    Prince Harry compares shooting insurgents to video games, Taliban says it's a mental problem

    Britain's Prince Harry, who compared shooting insurgents in Afghanistan to playing video games, "has probably developed a mental problem", the Taliban said Tuesday.



    "There are 49 countries with their powerful military failing in the fight against the mujahideen, and now this prince comes and compares this war with his games, PlayStation or whatever he calls it," Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid told AFP.
    Harry, third in line to the throne, said he had killed Taliban insurgents during a 20-week posting flying scores of missions over the restive southern province of Helmand in an Apache attack helicopter.
    As co-pilot, Harry was in charge of the weapons systems in a two-man cockpit, firing Hellfire air-to-surface missiles, rockets and a 30-millimetre gun.
    "It's a joy for me because I'm one of those people who loves playing PlayStation and Xbox, so with my thumbs I like to think I'm probably quite useful," he said in interviews released Monday after the end of his posting.
    "This is a serious war, a historic war, resistance for us, for our people," Mujahid told AFP by telephone from an undisclosed location.
    "But we don't take his comments very seriously, as we have all seen and heard that many foreign soldiers, occupiers who come to Afghanistan, develop some kind of mental problems on their way out."
    Asked by Britain's Press Association if he had killed from the cockpit, Harry said: "Yeah, so lots of people have.
    "Take a life to save a life," he shrugged. "If there's people trying to do bad stuff to our guys, then we'll take them out of the game."
    The Taliban have been waging an insurgency in Afghanistan for 11 years since being ousted from power for harbouring al Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden after the 9/11 attacks on the United States.
    During the war, they have faced more than 140,000 troops from over 50 countries but remain a serious threat to the Western-backed government with Nato troops due to withdraw in 2014.

    Well although i dont agree with the war there its good to see one of the royals up the front getting his nose "blooded".

    The royals of old used to lead the troops from the front so its good to see them carrying on that tradition............i notice that the scumbag liquid slime politicians children are nowhere near the fighting and the prick who started it all off Bush jr got himself a nice cushy behind the lines job when he could have gone to Vietnam...the wanker.
    Seems like all these people who love to talk a good fight have never seen the business end of an AK.

    It's like a video game when you got fifty mean around you as personal security guards and another two hundred and fifty around them watching them.That's the bare minimum security for any high ranking official,let alone for #3 in the British Empire.Actually,I've been right in the same place old Harry is now;just back when he was about three years old.Circa 1987 Afghanistan was still the Mujahideen and the Russians; and the US was paying contractors to try to teach the ragheads to walk erect and fight like white men;which all proved to be useless and eventually very counterproductive.Training ragheads is like herding blind three legged cats in the dark across a mine filed.

    Yeah, I've got loads of time for Harry. He's no coward, and is not afraid of controversy. I bet he's the Queen's favourite.

    The UK is being invaded by Pakis and Niggers, and this ginger cunt is off murdering tribesmen 8000 miles away (for Israel), while his dumbass diamond hat wearing grandmother publicly supports the invasion of the UK on national TV. I'll pull the trigger myself.

    I'd place more value on a knighthood given to me by myself.

    Usually, when someone asks a question, then they don't know the answer. What are you doing about immigration of blacks and pakis into your home country?

    Usually when someone doesn't know the answer they don't add something that presumes knowledge, such as a facepalm.

    Wait, what am I saying, USUALLY every fuckwit on the net knows it all, or thinks they do.

    Just answer the question. Or are you just another troll? What have you done to stop the immigration into your home country? Let me break it down for you. Have you taken up arms and killed blacks, hispanics, Arabs et al that have invaded your HOME country, ever?

    Let's say for the sake of argument that I had killed a number of immigrants.

    Would I detail that here?

    Let's break this down.

    It's not my job to defend the UK with an official monopoly on violence. I don't claim to be the head of state.

    Let's get back to this. Hmmmmmm? You're a hypocrite. Aces has given accounts of what he's done in the military. You haven't. Aren't you a Korean immigrant? Why did you run away from Britain to Korea?

    This is an ad hominem argument which is a distraction from the point at hand. Let's assume two cases:

    A) I have violently murdered several immigrants and conducted military operations against the British state with demands to end immigration.
    B) I am an interracial queer that spends most of his time campaigning for more immigration.

    How would either case change the truth value of whether the "Royal family" are a bunch of treasonous scum?

    And the Taliban are a shining example of mental health? These are the people who hunt down and decapitate guests for dancing at wedding celebrations. Blow them all to bits, Harry.

    Evading the answer yet again. Hmm. You're a lightweight. Time to knock you out, pillock. You bring nothing to this forum but aggression. No real contribution. Fuck off. Arsehole. To think I gave you the benefit of the doubt. I sincerely hope you troll elsewhere. We don't need low class here.
