DrEvazan: ...i am able to see that what Anakin did to the innocent Tusken women and children was an atrocity far worse than what was done to his mother. How so? They got off a lot easier than she did--and she had not done anything to them first. Were they tied to a pole and beaten to death slowly? No. ...would they be justified if they killed Anakin and then went on to slaughter the rest of a village of humans, women and children included, just because they were angry? Only if Anakin, without any prior provocation, tied one of the women to a pole and slowly tortured her to death for kicks. The_Abstract: You must keep missing the part where he regrets his actions. He does keep missing that part.
