Taliban: Prince Harry has 'Mental Problems' for Comparing Video Games to War

January 23, 2013 -

The Taliban apparently doesn't like England's Prince Harry. Big shock there, right? But the group accused of various attacks against U.S. and NATO forces in Afghanistan and other activities in Pakistan says that Prince Harry has a mental illness. Prince Harry returned from a four-month deployment in Afghanistan Monday, and has been conducting a series of interviews with the British press.

In a recent interview, England's royal son said that firing his Apache attack helicopter's weapons system in Afghanistan was "a joy for me because I’m one of those people that loves playing PlayStation and Xbox, so with my thumbs I like to think I’m probably quite useful -- if you ask the guys I thrash them at FIFA the whole time."

The Taliban didn't enjoy Harry's comments too much (likely because he was firing on some forces related to the group).

"There are 49 countries with their powerful military failing in the fight against the mujahideen, and now this prince comes and compares this war with his games, PlayStation or whatever he calls it," a Taliban spokesman said. "We don't take his comments very seriously, as we have all seen and heard that many foreign soldiers, occupiers who come to Afghanistan, develop some kind of mental problems on their way out."

I am SURE that Prince Harry is DEEPLY HURT that the Taliban thinks he's a crazy person.

If the Taliban thinks you have issues, it might be time to pay attention.

Yes, because people who believe it's just to murder school girls are the epitome of sanity.

Er boil it down , using vehicles,drones,ect is kinda like palying a video game. But beyond slight appearance is where the comparison ends.

You know I actually agree with the Talibans in this one (God, I can't believe actually wrote that) he has to pretty messed up to compare killing people (yes, even Talibans) with playing a video games.

Re: Taliban: Prince Harry has 'Mental Problems' for ...

He was comparing the INTERFACE with playing a video game, not the act of actually killing people.

A lot of the press, in the usual rush to scrapegoat video games, missed that part of his comment.

If that is so then please disregard my first post.
