The ones I listed in the previous post that you claimed didn't count, because they were actually the evil plan of Clark's bosses instead.

Nope. To the people in power in those countries, what they were doing made (to them at least) perfect sense. Because here's the thing. Right now, we know of one person in the entire Earth Alliance that was connected to the Mysterions. Just one. I don't doubt there were others here and there that knew they were working for someone else, but still, it'd be a handful at most.

Everyone else, the Night Watch, the Psi Corps, the politicians, the corrupt businessmen that chose to back Clark, the hate groups like the Church of Man, and, worst of all, the good people blinded by propaganda, lies and fear. They weren't working towards self-destructing. They believed they were working towards victory. The fact they were wrong, and the fact that the good guys beat them when the time came, doesn't make them a joke. It simply means the heroes were better.

And that's where you and I disagree. Because to me, if they were incompetent, they wouldn't have lasted as long as they did against a superior foe.
