Subject: Open your eyes people, the government is lying to you.

Don't worry, you're still your mom's favorite Bnet member.

You may recall that some time ago, an organization against our great government destroyed one of the greatest structures to ever be built. When it was destroyed, people from all over came together in mourning. After we honored those who died for no reason, we had only one thought on our minds: Revenge.

I am, of course, talking about the Death Star.

Be warned, what you're about to see may disturb you. As you can see from this video, the Death Star was hit in its thermal exhaust port by two proton torpedoes, which supposedly traveled into the main port of the Death Star's primary weapon, destroying it. Or at least that's what Palpatine wants you to think.

The Empire has the largest navy the galaxy has ever seen. Palpatine constructed it it that way so that no one could ever appease the Empire. When you think of the Imperial Navy, what first comes to mind? A Star Destroyer of course. The blueprints and layout for this glorious ship can be seen here.

As seen in this image, the thermal exhaust port for the Star Destroyer is just below the Subsidiary Reactor. Just look at all of those automatic laser turrets defending it. Not only that, but the exhaust port is significantly smaller than the one that was on the Death Star. But here's the catch: The exhaust port on the Death Star was exerting the same amount of ion exhaust as a Star Destroyer. So why make it bigger? So a proton torpedo can fit through it.

Notice the Death Stars destruction from the video before, then look at this Death Star layout. You'll see that the thermal exhaust port is on the North side of the space station. As seen in this blueprint for the Death Star, the thermal exhaust port goes directly to the main reactor. However in most stations, exhaust ports had a series of chambers before reaching the main reactor. This fail-safe system would have prevented such a detonation. Why have a direct layout?

Additionally, the blueprints tell us that the main reactor is directly in the center of the station. Had two proton torpedoes hit it, the station would have imploded, not exploded. Notice the hollow canisters are placed inside the main columns. These canisters are the perfect size for thermal detonators, used for demolition projects. Why put these here? Because the Death Star was a controlled demolition! The Empire placed explosives inside to make it look like the rebellion destroyed it! But we're smarter than that. We know only those controlled explosives could have caused an explosion rather than an implosion. Their is no way one X-Wing fighter could take out that entire station, no way! Plus, how convenient is it that Darth Vader just so happens to be in a TIE Fighter when the whole thing goes down? Give me a break.

But why would Palpatine lie to us? He knew the rebellion was against the Empire, but he knew that sympathy would be generated for them within the Senate if he just attacked them. Then again, that didn't stop him from attacking the Tantive IV. And so he destroyed the Death Star and convinced everyone that it was the rebellion, to get everyone on his side against the rebels. Then he could invade Hoth and supposedly take out the rebels, who all of a sudden have "weapons of mass destruction". Coincidentally, Hoth just happens to be rich in oil, a major necessity to the Empire.

Last week, a group of Bothan spies raided Palpatine's palace and discovered several bank statements and documents that prove Palpatine is paying starship commanders who saw the Death Star blow to keep quiet. Nearly fifteen commanders, including Captain Needa are on the payroll. Many Bothans died to bring us this information. Why would he be doing this hmmm?

And what about the Jedi? Their peaceful religious teaching always promoted fair peace. But what did Palpatine do? He blamed this wonderful culture for trying to overthrow democracy and kills them! Palpatine is just killing anyone who opposes him!

Open your eyes people.

As a representative of the empire and the sith I can assure you this man is lying. And to prove it, I'll give you all cookies.

Is the man who thinks he can.

We can just build a new one.
It can't blow up again...can it?

The destruction of the Death Star is proof that galactic terrorism has spread to unfathomable proportions.

You've been brainwashed by the Empire's propoganda. You're telling me that even with the force on his side, Palpatine can't find Luke Skywalker? We're talking about one guy. One guy, hiding out in some swamp in Dagobah.

I'm glad to see at least some of you see the light of reason. Our so called "Leaders" try to convince us that the rebels have the Force...

You know, I was on my way to the Death Star that morning. Aw man, if it hadn't been for that space traffic...

I'm extremely lucky. I was one of the very few to escape the death star.

Glad to hear some good news amidst this horror.

how did the rebellion come to posses the original X-wing prototypes anyway?

They were stored in a secure Imperial facility.
Obviously the entire thing was staged!

  • 02.02.2011 11:30 AM PDT

Death Star was an inside job!

And the stormtroopers "Just so happen" to go on break just as the rebels steal them? Are we really supposed to believe that?

Yeah, we still believe in all the things that we stood by before.
I know, to everything we've seen here, maybe even more.
I know we're not the only ones and we were not the first.
And unapologetically we stand behind each word.

I was planet-side when it happened. Good thing my helmet had those dark eye holes or the explosion would have blinded me.
