Prince Harry, seen as the wild one of the Prince Charles and Lady Di’s sons, has apparently killsed insurgents from the Taliban. Like his older brother, Prince Harry serves in the British military. And during a tour in Afghanistan, Prince Harry talked about killing insurgents as he co-piloted an Apache attack helicopter. Known as Captain Wales, Harry did not reveal how many insurgents he killed but did share the experience with media.
In justifying what he did, he explained sometimes one has to ‘take a life to save a life. That’s what we revolve around, I suppose’. His ancestors surely believed in that motto as they slashed across the world, conquering and lording over the fallen. But in modern times, is that attitude so smart and furthermore, does Prince Harry or Prince William publically talking about ‘killing them some insurgents’ add fuel to an already burning fire for terrorists? Does it put their units in more danger?
In detail, Prince Harry states:
“It used to be very much: front seat, you’re firing the whole time.Now, yes we fire when we have to but essentially we’re more of a deterrent than anything else.
“Our job out here is to make sure the guys are safe on the ground and if that means shooting someone who is shooting at them, then we will do it,” Prince Harry said on killing Taliban insurgents.
Some see Harry’s statements about fighting insurgents to be his version of Clinton’s wagging the dog. There are photos circulating of a rather clotheless Prince Harry and a random Vegas woman canoodling. The Royal family was rightfully shamed and now that the pictures are on the internet, all Harry can do is bask in his grandmother’s stern look of disapproval that only the Queen can give one of her naughty subjects.
Harry admits to”letting his family down,” and actually claimed he thought media would respect the ‘What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas rule’, which is nonense. Media cannot even respect his brother’s wife as she lays in the hospital with serious medical issues, so what did he expect to happen in Vegas? Whatever the case may be, hopefully in the future Harry will stick to his mission and keep his mouth shut about his actions. He does not need to make himself an even bigger target for the likes of the Taliban.
