    Taliban say they hope to kidnap or assassinate Prince Harry

    "The Afghan Taliban have said they are doing everything in their power to kidnap or assassinate Prince Harry, who arrived in Afghanistan last week to fly attack helicopters.The prince is in Afghanistan on a four-month tour, based out of Camp Bastion in volatile Helmand province, where he will be on the frontline in the Nato-led war against Taliban insurgents. "We are using all our strength to get rid of him, either by killing or kidnapping," the Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid told Reuters by telephone from an undisclosed location.


    "We have informed our commanders in Helmand to do whatever they can to eliminate him," Mujahid added, declining to go into detail on what he dubbed the "Harry operations". The 27-year-old prince, who is third in line to the throne, took up his new role two weeks after he was photographed frolicking naked in Las Vegas. Known in the military as Captain Wales, he first served in Afghanistan in 2008 as an on-ground air controller, but his tour was cut short when a news blackout, designed to protect him while on the frontline, collapsed.


    The Ministry of Defence has said the threat to Prince Harry's life in Afghanistan is less severe in helicopters."

    Should the the Taliban attempt this the only thing they can assure themselves of is more occupation with a view toward their own annihilation.

    That would be a pretty stupid thing to do, Brittain is withdrawing major combat forces anyway and the U.S. isn't that far behind them. Take a member of the royal family and next thing you know you aren't fighting the RAF and army, but rather you have the SAS to deal with. They don't play nice.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Yeah.....I was thinking more along that line and the End of a certain Group of People. Not the Use of an Entire Army or RAF.

    Not only would brittish special forces be involved, but we would end up re-engaging with full SF as well. Our war weariness would not supercede an ally with a captive VIP, it would not end well for forces who already have a shot at recapturing the country anyway.

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

    i think it's a poor idea to have him there again. security around him is going to have to be increased, so he's not just putting his own life on the line. i understand and admire his desire to serve his country, but it's my opinion that choosing to do so in this manner has the potential to do more harm than good.

    Well ya heard.....the Haqqani stated they would not harm nor kill the American Prisoner they have. Despite us classifying them as a terrorist group last week. These Taliban I doubt are tied to them.

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

    I love the idea of Harry deploying to Afghanistan. It shows the kind of commitment NATO allies should have in the fight. Furthermore I want to go back to the days where royals establish bleak or terrible titles based upon their war activities. For example "The Dread Prince Harry, Scythe of Helmand, Lord Militant British Forces".

    No one ever accused the Taliban of being the picture of mental health.....
