side note, everyone in those movies is way too blasé about the growth acceleration thing. all those clones being sent into combat are like, ten years old or something, and there isn't even a whiff of the sense that this state of affairs is even ethicall shaky.


Well, sir, you're forgetting the powerful moment when Obi-Wan stared blankly at the morally horrific sight of the army of disposable ten year old men secretly ordered by a dead guy and said something to the effect of "Hmm." or "Oh" or "...."

Not to mention the scene at the end of AOTC where he discusses the matter with Yoda and concludes, to paraphrase the wise Jedi, "Well, we won the battle thanks to them, so, y'know, whatever."

Besides, why should we get our panties in a bunch over something like the moral duties of Jedi? After all, "Only a Sith deals in absolutes."

... which is, of course, an absolute statement.

So I guess Obi-Wan was evil all along, which explains his moral laxity.

So, you see the genius of George Lucas at work here.

...Okay, I'm physically ill after that brief round of playing "devil's advocate" for PT apologists. I'm gonna go lie down now.
