    I think this is the end of Britain's adventure in Iraq.

    I can understand the Military top brass's decision - they had little alternative. However, other British soldiers will now say - if they can't protect Prince Harry, what chance do I stand.

    This may be a shrewd move by Dannatt, who fell out with Blair a few months ago - saying at the time on live TV that the troops in Iraq are doing more harm than good and really oughta come home.

    Now there is a new Prime Minister, and a new opportunity.

    Bush had no problems negoitating with terrorists - witness the US removal of the millitary bases from Saudi Arabia as Al Queda demanded.

    Have you ever considered they were never going to send him and the whole thing was a game to get the opposition to show their hand?

    I can't understand the fuss that is being made in the media to be honest. It is pretty clear that if he goes over there every bugger in the country is going to try and kill him and as a result the army have decided to keep him at home.

    He himself wants to go over there, but lets look at it from a logistical point of view, do you put him there knowing you are going to have more casualties trying to defend him, loose more resources like tanks and jeeps as they are blown to buggery in an attempt to get at him or take the easy option and park him at home.

    The problem is not so much the fact he is royal, but the fact he is famous and comes under intense media scrutiny, this has instantly made him a high profile target that would be great to kill because if you do you will get a huge amount of media coverage, and lets face it the people fighting us in Iraq want exactly that. I personally think Prince Harry was rather stupid and blinkered beliveing that they would ever let him go out into a war zone, he is too big a risk to everyone and everything around him.

    The MOD knows that if Harry goes to Iraq every British tank in Basra will be blown to hell and back.
    I've been following the news of this, and some parents of serving soldiers moan that Harry is getting off lightly because he is privileged.

    However, serving soldiers themselves say they agreed with him not going, because they would not want to be posted anywhere near him.
