Prince Harry Likens War to Video Games, Accused of Having "Mental Problems" By Taliban

by at . Comments

Prince Harry has come under attack, verbally, by the Taliban after likening his four-month tour of duty in Afghanistan to playing PlayStation and Xbox.

In a recent interview, the redheaded royal confirmed that he killed Taliban fighters during his deployment, a necessary evil he had to come to grips with.

But then he raised eyebrows, adding, "I'm one of those people who like PlayStation and Xbox, so with my thumbs I would like to think that I am quite useful."

Not surprising, the Taliban quickly responded to that comment.

A Taliban spokesperson told Agence France-Presse:

"This is a serious war, a historic war, resistance for us, for our people. And now this prince comes and compares this war with his games, PlayStation or whatever he calls it."

"We don't take his comments very seriously, as we have all seen many foreign soldiers, occupiers who come to Afghanistan, develop some kind of mental problems on their way out."

The British press is also panning the prince, with one newspaper calling him a royal misfit, and another telling Harry to muzzle himself until he learns how to speak like royalty.

Aware of the backlash, Harry toned down his remarks Wednesday, saying "for the thousands of guys on operations at the moment, we’re continuing to try and do a job."

"An important job ... a job for ourselves, a job for the guys left and right of us, and from my point of view especially, for the guys on the ground.

"We are supporting the Afghan people, supporting the Afghan army, the way things are going is fantastic, the difference between 2006 and now is absolutely fantastic."
