SunUK ^ | 12/23/12 | Staff

Posted on 12/23/2012 11:36:09 AM PST by GQuagmire

PRINCE Harry has killed his first Taliban commander, The Sun can reveal. The 28-year-old gunship co-pilot was called on to unleash a missile strike to eliminate a senior terror leader. Harry has proved a massive hit with comrades in Helmand, Afghanistan, who have nicknamed him Big H. A defence insider said: "Big H is a legend. “We were on patrol and the Apache helicopters were called in. We heard this posh voice come over the radio and knew it was Big H. They were tracking a Taliban leader — he was commander level.

Replying this has got to be a huge security risk for Prince Harry.

Good for him. He’s one royal who’s earning his keep.

I think he’s cute—but I have an affinity for redheads........

Probably. He seems like a pretty normal guy and Brits are big on tradition.

All I see are guns in those pictures. When is Britain going to get over its infatuation with weapons of war? Don’t they understand that guns have no place in today’s society and that the way to handle disputes is through non-violent conflict resolution.

What’s come over them anyway, they seem bloodthirsty, celebrating the death of other humans - all because of their “gun culture”, over there.

I agree. It was the first thing I thought of when I saw the headlines. He will have a red target on his back from now on. Thse Muslim fanatics never forget, either. They may take it out on any member of the royal family now.

Idiot reporters.

The best I can figure out is that the last British king to lead in battle was George II, at The Battle of Dettingen (1743), the last British prince to fight in battle was George VI at a turret officer at the Battle of Jutland (1916).

Prince Andrew, Duke of York, was in attendance during the Falklands war and was part of the rescue effort for a torpedoed ship, but was not allowed to participate in battle.

Interesting. I always liked him, though he seems a bit dim and shallow. In England it is widely believed that he is the bastard of James Hewitt, Diana’s paramour.

That's because he isn't royal bloodline. You can tell by looking that James Hewitt is his real dad. Its obvious.

I get tired of hearing this slanderous crap. Harry is not a bastard. There are quite a few relatives on his mother's side with his looks.

I’ve heard that; however, even Hewitt himself said that Harry was born before he and the boys’ Mother started their affair! I’ve looked at pictures of the Queen and Harry over and over, and I can definitely see the Queen in Harry! They’ve got similar features, in the mouth when they smile, and in the set of their eyes and he also has Charles’s ears! So I don’t think he’s Hewitt’s kid!

Whoever’s child he is, it doesn’t seem to matter. He seems to be loved and accepted by Charles, himself, the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh, and his brother, etc... Even if he wasn’t Charles’s, they don’t have a problem with him!

It’s a shame we don’t have a president capable of producing Harry’s equivalent.

He’s a fine-looking young man who, I think, favors his grandfather. He seems to be well-liked by his fellow troops and to those who have referred to him as dim, let me just say that you can’t be dim and be a gunship pilot (and live very long).

I know, it’s getting really tiresome, now! I think he looks like his Grandma, the Queen! He has ears like Charles! Look at my other post. Some people on here seem like they know everything, and they don’t! Even if it were to be true, it doesn’t matter; the Royal Family all seem to accept him and love him very much, so that’s what counts! Furthermore, he’s serving the Queen, so she would be proud of him, anyway!
