Re: Reunification - makes no sense?

On the topic of "only" 2000 troops. To quote a Klingon proverb from the books "A thousand throats may be cut in one night by a running man."

Stop thinking Infantry and start thinking Special Forces. Striking from surprise, 2000 highly trained commandos could take and hold enough key "choke points" in the planetary network (High Council, VDF Headquarters, planetary energy management facilities, etc) to effectively hold the planet at least long enough for reinforcements to arrive.
