Short for Terrence?


The news broke that Prince Harry has been in Afghanistan for several months, so don’t expect any actual news out of British newspapers for a few days.

His job has been calling in bombing raids on what he calls “Terry Taliban and his mates.” On the radio, he was known only as Widow Six Seven, although he does order air strikes with the words, “Off with their heads.”

(Update: Terry is actually short for Terrorist.)

Israel’s deputy defense minister has threatened that further rocket attacks from Gaza “will bring upon themselves a bigger holocaust”. And no, that’s not a translation error.
