What, Is The Taliban Getting Its News From Us Weekly Now?

So you’re the Taliban. You’ve been fighting for your Islamic fundamentalist cause for a couple decades now. Sure, things were a bit easier before the U.S. decided to intervene and kick you out of Afghanistan, but you’re holding your own. But you are just not helping your cause — or credibility — by commenting on Prince Harry’s naked pictures.

According to Taliban spokesperson Zabiullah Mujahid, Prince Harry–the ubiquitous party prince–was deployed to Afghanistan in the wake of his naked picture scandal as a form of punishment. “The British Army is under pressure, just like the other forces in Afghanistan, and Britain wants to encourage its soldiers with such actions. And also the Prince was seen in naked pictures in England. To cover this shame, maybe he can atone by showing that he is fighting beside their soldiers in Afghanistan,” he said.

Okay, so really, is the Taliban hanging out on PerezHilton.com now, or what? Geez, Taliban, you’re embarrassing yourselves.

“The British haven’t been able to do anything here in Afghanistan with all their soldiers,” continued Mujahid. “They can’t do anything with their Prince here either.” Mreow! Catty! Maybe the prince should start a flame war in the comments. [Telegraph UK]
