I've said before on this blog that Tom Clancy was a little too
close to the truth in his novels. I'm watching the Sum of all
Fears on TV, where they massacred the book and made the
bad guys some neo-nazi group instead of the islamofacist
group in the book. I'm sure they changed that to be politically
correct, but it was a major mistake because if they had left it
as originally was told it would be a much more timely movie.
The attacks in Paris just happened in Paris 3 days ago, I'm guessing we'll
be seeing more of the same in Europe. ISIS would be fools to
attack in the USA, we currently have a dope/inept/apologist in
charge, and if something major is tried before the election it would
sway events away from the inevitable Hillary towards one of the
Much more likely they are working on a deeper game or bigger
attack similar to the Sum of all Fears. God protect us from smart
It really matters not a whit what the Republicans or Tea Party
think we should do to Isis. At some point either the problem will
be fixed by the Europeans, or some terrible event will happen and
rest of the country will rise up and demand war to the knife.
Watching the videos of the president in Turkey today, he sounded
like the most inept high school debater in southern louisiana. Even
CNN's Armenpour was talking about how inept he sounded.
I never expected to see Clancy's fictional presidents portrayed in
real life. He had several presidents beyond reality in novels, and
each one was more venal than the last until Ryan took over. The
current president is similar to a Tom Clancy character, likely
to get his comeuppance in the 3rd act.
