A North Korean physicist wanting to defect to the United States, seeks out CIA agent Commander Charles Garrity at a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration meeting in Bonn Germany. She has valuable information about a plot by several rogue countries to launch an attack into the United States from an al Qaeda training base in Northern Mexico. The trail of weapons and terrorists across the globe from Libya to North Korea, through Venezuela and into Mexico is a tale of intrigue and deception, all the while being pursued by the high flying U-2 Spy Planes and Military Forces throughout the world.


11 Dash line

A little history here.  In 1946 after the Japanese occupation in the South China Sea, China claimed sovereignty over a 11 dash line drawn in the SCS encompassing some 120,000 square kilometers.  In 1954 the Chinese adjusted to a 9 dash line to pacify the Vietnamese on some islands.  At the time there was little interest to contest this land grab since most of the islands were little more than uninhabited atolls.  But today in the rush for oil and gas exploration there is a challenge to this questionable claim of the high seas by China.
