    Now why are they releasing that information? Didn't he have to come back the last because of fears someone would gun for him for the glory of taking down a western royal because the Taliban (& everyone else) knew he was there? The poor guy can't get a break. He wants to serve, let him do so without the press hoopla putting him in harm's way, even more than he would be if he was just a regular bloke.

      I seems to me that kind of information is rather at cross-purposes for his safety...

    Prince Harry has always been the wild stallion of Dianas two boys. He'll be the one to kick the bucket first and quite possibly at young age. We shall see.

      Wow – that's a pretty mean thing to say. Do you have a death pool going on which Prince kicks it first? Prince William was randy when he was younger, too.

    Why are they announcing his location as well? To let the world know he's being deployed is one thing...and to think they're "concern" about his safety. Despite his behavior few weeks back, I hope he doesn't cause anymore trouble and focus himself in serving and represent himself a man second to the throne should. Other wise, he dishonor and fails his mother, Princess Diana

    Are they going to keep him out of the line of fire again ? Or is this the way they take care of their own when the family has been embarrased ? Sure is something to think about.
    Ooooh Nooo, I just created a conspirancy theory. Say it ain't so.

      Kinda boring...I've been reading the 85 mph blog, but all I can see now are the deletion answers; when it gets too long, it's dull as dirt.

    Never mind, Harry, keep on doing your own thing, dressed or otherwise. I'm sure Princess Margaret and Diana's spiriits are cheering you on. Just don't let those Taliban nut-cases get anywhere near you.

    People of the United States of America and Brittan,
    Harry, I commend you on doing your service in Afganistan,obviously the Taliban has a price on your head,In the worst case,donot let them take you alive,go down fighting if possible ,that was the code that I and numerous soldiers lived by in Vietnam because you knew if captured, you would be tortured to no end until death .Plus.if you do survive your tour,it will give you major whats called today in slang "Street Cred"which you probably already know in Brittan and the World.Solid war experience solidifies your position in the Royal Family as real potential future leader if you wanted to continue in Military Service at a higher level rather than always be 3rd in line to the Brittish Throne. Again the above are just suggestions from someone around your fathers age,

    There are actually a lot of particulars like that to take into consideration. That could be a great point to bring up. I offer the ideas above as general inspiration however clearly there are questions just like the one you carry up where a very powerful factor can be working in trustworthy good faith. I don?t know if finest practices have emerged around things like that, however I am positive that your job is clearly recognized as a fair game. Both girls and boys really feel the affect of just a second�s pleasure, for the rest of their lives.
