Apparently....

Old Crystal balls Tom Clancy predicted in his last book he wrote about an ex-KGB agent turned Russian president who invades the Ukraine.
i have not read this book or know anything about it but i will pass on the info to you at ATS. I know about the Ghost Recon prediction for the Georgian war so i googled Clancy predicts Russia invades Ukraine and came across this.

Has anyone read this book? What you guys and girls think.

Linky to prediction


In his last co-authored novel, Command Authority, published in December, the Russian president, a ruthless former KGB agent, seeking to return Russia to its glory days, invades Ukraine. Hmm, I wonder if Putin is a Clancy fan …


L inky to review of book

p.s my first thread here on ats so go easy. I was not sure if to put in WW3 forum or here but here seemed the most relevant.

i often wonder if they were predictions or little birdies whispering in tom's ear.
he said one time in a interview, he had a lot of friends all over the world in the intelligence business.

I always wondered how close he was to some agencies.

His level of detail and insight was quite remarkable.

I know of one of his close connections. I don't think I'm supposed to give that away though. someone's dad.. This was more of an Area 51 connect than an agency connect. He obviously wasn't writing off the top of his head.


I don't know about the Ukraine thing though. I only read a couple of his first books. If he did write those things it wasn't a prediction per se, but more of a likely probability based on his knowledge.

OR if he knew too much he could have been warning people in advance that the world is more planned than some believe.

From books to video games I grew up on this guy. He will be greatly missed. As far as predictions? Video games these days paint an all TOO real future. It may sound juvenile but.................

June 26, 1999, Clancy married freelance journalist Alexandra Marie Llewellyn, whom he had met in 1997.[26] Llewellyn is the daughter of J. Bruce Llewellyn and a family friend of Colin Powell, who originally introduced the couple to each other

Makes one wonder..... i also believe his wifes father was in the CIA near the top.

I didn't read that one. I was an avid reader of his works until it became so
overwhelming for him that he had to have "Co Authors".

So I felt that some legitimacy was lost.

Maybe I was wrong and missed out on a good one.

You know how it is,
Devil is in the Details and all.

Hes a genius, he also predicted a plan crashing in the white house by a japanese pilot, well close enough i guess.

Clancy was most likely 'in the know'. At least that's what I always presumed. Makes perfect sense to me and the guy even looks that way IMHO.

Very good thread. I am a Clancy fan myself, but like another poster haven't read him in quite some time....

I see this type of prediction being more of a political inevitability rather than knowledge of the unseen but I suppose the insight to foresee and forecast the inevitable is unusual therefore appears rather prophetic in nature.

Really, wasn't much to add, but I wanted to support and encourage you in your first thread, as it is an excellent topic!

I'll have to look this one up.

Is it Tom Clancy proper or the cacky Tom Clancy's that were ghost written?

I've heard that if you are any good as an author that when you get something wrong in one of your books people who read it and catch your mistake will tend to come out of the woodwork and call you on it, and if you know what's good for you, you will keep them as a contact because most of them will happily become experts for you in your future endeavors. Give the sheer amount of technical detail and plot complexity in his books ... he definitely had plenty of chances to build quite a rolodex.

Tom Clancy, who died Tuesday at the age of 66, was one of the most successful authors and media moguls in the country. His books like The Hunt for Red October and Rainbow Six were bestsellers that went on to spawn blockbuster films and video game franchises, but longtime fans have noticed that Clancy had knack for more than crafting a plot, as many of Clancy’s stories have had an eerie ability to foresee future. Here a few real life events that Clancy seemed to anticipate in his fictional plots.
