Prince Harry Kills Taliban Fighters

Prince Harry kills Taliban fighter.

In an interview with The Telegraph, Prince Harry admitted of killing Taliban fighters after his 20-week duty in Afghanistan has officially ended. The 28-year old Prince, third in line to throne, is expected to arrive home on Wednesday.

The prince manned the Apache helicopter pilot’s weapons system, and he had “his finger on the trigger of its rockets, Hellfire missiles and 30mm cannon, flying scores of missions to destroy Taliban targets and protect British servicemen on the ground.”

Captain Wales, as he is known, joining 662 Squadron, 3 Regiment Army Air Corps, hinted that his active involvement in the Afghan front enabled him to kill enemy fighters, saying: “Yeah, so lots of people have. The squadron’s been out here. Everyone’s fired a certain amount.

“Take a life to save a life, that’s what we revolve around, I suppose. If there’s people trying to do bad stuff to our guys, then we’ll take them out of the game, I suppose,” he said.

This was the second time that Prince Harry was assigned in Afghanistan. The first instance was when he was with the Household Cavalry, although that trip had to be cut short because “a media blackout was broken”.

He also mentioned his dislike of being stationed at Camp Bastion and said he’d rather be on foot patrols instead of flying the Apache.

It’s plain to see that the Prince was just doing his job. “It’s not the reason I decided to do this job,” he said. “The reason to do this job was to get back out here and carry on with a job.”

 “When you fire, you still get the cordite smell, which is bizarre. The whole floor vibrates and when you fire a missile the whole aircraft shudders a little bit.

“It’s not like any normal helicopter, as you can imagine.”

The Prince made it clear that he will give top priority on his military duties, more than his role as a royal.

 “I am the Queen’s grandson and all that good stuff and I love representing her, but to be honest with you and as far as I see it, and as far as William sees it as well, our service towards our country in the military in whichever shape or form it takes will always come first.

“I will always be here for my grandmother and who needs to send me abroad for whatever reason. I don’t really have any plans. But this was my main plan, to get back out to Afghanistan,” he said.

The Truth about “Princess Qajar,” the Royal Lady with the Mustache

A Persian princess viral news websites baptized as Princess Qajar has lately become a stuff of legends. She was presented as a royal lady with a facial hair that made her so attracted that 13 men claimed their own lives because she couldn’t love them. The truth is, there was no “Princess Qajar,” only the Qajar dynasty  that ruled over Persia for more than a century.

The only fact about this historical meme is that at that time, it was fashionable for Persian women to wear mustache. “Many Persian-language sources, as well as photographs, from the nineteenth century confirm that Qajar women sported a thin mustache, or more accurately a soft down, as a sign of beauty,” explained Dr. Afsaneh Najmabadi.
The memes and fake stories circulating online refer not to a single princess, but actually to two female dynasts: Princess Fatemah Khanum"'Esmat al-Dowleh" and her half-sister, Princess Zahra Khanom Tadj es-Saltaneh. Their father, Naser al-Din Shah Qajar, ruled Persia from 1…

King Edward VIII’s Financial Settlement: How Much Money Did He Get After The Abdication?

King Edward VIII leaped into financial uncertainty the moment he signed the Instrument of Abdication on December 10, 1936. That same day, Edward, now known as Duke of Windsor, entered into an agreement with his younger brother and successor, King George VI, that secured him £25,000 annually for the rest of his life. However, the King later renounced this agreement and instead offered him a smaller amount which would cease upon the King's death. The condition is that Edward should never step into British soil unless invited by government.
