Taliban taunts ‘big mouth loser’ Prince Harry
The Taliban have expressed their fury after Prince Harry revealed he killed 25 enemy ‘chess pieces’ during his deployment in Afghanistan, in his tell-all memoir Spare.
Speaking to MailOnline, the militants taunted the Prince, saying they had the last laugh over the West and the ‘big mouth loser’ Duke of Sussex – who ‘fled to his grandmother’s palace’ – by recapturing the country in 2021.
The Taliban said while their Mujaheddin ‘chess pieces’ are the ultimate victors of the conflict, Harry is struggling to maintain a place in the Royal Family, in response to the claims made in the soon-to-be-released book.
The angry response from the Taliban followed criticism of the Duke from military veterans and MPs for his battleground revelations, with one calling his writing a ‘betrayal of the people he fought alongside’.
Members of the Taliban have expressed their fury over Prince Harry’s claims that he killed 25 ‘chess pieces’ during his second deployment in Afghanistan. The Duke of Sussex undertook two tours of Afghanistan. In his memoir, he says he did not think of those killed ‘as people’ but instead ‘chess pieces’ he had taken off the board prompting anger from the Taliban

Speaking from a checkpoint outside Islam Qala, a town on the border with Iran, Taliban commander Molavi Agha Gol, 32, said that he thought Harry was attention seeking. ‘We are still here ruling but he has fled to his grandmother’s palace. He’s a big mouth loser who has been trying to get attention,’ Agha Gol said.
‘I do not even believe what he said about the Mujaheddin. He is a loser and scared to go to a combat zone. We made history by kicking him and his army out of our homeland and he should be very angry about that,’ he said.
‘Do not believe whatever losers tell you. I see news about him a lot on my Facebook feed and really think he’s gone mad and needs a doctor immediately,’ he added.
‘Even if he believes [that he killed 25 Taliban], our martyred Mujaheddin are in heaven, but his invading friends are burning in hell and I really hope I was in Helmand when he was there, to make him understand what real chess pieces are.’
‘If he’s a real man and not a f***ing loser, come to Afghanistan again,’ Agha Gol challenged the Duke of Sussex.
Prince Harry claimed in his memoir that he killed 25 Taliban fighters during his second tour of duty in Afghanistan. The memoir is the latest in a string of public revelations and accusations by Harry and Meghan that have shaken the royal family.
Harry, who was known as ‘Captain Wales’ in the military, wrote that he did not think of those killed ‘as people’ but instead ‘chess pieces’ he had taken off the board.
‘You can’t kill people if you see them as people’, he wrote, and said he instead saw them as ‘chess pieces removed from the board’… as ‘bad guys eliminated’.

‘Pieces of chess are now in power and he’s struggling to maintain his place within his own family,’ an official in the Taliban’s Ministry for the Propagation of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice, said in response.
Abul Qahar Balkhi, spokesman for the Taliban ministry of foreign affairs, said in a statement: ‘The western occupation of Afghanistan is truly an odious moment in human history and comments by Prince Harry are a microcosm of the trauma experienced by Afghans at the hands of occupation forces who murdered innocents without any accountability.
‘Some of the recent reports highlighting the scale of murder by foreign airpower and raids including by UK forces is what Prince Harry also participated in,’ he added.
Harry spent a decade in the British Army before taking up full-time royal duties in 2015. During that time, he did two tours of Afghanistan.
The prince was first deployed to Helmand province as a forward air controller in 2007, but his first tour of duty was cut short. He returned in 2012.
Spare is the first time that Harry, 38, has specified the number of insurgents he personally killed during his time in Afghanistan. The Prince said that he flew on six missions that resulted in the ‘taking of human lives’ in his autobiography – which leaked in Spain days before its official release date.
While many soldiers do not know how many enemies they have killed in combat, the Duke wrote that ‘in the era of Apaches and laptops’ he was able to say ‘with exactness’ the number of insurgents he killed.

