* ViewersAreMorons: Taken to relative length in ''Rainbow Six'' and ''The Bear and the Dragon'', where certain important points are explained multiple times, in depth; one would assume that John Clark's meeting with Golovko in ''Executive Orders'' would be important enough for everyone present at Rainbow HQ to at least know of.

spoiler adjustment. Spoilering the whole entry isn't very useful to those with spoilers turned on
** In ''Debt of Honor'', [[spoiler:the U.S. Capitol Building is destroyed by a kamikaze Japanese Airlines pilot. Clancy was interviewed several times in the wake of the September 11th attacks specifically because of this coincidence. Specifically, a little before the attacks he raised how his editor said this was too far fetched to a general friend and asked if they had ever discussed this. The general thought about it and said something along the lines of, "No Tom, we hadn't discussed a hijacking and suicide bombing, but when the Joint Chiefs next meet, we will."]]

** Likewise, Patriot Games dealt with America's vulnerability to foreign terrorist groups long before any actually operated over there.

Added DiffLines:
** The extreme savagery and resulting death toll from the Syrian and Iraqi Civil Wars make it hard to take ''Executive Orders'' relatively problem-free merger of Iraq and Iran seriously.

unfortunate implications need citations
* UnfortunateImplications: In ''Teeth of the Tiger'', Dominic says this to his twin Brian: -->"You always were the altar boy in the family." :: Cue the recent [[PedophilePriest clerical sex scandals.]]

** The stupidity reaches such a point that several of the Chinese Politburo members themselves openly start saying "guys, we're being total morons about this". Nobody listens to them.

Merged in YMMV entries improperly placed on Main page.
*** Made even harsher in that the car involved in the car accident was a Cresta. Cresta ''was'' a Toyota model.

Added DiffLines:
*** Made even harsher in that ** Although claims by the car involved People's Republic of China to many islands in the car accident was 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 Cresta. Cresta ''was'' a Toyota model. year later, Russia invades Ukraine, using [[FalseFlagOperation imported "protesters"]] as part of the plan, ultimately taking the Crimea.
