Military code names have nothing in common with the actual operation taking place. It should not and it is silly to expect the name to mean anything or indicate anything in particular. Therefore, none of the GMJ Books has a name from which you can deduct the contents of the book and that is not by chance, it is written like that, it should be a hidden code, known only to those directly involved. Yet, the code names used always had something to do with Angelique Dawson. The name, like all the others, are explained in the book but it is French actually, it means “for Angelique” indicating her return to the Great Game after defecting in 2012 (Code Name VFO565).
In Code Name Pour Angelique, we deal with the consequences of starting a fire you cannot control and may come back at you. When Special Forces or secret agents attack someone or something they better succeed, or the retaliation will follow you home. We see this happening every day in the current War on Terror. Traditionally, before 9/11, the terrorist activities were far away and something on the news, not in your neighbourhood if American or if from Western Europe. There were terrorist incidents, of course, especially in France where not all were Muslim related as such - Mossad taking out Arabs - such acts are terrorism and innocents were murdered. Before that, the French suffered under the Algerian problem and anti-de Gaul actions. In the UK we had a great terror threat with the IRA exploding bombs since the 1970s and in the US, the terror mostly came from the white supremacists such as the Oklahoma Bombing etc. Yet, looking back, that was almost innocent in what is happening now. In the 1990s, the West has grown complacent. It undoubtedly never occurred to anyone in power that the constant meddling in the Middle East may have unforeseen consequences for future generations. This is what this book is about - when you push too far, the pushback may be more than what you bargained for and once that type of fight starts, there will be only one man standing at the end. In Code Name Pour Angelique I want to show you what happens when you take on the wrong people or you kill the wrong man. In counterterrorism that is the very worst mistake ever, to kill indiscriminately and to murder innocents, there is always a retaliation in kind and yet that is what is happening today, 2 innocents die for every terrorist killed by NATO Forces. I often warn of the consequences in my books. The Barack Obama drone attacks had a 96.5% failure rate, they missed the intended target 96.5% of the time. As a counterterrorism effort, pathetic beyond any words and the civilian population will suffer the logical consequences, terrorism at home. There is no excuse.
