Nothing like putting a BIG TARGET on the young British Prince!
Drudge reported this on “Hero Harry”:
They’re calling him “Harry the Hero!”
British Royal Prince Harry has been fighting in Afghanistan since late December — and has been directly involved in gun battle, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.
The prince, a junior officer in the Blues and Royals, and third in line to the throne, has been a “magnificent soldier” and an “inspiration to all of Briton.”
Prince Harry is talking part in a new offensive against the Taliban.
Ministry of Defense and Clarence House refuse all comment. Army chiefs have managed to keep the prince away from media and have encourage fellow soldiers in his squadron to stay quiet.
The BBC reported this on the brave young prince:
Prince Harry has been fighting the Taleban on the front line in Afghanistan, the Ministry of Defence has confirmed.
Harry, 23, who is third in line to the throne, has spent the last 10 weeks serving in Helmand Province.
“I finally get the chance to do the soldiering that I want to do,” the prince said ahead of his deployment.
The deployment was subject to a news blackout deal, but broke down when leaked on US website the Drudge Report.
Chief of the General Staff Sir Richard Dannatt, who is head of the British Army, said he was disappointed the news had leaked.

Quote of the day- Prince Harry on his detractors:
He also said he hoped the British public reaction to his deployment would be positive and rounded on some commentators who branded him a coward for not going to Iraq, saying, “hopefully, they’ll eat their words.”
