Well, let's see. If a cabal of Fed officers devised a plan to create an
autonomous force with in (but separate from) the Federation military, they
would need an aggressor worthy of this action. The Delaz and Cima fleets
where readily available for that role. Next, they would need a symbol, so the
Gundam Project was suborned to fill this role. Delaz needed Axis to survive
Operation Stardust, but the Federation did not, so a treaty was made between
the Feds and Axis to allow Delaz an opportunity to retreat-in-order. Cima was
to be a sacrificial lamb, but she took an opportunity to reverse the dagger,
and turn on Delaz.

But with all this maneuvering, the facts remain that Delaz ordered Gato to
adjust the course of the colony drop so that it would hit a non-critical
location on Earth, several Fed officers know about Operation Stardust and did
nothing to stop it from happening, and the guy in charge of the Solar System
II ended up being in charge of the Titans.
