Translation" Sorry chaps, Iraq's a bit too dangerous to send our Prince but you go on and do your duty to England, we're right behind you.
Military translation: "The guy's a liability with huge target circles painted fore & aft. We'd spend more time protecting Prince Harry than doing our jobs. None of the troops would be stupid fearless enough to go out on patrol with him knowing that he'd be the region's biggest IED & RPG magnet. Everyone here would rather go quail hunting with Dick Cheney."
Inspiration: "Hey, do we have anyone on liaison duty with the American War Czar?"
