You see, all that time Mars had watched as earth burned. During the aftermath of Redweek, right before the Brand Wars, the Mars community was shocked into creating an organised and peaceful government, which they called Mars Nation. They used the image of The Pioneer flying across the moon as their flag. They were an effective nation, they discovered the truth of the chief’s murder, and that in fact there were secret Yahoogle documents to colonise Mars. They tried time after time to alert Earth to their happenings, but the earthlings’ inner beast had seemingly possessed the entire planet. Again history would tell us that without the Moon, our own human bodies (made up mostly of water) would not be absent effect. The world had literally gone mad, turned into Lunatics, if you please.
In Yahoogle’s secret documents about taking over Mars, it had one scenario where the earth was already lost to the oceans and mankind was no more. The scenario’s aim was to re-nourish earth, and mentioned several missiles loaded with the same fertiliser used to re-nourish Mars. Only these missiles also happened to be nuclear, the nuclear explosions were intended to clear a region to be ready for re-nourishment.
The scenario’s codename was Phoenix.
And it was going to auto-execute if the fifth Pioneer space vessel did not leave earth. It was possible to deactivate Phoenix, but the Mars Nation pushed the scenario forward five years, and manually executed Phoenix on the evening of the intended launch of the fourth space vessel.
And there you have it, what that one image means to me. The story that image hides under its simple, humble appearance. Are those the facts? Is that what really happened? I dunno, why don’t you Yahoogle it?
