Defence sources are refusing to deny claims that Prince Harry has successfully eliminated a quantity of krill after a Hellfire missile from his Apache helicopter plunged into the Indian Ocean 300 miles from his Taliban commander target.
‘While we can’t comment on specifics for operational reasons, let’s just say Big H has eliminated over 100,000 threats to Western democracy’ said the anonymous source. ‘These krill may appear small fry, but if left alone for a million years they could have evolved into Taliban-sympathising land based crabs.’
The successful missile deployment continues Prince Harry’s good run in his latest Afghanistan tour of duty after he had earlier destroyed three termite colonies in central Pakistan, 200 miles from a mountainous Al-Qaeda stronghold.
While critics claim that eliminating insects with Hellfire missiles, as opposed to say fly spray, is a waste of resources, the defence source says that Captain Wales is having a powerful deterrent effect on both the Taliban and Al-Qaeda. ‘They can run but they can’t hide – they know that whether they are in a café in Mumbai, a yacht in the Indian Ocean, or on the 20th floor of a luxury Dubai hotel, they can never be safe from Harry’s missiles.’
