Tom Clancy RIP

I didn't like his view on how Jerusalem would be controlled through Vatican Swiss guards, in the armored infantry role, would enforce the international status of Jerusalem. The US would impose this. But he gave me, and many many millions many hours of pleasure. As Lynette Nusbacher wrote: "He was genuinely able to envision scenarios which reeked of realism. He gave us Central Asian Islamist extremists before almost anyone in the West had considered the possibility. He gave us blowback in Afghanistan before the Soviets had even left. He gave us mass terrorist murder on American soil before the end of the Cold War. He was as appalled as the rest of us when his 1994 vision of an airliner used as a weapon came true in 2001". RIP Tom Clancy 66
