Cojones of the large kind

Any regular reader here knows I'm for a troop withdraw, including the UK, but as long as there is fighting there...
Prince Harry, third in line to the British throne, is getting his wish to serve in Iraq. The Ministry of Defense ended speculation that had been swirling for about a week by announcing Thursday the 22-year-old prince will be sent to Iraq with his Blues and Royals regiment in May or June. Harry, a second lieutenant, will assume a troop commander's role.

Obviously Prince Harry could have avoided being sent to Iraq. He would have taken a lot of flak from the press and the public, but he could have done it.

The difference between the prince and the king (Bush) is the prince has balls. Bush proved he has none.
Pointing to Kerry's war record by implication highlights the absence of his contemporary George W. Bush, who, on his own admission, had joined the Texas Air National Guard to avoid the war.
