Prince Harry's deployment on hold

From the page: "Army chiefs fear that a fatal attack on two British soldiers in Iraq last week was a dry run for an attempt on Prince Harry's life, The Times has learnt.

The attack was made on a type of vehicle that the Prince will use, and took place in a part of the country where he is due to be deployed as early as next month. The two died when their Scimitar reconnaissance vehicle was hit by a roadside bomb, the first time that British soldiers had been killed in a Scimitar as a result of enemy action."

Well Harry, if it were up to me, you wouldn't go. You have no combat experience. You're a high value target so your presence in the area of operations will actually draw additional enemy forces that will target you and your men. I'm sorry, I understand why you want to go, but the risk is not worth the reward.
