I don't think I am alone in saying that in the past few days my respect for Prince Harry has increased somewhat. Admittedly I didn't think it was a good idea for him to be on the front line, but that said it was handled well and I think he has found some degree of purpose.
It is therefore somewhat unfortunate that some individuals thought that it was clever to mention publicly that he was over there. Those people should be ashamed of themselves because they not only put the Prince's life in danger, but also the lives of those soldiers serving alongside.
There is also a particular individual who should also feel ashamed, but seems to lack the meaning of the word in this context, and that is George Galloway for the appalling comments he has made.
One doesn't expect anything better from him, although it is a slap in the face to thousands of civilians, let alone soldiers. The Taliban are most certainly Britain's enemies because n 2001 we invaded Afghanistan because the Taliban government (who incidentally were not exactly the most friendly regime on the Planet), were sheltering Osama Bin Laden and other Al Queda operatives and were refusing to hand them over. It could be argued therefore that Galloway's comments were therefore insulting to those who lost loved ones in the 9/11 attacks, as well as the British soldiers fighting in Afghanistan, as well as being disloyal to the country of which he is a citizen.
