Prince Harry Not Going To Iraq

Apparently, the sight of one of the royals actually acting the part for a change was just too much for the Ministry of Defence.

Prince Harry will not be deployed to Iraq due to concern about the number of "specific threats" made against his life, the head of the British Army announced this afternoon.

The 22-year-old prince, who is third in line to the throne, had been due to fly out to join the rest of his Blues and Royals squadron in the south of the country.

But his deployment has now been cancelled, although the Ministry of Defence has not ruled out sending him to the region in the future.

Sir Richard Dannatt, the head of the British Army, said in a statement that the risk to the prince and his men was "unacceptable".

"There have been a number of specific threats some reported and some not reported - which relate directly to Prince Harry as an individual," he said.

"These threats expose not only him but also those around him to a degree of risk that I now deem unacceptable."

Well, thank God for that. It would be a damn shame if a prominent British figure was caught in a display of American-style heroism or some shit. He might have even shot someone.

He should have told them that he wanted to go to Iraq to campaign against landmines like Diana; they'd have had him over there in a second.

Oh well. Maybe we can sign him up for the Marines.
