Yes, but no one decided to destroy Naboo's cities from orbit and clean up the mess with rampaging attack bombers.
I can't help but wonder if Palpatine ever considered doing that just for the hell of it though.
His clone did in the comics with world destroyers. But did not attack Naboo. Also, Imperial/Victory class Star Destroyers could attack from orbit.
That is all off topic now.
But we do see the ruthlessness of the Secret Police headed by Gimleh who is like a certain Nazi (I do not mean Hitler), who did that same thing, since he headed the Gestapo. I am really interested in what Melda was doing and what she will do next.
