A smash bestseller that spent over six months on the New York Times bestseller list, FLIGHT OF THE INTRUDER became an instant classic.

No one before or since ever captured the world of Navy carrier pilots with the gripping realism of Vietnam veteran Stephen Coonts, who lived the life he wrote about.

More than a flying story, FLIGHT OF THE INTRUDER is also one of the best novels ever written about the Vietnam experience.

It’s all here—the flying, the dying, the blood and bombs and bullets, and the sheer joy—and terror—of life at full throttle.

It follows the exploits of Lieutenant Jake “Cool Hand” Grafton following the death of his bombardier-navigator during a 3:00 am airstrike in downtown North Vietnam to the site called SAM-City. (SAM: Surface to Air Missiles)

Where has the next Jake Grafton been hiding during the eight years of the Obama administration?

An obvious sequel would feature two of Hollywood’s leftists dropping bombs on the White House and Congress when both houses are in session. 

Of course, the Republicans would be given a heads up and be among the “No shows.”

Suggestion for lead roles as pilots: Ben Affleck and Brad Pitt.

For Affleck and Pitt fans, not to worry, this is only fiction,

Now that would be a film worth watching.

Obama revises plan for major troop reduction in Afghanistan

President Obama announced during a press conference Wednesday that about 8,400 troops will remain in Afghanistan through the end of his term. Obama had previously planned to drop troop levels to 5,500 by early 2017 .

President Barack Obama sought to draw down American military presence abroad and has resisted committing ground troops to various international conflicts. Despite pushes from within his administration to commit U.S. military forces to the civil war in Syria, Obama kept U.S. military action in the country focused on the Islamic State group. He was widely criticized for failing to follow through on the “red line” he set over Syrian President Bashar Assad’s use of chemical weapons against his own people.

The U.S. dropped 79 percent of the anti-Islamic State group coalition bombs in Syria and Iraq, totaling 24,287. That figure, along with others analyzed by CFR, is likely lower than the actual number dropped because one airstrike can involved multiple bombs.

Obama did authorize a troop surge in Afghanistan — a conflict he pledged to end during his campaign — where the U.S. dropped 1,337 bombs in 2016. There are currently 8,400 U.S. troops left in the country, more than Obama initially wanted to keep there at the end of his term. The U.S. only dropped 947 bombs in Afghanistan in 2015.

The U.S. also dropped more bombs in Libya in 2016 than it did in 2015. Nearly 500 bombs were dropped in the North African country that has essentially been ungoverned since the fall of dictator Muammar Gaddafi in 2011. He was captured and killed during the Libyan Civil War, kicked off by the Arab Spring protests that also began the Syrian conflict.

There were 34 American bombs dropped last year in Yemen, where the war began in 2015. That’s fewer than the 58 bombs the U.S. dropped there that year. The U.S. supports Saudi Arabia in the conflict, although it announced in December it will limit military support following criticism about the role American weapons and technology have played in civilian casualties.

In 2016, 14 bombs were dropped in Somalia, which has faced decades of instability, and three were dropped in Pakistan.

I am firmly devoted to bringing you the truth and the stories that the mainstream media ignores. Together we can restore our constitutional republic to what the founding fathers envisioned and fight back against the progressive movement. Obama nearly destroyed our country economically, militarily coupled with his racism he set us further on the march to becoming a Socialist State. Now it's up to President Trump to restore America to prominence. Republicans who refuse to go along with most of his agenda RINOs must be forced to walk the plank, they are RINOs and little else.

    Sad, you did not disclose the bombs set off in America and Israel.

    The time has come to disclose how many innocents die because of Muslim Terrorism.

    Also, there is the issue of a Bomb vs. a missile. I would think the Yemen bombs were actually missiles based on the small number.

    The problem is the targets were greatly limited by Obama and his Muslim favorable Rules of Engagement.

    The idea that America needs to be concerned about “collateral damage” while the Muslims kill any and all in their “kill zone”. These types of double standards need to be corrected by a warrior who fights to win.
