Not that sure about the new entry, but at least fix Example Indentation when adding something to the page.
* AuthorTract: ''Executive Orders'' basically features Jack Ryan cleaning up politics by putting Clancy's personal views into action.

Added DiffLines:
** Clancy's views of environmentalists in ''Literature/RainbowSix'' has all the subtlety of John Rambo or Jane Shepard trying out for the team: to cut a very long story short they not only have a burning hatred of the human race and desire to wipe them out but feverishly work towards the ability to do so, while pointing out their hypocrisy and double standard left right and center.

* HotSubOnSubAction: More subs attack each other in Clancy's novels than in the entire history of naval warfare. On the other hand, most of these novels are premised on the ColdWar heating up a bit, so it's entirely justified: after the '60s, that kind of sub-to-sub combat was not only possible but likely given that NATO and Warsaw Pact subs were constantly on one another's tails.

* WhyWeAreBummedCommunismFell: Clancy has had mixed success in finding new [[BigBad Big Bads]] after the collapse of the Soviet Union.

* WhyWeAreBummedCommunismFell: Clancy has had mixed success in finding new [[BigBad Big Bads]] after the collapse of the Soviet Union. It's a tossup whether Japan in ''Debt of Honor'' or a unified Iraq and Iran in ''Executive Orders'' is more implausible.

** One complaint about his novels was how most of the advanced tech gear he slavishly describes always worked: rarely did a gun jam or a helicopter crash due to accident.

** One complaint about his novels was how most of the advanced tech gear he slavishly describes always worked: rarely did a gun jam or a helicopter crash due to accident. Although his very first novel has the hero present for the final act at all only because the team of officers it would have been far more logical to assign the mission to had died on the way there, in a helicopter crash.

Deleted YMMV tropes. Mr. Clancy already has a YMMV page where this stuff should go.

* HarsherInHindsight: All over the place. Most notably: ** In ''Debt of Honor'', a Japanese airline pilot crashes his plane into the Capitol Building. Five years later, four airliners are crashed into buildings by terrorists, with the fourth airliner having been forced down by a passenger revolt on its way towards Washington, D.C. ** In ''Executive Orders'', a biological attack nearly shuts down the entire United States. Shortly following the September 11, 2001 attacks, powdered anthrax is sent through the postal system, impairing government operations. ** Although claims by the People's Republic of China to many islands in the South China Sea have been ongoing for years, only since about 2013 has there been actively enforcing those claims, as in ''Threat Vector'' ** ''Command Authority'' has the Russian Federation [[MakeTheBearAngryAgain trying and nearly succeeds in invading and annexing Ukraine]], getting to keep only the Crimea after President Ryan's intervention. Not half a year later, Russia invades Ukraine, using [[FalseFlagOperation imported "protesters"]] as part of the plan, ultimately taking the Crimea.
