    Surely got body guards around and surely got company strength of SAS to protect him

    Then he will command from his bunker and only survey the area once everything is under control.

    Anway if anyone reads about English history, his family has German blood and he can trace his roots to King George of Hanover.

    according to the article..

    While in Iraq, the prince will carry out "a normal troop commander's role", the statement said.

    This will involve "leading a troop of 12 men in four Scimitar armoured reconnaissance vehicles, each with a crew of three" from the regiment's "A squadron", the statement added.

    "The decision to deploy him has been a military one, made by Chief of General Staff, Gen Sir Richard Dannatt, in conjunction with Cornet Wales' commanding officer," it said.

    "The Royal household has been consulted throughout."
    then again..

    Further details of exactly where Harry would serve, or his specific role, would not be released because such a move would be "potentially dangerous", the statement added.

    I'm impress that at least he dare to go to Iraq. Much much better than the foreign politicians who bicker about minute matters.

    What trouble? I am saying foreign... Is it wrong to read newspaper and have some kind of personal analysis or opinion? I find this terribly amusing.

    whatever it is, going to the front line in a war zone is no joke. seriously.

    Prince Harry will be going as an answer to the call of duty, let's respect him for not shirking away in the name of being a member of the royalty.

    His family also served in the military before too and some like him, in combat situations. Ask our white horses go, balls drop, stallion become mare!
