The sequel to The Hunt for Red October . First appearance of John Clark and Sergey Golovko. Ryan leads a CIA operation aimed at extracting the agency’s highest agent-in-place in the Kremlin, codenamed CARDINAL, who is being hunted by the KGB, and simultaneously forces the head of the KGB to defect.
The President authorizes the CIA to use American military forces in a covert war against a drug cartel in Colombia. The operation is betrayed. Ryan meets Clark as they lead a mission to rescue the abandoned soldiers. Domingo “Ding” Chavez (Clark’s protege in later novels) is one of the rescued soldiers. The 1994 film stars Harrison Ford as Ryan, Willem Dafoe as Clark, and Raymond Cruz as Chavez.
Palestinian and former East German terrorists find a nuclear weapon that had been lost by Israel, and use it to attack the United States. This nearly triggers a war between the U.S. and the Soviet Union, due to the incompetence of the new President and his mistress with an anti-Ryan agenda. Ryan intervenes to avert the war. The 2002 film stars Ben Affleck as Ryan and Liev Schreiber as Clark, and changes the identity and motivation of the terrorists to neo-Nazis.
But I am pleased to see there are still quite a few remaining for my future enjoyment!
The fictional character will have whatever knowledge the writers want him to have.
And non Muslim American audiences, who are the intended victims of Islamism, will assume that the heroic and knowledgeable Jim Greer will have checked out Islam, found it to be okay and they will adopt those same assumptions as the fictional character.
And they will have been led astray.
Not sure why its relevant if average American has a thorough knowledge of Islam.
Because the goal of Islam is being carried out through deception by unknown entities, without our knowledge.
