Well, atleast he showed some cajones buy even going over there for the reason he did. Did Bush? Nooo. He did not even serve in the wars he could of when he was young and not president of anything.

lol @ Hermann. He finished his post and wrote: "respond." Made me laugh a bit.

Okay, well I think it is pretty cool of him to do that. As you said he is close in line to the thrown, but did his civic duty just like everyone else had to. Those, to me, are characteristics of a good leader.

Like Devoid said, you don't see Bush over there. Granted he is probably on the top 10 list in other countries to be harmed.

i thought it was sad, the guy loved protecting my country, i mean no offense to phillip or anyone else but in my lifetime he's the first royal family member to defend for england's rights
and i found that every newspaper keeping it a secret quite a nice touch to this, cause in honesty i thought our newspapers were money grabbing paper writers, but it was nice for them to keep it hidden, till a foreigner newspaper did THE dumbest thing EVER!

I think its sad how it was leaked, so not he has to come back home. The media just sucks sometimes. I think it is awesome that he was out there, but I think he probably did it just to get out of England more than anything.

There's a little bit about the situation that irks me. I was listening to NPR and they had some interviews in the field with the prince. He was talking about how much he enjoyed actually getting to be a "normal person."
I think there's something to that - getting out from underneath the day to day monotony that can be royal life, but I just wonder how much action he actually saw if he was really enjoying himself.
Most people in combat are there under orders, and while their military service is voluntary, I'm sure there are places they'd rather be. I just wonder how it makes the other troops there feel knowing that he's enjoying himself over there - almost like it's playtime or something. It kind of reminds me of Winston Churchill's autobiography...

Hmmm...I didn't know that. That certainly does make it less honorable. But as we've concluded human's are selfish beings. What can ya do?

That's true. And I'm certainly not trying to take away from what he's doing - and maybe the soldiers there were really excited and motivated to have him there. I've never seen war, and never want to so I have no idea how the average soldier feels about this. It was just my first impression. It is nice to see in modern times - it's been awhile since leaders have been expected to be good fighters or have even come onto the battlefield.

That is also very true. I would more likely respect a leader that was able to handle himself in diverse situations. He comes from good stock. I really like Princess Diana.

I don't think it is all that odd that he is enjoying it. He gets to live life away from the media and royal pressures for a while. It isn't necessarily that he likes to be there, he just likes it more than being in England.

I'd feel sorry for him, but the guys a real "Piece of work". And for those of you misinformed Harry is not the future King, William is, the chances of Harry ever becoming king is slim to none, and thank god, cause he's a drunken womanizing a-hole.
The Afghanistan thing was probably for good PR.

Oh, yeah. I am sure it was. Because, you know, when I want publicity I want to pretend to go fight in a active war zone wear regardless of the fact if I am fighting or not I could get killed for being white, or the wrong place at the wrong time.

Sure.

I think if Prince Harry wanted to go to Afganistan, i think they should have left him there, cause if he died it would have been his fault
