England’s Prince Harry – “There’s no way I’m going to put myself through Sandhurst, and then sit on my arse back home while my boys are out fighting for their country.”

In a world where selfish nattering nabobs of negativity have almost managed to convince people that Iraq was a bad idea, Prince Harry of England is having none of that talk. He understands the stakes. He welcomes his duty to country, and to the fundamental rights of man.

Great Britain weathered the Blitzkrieg in WWII while the United States mostly stood idle on the sidelines. Winston Churchill called it Britain’s finest hour. The Middle East weathered Saddam’s 3 wars, and 2 million dead, before somebody finally did something about our modern day Hitler. Prince Harry understands the cost of freedom from his England’s recent history, despite the feckless nature of the mob obsessed with their pop culture and today’s lunch. Prince Henry’s heroic duty to country and mankind will be a welcomed footnote in the history books. Democracies need more heroes like him.

I realize that Prince Henry’s presence in Iraq will make him a target, which has caused some sniping by the armchair complainers. A little extra security is worth the benefit to troop morale and national pride. In the long tradition of the British Royals serving in combat, this is another one of the monarchy’s finest hours.

See Daily Mirror.

PRINCE Harry will be serving on the front line in Iraq by the end of the month.

The 22-year-old prince will head for Basra with comrades from the Blues and Royals Regiment within days and will then probably be deployed along the border with Iran.

A senior military source said: “The final details are being sorted, but he is definitely going. Naturally, his royal status has to be taken into account – but he will see action.”

Second Lieutenant Harry, who insisted on going, is likely to be in charge of a troop of 12 soldiers in light armoured vehicles.

They are expected to be sent on reconnaissance missions, spending days or even weeks out in the desert. Defence Secretary Des Browne is expected to announce the news on February 26.
