    The Brits won't escalate things because Harry get's nabbed, or offed.

    On what do you base this assertion? NATO has already recognized and responded to this threat.

    Britain has already thought of that and put him in an armoured helicopter gunship, one of which (without tempting fate) Britain has never lost.

    Remind me to never invite the Taliban to Las Vegas. When does standing naked next to a hot naked girl merit a death sentence?

    Agreed. It's incredibly stupid for the British government to allow this IMO. This seems like it has a lot of downside and very little upside. If they just want to restore Prince Harry's image following his tabloid embarrassments, they should just send him in some kind of supportive role instead of on the front lines.

    We had Tilman a NFL Football Player, a TOP NFL player who went off to Serve His Country. Moreover he did not just join the Regular Army. He made sure he was going where the Fighting is. So he joined my bruthas......those Who, Lead The Way! He died on the Front Lines! Sua Sponte. Huah!

    T.Roosevelt Jr.....Served on the Front and was the son of Former President.

    Moreover we have top Brass that have sons in the Military and on the front lines. We also have several politicans on both sides of the Aisle that have sons and or daughters on the Front lines.

    For the so Called Noble.....it is a catch 22. One he is Royalty and put up above others. Then on the other hand.....he also must show that he to would be willing to die for Queen and Country. Just as any commoner would. Being one that is renown has it's advantages as well as it's negatives. Either way for the enemy.....he is a high valued target. This would not be some punishment for what took place in Vegas.

    Truthfully he was on leave when in Vegas, as he was down in San Diego training with our Cobra Attack Helicoptors and the Apache as well. Which he had come home for the training. Taking the Brits training with their Command Sea King Helicoptor. Then their Puma and Lynx Helicoptors. Before coming over to the US for Final Training. Flying Combat!

    The Taliban would be stupid to kill him. Now to Capture him.....that would be quite a different story.

    I agree the man wants to serve his country, his assignment should not be contingent upon his name or relationships. His service is commendable...

    Based on the assertion that when the Leftists won power in The UK, they couldn't get out of Iraq and Afghanistan quick enough.

    When the Iranians took a half dozen Brit sailors hostage, did the Brits do anything? Uh...no!

    You probably shouldn't throw stones. That glass house thingie, ya know.

    The USA did nothing when the Iranians took over the USA embassy except a halfass rescue attempt. When that turned into a complete failure, y'all just curled up in the fetal position until Iran got bored.
