Taliban Targeted Prince Harry In Lethal Attack On Afghan Base!

| Filed under: Royals RoycePolitikSad Sad



The lives of two U.S. Marines were taken on Saturday when a lethal attack by the Taliban targeted an Afghan base just a mile away from where Prince Harry is stationed.

Just a few days ago, it was revealed that the Taliban had threatened to kidnap and/or assassinate the prince during his stay in Afghanistan.

The two soldiers were killed in Camp Leatherneck, which is located just a mile away from Harry's location, the British base, Camp Bastion, in the southern Helmand province.

Taliban spokesman Qari Youssef Ahmadi took credit for the attack, saying:

"We attacked that base because Prince Harry was also on it and so they can know our anger. Thousands more suicide attackers are ready to give up their lives for the sake of the Prophet."

This is just so unbelievably sad and horrific. Our hearts go out to the families of the fallen soldiers.

    They are endangering lives by sending him there. His work can't be that important.

    Re: movedtocomment – Where's the thumbs up button? I wholeheartedly agree. My brother is over there right now, and news like this is just terrifying.

  3. 3

    My brother is at Leatherneck. The most terrifying nights for me are the ones spent wide awake waiting to get contacted by him letting us know he's alright.

    poor harry i guess they didnt get a look at his doodle so want a closer look

    He's just another soldier and does what he is being told. The military told him to go to Afghanistan, so he did. Should he be all princy and say no? The military should know better and not send him to Afghanistan. They are endangering other soldiers. Prince Harry is simply following his orders.

    Re: ONIT – I dont think thats the case, he is there because he wants to serve. They picked the safest job he could do, and would pull him out early like before if he was in any real danger.

    those poor souls, harry shouldnt be there hes putting himself and other soilders in danger, i can only imagine what it was like for the dead soilders familys to hear the sad news, god bless the familys and all the troops out there risking their live so that we will all be safe. That is what i call a true hero

    I don't understand why they told the world where Harry is. They should have done what they did last time he was serving, and what they did when his brother was out and that's not announce where he is, only say when they have returned. It's not Harry's fault what has happened, it's the fact that its all over the news where abouts he is stationed, which, unfortunately, is playing right into the talibans hands as they know exactly where to find him and what camps to now target.

    Re: Emz – Harry isn't "putting himself" anywhere. He's in the military. He doesn't make those decisions. He wants to do his duty to his country the same way our guys do but the people in charge need to find another way for him to do that, that doesn't put an even larger risk on everyone else.

    Re: movedtocomment – [re=6183457]
    They have to send him over there to "show" the British public that he's not simply a leech but a hero serving his country. What bull. This idiot will never leave the base and if he does it will only be to be filmed "leading his men in danger". Garbage. Totally agree with you.

  11. sukhi says – reply to this


    He's not just another solider actually. He's a captain. At age 27. Wanna guess what he did to deserve that position? Oh, what, fuck all? Yeah, that sums it up.

  12. 12

    Of course they do. For them he's a symbol for the west.

  13. G.R says – reply to this


    Re: movedtocomment

    No, your govt is endangering the lives of troops by having them stationed there, do get a grip

  14. 14

    The media should not have reported that Harry had deployed until after he returned , just that he was on military duty. THE IDIOTS. JUST SAY OK HE IS IN PUT A TARGET ON HIS BACK. GEE THANKS .

  15. Minnie cath says – reply to this


    Hi I think one of those soldiers who have a buddy killed is going to turn on Prince Harry and do something to him . For the safety of all the soldiers and Prince Harry himself Get him out of there .
    With him there it is doing more harm than good .

    Re: movedtocomment – He is a rescue helicopter pilot. I think that just might be important. He is in the military so he is not choosing to go. They station him there.

  17. LiberalsMakeMeSick says – reply to this


    Re: DWF541 – You are right! But the media just reports to get head lines. They do not care about protecting except Muslims and Obama.

    "The Taliban said it was a response to an amateur US-made film mocking Islam and later claimed the base was chosen because Harry was there"

    –amateur US-made film mocking Islam–

    Later claimed? They probably werent 100% sure he was in the area, once they found out they changed their story. They hit a base in one of the most heavily defended areas in Afghan with one of the busiest airports, of course there was a high chance he is going to be there.

    If some twat hadnt edited a video and pissed of the arab world there probably wouldnt have been an attack, i think its very little to do with Harry, he was just there`ish.

  19. 19

    Ummm…while I don't quite know why they chose to share where he was stationed this time, I'm not sure how he should be blamed for putting people's lives in danger. He's just doing his job, which he does because HE doesn't want to just live an easy life with his title, just like all the other soldiers. Every single one of them has chosen to put their own lives in danger. They're in a war…

    Also, I honestly think they just hit a random American base and turned it into this for publicity. If they wanted Harry…why not just hit his base?

