Hey Chickenhawks!!!! Prince Harry is Calling you OUT

Hey!!!! Hey You!!! Hey there, Jonah "I'm such a wuss I'm going to hide behind my babies even as I pimp the Iraq War to you "little people"" Goldberg:

A prince, heir to a throne of a nation, has more balls than you do even on the golf course.

Prince Harry is going to Iraq.

To lead.

Now, this young man has done a lot of growing up since his mother passed. He's been definitely worrisome to his Grandmother these last few years. Especially with that Nazi costume episode. But we do have to excuse away some things - after all, his mother who could have educated him about everything from being graceful to the need to call out the inhumanity of warfare is dead. His father....well, until his father finally married his One True Love, Harry's father was probably a bit distracted.

Prince Harry is unquestioningly one of the most protected and physically secure young men on the face of the earth. If he was a Right-Wing American pillar of manhood he would no doubt be scurrying to hide behind education and baby deferments, bad skin; a pilonidal cyst or even just cushy and sporadic TANG duty to keep from serving in wartime. But here Harry is, *volunteering* for active Iraq duty on the grounds that as long as his countrymen are fighting and dying in Iraq (where they should not be in the first place, since it's an illegal war, but he's led a sheltered life so he may not know that) he has no call to avoid the same service merely because someday he might sit on the British throne:

There's no way I'm going to put myself through Sandhurst and then sit on my arse back home while my boys are out fighting for their country.

We really need to get him to school the "there is no party we don't love" Bush they can fulfill their destiny as daughters of the Commander in Chief and avoid being placed on a Chickenhawk list in their later years, like their dad and his buddies.
