Prince Harry will not be sent for military duty in Iraq because of the excessive risks this would cause for him and his comrades, the head of the army said today.
“I have decided that Prince Harry will not deploy as a troop leader with his squadron,” General Sir Richard Dannatt told reporters.
Sir Richard said he had travelled to Iraq in the past week and learned of “a number of specific threats - some reported and some not reported - which relate directly to Prince Harry as an individual”.
He continued: “These threats expose not only him, but also those around him, to a degree of risk that I now deem unacceptable.
“Now that I have decided that he will not be deploying with his troop, the risks faced by his battle group are no different to those faced by any other battle group or other of our servicemen in Iraq.” (Source)
I stopped reading CNN daily because it depresses me and I don't particularly enjoy being depressed. Simple as that. So I guess I'll have to accept getting my world news from a celeblog.
Very glad my bad feeling won't be allowed to come true.
