Several dozen military officers of various ranks and states resign their commissions over this fact as they believe it is asking for a war.

A dozen members of minority groups also resign and several parties call for immediate re-elections to readdress this potential powder keg.

C.E. 50 (2282 AD)

In order to obtain autonomy and trading independence for the PLANTs, Siegel Clyne and Patrick Zala form the political organization known as the Zodiac Alliance.

Blue Cosmos grows in strength. Its ranks expand to the hundreds of thousands, and persecution of Coordinators living on Earth intensifies. As a result, almost all Coordinators emigrate to the PLANTs.

Chairman Clyne makes secret arrangements to exchange imports of food and exports of manufactured goods with the United States of South America and the Oceania Union. Learning of these arrangements, the sponsor nations demand the dismissal of Chairman Clyne, the dissolution of the PLANT Supreme Council, and the complete renunciation of autonomy for the PLANTs. These demands are rejected by the PLANTs.

In response to the Mandelbrot Incident, ZAFT is reorganized under Patrick Zala's leadership, and combined with the PLANTs' domestic security operations to become a military organization equipped with mobile suits.

The other nuclear missiles are intercepted and the hijacked OES Theodore Roosevelt is recaptured by a response force that had been assembled when the nukes were discovered missing and had given chase to the invasion force to retrieve them.

During the battle, 23 mobile armor pilots are killed attempting to stop the nuclear missile attacks. The nuclear attack on Junius Seven also throws out debris that inflicts heavier losses on the attacking forces, moderates force an order through condemning the attack and holding responsible parties at fault for 'higher causalities caused by an ill advised attack' and are also charged according to the old Antarctica Treaty for war crimes. These elements are secretly relocated by their Blue Cosmos masters.

2.18 - At a national memorial for the Bloody Valentine victims, Chairman Clyne swears to resist the Earth Alliance to the very end, and offers to give trading preference to nations which decline to join the Alliance. The Oceania Union and the United States of South America accept Clyne's offer.

Also it is noted that the recently refitted Manhattan-class Battleship, exclusive till then to the AFSF, is more superior than ZAFT's Luarasia-class and can also carry up to 10 mobile suits thanks to space saving techniques and improvements over ZAFT's own ship borne Mobile Suit operations.

5.19 – The new Faithful-class Destroyer enters service, though the first units are given only to the AFSF Space Fleet, its quick construction and equal firepower to the Intel reported ZAFT Destroyer-N, soon sees it mass produced for both Federation Forces and OMNI Enforcer Fleets, replacing the now redesignated Drake-class Corvettes as the primary battle escort.

Skirmishes continue for almost a month, with neither side carrying out a decisive strike, and many of the space colonies of the L4 cluster are damaged during the fighting.

The Earth Forces deploy their new TS-MA04 Wildcat Mobile Armor into battle and it proves to be an ideal replacement for the older and aged Moebius.

SF-15 Space Eagle is also deployed as well and proves to be a good replacement for the aged SF-14 Spacecat.

6.20 – ZAFT forces mount a counter attack in North Africa and recapture Alexandria by naval invasion, but by then it is clear that the Federation has fallen back due to heavy losses in Western Europe and the beginning of the Battle of Britain, the new F-9A Thunderchief is introduced into limited service, but is deployed to Britain to replace F-7D Tinfish losses.

7.1 The OMNI Enforcer and the Federation Forces jointly introduce the Ball Mobile Pod for fire support missions, while given the monikers that put it into a negative light, it is cheap and mass production friendly and proves to be a huge success with engineering units and pilots do like its greater maneuverability over the GINN as well as longer range.

7.12 - The Earth Alliance abandons Nova after heavy losses prove to be too hard to replace, and the fighting comes to an end. Both sides cease major military operations, and although small skirmishes continue on Earth and in space, the overall war enters a stalemate with only the Battle of Britain ongoing.

The mobile suit development project proposed by Commodore Halberton, commander of the Alliance's 8th Lunar Fleet, is reexamined as a means of breaking this deadlock. With the assistance of Morgenroete, development of the G series and the mobile suit carrier Archangel begins in earnest at Heliopolis.

9.20 - Athrun Zala graduates from ZAFT's military academy. He is assigned to the Le Creuset team along with Yzak Joule, Dearka Elsman, and Nicol Amalfi.
