  I'm assuming the invasion plan came between the diplomacy and the
world-destruction. :-)

  None of the good-guy Gundam pilots are newtypes; Garrod, Witz, and
Roybea aren't, and Jamil's lost his powers. Thus none of them can control
bit mobile suits or activate the satellite system without Tiffa's
intervention. (The Double X has been programmed with data from Jamil's
old Gundam, so it can simulate newtype powers to contact the lunar power

  As for the Virsago and Ashtaron, they're new mobile suits created after
the war by the New Federation. It's unclear whether they have flash
systems, but even if they did, the Frost brothers couldn't use them...
