Prince Harry & Afghanistan?, Prince Harry could return to serve on the front in Afghanistan, the Guardian reported. Harry, recently qualified to fly Apache helicopters, has reportedly been allowed to return, although the Ministry of Defence would not comment. “Harry is an army pilot and deploy wherever the Army chooses to send. His career in 2012 after its implementation is a matter for the chain of command of the army,” The Guardian quoted Clarence House said.
Harry served in Afghanistan in 2007 and 2008 until the news of his service was published in the journal of Australia and New Idea in January 2008. He was pulled from Afghanistan for fear that their presence would lead to an increase in the attack on his fellow soldiers.
In an interview earlier this year, the prince 26 years old said he would return to the front line.
“I hope seriously, and from the military point of view I seriously hope so,” he said. “You know the money has been spent for training – God knows how much money has been spent on us from their point of view, if I do not, then I’m taking some other space.”
The Sun UK reported that defense chiefs and Queen have given approval for the return of Harry to Afghanistan.
March asked what his goal was after he scored an Apache pilot, Harry said: “My goal is to serve my country like everyone else in the British forces.”
According to The Telegraph, the Taliban had a warning for the prince, if he were to be captured on their upcoming tour Afghanistan: It will be “destroyed.”
Zabiullah Mujahid, a Taliban spokesman, reportedly told the Daily Telegraph: “Our plan is the same plan with all the Muslim mujahideen we will attack these believers who have invaded and occupied our country.
“The British are the second largest number of troops in Afghanistan so are our enemies. We treat them all the same.”
Prince Harry patrols through the deserted city GARMIS, close to FOB Delhi (forward operating base), in southern Helmand province of Afghanistan January 2, 2008. Prince Harry, third in line to the throne, returned home from Afghanistan on Saturday after news leaked on the Internet that he had been fighting the Taliban in secret for 10 weeks.
