Umm. The Galactic Empire and Palpatine was obviously evil. I never said it wasn't evil. Please understand that. Are you saying that the civil war (not american civil war with abe lincoln-but the galactic civil war in star wars, rebel alliance vs empire), was a just war, because of Alderaan? What's done was done. Think of any nation. Every nation, or many at least, did terrible atrocities in the past. Does that justify starting a war over it? Many quadrillions of galactic citizens. The rebels were fighting the Sith even before they destroyed Alderaan. The Jedi had a plan to hunt down and wipe out the Sith, just to bring balance to the force. The prophecy of the Chosen One was made even before the Sith built the death star. Please respond to this. Mace windu had no idea about saving alderaan when he went to go arrest Palpatine and stop the opression of the Sith from returning. The Sith and Jedi were enemies, long before the Death Star. It wasnt just the death star.
