Two US Marines were killed yesterday protecting a US-British base complex in Helmland Province of Afghanistan.
Prince Harry is currently assigned to the British portion of the base and serves as a helicopter pilot. His presence at the base was revealed last week.
Many believe that Prince Harry was the target of the attack.
The Taliban reportedly issued a statement proclaiming Harry as a “high-value target.”
Tory MP Colonel Bob Stewart, a former commander of British troops in Bosnia, said he did not think the Prince should be pulled out of Afghanistan because of the Taliban. “To hell with them,” he said. “Harry wants to go there and our soldiers want him there. He should stay.”
Did the two US Marines die to protect Prince Harry? If this was, in fact, one of the reasons for the attack, then the undeniable answer is yes.
