taliban & left wing fruitcakes critical of prince . good. that means he’s doing well. kudos harry.

Damn hand wringing, bed wetting anti-war “activists”, and that’s only a partial description of those wankers. They are unhappy with England’s Prince Harry.  Who btw, is a pretty cool dude as the young might say.

Anyway, compatible allies, the Taliban and the anti-war fruit cakes.  Both are quite unhappy with some comments the prince made in an interview after his tour of duty in Afghanistan.

OK I do realize that some folks will be totally taken aback that soldiers find it necessary to kill people from time to time to time.  But a Taliban spokesman and some anti-war lunatics do not think it is at all nice to say they do that sort of thing.

Here’s a comment from the Taliban. Those upstanding folks who only want us all to return to the 7th century. Is that asking so much?

Zabihullah Mujahid, a spokesman for the Taliban, told the Daily Telegraph that Harry was a ‘coward’ because his remarks were released only once he had left the country.
He added: ‘This statement is not even worth condemning. It is worse than that.
‘To describe the war in Afghanistan as a game demeans anyone – especially a prince, who is supposed to be made of better things.’

Harry did NOT describe the war as a game, btw.  Typical tali bs.

Lindsey German, of the Stop The War Coalition added that the prince’s remarks were ‘crass’, and accused him of not knowing whether those he killed were in fact members of the Taliban.
‘In recent months many civilians have been killed by air strikes,’ she said. ‘This arrogant and insensitive attitude to killing Afghans, whoever they are, is hardly likely to win hearts and minds - a supposed aim of the war.
‘Prince Harry returns to a life of idleness and luxury, unlike most soldiers who face unemployment, austerity and social problems.’

Dear Lindsey, up yours you dumb assed slag.  Hey, you feel so deeply about those poor folks, go on over there yourself. Yeah, and then preach no war or acid attacks against little girls trying to get themselves educated. Right. See how well you’ll do with that.
Please kill yourself Lindsey. You contemptible bag of ***t.
So, what the prince said that got some bleeding heart hand wringers all upset, and a Taliban spokesman falsely offended, was the following.

In an interview to mark the end of his four-month tour of duty as an Apache attack helicopter pilot, the third in line to the throne confirmed he had been directly responsible for the deaths of one or more insurgents as a co-pilot gunner.

Asked if he had killed from the cockpit of his £40million aircraft, the 28-year-old prince said matter-of-factly: ‘Yeah, so lots of people have. The squadron’s been out here. Everyone’s fired a certain amount.’
He suggests his skill at PlayStation computer games may have made him a better pilot.

His admission that he killed insurgents is likely to be seized on by the Taliban for propaganda purposes. But the prince is unapologetic, saying: ‘Take a life to save a life, that’s what we revolve around. If there’s people trying to do bad stuff to our guys, then we’ll take them out of the game.
‘I’m not here on a free pass...our job out here is to make sure the guys are safe on the ground and if that means shooting someone who is shooting them, then we will do it.’
A senior Army source said: ‘Harry is flying an attack helicopter and that’s one of the jobs the guys do: Attack. It would be unthinkable for a gunner to go on a deployment and not have several engagements with the enemy. Of course he has killed.’


Showing appealing modesty about his obvious skills as a pilot, the Prince said his skills at sports and games helped pave the way for him to become a top pilot.

He said: ‘Exams were always a nightmare, but anything like kicking a ball around or playing PlayStation - or flying - I do generally find a little bit easier than walking, sometimes.

‘It’s a joy for me because I’m one of those people who loves playing PlayStation and Xbox, so with my thumbs I like to think that I’m probably quite useful.’

  1. Give ‘em hell, Harry!  There’s truth to it.  I know my practice with video games benefited something as mundane as my driving.

  5. He is the Nose Gunner in the most dangerous helicopter in the world.  MOD did not send him over there to play patty-cake!

    Of course he has smoked some Tali’s.

  6. Thanks all.  Can you believe it and I think you will, he is still getting some flak in some papers today.  One other thing bothers the hell outta me.  They are mostly not getting the quotes as he said them, and one so called reporter accused him of making a statement with arrogance. I watched that video, he did not appear to be arrogant at all. But printing things and putting a different spin on what happened or what was said is NOT reporting the news. Just pisses me off.

  7. Good Job Harry. You are a true warrior.

    I hope you sent dozens of those ragheads to meet their 72 virgins and they all looked like Nancy Pelosi.
