Afghan Taliban threaten to kidnap and kill Prince Harry
Reuters ^ | September 10, 2012 | Staff

The Afghan Taliban said on Monday they were doing everything in their power to try to kidnap or kill Britain's Prince Harry, who arrived in Afghanistan last week to fly attack helicopters.

Queen Elizabeth's grandson is in Afghanistan on a four-month tour, based in Camp Bastion in the volatile Helmand province, where he will be on the front line in the NATO-led war against Taliban insurgents.

"We are using all our strength to get rid of him, either by killing or kidnapping," Zabihullah Mujahid, a Taliban spokesman, told Reuters by phone from an undisclosed location.

Would we send one of Mr. Obama’s daughters to the front lines? Forget that, there’s about as much chance of one of them enlisting as there is of their dad admitting his homosexuality before November.

"We are using all our strength to get rid of him, either by killing or kidnapping," ...

So if you don't get rid of him, doesn't that mean your "Allah" either doesn't smile upon your venture or he's a pathetic little wanker with no ability to affect events of this world?

Pissing off a guy who has his own attack helicopter is not a bright idea.

Gee, I wonder how they knew the prince was going to be there? Oh wait, I remember....the British press let the whole world know he was going to be there. If something happens to the prince, let them share in the blame.

Here’s hoping that Harry gets to demonstrate that the sentiment is mutual.

They should never have publicized his tour in Afghanistan. No one needed to know.

Looks like HRH Prince Harry of Wales would make the perfect bait for a giant Taliban rat trap. Put out some disinformation as to his whereabouts, and “snap” anyone who shows up with bad intentions.

They should deploy a decoy Apache with Harry’s Coat of Arms on it to draw out the Taliban then bring the rain, hee hee.

Read this and then think back on all the silly outrage about the pictures of Harry in Las Vegas. Here is a young man putting his life on the line and who is a target for these savages. If he wants to play “strip billiards” with a girl, I don’t think I’m going to get too upset.

So they’re not wild about Harry? We’re not wild about them. So why aren’t we carpet bombing these bass-terds?
Oh yeah, that restraining order from the Southern Poverty Law Center. And also, our muslim president.

Pull all our troops, and have them patrol our southwest border. Nuke the Taliban, Tehran, Mexico City and Los Angeles.
And Chicago, twice.

It would have been impossible to keep quiet. That is why they announced it themselves so that they could break the story their way.

Harry was really annoyed when his last tour was leaked and the bigwigs at the MOD insisted be be brought home, out of the front line.

As far as I know, Captain Wales is going on another tour and has endorsed it being made public so that there can’t be a repeat incident.

As Las Vegas already knows, our Harry has balls of steel.

The Brits showed their intellectual stupidity by telling the world that Harry was on his way to a particular province in Afghan and that he’d be flying a helicopter. Youknow the scum taliban has an increased effort on taking down a Brit helo in hopes of getting the prince.

I would call that a reason to personally revoke ROE. That revocation would include my team, so happy hunting fellas! What a fine example of service, sacrificing a luxurious lifestyle for Astan.

Didn't Osama know that Russell Crowe's fighting was poetry?

as there is of their dad admitting his homosexuality before November.

Or of you figuring out that Obama is a Muslim Terrorist playing President. Ever figure out why Hussein illegally attacked Libya? How about Hussein's support for the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt?

Will you figure it out when Syria, Iraq, Egypt and Libya join Iran to attack Israel? Or are you waiting for CBS and NY TIMES to tell you?
