Here’s the full transcript of Nicholas Witchell’s BBC news report on Prince Harry’s visit to the ‘Warrior Games’ as part of his seven day tour of the USA.
“He’s never been one to turn down a challenge, which is why Harry was to be found forming the base of a human pyramid. Why were they doing it and why was there a man dressed as a bird on top, those are questions to which there are no clear answer.
But the challenge that matters to Harry at the moment is to bring a sporting event such as this to Britain. The ‘Warrior Games’ has been an annual event in the United States for the past four years. As the name implies, these are games for wounded service men and women; they help rehabilitation, they’re good for morale. Harry’s plan is to create a British version.
This is far more than a whim on Harry’s part, the ambition is to have games such as this taking place in Britain within the next couple of years. That’s the aspiration, behind the scenes Harry and his officials are working to turn it into a reality. It means a lot to the athletes, it matters to Harry and he’s determined to see it happen. Nicholas Witchell, BBC News, Colorado Springs.”
That’s 1 minute and 21 seconds of BBC propaganda served up as a genuine news item. Here’s the real story.
“He’s never been one to turn down a freebie, which is why Harry was to be found feeling up pretty young American girls at the tax payer’s expense. Why they were doing it and why there was a man dressed as a bird on top are questions to which there is only one answer; such juvenile antics are supposed to show the fun-loving, cheeky side to one of the world’s foremost parasites.
But the challenge that matters to Harry at the moment is to engineer an image of himself as a brave, warrior prince. ‘The Mutilated Cannon Fodder Games’ has been an annual event in the United States for two centuries. As the name implies, these are PR opportunities for the armed services and the politicians who send them to war to protect their own economic interests. They help sell war to young kids, they’re good for mass, global propaganda. Harry’s plan is to pretend he puts his life in danger just like these poor bastards.
This is far more than just a banal photo opportunity on Harry’s part, the ambition is to patronise mutilated British squaddies in Britain within the next few years. That’s the cynical explanation, behind the scenes, Harry’s faceless strategists are pimping him out to turn it into a reality. It means fuck all to the Taliban, it matters not an iota to the city whiz kids who make billions from oil and weapons and they’re determined to use dim witted royals to front their cycle of perpetual conflict.
