Prince Harry doesn't get to go to the dance

Much is being made in the British media about the defense ministry's decision not to send Prince Harry to Iraq. Personally, I think sending him was a bad idea, anyway. Harry, like any other member of the royal family, is a national symbol.

Sending him into Iraq would have been similar to a Pennsylvania National Guard unit deploying to Iraq with the Liberty Bell. Think the jihadis wouldn't want some of that just for the propaganda victory?