    Re: getagrip – its not about no fucking video…..there are hundreds of videos on youtube making fun of islam….these people will use any excuse to to kill and destroy and love to bring up the old….oh you insulted our faith…..and what happens??? they get an effing apology…….i think it's time for christians to start rioting, maybe we will get an apology for all the anti christian stuff we always get thrown our way!

  21. 21

    Re: Mia – My thoughts exactly.

  22. getagrip says – reply to this


    Re: emeralfire – It had in and insulted mohammed, i think thats different than just mocking islam. Maybe there are 100's of videos mocking mohammed, i dont know and its not like the taliban need an excuse to attack a western base, i just think it has very little to do with Harry. Also, if christians rioted in the same scale it would make them no better than the rioting islamics, enough with the pointless killing and destruction in the name of faith, its not what religion is about.

  23. 23

    Prince Harry has teams Navy Seals & Delta Forces protecting him 24/7 while the media takes pictures of him pretending to do "ARMY THINGS"….

  24. 24

    Re: ONIT – Bull shit. They send him out for publicity. They wouldn't risk his head like that and actually send him anywhere near action. He's hidden away like the precious prince he is.

  25. 25

    On Sept 7, the Sun UK published a lengthy spread on Harry in Afghanistan. From the detail, it appears it was sanctioned either by the British govt. or the Royal family or both. Months ago on another deployment, his whereabouts were very hush-hush. Drudge broke the news of his location and was roundly chastised for divulging such info. The crux was, Drudge put Harry and anyone near him in danger. This time, they advertise everything about his deployment without concern. It was a PR move to divert from his Vegas escapades. Now, everyone near him really have to watch their backs.

    Nuke Mecca!

    2 people died because of these psychos, what's wrong with the muslims? they are getting more and more insane, now Harry can go back to Las Vegas to play nude poker with his whores, while the families of these soldiers are left without their sons, just get the hell out of those countries and let them kill themselves.

  28. 28

    When you're in the military you go where they tell you! Google 'movie stars in WWII' the list is long, and the names will surprise you! Hitler had price on Clark Gable's head along with many others! Real men don't try to get out of active duty, they step up and serve whether they are royalty, celebrity or the average Joe!

  29. BTW says – reply to this


    btw. Marines are NOT soldiers. Soldiers are in the Army you just call a Marine a Marine.

  30. 30

    Re: tutituti – Grow a brain, it is NOT Prince Harry's fault that there are radical muslims out there killing people, he is not responsible for their behavior! Best plan of action is to remove the radical muslims for this world. Only a psycho would blame Harry for what they did!

  31. 31

    Re: SabannaRita – Thank you for your brother's service to our country. I admire folks who are willing to put their lives on the line.

    However I do think Harry is putting other lives in danger and their War Office needs to think about that.

  32. 32

    How about more stories on the weekends - especially Sunday. Surely someone got drunk in a fight or car accident. Sundays are so bleak on the gossip sites. Thank you for your consideration.

  33. 33

    Not surprised at all! They need to get him out of there!! They will continue to strike if they think he is there…dangerous!!

  34. 34

    Yeah, for americans losing their lives because this twat wants to pretend to be in the military to earn brownie points from the citizens, and to remind brits royals aren't COMPLETELY useless.

    Re: getagrip – i wasn't actually suggesting Christians should riot, i was making a point….Christians get their faith bashed all the time….there is a film that has Jesus having sex with Mary….Comedians (Bill Mayr (spelling?) types have no problems completely stepping all over it…..yet, nobody cares…..someone insults something in Islam, they all riot and we apologize……it's bullshit

  36. 36

    Re: smithygirl – you should grow a brain and learn to read, i said "psychos" in plural, i was talking about the muslims, but everybody knows that Harry will go back to his life of drugs and whores when he comes back to england, while the family of the soldiers that died have to suffer.

  37. chloe says – reply to this


    why are they revealing his location publicly? maybe they should keep that to themselves.

  38. Isotener says – reply to this


    Re: sukhi
    Are you kidding? Harry had a major sulk when he was told he shouldn't go back to Afghanistan after the last tour was cut short! He insisted 'He was a soldier' Well really, what kind of soldier is prepared to put his colleagues' lives on the line so that he can be a 'hero'? Grow up Harry. We supported your right to personal freedom in Las Vegas but don't think you can have it all ways. Whoever is supporting you at the senior level should be ashamed of the extra anxiety caused to the families of soldiers out there.

    Re: getagrip – "If some twat hadnt edited a video and pissed of the arab world there probably wouldnt have been an attack.." i am sure you intentions are good.. but, unfortunately this is exactly what the global industry of terror wants :to shut the whole world up, bring it on it's knees.. mission accomplished.
