Might be a good thread for the UK'ers here, dunno, but do you guys think Prince Harry should go to Iraqi? I see he's been pulled out and is very disappointed. Some are saying that it means a princes life is worth more than the other men over there, don't know if I agree with that. But, do you reckon he should be able to go...with all the personal death threats going on etc. BBC NEWS | UK | Prince Harry and Iraq: Reaction .. attachment.php?attachmentid=55961&stc=1&d=1179401395

If he wants to go why stop him? For the safety of his comrades I would probably not tell anybody though that he went there. That way if "nobody' knows he is even there or where he is or with who... he can do his duty.

Or they could sent him in lone-wolf special raid style so they wouldn't have to worry about insurgants blowing his entire platoon to pieces. =p

I think he's someone the brittish should be proud of. Not like those wusses most countries have these days. If he wants to fight then let him damned, the only danger is that terrorists will be way too happy to blow him up. :/

Him being there will bring complications, because he will be a high value target. When it comes down to it, though, I think he should be allowed to go. Not letting him go screams of discrimination, and there's too much of that here as it is.

(For anyone that doesn't know, we're not talking about forcing him to go to Iraq; he wants to go. We're talking about whether he should be allowed to go by the military).

It would be discrimination if for the other troops if he were not to go. It wouldn't be fair if he just wouldn'y go because he's royal...

The simple fact is, that as British royalty, he's a high priority target. That doesn't just mean he is in extra danger, but it also means everyone in his platoon is in danger. Should the preference of one person go over such a high risk for these soldiers?

So don't let anyone know where he his, Governments keep secrets all the time. I think he should be allowed to go if he chooses.

For accuracy's sake, he's a tank recon troop commander. 4 or 5 vehicles and around 15 men; not a platoon (30-50 men).

Personally, I couldn't give a toss if he went or not. I know he is 'royalty' but not allowing him to go is like saying 'everyone else is out there dying for you and your country'. They didn't stop Kings marching out to do battle in the older days. Though I can't see Prince Charles going out all armoured up sitting on the top of a Tank. But yeah, I don't really care whether he goes or not. All I will say is this: What is the point of being in the Military if you aren't allowed to go into dangerous zones?

Did anyone even read what was said here. Basically chaos is terminating the discussion right here. He is a high value target, there for his platoon face extra danger if he were to go with them... Chaos is 100% correct above...
