I'm sorry, but bringing religion into this debate is a bad idea and is going vastly off-topic. I also think it's a red herring. But I for one haven't forgotten that you never responded to my last post or many other of the valid comments made.
I most certainly did. Your last argument was pretty much the same. Harry would be a big bullseye, so he and his men would be in danger.
Well that's war for you. War equals danger. Period. Either they have faith in the training they give their soldiers or they don't. And correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought the royals prided themselves on the members of the royal family serving in the military? I could be wrong there. If they do though, they have to know that any member of the royal family would automatically be a higher priority target...I'm not saying he isn't...just that he is NOT more important then the other soldiers. IMO he is no more worthy of life then others.
But back to the point. The royals HAD to know that if Harry, or William, entered the service they would automatically be a higher target...So like it has just be shown, they will not be allowed to serve, why even bother entering the service to begin with? Why enter when you know you won't be serving your country as a soldier?
Or is it all a show? A PR campaign.
