First of all, I do not want to turn this into a discussion of how Bay sucks, how writers suck, or anything similar. Just last night I watched Battle of Los Angeles.Military reaction was pretty quick and they tried to hit aliens as hard as possible. In DOTM, when Decepticons take over Chicago and seal off the city, you don't really see much military presence. They sent few drones and at one point there are 2-3 jet fighters that try to get through, but are shot down. This made me think, if this were a real life event, wouldn't military be all over that place? I'm talking tanks,thousands of troops, AC-130's, stealth bobmers, etc, etc. Given the seriousness of the situation (i.e. Cybertron being teleported, Earth destroyed, humans enslaved), I think it's quite possible that the government would just consider nuking the whole place, killing everything and everybody in the city, but eventually saving the planet. I know the way it's done in the movie is so the story can go on, but what do you guys think realistically speaking? I doubt the US government (and rest of the world) would just sit there and watch behind screens.
