Prince Harry checks his rear-view mirror for an exit strategy.
He has been deployed at one of the most significant points in the Iraq War. A symbolic figurehead in a symbolic empire, Prince Harry (who, in recent years, has adopted a Shakespearean alias, “Prince Hal”) has proudly volunteered to lead his people neither to victory nor defeat…but to withdrawal from Iraq.
“Hal has always been non-committal when it comes to serious decisions in his life,” royal spokesman Nigel Hathorne-Dippinger claims, “relationships, University, wearing inappropriate Nazi regalia at Halloween parties…he’s never been content to think things through but always determined to pull out of a bad situation. So, naturally, this War was a perfect fit for him: a war effort…minus the effort.”
