There are plenty who question the long-term PR wisdom of sending Prince Harry off to Afghanistan to kill, and now a powerful Afghan warlord has accused Prince Harry of being a 'jackal' who is killing innocents in Afghanistan.
In an interview with The Daily Telegraph Gulbuddin Hekmatyar, who has been designated a global terrorist by the United States, said, "The British Prince comes to Afghanistan to kill innocent Afghans while he is drunk. He wants to hunt down Mujaheddin with his helicopter rockets without any shame.
"But he does not understand this simple fact that the hunting of Afghan lions and eagles is not that easy. Jackals cannot hunt lions."
Speaking about a recent attack on the base where Prince Harry was located he said: "During the Mujaheddin attack on the American base the Prince saw that he was the one about to be hunted and was searching for a hole in which to hide himself."
And he added: "It seems that some British authorities still dream about the times of the eighteenth and nineteenth century and they want their ambassador to be treated like a viceroy and their prince to go out in uniform to hunt for human beings and play the satanic role that they used to play in the past."
The warlord's comments came in an interview with the Daily Telegraph from a mountain base, reported to be close to the Afghan/Pakistan border.
