OPINION: Prince Harry speaks, with boyish enthusiasm, of his pleasure at killing Taliban soldiers, showing an eye-for-an-eye attitude (Harry ''killed Taliban'' on Afghan tour of duty, Jan 23). I wonder how he distinguishes between Taliban militants and non-combatant villagers, who might also include children. This, while travelling at 500 feet altitude, and at a high defensive speed. He uses a high- powered, fast-spitting weapon that was never designed to distinguish between friend and foe. Has he given this a thought? Unlike PlayStation or the computer games he enjoys, firearms kill real people without distinguishing between their innocence or guilt.
