...I am now assuming control. I just went to the bookstore today and there was a really nice womenz that caught my eye. I kinda followed her around, but when she started following me I got scared (didn't want a replay of the mall incident) and went to leave the place, but not before this book got my attention: [img]images.amazon.com/images/P/0515128422.01.LZZZZZZZ.jpg[/img] It is a near future novel about the Chinese taking over Asia, the Middle East [Israel got nuked because they used nukes first] and finally setting it's sights on the U.S. From the little I have read so far, it is hard to put down, but within first 12 pages I already found a major gun related error: "She then grabbed her M16 which came with an M249. The 40mm grenade launcher, mounted underneath the barrel, looked like a toy." There is a mention about "partisan snipers behind enemy lines who have vowed to go down fighting" so it may have a pro-gun message.

"mall incident" ? This sounds good....I assume its been posted before, could you point me in the right direction? :-) (unless, of course, you'd like to recount it here) As for the book, well, the next time I'm in a bookstore I'll be sure to check it out. Sounds interesting. FOTBR

Hadn't seen that one yet.....read ARC LIGHT, a pretty good read. As for Eric Harry, yes he is pro-gun, pro freedom, a good guy. I had the pleasure of meeting him a couple of years ago after he wrote Arc Light. He's a fellow alumnus of the military academy that I attended during high school.

I see no Pulitzer Prize in this author's future. [rolleyes]

I remember the first time I read this book... back when it was called "Red Dawn."
