I’ve been thinking about my techno thriller bit from a few days ago. Another thing about these books is the way the USA always takes on enemies who are (almost) their equals. You never see them bombing a bunch of guys in caves who only have Kalahnikovs and maybe a dozen twenty year old Stingers to shoot back with, or the Green Berets getting their arses kicked by a Somali gang with borrowed weapons. Odd that, isn’t it.
