Blog Miscellany I.

This is coolbert:

Here is an article by the MSNBC military commentator on Prince Harry and the decision not to send the Prince to Iraq.

Repeats what has been said before. Why is the Prince even in the military to begin with then?

"Should Prince Harry even be in the army?"

"Other than tradition, keeping Harry in the British Army makes little sense."

"By Lt. Col. Rick Francona
Military analyst

"The British military is small, considered too small by some to meet Britain’s international commitments. Therefore, the British forces must be used effectively. Having an officer that cannot deploy to certain areas complicates planning for commanders. He trains with his unit, but cannot serve with them when needed."

"Inside the British forces, he will be regarded as someone who wants to play soldier, but can’t be a soldier."
