Prince Harry Admitted Killing Taliban Rebels During Afghanistan Duty [PHOTOS]
Prince Harry confessed in an exclusive interview that he killed Taliban rebels during his 20-week duty in Afghanistan. The 28-year-old Apache pilot courageously risked his life on the frontline in order to protect the ground troops and rescue his wounded comrades during the battle.
When Prince Harry was questioned if he had killed rebels, the Royal Prince responded: "Yeah, so lots of people have. Everyone's fired a certain amount. Take a life to save a life. That's what we revolve around, I suppose. If there are people trying to do bad stuff to our guys, then we'll take them out of the game."
Prince Harry opened up about the experiences he encountered while the missions are carried out.
"Every time you run to the aircraft you get that adrenaline rush. Once you're in you've got to try to slow yourself down because otherwise if the adrenaline's pumping too much and everything happens too quickly, then you're going to miss something," Prince Harry revealed.
The young Prince controls the aircraft weapons including Hellfire missiles and rockets. He uses a monocle-style gun sight device to aim at the enemy. The system will detect where Prince Harry is looking. Then, it will adjust the surveillance and weapons sensors within the aircraft to trail on his vision.
According to Prince Harry, they often leave the base to accomplish a mission without any given details.
"Well, you never really know until you get in the aircraft. It all happens very quickly. Once you're there, who knows what the situation's going to be like," Prince Harry shared.
Despite the success of killing rebels on his Afghanistan mission, Prince Harry was still faced with controversy. "The British Prince comes to Afghanistan to kill innocent Afghans while he is drunk," Gulbuddin Hekmatyar, senior founder and rebel leader of the Hizb-i-Islamia Party, claimed.
The British officials have immediately dismissed the rebel's claim. "It is nothing more than a see-through attempt to undermine the very real progress being made in Afghanistan by UK troops and their Afghan partners. The idea that highly skilled and professional Apache pilots operate drunk is patently ridiculous and completely made up," military sources stated.
Prince Harry is scheduled to arrive home on Wednesday. As for his plans after his mission, Prince Harry is still undetermined.
"I'll always be here for my grandmother and whoever needs to send me abroad for whatever reason. I don't really have any plans. As to how long I'm going to spend in the Army, who knows? I will continue to bounce between my Army job and the other job," Prince Harry stated.
