Lets not make this a discussion about the actions of Imperial Britain.

I hope, for his sake, it's good.

What do you mean historically, the British.
I have no idea about the history of invading Afghanistan, and I don't think anyone my age, unless they have member of their family in the forces, know what happened in the past.
I could even say that they don't know why we are there now.


William can say he wants to fight, but he never will.

I feel like if I answer I might get into trouble from Zonk haha.

Historically, who didn't the British invade is the question. But, yeah, the British empire (and Russia) had previously invaded Afghanistan twice (and failed). Thus the argument as to why such a stupid war was started again in the land that can't be won.

However, I think (or hope) that if William did go he would be going to help build up the city and not go to shoot at people. It's highly unlikely he will, I agree.

Well he seems quite happy in his current position with the Search and Rescue and from reports is doing very well with it, so I don't know why he would still want to go to the front lines.

Because it is highly possible that his Search and Rescue unit could be posted there and he would want to go - SAR does both military and civilian rescues.

The Australians are there mainly to assist in rebuilding but they are often forced to shoot at people and kill them - any soldier in that place would be expected to do so and that, after all, is the main focus of the military - to kill people.

Princes William and Harry 'shocked' after Charles Stisted killed in helicopter crash | Mail Online

Quote:
Princes William and Harry were in deep shock last night after a friend of the Royal Family was killed in a helicopter crash.
Charlie Stisted, 47 was one of three men returning home from a hunting trip when their aircraft came down in County Down, Northern Ireland yesterday afternoon.

Mr Stisted was head of the Guards Polo Club - whose president is the Duke of Edinburgh - and was a close friend of the Prince of Wales and Princes William and Harry.

Actually, their main focus is to do the job they are assigned to do, whether it is a mission that is to wipe out insurgents, or fix Black Hawks like my son did whilst he was in Afghanistan. Of course they have been trained to kill should they have to use those skills, they have them.

Submariners seem to be an extra-brave group of men as far as I'm concerned.

Prince William reveals thinning hairline as he salutes sailors at HM Naval Base | Mail Online

Quote:
Prince William appeared red faced today as he removed his naval hat to reveal his increasingly thinning hair.

The 28-year-old Royal was saluting sailors at the HM Naval Base Clyde at Faslane in his naval uniform today where his ever-growing bald spot was on display.

The folically-challenged Prince, who oozed confidence in his dapper uniform as Commodore in Chief Submarines, hid his face in his hands as the cameras zoomed in on his sparse hairline.
Focus on the hair not the reason he's there.

William is indeed dashing in that uniform...

Too bad the Daily Mail turned the event into another balding showcase...

It's really shallow. We all know that he's losing his hair, but that's not the end of the world.

He does look handsome indeed! It's good to see him doing an official engagement in Scotland.
