The Warrior Prince!

So, Prince Harold is going to fight in the front line for his country. Does anyone think for one second that he will be in the slightest danger?

Yes. Possibly more so, because of his high profile he is a bigger target. ..Bingalu..

I am firmly placed in the 'don't give a monkeys' or a pigs' burp' camp.

I understand he will be patrolling the border with Iran. If Bush chucks a few bombs over there Harry could find himself in a new front line.

His troop is being sent to do border patrols - a lower risk than some tasks - but it still has a large risk especially if he gets followed by a posse of film crews an journalists.

i would think he has more to fear from Friendly fire than lead from the front.

Gandalf couldn't have put it better.

Unfortunately, by being a target himself he makes those around him targets as well. Officers stopped wearing highly visible badges of rank in combat situations some time ago, so for an enemy to try and get him would incur a penalty for others around him.

I have sympathy for anyone in a combat situation as it is very stressful. If you add to that an order to put yourself up as a `human shield` (which could happen in this case) for another, the stress can only rise.

You may be a Republican but you should also consider the effects of this sort of situation on those who have no choice but to obey.

Im with GANDALF on this also.
