You know...I'm having serious doubts about Britian's military force. I mean, those 15 soldiers just throw up their hands and surrender without putting up a fight, and now they allow threats to determine who they put in the field.
What's next? They going to withdraw completely if the terrorists threaten to kill the Queen if they don't leave immediately?
I mean they had a perfect opportunity to exploit the fact that Harry was going there, leave the info, capture of kill any who show up to kill Harry...but no, they were cowered into submission.
With all due respect.......
It would take more resorces to protect the young man, than would be justified. All he would be able to get was a glorified admin position in some camp somewhere. There is no way in hell they would put him in a combat situation where he could be captured, used for some kind of political spectical to embarrass the royal famliy, and ultimately killed.
Its not like he's some jetfighter jockey, safely living onboard an aircraft carrier, flying bombing missions or whatever. He would be on the ground, much more in harms way then his uncle was during the Falklands.
I can see where the Brits are comming from with this.
