British army reconsiders sending Prince Harry to Iraq by Robin Millard

LONDON (AFP) - Britain's army chiefs are reviewing plans to send Prince
Harry to Iraq amid fears he could be targeted, officials said Thursday, but
friends downplayed warnings he may quit if prevented from going.

The Ministry of Defence said the 22-year-old's imminent deployment was under
"constant consideration," after a newspaper report said army bosses were
reviewing the decision amid a spike in British deaths in Iraq.

The Sun newspaper said the second lieutenant could be stopped from being
sent to southern Iraq, because insurgents might try to kidnap or kill him,
putting fellow troops in extra danger.

Such a decision would likely infuriate the prince, third-in-line to the
British throne, who has said there would be "no way" he would train to
become an officer then sit around while his soldiers fought.'

Once I had a love, and it was a gas
Soon turned out, to be a pain in the ass
Seemed like the real thing, only to find much of mistrust
Love's gone behind
