Prince Harry recently killed Taliban insurgents during a tour in Afghanistan. The U.K. bad boy, who is an Apache attack helicopter co-pilot, talked about his role in the military fighting terrorism in the Middle East.
Citing a Jan. 21 Fox4KC report, Harry, known by his comrades as Captain Wales, did not let on to how many insurgents and terrorists he killed. However, he did share some insight to what his experience was like as he conducted missions in the southern Helmand province, a Taliban stronghold.
Prince Harry explained that at times, it was necessary to "take a life to save a life. That’s what we revolve around, I suppose."
Over the years, he noted that his role as a co-gunner changed, but the focus remained the same: rid the region of insurgents who are intent to do others harm through the use of terrorism.
"It used to be very much: front seat, you're firing the whole time.Now, yes we fire when we have to but essentially we’re more of a deterrent than anything else.
"Our job out here is to make sure the guys are safe on the ground and if that means shooting someone who is shooting at them, then we will do it," Prince Harry said on killing Taliban insurgents.
Harry came under fire when nude photos of him and another woman in a Las Vegas hotel appeared on the Internet.
In the wake of the controversy, media outlets honed in on how he was causing unwanted attention to the Royal Family.
In other words, Prince Harry prefers killing Taliban insurgents than getting in trouble and vilified by the media.
