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."

You guys are morons if u believe this crap. This is an attempt to being Harry back with out making him look like he doesn't want to be there. The media makes stuff up about the Taliban all the time. There is a series of videos on YouTube where they address all the lies about them. There is also a video of the spokesperson addressing university students (in the US) about the lies. Our media is one big joke.

Must be rough to be the spare of the "heir and the spare". Prince William has to act respectful since he will be king but I like Harry the bad boy myself lol

Sounds like propaganda and self hype by his publicity people to divert the attention away from his buffoonery.

The information about his military deployment should've never been released to the public.

He's going to die the same way Diana did... because they caused a 'scandal' for the 'Royal' family... his death will play out much like Diana's... organized by the Royal Family, but blamed on someone else, and who better than the Taliban? Looks legit, right?

I don't think this story is true. I'm sure they love to kill as many soldiers as possible, but I think, at last report, there are less than 50 Talaban left and I'm sure they have more pressing things on their minds - like US drones.

This is why I felt it was HIGHLY ignorant to publicize that Harry was going to Afghanistan for 4 months to pilot helicopters. Every soldier is in danger, yes, but why say anything about this high-profile person's mission when Harry is obviously someone they'd love to catch because of his family history.


It's just common sense to shut up about his tours of duty.
