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."

So TMZ has decided to be an outlet for Taliban propaganda? Really makes you wonder about Harvey's decision making abilities.

Prince Harry is not in danger, he is not fighting. He's holed up somewhere nice. Don't let them fool you.

Poor Harry.. he's daymed if he does, and daymed if he doesn't. While I do agree that in a way, he puts others at a greater risk with him serving with them... if he DIDN'T serve, everyone would be biotching that the royals just sit on their butts and don't earn their money or do anything for the country.. Give the guy a break. Every male Royal ALWAYS serves his country in the armed services in one respect or another. Usually helos or something. Even the Queen was a mechanic in WWII and bought the material for her wedding dress with war rations. People can't have it both ways. Stop complaining when they DO their jobs AND serve their country... and earn their own money!

Is this the same Taliban that slept through Bin Laden's death in his own home?

Thank God he is not American. Joe Biden would be telling them his schedule. In the interest of complete transparency you understand. http://gayconservatists.webnode.com/

Clearly, they are not happy with your naked romps. You got so flambouyant with your wealth and freedom, that you are now going to lose it. When they set upon a target, they don't ever withdraw it. You are marked. God help you.

He's not that special. So he comes with a pedigree. Big deal. He should face the same risks any other soldier faces. BTW: This war isn't 'winnable.' It's nothing more than a form of population control. No one is going to fix what ails those people. The Taliban are sand fleas. The U.S. needs to pull out. Let's put Obama on the front lines. Is Kenya helping in this crazy action? He could be the first to represent his home country if not!

What a load of rubbish. This clown will be no where near the action. The royal family are so full of their own importance. Anyway, I'd love to see the Taliban give this little ponce a real smack in the mouth with a good old fashion assss whoopen!!
