This coverage pisses me off. Oh yeah let's send Harry, he's not going to be King anytime soon, but we're not sending William.

Hello. A life is a life. And no soldier is more precious than any other. Both these boys want to fight. Let them.

He's not the only Harry that wants to fight a war.

He is more precious when he's the second in line to the Throne.

How many Americans would want the President to fight in Iraq and risk being killed?

But an inside source source insisted: "Harry's desperate to go.

"I wouldn't want to be the one telling him he can't get on the plane."


By all means let him go then......although I'm sure his mother wouldn't have been happy with it.

They sure did.

Send him. Let him share the danger that his "subjects" face.

Good, maybe when he becomes King he will have a lot more honour and respect for the people that serve the monarch. He's keeping with the old traditions and that's fine by me

Didn't kings used to lead their troops into battle?


The last one was King George II when he defeated the French at the Battle of Dettingen in 1743.

But that wouldn't happen nowadays, just as you'll probably never see any American President lead any American troops into battle anymore.

One reason why William - and maybe Harry - will probably never be sent to war is the same reason why members of the Royal Family never fly on the same aeroplane - if it crashes several members of the Royal family will be wiped out all in one go.

And think of the extra danger that British soldiers will be put under if the Princes were sent to war. The enemy would see the killing of the Princes as some sort of special trophy and so would put the regiment in greater danger.

Hmmmmm the word everyone comes to mind..... :wink:


I'm not talking about just Bush. I'm talking about any President.

The Americans don't want to risk getting their Head of State killed, so why should the British risk getting their Head of State, or the future Head of State, killed?

However, the British Royals do set an example. When was the last time the children of a serving American President joined the Armed Forces?

You're right, so one would think the Media would shut the hell up and let Prince Harry serve without the hype, because the hype would definitely make it worth killing or capturing him alive..

You'd send the king into combat? Shall we send the President too? Actually that wouldn't be a bad idea, at that.

Let's send the Queen too since we're sending heads of state into combat.

So you wouldn't mind or care if every member of the Royal Family died?