‘It’s him claiming that he martyred the Taliban, but it may be civilians too. If England has a system and regulations, they should investigate and see whom he killed,’ Molavi Keramudin, a Taliban commander in the central city of Ghor.
‘He is a so-called prince and should not freely walk after killing civilians. It is not acceptable. He has problems and is just climbing over whatever he can to stop himself and his country’s falling into sh*t,’ he said.
After learning how to fly Apache helicopters, Harry was deployed to Camp Bastion in southern Afghanistan in 2012 where he stayed for 20 weeks. While there, Harry helped provide helicopter support to the International Security Assistance Force and Afghan forces operating throughout Helmand province.
Based out of Camp Bastion, 662 Squadron Army Air Corps, to which he belonged, flew more than a hundred deliberate missions over 2,500 flying hours.
‘I remember when Mujaheddin attacked Shorabak [Camp Bastion], when I got to know he was there, I regretted a lot why I was not there,’ Jamal Mujahid, a member of the Taliban army’s Badri Unit – a suicide squad in the southern province of Kandahar.
‘I wish I was in that operation. I challenge him to come back to Afghanistan. If he’s proud of killing 25 of us, we killed thousands of them and kicked them out,’ he added.
In the summer of 2021, the Taliban took control of Afghanistan with a lighting offensive that swept across the country in a matter of weeks, overthrowing the Western-backed government that was installed by the US, UK and their allies.
Leaders of the Western backed government fled the country as Western coalition forces pulled out of the country, culminating in the collape of the Afghan military and the Taliban capturing Kabul on August 15, 2021.
Despite promising a more progressive regime than when they were last in power in 2001, the Taliban have eroded the rights of women and minority groups in the country, most recently banning women from attending university – a move that drew fierce condemnation from the international community.

Molavi Nabi Jan, a Taliban official in the western Afghan city of Herat, said: ‘He’s a dirty idiot and a drunk jackal. He has destroyed all bridges behind him and is now just trying to avoid drowning in history.
‘Using the Taliban and his family is his last tool to make people talk about him. I know him very well. God left him on his own to give him a very big punishment at the end.’
‘He’s evil. God damn him, his family and his palaces. He’s made lots of Afghan women widows and lots of children orphans and he’s proud of that,’ an official in the provincial governor of the southern Helmand province told MailOnline.
Another Taliban official, Anas Haqqani, tweeted: ‘Mr. Harry! The ones you killed were not chess pieces, they were humans; they had families who were waiting for their return. Among the killers of Afghans, not many have your decency to reveal their conscience and confess to their war crimes.
‘The truth is what you’ve said; Our innocent people were chess pieces to your soldiers, military and political leaders. Still, you were defeated in that “game” of white & black “square”.
‘I don’t expect that the ICC will summon you or the human rights activists will condemn you, because they are deaf and blind for you. But hopefully these atrocities will be remembered in the history of humanity,’ he added.
The furious Taliban response came after Harry was also criticised by military veterans and MPs over the content of the up-coming book.
Former British Army Colonel Richard Kemp said on Thursday that the Duke of Sussex’s writing amounts to a ‘betrayal of the people he fought alongside’.
Mr Kemp’s stark warning came as former Royal Marine Ben McBean, who Harry hailed as a ‘hero’ after he lost an arm and a leg in a bomb blast during the war, urged the duke to ‘shut up’.
Meanwhile Colonel Bob Stewart – a Tory MP who commanded British troops in Bosnia – slammed the comments as ‘distasteful’.

Former British Army Colonel Richard Kemp yesterday said the Duke of Sussex’s decision to spill details in his upcoming autobiography ‘Spare’ amount to a ‘betrayal of the people he fought alongside’
Mr McBean tweeted today: ‘Love you #PrinceHarry but you need to shut up! Makes you wonder the people he’s hanging around with. If it was good people somebody by now would have told him to stop.’
Meanwhile, the MP for Beckhenham told MailOnline of Harry’s comments: ‘I wonder why he is doing such things. Real soldiers tend to shy away… People I know don’t boast about such things. They rather regret that they have had to do it.’
Colonel Stewart, who was awarded the Distinguished Service Order after seven tours of Northern Ireland and leading UN forces in Bosnia, went on: ‘It is also rather sad that a man who has had all these advantages in life seems so intent on destroying himself and the monarchy.
‘I feel really sad for the King. Because the King is a good man. I have met him a few times, he was my colonel of the regiment. He is a very sensitive decent man and this will be really hurting him a great deal, all this furore.
‘I just think it is so sad because so many people have not had Prince Harry’s chances in life, and the whole thing seems to be a bit tragic.’
Another Tory MP, who did not want to be named, said Harry’s behaviour was ‘bonkers’, adding: ‘He is bringing everything into disrepute.’
