Pointless Question #17

One of your ally's key strategic planets has fallen to the evil invading warrior race guys. They sent a fleet of ships and dropped off a million troops to do the job. How the hell did they conquer a whole planet with so little manpower?

The entire planet, aside from having a single society (it's a cowboy world this time), also has a single leader. Send those millions to that one small island and the guy surrenders. It helps if the evil invaders have some super massive monster, if only to give the good guys a single easy target to take out to easily take back the entire planet in one battle. Form Voltron!

It has something to do with Magnets. I'm sure of it.

For the same reason that wars are won by a small commando led by Chuck Norris, or, in more recent times, by Arnold Schwarzenegger alone.

You see, you figure out what factor you need to multiply the Vietcong, or the KGB, by to get a whole planet of bad guys, and you multiply the hero by that same factor, and there you have your small but sufficient invasion force!

It was through Chuck Norris being inhabited by the ghost of Bruce Lee and causing all of the enemie's heads to explode from that much concentrated awesomeness and martial arts.

Indeed, Chcuk Norris was INTELLIGENTLY DESIGNED to do those kicks.
