The ones killing with toxic gas the civilians living inside a giant object so they could drop said giant object over soldiers, missing by an entire continent.
Those are the ones in the wrong.
>nerve gas millions of people
>drop their flying home full of their corpses on earth
>fuck it up and miss your target
>kick off a war that would wipe out a significant portion of the human race
hard to call it
the only positive thing that happened there was there was suddenly a lot less Australians
And that somehow changes the fact that Zeon has a tendency to gas colonies and drop them from space?
The only problem with Zeon is they didn't kill enough earthnoids.
Why shouldn't you use dirty tricks when you're fighting an enemy that has a larger army, a larger economy, and a larger population? How can you possibly expect to win if you're sticking to conventional methods?
What was Zeon supposed to do? Try to occupy all of the quisling colonies and have like 90% of their military tied up in the occupation and be unable to progress further to Earth? Or leave those colonies alone and let the Feddies in them reorganize and strike back?
As for the colony drop, a tactical use of a weapon of mass destruction on the military HQ of the other side is pretty much the least bloody way of trying to end a conflict, it's not their fault the Feddies derailed it.
Australians are always in the wrong
Zeon was starved for manpower for pretty much the entirety of the war. Sure, in ideal conditions, Zeon could have occupied other spacenoid colonies, de-Feddified them by arresting and/or firing all the public figures and employees with Feddie sympathies and connections and eventually integrated those colonies into the principality, but they weren't under ideal conditions. Some sacrifices had to be made.
I like how in ZZ there were civilians claiming that they were happy Haman was dropped a colony on a country they don't like since they're overpopulated anyways.
Seems like most of the people from the military brass to the civilians are sociopathic assholes.
>I like how in ZZ there were civilians claiming that they were happy Haman was dropped a colony on a country they don't like since they're overpopulated anyways.
If I remember correctly, those weren't just some random civilians, those were literally the Feddie government. The type of people that's been running the Earth Sphere for the past hundred years. And then people wonder why Zeon and Char did what they did.
You are remember the part about the military brass correctly, but you are failing to remember another scene in which civilians in an airport are talking about the positive results of a colony drop.
>implying that's a bad thing
