Dragon's Fury
« on: October 09, 2011, 02:30:16 pm »

A couple of years ago I've read the book Dragon's Fury by Jeff Head.

This is a Big Techno-Thriller Epic of a book. It covers a future-history of a WWIII in which the Chinese teams up with the Islams to fight America. It become a big fight that it known as a World War. I don't think I'm giving away too much when I say the next high ground will be space. The Chinese have developed higher tech weapons than we have, but we're no pushover.

In the middle of the book is a demonstration of why we have the Second Amendment.

The book seems to be Republican in some places but its not too in your face. This is a very good book to read.

This make for a much more believable scenario to happen than the upcoming Red Dawn movie.

Holy Cow!

It seems that the Chinese have developed tech that is reminisced of the tech explained in the Dragon's Fury book by Jeff Head. It still remains to be seen if its pie in the sky or not.

The comments are full of all the things why it's not a good idea. But there's no reasons why it couldn't be done for weapons. Such as underwater torpedoes and underwater missles. Most of these weapons would be fired for short ranges anyway.

My gosh time flies...  I still haven't added this to my Kindle!  I need to take better mental notes so I don't forget 95% of everything that crosses my path.

LOL that's why I have a white board on the side or the fridge right inside the door from the mudroom, for little stuff I need to pick up or out of sight projects my wife wants me to do.  And a small note book to give me a heads up on more private stuff that needs done.
