Quote:You realize that attempting to sellout the Earth puts him WAY above the genocidal figures of anyone that's ever lived in the real world, right? You don't need to be a demagogue to be guilty of genocide; a worm-tongue can be one too. He knew the Builders' plan. He offered to place Earth on their chopping block. Even if he couldn't deliver, he wanted to, and it's slimy.
I don't find it that slimy. Earth is a threat to the interests of innumerable races. If Earth was in the reverse situation and got to decide whether to condemn another planet to destruction or let it continue to threaten our interests that planet wouldn't be spared.
I think most Americans are content to let Syria self destruct which I think disappointed our president. J-Son's job is to further his people's interests not do the right thing. The previous poster made a great point why sparing earth isn't in the universe's best interests.
