Prince Harry Threatened by Taliban
I do not usually get my info from TMZ, but I just saw this and thought to share;
According to TMZ Prince Harry is being targeted for death in Afghanistan ... so says a rep for the Taliban (yes, they have a rep).
Harry -- a helicopter pilot in the British military -- is currently on a 4 month tour in Afghanistan ... where he is reportedly fighting Taliban insurgents on the front lines.
Obviously, his presence has pissed off the Taliban ... and now terrorist spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid tells Reuters the group has made it a top priority to kill or kidnap the Prince.
"We are using all our strength to get rid of him, either by killing or kidnapping," Mujahid said during a phone interview either conducted in a cave ... or a suburb in Pakistan.
During the interview, Mujahid referred to the Taliban plans as the "Harry Operations" ... added, "We have informed our commanders in Helmand to do whatever they can to eliminate him."
I know it is honourable for Royalties to be a part in their national army and all that, but seriously is it necessary for him to be in a place like Afghanistan? Why can't they let him go to other places only, I am usually not one in support of preferencial treatment, but I think certain situations call for it.
