This is the elite band of brothers, including Prince Harry, that were sent on a top secret mission to take on the Taliban in one of the most dangerous areas of Afghanistan. Last week, The Mail on Sunday revealed how one of the courageous soldiers pictured here, Warrant Officer Nathan Hunt, is believed to have tragically killed himself after struggling to cope with the effects of battlefield trauma. Since then two more members of Harry’s desert reconnaissance unit have come forward to say they too have suffered serious mental health issues as a direct result of their harrowing experiences in the war

Many of us mock him for being just a bit feckless, but until the idiots in the media outed him, he was serving with distinction in some of the most dangerous areas of Afghanistan.

IIRC, his unit was responsible for dealing with some of the worst terrorists over there too. Having the target put on him by the media made him a high value target. Sorry that his military career had to end.

But far as I am concerned, with the exception of his uncle Andrew who was in the Falklands conflict, he is the only one of the royals who has any real skin in the game.

#1 True but the Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Phillip, served with distinction in WWII. Phillip is a far more interesting man than most people know and his mother, Princess Alice, was one the most fascinating, in my book, of the 20th century.

I´m not as fond of Harry as I used to be. His snub of our President not being invited to the Royal wedding is a bit much to take. Is this what we are to expect from Harry and his bride?
Pity.

For Dems, it’s "our way or the highway"

We’re not all like that, Mr. Trump Democrats proved again on Friday that they “don’t play well with others,” so like typical spoiled brats they took their marbles and went home—and shut down the United States Government. Republicans refused to play their game of Immigration Chicken. For Democrats, it’s Our Way or the Highway. They want illegals in. They want Trump out. That’s the game. We shouldn’t pick on anyone in particular, but… Dick Durbin is the kid you hated in school. When the teacher asked who threw that spitball, young Durbin raised his arm and pointed at you. Now he’s grown up. He’s

Boris Johnson has launched a scathing attack on ´puerile and backward-looking´ Labour protesters trying to stop Donald Trump from visiting the UK. Writing in his Sunday Telegraph column, he argued it is in Britain´s national interest to welcome the leader of the world´s greatest and most powerful democracy. Johnson emphasised America is our greatest trading partner whose companies have invested £250billion and provided 1.2million jobs in the UK. He wrote: ´In 2016 the people of the United States not only elected Donald Trump; they bought £100 billion of British goods and services. That is more than twice what we sold to Germany –

A major winter storm has taken aim at the Rockies and Midwest, even as the East Coast is set to enjoy usually warm weather. Dubbed Winter Storm Jaxon by the Weather Channel, the storm had already dumped a foot of snow on Salt Lake City by noon on Saturday, and was expected to pummel Denver on Sunday. In Park City, 30 miles east of Salt Lake City, nine inches of snow fell on the Sundance Film Festival, where demonstrators huddled in the cold to protest President Donald Trump and hip hop performer Common was spotted hurling a snowball. It was not all fun

Military bosses may have deemed a £2 million hotline too costly – but they have no qualms about blowing £1.5 million on specialist consultants to advise them how to cut costs. MoD chiefs wrestling with a £20 billion budget black hole are now so concerned about balancing the books they plan to spend the much needed cash on expert advice about slashing the Armed Forces’ budget. According to plans for an MoD Efficiency Assurance Review, seen by The Mail on Sunday: ‘The MoD has undertaken significant assurance work internally over the summer of 2017 over its efficiency savings. However, the financial challenge

AN in-depth study into the impact of Brexit has revealed that even the most basic trade deal with the EU would see the £35billion divorce bill look "like a bargain". The UK struck a "bargain" when they agreed to the £35billion divorce bill with the EU - as the economic boom after Brexit will see "the bill pay for itself". According to top-level Bloomberg economists, even the most basic free trade deal with the EU would bring in over £40billion in just three years. Brexit Secretary David Davis has been pursuing a "Canada-plus-plus-plus" deal, which would see Britain replicate the Canada-style

ANOTHER nail in the coffin of Project Fear. It is becoming increasingly clear that the constituent countries of the EU as well as the bloc itself are exceedingly keen to strike a trade deal: the Prime Minister will today hail the most wide-ranging agreement in Anglo-French history. And significantly, while it does not specifically cover Brexit, it does mention a comprehensive agenda, covering everything from space exploration to the Bayeux Tapestry. This is proof, if it were needed, that Brexit is no bar to continuing good relations with our EU counterparts, to say nothing of the fact that we have a

