NBC Panel Scolds Prince Harry: 'Why Do You Need to Antagonize the Taliban?'
NewsBusters ^

Posted on 01/23/2013 3:56:15 PM PST by chessplayer

During a panel discussion on Wednesday's NBC Today, attorney Star Jones and the network's chief medical editor Nancy Snyderman hyperventilated over Britain's Prince Harry revealing in interviews that he killed Taliban fighters during combat in Afghanistan. Jones fretted: "Why do you need to antagonize the Taliban?"

Snyderman chimed in: "I thought he jumped the shark when he was shown playing video games and then it was, 'Oh my God, we killed people.'" Co-host Matt Lauer sparked the exchange by wondering: "He talks about his missions, the missions he went on where he was fired upon by the Taliban and returned fire, killing some members of the Taliban. And he takes it kind of matter-of-factly....What do you think about it? Is it okay?"

Do these airheads realize that anyone who isn’t a Muslim antagonizes the Islamist radicals?

Well, someone shoots at you, you shoot back. Pretty simple really.

Just being a living non-Islamist antagonizes them. So effem. Hell, even other tribes of Islamists antagonize them.

Go ahead and kill them, but don't make them feel bad about it!

15 yards, personal foul, for taunting.

The last thing we want to do is get the enemy mad at us!

The media has long past becoming a parody of itself. You couldn’t write a SNL skit that was more a mockery.

I'd love to see Prince Harry bust one of these NBC talking heads, up-side their head!

These Libs and metrosexuals see a real man, and they just aren't sure how to respond.

They are upset because he kills the enemy. Good grief.

You don’t reason with a rattlesnake. They are, precisely, unreason-able. You kill it.

The talliban is a rattlesnake.

If you kill a Talibabi, are you as an Englishman required to break out in tears? What does the media want him to do?

The man is a hero in my eyes.

He doesn't "need" to antagonize them - he wants to kill them!

Are they expecting him to burst into tears for them? Say he’s sorry for what he does? Maybe he really is that non-nonchalant about it, because he sees that he is saving others. Maybe he has deeper feelings, but the media has proven time and again that they are not worth sharing those with.

He didn't kill "people." He killed filthy, murdering, savage scum, and there are a lot more of them that need killing.

These idiots need to shut up.

I wish Helicopter Harry could make a couple live-fire runs at 30 Rock in New York.

Any weekday morning after 7 a.m. Eastern, then again in the evening at 8.

And a final pass Sunday morning at around 7:30 a.m. to light up the idiots on Meet the Press.

“What do you think about that Matt? Is it okay?”

And only after he was fired upon first. Self defense. And libs consider that antagonizing. I guess the Brits shouldn’t have antagonized the NAZI’s by shooting down their bombers during the Battle of Britain.

"Look, the Taliban per se is not our enemy. That's critical."
- Joey Biden

Why would Prince Harry be mean to Obama's and Biden's Taliban friends? Other than providing training, funding, and logistical support to the 9-11 hijackers who killed 3,000 Americans, murdering a few thousand other innocent westerners, and beating/stoning their own women for crimes such as showing an ankle or adultery (i.e., being raped), they haven't done anything the far left wouldn't do. Besides, who are we, with all our Western flaws, to judge their 6th century culture?

I saw the interview before it was interrupted by Harry being called to action and I'm totally in support of this guy............Any criticism of him is off the wall.

He was dealt a bad hand by being born into British royalty and he's trying to live his life as normally as possible.......

Frickin' idiot. It's his job to kill hostiles. Do these morons think that the pointy barrel-looking thingy at the front of his helicopter fires Nerf balls?
