Prince Harry was secretly deployed to Afghanistan in a move that was subject to a media blackout... Until some foreign media corporation leaked it. So now he's being flown home.

There were concerns a while back that they couldn't deploy him to the front line because being third in line to the throne of the United Kingdom he'd be a huge target out there, which would endanger the lives of those around him.

Tsk. Bloody media...

There are times that the media needs to be the bloody hell quiet, and this is one of those times. The people who he serves with are happy to see him serving. It gives them that fuzzy feel that even he's there and that he's willing to risk his life with them. But it's like with Gerado Rivera... and when Iraq was just starting, when he drew up attack plans on live television.

i personally think the media should shut up 90% of the time, but they produce this crap because people watch it.

The media is a necessary evil in a democracy. However, the American media is a pile of sith.
