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."

Even if this may be a false story, Harry's tours should not be public until he returns home.

This makes no sense at all. He is related to Muhammed and shouldn't be targeted by the taliban, this is why the queen doesn't need extra security. This is commonly know throughout the islamic world.

For those who are acting like he is someone special and the British military should do this and do that clearly you know nothing about military. He is no different, no better, no nothing then anyone else in the British military. He is there to do his duty, his job, just like everyone else. Do you not think they hadn't already considered that the Taliban would make him a priority to kill? Yet he is still there doing his job. I hope nothing bad happens to him, but I also wish the same for every other member of every armed force that is there. But if it happens it happens. That's how it works.

I was wondering why his tour was announced. The last time Harry was in Afghanistan, it was kept secret, and when the press found out and reported the news, Harry was brought home quickly.

Um, yeah. Pretty sure Afghanistan and Pakistan would each be on the receiving end of a nuke for that one.

Duh! Why would the newscasters broadcast the exact group Harry was assigned to? Obviously, it would give a heads up to the enemy to try to take him out. I don't know what the Queen is trying to prove but if she wants him to have front line combat, she should at least keep all the details secret.

Ok, so unlike regular soldiers who get shot at every day by the taliban, I guess Prince Harry just has to come home because as we know he is special. You know he has bodyguards out there with him and his life is never in any danger.
If any of you personally know a soldier, do they get as much time off as Harry does? He is off partying all the time.
