    Note To Self:
    Don't bother renting "The Sum of All Fears" from Netflix...
    I neednt anymore Political Correctness and revisionist history than I'm already force fed.

    Present a positive image of Arabs? How about you do something positive first. You don't see the Swedes blowing themselves up in crowded marketplaces.

    Surprisingly, I haven't read anything by Clancy other than the Hunt for Red October.
    And that because I loved the film so much. I really should order some of his stuff from Amazon.

    I've read all of the Tom Clancy books and they are quite good.

    Best : Tie - Red Storm Rising (with Larry Bond): Probably the most realistic description of an all-out conventional war between the US and the old Soviet Union in the mid-eighties. The "Battle for the Atlantic" naval battles are without peer.
    Without Remorse :
    His resident spook's "Mr. Clark" shadowy past loaded with violence, revenge and action. Has one of the most skin-crawling interrogation scenes I've ever read....dive compression used as torture device.

    Worst : Rainbow Six : Tom, stick to big political thrillers, your handling of a supersecret "Special Forces" team is laughable. A spec-ops team selecting Beretta's and MP-10's? Not in this world. I do like the Rainbow Six video games, though.

    Honorable Mention: Debt of Honor : Has some the most incredible air battles in literature. Also predicated the use of airliners as a weapon of mass destruction seven years before it actually occurred.

    Red Storm Rising, rocks. I love how they always end up on the east coast and when their in iceland. I still have that book around here somewhere. I read it in HS.

    I'd be all for a planet of the Arabs, as long as it was the sun....yo!

    Myself, I'm a big Red Dawn fan.
