Indeed, we are ALL victims of the Orokin.
We are victims of their wars and even their very way of existing.
The Sentients have made their choice and committed to a path of actions that will exterminate all life in the Origin System that is, not only Orokin, but that which was designed by Orokin hand, as well as that which is Orokin by ancestry.
This includes not just the Chidren of the Zariman Ten-Zero.
It includes The Entrati, The Myconans, The Solarans, The Ostron, and many others.
You speak of an "overly militaristic policy", and that the Sentients "are potenial[sic] allies"...
Yet that alliance is not OURS to seek, but THEIRS.
It is THEY that refuse to ask for it,
It is THEY that instead... choose to invade.
In turn, as it was our duty to end the Orokin oppression, so too our responsibility is defend.
We have chosen the mantle of protectors.
Not just of those freed from the Orokin, but those who have peacefully flourished in their absence.
And I will not abandon Konzu.
I will not abandon Eudico and Teshin.
I will not abandon Palladino and Maroo and Darvo.
I will not now, nor ever, abandon Clem or any other, to be slaughtered in the the name of Single Minded Judgement and the Scorn of an already defeated Villainy.
So seek your Parlay if you must.
I wish you luck,
But remember your Honor when the carnage begins with the spilling of innocent blood by Sentient hand.
