So Prince Harry is soon to be returning to the UK, having completed his tour in Afghanistan....
Prince Harry has confirmed he killed Taliban insurgents during his latest tour of Afghanistan, saying: "We fire when we have to - take a life to
save a life."
The third-in-line to the throne is on his way home after a five-month tour of the war-torn country as an Apache pilot gunner, where he said his unit
took enemy fighters "out of the game".
The prince's job meant he was in the front seat of the attack helicopter, controlling an array of weapons including a 30mm cannon and hellfire
When asked if he had killed from the cockpit the 28-year-old replied: "Yeah, so lots of people have."
However Captain Wales, as he is known in the Army Air Corps, said the sight of an Apache was often enough to make Taliban fighters flee.
Prince Harry: I Killed Taliban in Afghanistan
Has anyone been watching the interviews with him on Sky News tonight? I knew he wasn't that fond of the media, but he didn't hold back in displaying
showing how much he despises the press. He even said to the interviewer that the only reason "you" (meaning the press) was there at all was because
a deal was done to cover the prince. He REALLY didn't give off any hints that he liked them there lol.
Whether it was regarding the subject of Kate and Williams baby, or his service in Afghanistan, he gave very strong not so subtle hints at what he
thought of the press. I guess you can understand why, he even said that this stemmed from his childhood for obvious reasons.
Best comment...."Everyones guilty of buying a newspaper i guess, as long as they don't believe what they read."
Nice one Harry, we'll see you in ATS yet.
On a separate note, he talks about his role as an Apache pilot in Afghanistan and said that it was the only way he could go, as they wouldn't let him
back there again as a soldier on the ground.
So they spend millions of pounds training him up as an Apache pilot, so he can do a few months then come back. They said tonight that he most probably
won't go back again.
Does anyone else feel thats a bit of a waste? Why not train someone who can stay in the pilots job longer?
Oh well, he's front page of all the papers tomorrow......so i'm sure we'll hear a lot more about this for a while.
