Well Estonia is a "partner" already, and you have Poland, Czech Rep. and
Hundary as full members of NATO. Truth is stranger than fiction.

But then having the Zeon Republic allying with the Titans is pretty akin
to having the Socialist Government of post-coldwar Russia allying with (or
even kowtowing to) the Skinheads of USA and Germany.

Pretty similar to US and USSR nabbing Nazi and Japanese scientists and
engineers and granting them immunity from warcrimes and crimes against

Won't it be a setup similar to the Manhattan project?

This GOT TO BE published on the web, if you won't put it on your site, I

No way dudes! They were rushing to bring the Alex to Amuro for Op Star 1,
it just doesn't make sense that the Alex's armor is inferior to RX-78-2 in
any aspect. LT armor is so crucial to Amuro's performance and survival
that if a regularly armored Alex were to show up on the frontline, Amuro
would have laughed his head off.
