Taliban says Prince Harry has ‘mental problems’


Taliban leaders are speaking out in response to Prince Harry’s return from war in Afghanistan and his assertion, during media interviews, that he killed Taliban members.

In particular, a Taliban spokesperson takes offence to the prince’s interview about manning the weapons in an Apache attack helicopter. Prince Harry compares it to playing a video game on PlayStation or Xbox.

Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid tells AFP: “This is a serious war, a historic war, resistance for us, for our people. But we don’t take his comments very seriously, as we have all seen and heard that many foreign soldiers, occupiers who come to Afghanistan, develop some kind of mental problems on their way out.”

The Taliban spokesman also said that they wanted to kill the prince while he was on duty, but he was mostly kept inside where it was safe.

Taliban says Prince Harry has ‘mental problems’

  1. Yes, Harry gave an astonishingly bad interview. He needs a keeper.

    • If Harry needs a “keeper” I hate to think about what you might need.

      Oy gevalt, yipers!

      • Sad but true, Chucky. This so called ‘prince of men’ is just a jerk kid who compares human beings to video game ciphers.

  2. It’s the people who fail to put a value on innocent lives, not the people who fight terrorists, who have mental problems. So it’s not surprising to hear stuff like this from the Taliban.

  3. Thirteen years and the most sophisticated technologically advanced armies the world has ever seen, armed with the best weapons available can’t overcome a guerrilla movement armed with makeshift weapons. Losers.

    • The “losers” are responsible for the sovereign land you occupy while spouting your crap from. Give thanks, you fool.

      • Truth sucks eh bob? Is this your first time losing a war?

  4. Guess What, if you don’t want this kind of coverage, don’t engage in that kind of warfare. It is really pathetic that people obviously support this conflict but lack the guts to back it and back what is necessary in a conflict.

    Don’t harass this kid about morals when you supported an unethical conflict that turns our soldiers into burn out monsters who drink themselves to sleep at night over the things they did abroad!

  5. He kept inside eh. He was a gunner on an Apache attack helicopter. Kind of hard to that from “inside”.

  6. “a long and happy picnic with nothing to do but sit in comfort and fire the Golden Rule into those people down there and imagine letters to write home to the admiring families, and pile glory upon glory.”
