Everybody panic, old chap!
 
2008-02-28 12:57:41 PM
Fark Wills, Harry would be a cooler king.
 
2008-02-28 12:57:45 PM
Also, farked already?
 
2008-02-28 12:58:24 PM
Time to post the pix of his ULTRA hot ex!!
 
2008-02-28 12:58:40 PM
Meh. I couldn't give a royal fark.
 
2008-02-28 12:58:54 PM
Kinda late with the news flash if he has been in Afghanistan for the last 3 months.
 
2008-02-28 12:58:59 PM
I looked at the pic in the article and for a second I thought he was holding a slingshot.
 
2008-02-28 12:59:03 PM
Bravo Zulu, your highness!

Sets an example we yanks aren't likey to soon follow, unfortunately.
 
2008-02-28 12:59:10 PM
Friendly fire in the works?
 
2008-02-28 12:59:12 PM
You won't see any of the Bush or Cheney family fighting in Afghanistan or Iraq...
 
2008-02-28 12:59:28 PM
I guess bullet magnet is better than dick magnet
 
2008-02-28 12:59:50 PM
Harry is the hotter one anyway.

/was born two days before him
//take THAT
 
2008-02-28 12:59:53 PM
I wonder if his uncle is there attracting the bullets with his chopper...
 
2008-02-28 12:59:54 PM
Article worked fine for me.

But seriously, I know he wants to but is it a good idea to let royalty patrol the streets? Granted I think all leaders should see what really happens in the world but with the media today you're automatically a target.
 
2008-02-28 01:00:38 PM
I'm more of a Republican than a Royalist, but lets consider how likely it is that any children of American aristocrats would put themselves in harms way.
 
2008-02-28 01:01:40 PM
Prince Harry has been serving on the front line in Afghanistan

In other news there are "front lines" in Afghanistan. Show them to me, even show them to me in Iraq. The truth is there are no front lines in either country, we are basically a "peacekeeping force" in both countries. We just go around trying to keep the peace, kick in doors looking for terrorists, etc.
 
2008-02-28 01:01:44 PM
He should wear his nazi uniform while he's out on patrol.
 
2008-02-28 01:01:53 PM
vinndave: Kinda late with the news flash if he has been in Afghanistan for the last 3 months.

It wasn't supposed to be leaked. 3 months before it hit the press is pretty good, by todays standards.
 
2008-02-28 01:02:00 PM
Non-story that shouldn't have been reported. It's honestly not news worthy and now he has to withdraw because of the news reports.
 
2008-02-28 01:02:18 PM
Too bad that he can't be....

The Bullet Dodger!!!

Why release this "secret"? Why now?

why ask why?
 
2008-02-28 01:02:30 PM
Boot camp must have been interesting for him:

"Prince Harry?? THAT SOUNDS LIKE ROYALTY! ARE YOU ROYALTY, PRINCE HARRY?!"

midpoint: lets consider how likely it is that any children of American aristocrats would put themselves in harms way.

If they hang out with the Kennedys, it's pretty much a daily thing.
 
2008-02-28 01:02:43 PM
neat
 
2008-02-28 01:02:52 PM
I disagree with the war entirely, but f-ing good on him and the royal family for being consistent in their principles. (Damn, I think I just lost a chance for a good pun.)
 
2008-02-28 01:02:54 PM
No hero tag?
 
2008-02-28 01:02:57 PM
I usually don't believe in holding back stories, but Drudge seems orgasmic over breaking the story and that Harry has to come home, leaving his regiment down a soldier.

/nice job, Matt.
 
2008-02-28 01:03:08 PM
to be fair, he's in the 201st Milky Tea Brigade.
 
2008-02-28 01:03:40 PM
cool

I nominate members of the Hilton and Kennedy families.

News Flash? Really?

Cassata26: You won't see any of the Bush or Cheney family fighting in Afghanistan or Iraq...

Well, reason being that the most manly child of either of them has a kid now....

\but seriously, this is the best thing the royals could do....
 
2008-02-28 01:04:51 PM
Good for him.

/I thought he was in an armoured regiment and commanded a tank...
 
2008-02-28 01:04:51 PM
Fark you Matt Drudge. This should only have been reported after his return from a combat zone. Not only are you putting Harry at risk, you are risking the lives of every coalition soldier serving. Not only that, but now the whole world knows which farking FOB he's at.
 
2008-02-28 01:05:04 PM
Heh, interview on BBC before he left (they struck a deal with the British media to blackout news of his deployment - leaked by an American website apparantly).

Anyhoo..

Interviewer : Have you told your Grandmother yet?

Harry : Yes I have told my Grandmother.. well, actually, she told me..

Love it, she is his Commanding Officer after all.
 
2008-02-28 01:05:09 PM
That's "Taleban", stupmitter. Sheesh.

I love it! You gotta think his drill instructor was shiatting his pants the whole time "Oh man, once this kid gets back home I'm going to be scrubbing penguin shiat off a rock in the Falklands until I retire"
 
2008-02-28 01:05:56 PM
This was very selfless of the prince to want to be treated like everyone else and serve his country, but it's unfortunate this was ever reported on as it now puts his fellow soldiers' lives in danger

midpoint: I'm more of a Republican than a Royalist, but lets consider how likely it is that any children of American aristocrats would put themselves in harms way.

Isn't McCain's son serving? Or did serve?

Not saying for sure, but I think I remember reading that.

Err, I mean...

I shot tea out of my nose. Into a terrorist training camp.

I came in here to say this. Kudos to Harry for turning down leisurely luxury for a few years.

Not to rain on your parade, but John McCain's son is a US Marine
/probably counts as "American aristocracy"
 
2008-02-28 01:06:38 PM
I guess pretty much anything will pass for a news flash this month.
 
2008-02-28 01:06:39 PM
Good for him.


Snuff out a bunch of cavemen for us plz.
 
2008-02-28 01:06:40 PM
ElPresidente: That's "Taleban"a word that was originally in another script, so latinizations can be inconsistent, stupmitter. Sheesh.

FTFY.
 
2008-02-28 01:06:42 PM
He is a hero. He does not have to go. But has.

But from another prospective, if he does not go then they might as well pull the plug on the whole monarchy. The royals might be born into a world of privilege but they are also supposed to carry the burden the highest responsibility including serving in the military at times of war. If they are excluded from serving, the last shred of justification of their status is destroyed.

The_Sponge:

Hiltons, yes. Bushes, yes. Those Romney scamps ("My dad is running for president and I'm fighting in the war by helping him with his campaign"), yes. But I'd venture to argue that JFK was a farking war hero. (And I'm having trouble finding too many living Kennedys who could enlist right about now...)
 
2008-02-28 01:07:06 PM
Once returning home he should find matt Drudge and smack him silly for the time remaining he was supposed to be serving on the frontlines. New media my ass - just no class.
 
2008-02-28 01:07:12 PM
midpoint: I'm more of a Republican than a Royalist, but lets consider how likely it is that any children of American aristocrats would put themselves in harms way.

Sen. Jim Webb's (D-VA) son is over there.

/calling it now, Jim Webb will be Obama's running mate
