In the Atlantic, a North Korean boat has nuclear missiles aboard. Due to failed communication with his superiors at home, the admiral launches the weapons a

Two of the missiles head towards New York City; Jordan has minutes to activate the Return to Sender laser guidance system that sends a missile back to its launch site. The counter operation proves successful, but the media questions the consequences while the White House and Senate demand he turn over the Return to Sender system to Senator Stratworth and his committee. When he refuses to give it to anyone outside of the Pentagon as he fears anyone else will sell it for oil and credit. The President and Congress use the media to go after Joshua. Joshua soon learns he might be a target as Iran, North Korea and Russia as well as allies want the system and will go to any length to get it.

Taking place in the near future in which America is short on cash as a new growing dust bowl threatens Midwest agriculture, corruption permeates the government, Joshua and two secret cabals try to bring back the country to what is once was. Tim LaHaye and Craig Parshall provides readers with an exciting thriller as the United Sates is on the Edge of Apocalypse while the hero must deal with the possibility of biblical Armageddon and saving his nation.

Observations on book:
1. Good guys and girls use words GOD and LORD without giving definitions. Writers appear unaware that it is in vain to use undefined words in an attempt to communicate.
2. FCC Chairman hasn’t been replaced yet by new administration which is more “liberal” than Obama’s. ..
3. CIA patriots spy in US and are presented as good guys.
4. Present Prez pressures one element of big-media to squelch another element(righteous) because it would say something negative about present Prez
5. FCC Chief Affected by lawyer-wife of Hero chief of righteous media element and forces big-media-squelchers to co-operate with Rightous media element.
6. Fox News actually got some truth to US before “big-media” labeled them Faux news.
7. Rightous Knights(Roundtable) are creating a SUPERFOX that will deliver realtruth to all US cellphones instantly when righteous guys say so.
8. Writers condescend to readers with zilch understanding of physical possibilities. Rightous guys have invented missile with laser that reprograms a ballistic missile to make U-turn and blast evil-doers. Writers don’t appear to understand difference in guided and ballistic missiles.

I read the last page so I know the “government” decides to quit forcing big-media element to repeat, amplify the Rightous guys message any more. I imagine FCC chief was replaced. The ”government” is obviously stupid and dangerous to US because the Rightous media has the real poop that some enemy is about to launch a nuclear attack on Israel and US.
Hero address’s “Roundtable” of patriots: “ The current administration will dismiss our intel and will not take action.”

“Our course is clear. Because the White House will not act—then we must.”
Finis End of book.

Note implication that the 15 US intel agencies have failed to get evidence on this attack Implying present Intelligent agencies are less capable under present Adm.

Note that CIA chief told ‘02 Adm. that if they could prove that Saddam possessed nuclear weapons It would be a “slam-dunk” that public opinion would support an attack. He also said there was no evidence that Saddam had nukes. So that Adm. with assistance of big-media said the evidence for nukes was a slam-dunk. Big-media has never admitted they dug beneath the surface to get the words around “slam-dunk” right.

Looks like righteous patriotic believers(readers of the series) are being prepared to rebel should a Rightous FCC Chief be replaced after he fails to stop big-media from yelling NUCLEAR FIRE! in the US crowd, as in’02. .
Is anyone interested in why the Jewish/Christian zealots are preaching, nurturing Armageheddon?