A Republican senator disputed on Thursday that Donald Trump is a racist, following reports about the president describing majority-black countries as ´s***holes´ amid tense immigration negotiations. Trump is ´absolutely not´ driven by racial animus, South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham said on CNN, after flatly asking an interviewer to pose the question. And as the West Wing decided this week how flexible to be on immigration issues, he claimed, he got bad advice from the people around him. The ´s***hole´ snipe, which Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin claimed was directed at Haiti and African nations, shouldn´t be taken as evidence of racial prejudice, Graham explained. ´You

1988 Democratic presidential nominee Michael Dukakis ripped President Trump´s new tax law and offered optimism for Democrats ahead of the midterm elections. Dukakis, a former governor of the Bay State during the so-called economic "Massachusetts Miracle," said Republicans have lost their way when it comes to supporting fiscal responsibility. He questioned why they would champion a tax plan that may have costly ramifications for the national deficit. (Snip) "We just passed a tax bill, which I think is a piece of garbage," Dukakis, who lost his presidential bid to then-Vice President George Bush, said. "Look at these companies, though, that are

It´s no secret that Mitt Romney is, in all likelihood, going to run for a Senate seat in Utah. What´s less clear, however, is why the man who was the 2012 Republican presidential nominee and is now retired and occupying an elder-statesman role in a party torn into warring factions would want to serve as a junior senator. Once elected, Romney would find himself embroiled in day-to-day congressional fights and less free to voice his criticisms of the White House, while losing some of the deference he´s been shown by members of his own party.

Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI) questioned President Donald Trump’s new campaign ad saying Democrats “will be complicit in every murder committed by illegal immigrants” if they continued the shutdown. Ryan said, “They are certainly not helping us keep the government open. They are certainly not helping us get to a solution on immigration. When you shut down the government you stop negotiating on immigration reform. They’re complicity with not getting things done.” He added, “I’m not going to comment. I just saw that.

Question: Do you think Donald Trump spends more time thinking about Hillary Clinton than Hillary Clinton spends thinking about Donald Trump? Sure does seem like it. The other day, President Trump was discussing Russia at a press conference with the prime minister of Norway, when he suddenly announced that Clinton “was not for a strong military and Hillary, my opponent, was for windmills, and she was for other types of energy that don’t have the same capacities at this moment certainly.” Yeah, it didn’t make any sense.

Democrats called it the Trump shutdown. Republicans labeled it the Schumer shutdown. But in reality, it was the Dreamer shutdown. The recipe for the current congressional gridlock is complex, but at the top of the list of ingredients are the illegal immigrant Dreamers who pushed Democrats to launch the filibuster that sent the government careening into a partial shutdown. It’s a stunning display of political leverage for a group that, at most, numbers several million, can’t vote now, and even under the most generous proposals wouldn’t be able to cast ballots for another decade. Yet they have amassed an extraordinary amount of

Comic book readers are apparently not fans of progressive politics—a fact no more evident in Marvel’s decision to cancel every single one of its comics that has been nominated by the LGBTQ advocacy group, GLAAD. In December, the publisher announced its decision to cancel many of its comics, citing poor sales. LGBTQ, feminist, and social justice-themed comics involving stories that revolved around Black Lives Matter, illegal immigration, and LGBTQ issues were among those to end up on the chopping block.

Adam Schiff, reputedly a champion leaker from the House Intelligence Committee when it came to Russiagate material, suddenly thinks Ignorance is Bliss when it comes to the FISA warrant used to spy on the Trump campaign. Appearing on CNN, he tried to justify keep the 4 page memo that reportedly exposes the individuals who acted as part of a cabal to undermine the Trump campaign with help from NSA spying, and then pushed the “Russia collusion” conspiracy theory as part of the “insurance policy.” Americans are too ignorant, you see.

Investigators in both House and Senate were stunned late Friday when, receiving a batch of newly-released texts between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, they also received notice from the bureau that the FBI "failed to preserve" Strzok-Page messages from December 14, 2016 through May 17, 2017. Given the amount of texting that went on between Strzok and Page, who were having an extramarital affair, that probably meant thousands of missing documents. A number of critical events in the Trump-Russia affair occurred between December 2016 and May 2017, including: Conversations between Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn and Russian ambassador Sergey
