Over here in the UK the press are busy misrepresenting what he said and then attacking that straw-man. He said he was good at video games and that this translated into a skill with the Apache weapons systems. This is actually quite uncontroversial. For some time it has been widely discussed in the Royal Air Force that the next generation of pilots will be better skilled because of their computer game experience as teenagers. When subsequently asked if he had killed he said yes. Which is reassuring because as both a British tax payer and a soldier I would like my AAC Apaches to kill. However, because the press hate him (mainly because we all like him) they then reported that Harry said killing people is like playing xbox.

People criticize the Royal Family for being over-privileged, but they've done more in defense of their own country than any of the talking heads, politicians, or the current POTUS who all think that military service is beneath them have done for ours. Prince Harry is more in touch with the average person than a leftist senator from Massachusetts or any of our other champagne socialists.

Unfortunately, the US and the UK are on the same 'crazy train' Buckle up. ;)

NBC's The Today Show isn't too happy with Prince Harry's recents comment about killing Taliban fighters. Yesterday guests on the program criticized the Prince for "antagonizing" the Taliban and for playing video games before talking about "oh my God we killed people."

"I thought he jumped the shark when he was shown playing video games and then it was, 'Oh my God, we killed people.'" Co-host Matt Lauer sparked the exchange by wondering: "He talks about his missions, the missions he went on where he was fired upon by the Taliban and returned fire, killing some members...
