But Prime, along with the rest of the Autobots, had of course just been banished from Earth by the government. So what were his options? He could have decided NOT to concoct a secret plan for them to stow away in a booster rocket, in which case he and the rest of the Autobots would have been destroyed in the Starscreem attack. In which case the Decepticons would have won, and there'd have been a far more than just a bit of human 'collatoral damage'.



I liked Optimus's show of strategery there. It's like the entire theme of the first movie "no sacrifice, no victory" if humans are stupid enough to dismiss their only means of preotection, they deserved whatever they got. Like Optimus said, they finally saw what the Decepticons would do to earth without the Autobots. Optimus let them get a taste of what the Decepticons where soliciting and then shut the whole thing down to try to teach earth a lesson. I bet the next time an evil alien race tells them to exile their protors, they won't listen.
