Prince Harry is being targeted for death in Afghanistan ... so says a rep for the Taliban (yes, they have a rep).

Harry -- a helicopter pilot in the British military -- is currently on a 4 month tour in Afghanistan ... where he is reportedly fighting Taliban insurgents on the front lines.

Obviously, his presence has pissed off the Taliban ... and now terrorist spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid tells Reuters the group has made it a top priority to kill or kidnap the Prince.

"We are using all our strength to get rid of him, either by killing or kidnapping," Mujahid said during a phone interview either conducted in a cave ... or a suburb in Pakistan.

During the interview, Mujahid referred to the Taliban plans as the "Harry Operations" ... added, "We have informed our commanders in Helmand to do whatever they can to eliminate him."

Holy sh*t. That's scary as fu*k. (Yes, I curse a lot lol.) I wonder if the British Military will take Harry out for his own safety. He can't catch a break can he? I hope he'll be safe.

And this is exactly why I said before that the Royal military had no business announcing he was going to Afghanistan. Great operational secuirty there...

It's mind boggling that he's there anyway. He puts everyone else around him in even more danger.

And just how is your picture of the Taliban spokesperson funny?

Harvey, how about hiring some people mature enough to realize this isn't a funny situation?

Well, I guess that's one way to make the Queen happy... Are the British just STUPID, or what? Why would you *EVER* send him to a war zone, whether he wants to go or not? OF COURSE he's going to be a target, so they ANNOUNCE that he's going! STUPID, STUPID, STUPID.

I'm sure that would get someone 75 virgins when they go to wherever they think you go and actually enjoy being responsible for 75 women. Can you even imagine the demands and how bad things would get with at least half of them had PMS?

the taliban vows to kill or kidnap anyone who's not part of their 'plan'.. if you're going to take him out because of this threat, then you need to take out EVERY soldier. his life isn't anymore valuable than anyone elses.
