Want to know where you can find Prince Harry on his war cheerleading US tour? Half of it is in Colorado. On Friday he’ll be at a UK Consul-General’s reception at the private Sanctuary Golf Course in Sedalia. Between Denver and Castle Rock, that’s the Castle Pines exit off of I-25. He’s staying overnight in Colorado Springs and leads the opening ceremonies of the Warrior Games at the US Olympic Training Center at Union and Uintah. He concludes his Colorado visit on Sunday at the Air Force Academy on Sunday before flying east for a polo match. How unseemly for American media to be fawning over a British royal, and what a slap in the face for Colorado Springs Tea Partiers, if they weren’t so uniformly stupid, to celebrate a monarch for which they claim so much credit for having expelled. Nathan Hale would have hung a second time and a third and forth presumably to have had the chance to show smug twits like Prince Harry the door. Harry pretends to continue the work of his mother Lady Diana, ridding the world of land mines, yet how much credit does he get when he advocates for their root cause, war?
A young prince who can do anything he wants, might go to war for some noble cause, if he hadn’t already exposed his and its deeply immoral character. After his Vegas binge, Prince Harry has returned to Afghanistan, his request this time to be a gunner on an Apache attack helicopter in the UK squad with the highest kill rate. It reminds me of the Hapsburg emperor who liked to shoot a peasant each day before breakfast –eventually his handlers had to enlist actors and load the old man’s rifle with blanks. We prefer to look back at old Franz Joseph as senile, but what is the truth about unrestricted inhuman whim?
A recent Taliban attack on Camp Bastion, Prince Harry’s base in the Helmund Province, may have been aimed at the bloodthirsty prince. Who can blame the Taliban for targeting a pro-war figurehead which the UK itself is exploiting? It could be however that Prince Harry’s secondary strategic benefit is not dissimilar to the American misuse of anti-Muhammad taunts to provoke insurgents. Drawing more Taliban fighters out of the shadows probably does not displease his royal trigger-happiness. Probably unarmed Austrians shared just as unfavorable odds as Afghans with AK-47s against Harry’s gunship. Let’s hope not.
Bessie’s little boy Charlie was attacked in his car. Or so the headline says. By English students who had just had their tuitions raised, and their grants lowered, while Bonnie Prince(ss) Charlie got his allowance raised. Unlike some, I believe his lifelong Major Crime spree outweighs the number of times he opened the back door in the back seat. That’s beside the point. Sheets, mon, his alleged sexual escapades are TAME compared to those of his family. But that’s what gets the most reporting.
But this attack wasn’t aimed at his arse.
Not specifically at least. More like his family being a large swarm of leeches.
Seems people are noticing, and taking action against, the fact that a small minority of people gets the great majority of the income. If ten percent are getting more money than the rest of the people combined, then it jolly well makes their argument that “Entitlements to the poor” are what’s causing the economy to implode downright laughable.
Let’s try the root word and the historic basis for “entitlement”. Titles like Duke, Count, Viscount, Baron, Earl, King, Prince, Sir, Knight, Madame, Dame.
Gordon Brown, who orchestrated the buildup to War in Iraq along with Cheney, his meat-puppet Bush and Bush’s Poodle then-PM of the United Kingdom Tony Blair is resigning as Prime Minister.
After not very casually admitting that he and Bush and Cheney and Blair knew beforehand that the “evidence” against Saddam Hussein was fabricated, it had nothing to do with “refusal to give up WMDs” or “Freedom” or “Nation Building”, neither in 2002 nor Now, rather, it was because Saddam Hussein represented a threat to the “New World Order” by refusing to bend the knee before their Mighty Empire.
Their regime is being replaced by a Tory-Liberal Democrat coalition led by the New Prime Minister, a Scots Tory named Cameron.
Prince Harry was ordered home to England after his cover was blown playing soldier in Afghanistan. Unmasked, it was decided the prince would be a bullet magnet for enemy fire. Here he is returning to a hero’s welcome, wearing a flak-jacket he might have done better to leave with the compatriots he left behind. Although -wot’s this- Harry Homebound appears to be accompanied by his compatriots! Were they all recalled too? Special forces assigned to bodyguard the prince would have been redeployed elsewhere. Was Heroic Harry soldiering with a royal retinue of school chums? Other spoiled upper-crust kids spoiling for hands-on Half Life blood?
Prince Harry, it’s been disclosed, has been taking his winter holiday in Afghanistan, fighting the resurgent “Terry Taliban” in the Helmand Province, and calling in air strikes like any ordinary [armed] bloke. The UK and international press were colluding to keep Harry’s deployment a secret, until the story broke on the internet. Now royal family handlers are deciding whether to bring the prince back lest he draw unwanted fire.
One of the frequent refrains in the US is that the powerful and well-to-do war promoters here always keep their own children out of the fighting, and that many of them are ‘chicken-hawks’, gung-ho avoiders of doing the actual fighting themselves. But in Britain, along comes Prince Super War Hawk, Killer of the Pagan, and he has duly registered and true authentic ‘royal blood’, too! He’s a True Warrior Prince from the Royalty… pure breed!
