Well it looks like this argument is back on. I for one am completely stunned that anyone would ever think that Palpatine would get rid of his beautiful clone army. They are completely loyal to only him, they make sure that the other aspects of the military are ran efficiently and they maintain order on all the planets in the galaxy. I don't care whats been written because one story contradicts what another story says and I don't care what George has said because of the same reason. Just put yourself in Palpy's shoes at the end of Ep.3 and ask yourself, Hmm do I keep my clone army or do I think Tatooine farmers can do a better job? Vote and give reasons for voting for it.
