A Taliban spokesman said Monday that the terror group would use "all our strength" to kidnap or kill the U.K's Prince Harry, who just begun serving a four-month tour of duty as a chopper pilot in Afghanistan.

"We are using all our strength to get rid of him, either by killing or kidnapping," Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid told Reuters by phone. "We have informed our commanders in Helmand to do whatever they can to eliminate him."

“Harry was in the news last month after he was captured on film partying naked with friends in Las Vegas. “

He’ll do just fine. Boys just wanna have fun.

Sounds like a good opportunity to exercise some psy-ops. Send out a rumor that the prince is partying at the Kabul Kabaret and wait for the party guests to arrive...

...and if they should succeed, The Queen Of England should know that she is no longer safe in her own bed.

How refreshing on the anniversary of 9/11 to have all these wonderful stories about how well loved we are with the peaceful Muslims around the world. Let’s see within the last 12 hours or so, the US Embassy attacked in Egypt and Libya, with Muslims celebrating and Obama snubbing Israeli PM Netanyahu when he is coming to the US specifically to meet with Obama. Did I miss anything?

Yes, the spokeskid denies any snubbing of Bibi.

If Romney doesn’t capitalize on O turning the middle east over to the muslim thugs and insuring continuing decades of bloodshed and needless anxiety over oil supplies then he is a bigger fool than Biden.

If they succeed, the BBC will ask, “How can we integrate these unfortunate minorities into our societies so they don’t feel so threatened that they have to resort to murder?

What is actually incredible is that the British press, to rationalize his party-boy actions, gave out in a Sunday morning press briefing his full deployment details. Area of operations — arrival time, type of airframe, assignment as pilot, etcetera.

I could not believe it. The only thing they didn’t include were flight plans and aircraft number along with lazer guidance.

This is obviously exactly what the Royals wanted when they broadcast everything but his GPS location.

Seems to me that Prince Harry doesn’t mind playing bait. Maube this’ll get the Taliban out in the open.

I appreciate this fellow’s bravery, but maybe it’s not such a great idea to have him over there.

Don’t flame me, I don’t want to get in an argument about it.

I have it on the best authority that these guys are just kidding around and don’t mean it. Joe Biden, the intellect of the Dem Party, said: “Look, the Taliban per se is not our enemy.”

I’m sure they meant that in a peaceful and loving way.

Noticed your tagline.
(Father of LCpl. Karl Linn, KIA 1/26/2005 Al Haqlaniyah, Iraq)

Today, 9/11, is as good as any to remember your son's sacrifice.
What a fine young man he was.
Thank you, USMCPOP.

They can try—But he is well armed and knows how to use them. He also has a great many buds who might object to any attempt on his life. This could be a plot to smoke out Taliban operatives—Royal Bait if you will.

If he can live through the Vegas humiliation I don’t think the Tallyban will make him lose any sleep.
