get lucky and they won't shoot at us."

The arguments they’re making about Harry are the same arguments they’re making about women and Jews in Iraq. “Oh it will make them more vulnerable to attack.” Well what are you going to do, go hide in a hole? You’re going to get shot at, so maybe if the Coalition Command would give our troops permission to shoot back unlike they’ve been doing (“Winning Their Hearts and Minds”), we might actually be able to fight something that resembles a war!

For bloody sakes let the kid do his job.

My computer messsed up so if this is here twice sorry. I doubt that the Price is going to see anyy real combat. The Royal family nor the British govn't is going to let anything happen to him. They are just going to let him go play cowboy for a bit. So he can feel like he did something.

If he does get killed or badly wounded it would be a political disaster for the war.

He will never see a day of combat and he himself knows it. I don't know why he even bothers. Although I don't understand why he shouldn't have to take a risk just like the rest of his countrymen. Very sad...

It would just be like a celebrity got killed. Would it be a political disaster if Brad Pitt went over and got killed?

No argument here.

I just saw the 300, and was reminded of a time where royalty was required to fight the wars. Kings led their Armies and princes were generals and champions.
