  It was pretty drastic, but they were desperate at that point - after
all, Operation Lilac had already failed.

  They may have been dead already. About 99% of the human population was
killed in the 7th Space War, after all - it's just a question as to how
many of the spacenoid casualties were pre-colony drop. ;-)

  There are at least two Gundam X units, and at least one of each of the
others. But I'd assume there weren't more than a few of them to go
around. After all, they're designed for newtype pilots, and those are
exceptionally rare.

>3) Is there any history at all on the previous six Space Wars? =P (I doubt
>it, but I gotta try. ^_~)

  Not really, but I'd note that when Gundam X aired, there had been six
Tomino-created UC stories (First Gundam, Z, ZZ, CCA, F91, and V). Hm...
