    Re: Taliban say they hope to kidnap or assassinate Prince Harry

    Didn't he already serve in Afghanistan once? If I recall correctly, some British tabloid leaked that he was being deployed in Afghanistan a few years ago, and the British government quickly pulled him out after it became public knowledge. It seems like a bad idea to send him back.

    I don't think anyone could say where the affiliation is, but the Taliban isn't known for treating prisoners well. They get a high profile target no one knows what kind of message they would try to send, but I have a feeling it would be something that would reignite major operations.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Just the SAS would be a handful for them, but then you know we're going in with SEAL, Ranger, and SF operatives. It would not end well.

    These people may be crazy, but, there is no way they would invite these forces into their lives. They have nothing to gain.

    Do any of our "Royal Families" have children in the Military assigned to dangerous areas?

    That's a real question.

    That ought not be a concern for us. The idea that Prince Harry is—because of his parentage—any more valuable than any of the other soldiers of equivalent rank in the area is based on a principle which we soundly rejected when we founded this country. Perhaps one of the most well-known, but poorly-understood lines in the Declaration of Independence is “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal…”. I guess too many of us don't really understand that this is a rejection of the European tradition of royalty and nobility, which holds that some men are born better than others, simply because of the titles that their parents hold and their position within the whole royal/noble hierarchy.

    Beside that, if the British think that their princes are that valuable, then they ought not be so willing to put them in harm's way.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    My best friend made a good point about Bush never serving in 'Nam. H.W. was at the C.I.A. head at the time, talk about an international incident if his son were in captivity. Not saying that is why G.W. didn't go to theater or not but it made sense to me. In current theaters, not aware of any high profile children serving.

    I hope to get a pony for Christmas.
