@23 gundam fan

Correct me if im wrong here.

Is your recent posts in regards to viewers/fans being biased against Minerva? The more i read it the more it is coming off this way.

I've notice that the thread has another phase regarding AA, Orb and Minerva.

I'll try to be neutral but this is my thought ( I don't know if this has any relations)

Why AA protects Orb?

>To protect their friends and it's citizens
>To have a nation that continues to stand neutral between Zaft and EA (?)

Why AA fights Minerva?

>not intentionally at the start, but because Minerva is a lethal arm of Zaft. Minerva does Durandalls's every bidding (until the event where he sacrifice a fleet to be destroyed together with Orb's) that is why AA has to fight Minerva. Minerva's success is Durandall's as well. AA also attacks EA but majority are of against Zaft.

Why does AA attacks only Zaft and EA(?)
>Zaft becomes more aggressive than that of earth so AA's target was the Aggressor. EA was just dragged again into war and Blue Cosmos took advantage of it. For me, AAs target is stopping Durandall's and Blue cosmos evil palns

I praised the Minerva's ship captain (?), she knew something is wrong about Durandall's actions but sadly she is not in the position to go against him.

Yes.

No, Cagalli doesn't want Orb to be involved with either ZAFT or EA.

No, it's because Minerva is attacking Orb.

But they do attack EA as well.

1 -

A.) The citizens at least. Don't know how many people they actually KNOW (that we know of) that live there though.

B.) As mentioned, Orb is meant to be neutral, as in not involved with the war at all with either side. It doesn't give any (official) aid to one or the other, but doesn't turn them away either. (Like Side 6 in Mobile Suit Gundam.) In terms of Side 6 anyway, their only rules were that neither side is allowed to fight the other or causing conflict while within Side 6's boundaries, which is why both sides, while they had their MS and weaponry READY to fire, neither side ever took any action until right after they left Side 6 airspace.

Of course, 0080 had Libot (part of Side 6) ending up breaking this by housing the Gundam Alex for completion and testing and the Zeon's Cyclops Team trying to destroy it and causing MS battles within.



2 -

A.) One can't also forget that, at the time (earlier anyway IIRC), Dullindal, to the eyes of most civilians, both Earth and space, was a saint while the EA was the tyrannical one trying to hold everything in an iron grip and, by joining with them (through Yuuno), Orb became a part of the EA war machine, thus becoming a legitimate military target for ZAFT to attack as it was no longer the neutral nation it was before.

This makes ZAFT's attack look far more justifiable than the EA's did in SEED, where they simply attacked Orb for not joining with them (because of their "join us or be declared an automatic ally of ZAFT and we'll attack you anyway") and wanting their mass driver.



3 -

A.) Also as mentioned, Kira and co. attack both EA AND ZAFT forces that are engaged in conflict with eachother or with them. This is what, earlier on, caused so much confusion on the battlefield. The clear lines of ally and enemy became blurred by a 3rd party just barging in and attacking everyone like that.

In destiny for the most part of the serie Earth's either neutral or have a super power allied with ORB so thats not really a problem. Its AA specifically Cagalli that has problem with the AF

For your first part

Minerva is at war with ORB

As evil as it sounds sacrificing personal to achieve a victory. Humans have been doing this long before current civilizations and is some cases still practice it today. Sucky as it sounds but to me that action itself is normal.

Im not saying Durandall's action are noble or anything of the like. When out of clean options youll have to take drastic measure(s) when situations doesn't favor you at extreme levels. So glady's having that doubt is to me is to enhance story drama.

Ive had a missile strike detonation 40m of my squad position once. Pissed and angry i was but at the same time im expendable like the next guy. Nor did i think something was shady.

AA was shooting at everyone including orb forces

For your information, any competent militant will question themselves the reasons why they entered the war or fight. People know not everything is black and white as politicians make things out to be. So to me that is a given. Its like when that Colonel of the orb fleet knew deep down that yuna was being shady.

Being a vet of 2 wars and peacekeeping i still question myself some of the big questions.

That's not true. The two times Archangel interfered, they attacked both EA/Orb and Minerva. In Berlin, they attacked EA. And in phase 34, ZAFT attacked them, so of course they would be fighting ZAFT.

So, no, the majority of Archangel's attack is not against ZAFT.

but the truth of the situation should truff just blindly being on orb side when you are clearly in the wrong. while yes cagalli loves her nation and would want to defend it , but there is nothing to defend here as far as orbs actions. they were wrong period. i mean its like trying to defend a brother you love when they are a lock up for killing someone, you can still love them all you want but there is no defending them, so dont even try.

You're delusional if you think a government would let another country's military wipe out their own forces just because they're in the "wrong."

@23 gundam fan

I can see your point of view as in a personal level relationship between siblings as well as a non official representative.

Problem is even *IF* orb is in the wrong, by default your still have to support your nation forces. Without them, your asking anyone without friendly intentions to invade your territory. Which is far worse scenario than not supporting your forces.

That would be ok if you're informed of what is going to happen... but what happened to the fleet (I don't think they had an idea that the damned ray gun is focused at at their location) is far more "WTF" are you shooting at us?! Why didn't you at least told us to moved away even if it's impossible.

@genjichan

It does fall back to my *desperate measure*

But as far as Doctrine is concern is that you dont point a WMD at friendlies direction during a battle unless thers is decent amount of probability you are willing to destroy both Allie and foe. Which was the case in DESTINY.

Meaning to those in the firing path of the big ray gun would of known if things arnt going to well there is that possibility you'll be fried.

So i guess its ok ONV telling me that i dont get it? Because i dont like the show?


Flip side of the coin

ONV is mocking Gundam fans who have rational thinking and concluded on why they dislike the show, which happens not everyone shares the same pov as he does. Which i find it very disrespectful and It comes off as petty. ONV has opened it doors to be challenged on these points.

If you want to challenge someone challenge someone don't make a video mocking them. Two wrongs don't make a right.
