“It was Big H all the way…”
Slightly late (and arguably), Prince Harry answered the Papal call to defend Christendom by killing a major Taliban leader in Afghanistan as reported by The Sun (of London, UK), Dec. 23, 2012 .
In his Letter of Instruction to the Crusaders issued in December of 1095, Pope Urban II gave the clarion call “to all the faithful, both princes and subjects…” to take up a Holy Crusade against the armies that sought to destroy Christendom.
A millennium later, give or take a century, His Royal Highness Prince Henry Charles Albert David of Wales, or as he’s correctly known within the ranks of the British Army as Captain Wales, has followed in the footsteps of European Royalty past.
Thusly demonstrating that Warrior Princes are not relegated to dusty history books nor just the stuff of ancient fables.
Big H In The Attack Mode…
Informally known to his comrades-in-arms, the 28-year-old British Army Captain goes by the nom de guerre, “Big H.”
While Captain Wales was on patrol co-piloting his Apache helicopter gunship, an unidentified Ministry of Defence (MoD) source stated:
“We were on patrol and the Apache helicopters were called in.
We heard this posh voice come over the radio and knew it was Big H.
They were tracking a Taliban leader — he was commander level. “
Isn’t It Ironic…?
The anonymous source added the terrorist leader was dispatched to the hereafter by an aptly named weapon:
“The Apache then let off some Hellfire missiles and its 30mm cannon and ‘boom’.
It was Big H all the way.”
So He’s Got That Goin’ For Him, Which Is Nice…
If young Captain Wales should ever convert to Catholicism, he’ll always have the solace of knowing Pope Urban has granted him absolution of all sin, in all perpetuity.
Or as His Holiness wrote back in the day:
“All who die by the way, whether by land or by sea, or in battle against the pagans, shall have immediate remission of sins.
This I grant them through the power of God with which I am invested.”
Or in a round-about-way, as the Dalai Lama blessed Carl Spackler with: (See video, upper left.)
“Gunga galunga, gunga gunga lagunga.”
