The Armageddon Protocol
With the end of the Cold War, the 21st Century ushered in a new enemy, one that was dedicated to the destruction of the United States of America and most of the Western world. They were eager to use violence on a massive and vicious scale to accomplish it. These were the members of Islamofascism. The country was to face an enemy that had no homeland and espoused an interpretation of their religion that was extremely violent. The Armageddon Protocol was created to counteract this new threat. Signed by the President in 2002, the Protocol was to be triggered by an attack on America or Israel with a weapon of mass destruction by an Islamic source. It would result with the destruction by thermonuclear weapons on all the holy sites of Islam, with particular interest in Mecca and Madina, as well as any other target of opportunity especially the Iranian nuclear capacity. This would make the holy sites radioactive for a thousand years. The Protocol was the 21st Century's version of the Cold War's Mutual Assured Destruction, the MAD concept. Also in 2002 the elements of the Protocol were provided to all of the terrorist camps and nations throughout the world so that they would not be ignorant of it. There had been no such attacks on America since the establishment of the Protocol. With the election of a new left-leaning President in 2008, who was determined to negotiate with the terrorists at any cost, the Iranian government translated his attitude as weakness. Iran then became determined to use the "Seven Sisters of the Prophet," seven suitcase-sized nuclear weapons originally produced by Russia and sold to Iran. The Iranians intended to infiltrate them into both the United States and Israel. Should even one of these weapon be detonated, it would trigger execution of the Protocol. Its very existence still had not yet made known to the new President. This could result in causing large-scale devastation in the Middle East and perhaps a worldwide conflagration, but could also possibly be an eventual universal blessing.
Lieutenant General Henry H. Henderson, who had been appointed by the previous president as Director of the National Security Agency becomes aware of the "Seven Sisters" plot and carefully tries to unlock and defeat it. He is accompanied in this endeavor by Jack and Rose Deiter, his twin sons Butch and Harry and Harry's fiancée Charlie Waggner who travel worldwide in search of the "Sisters."
