Over in the Colonies the government has no reason to prepare to go to war. They could wipe you all out with the press of a button, they can track your every move and everything you send across the internet can be tracked.
They have no reason to prepare for war against you because preparation is not needed.
Do they have to prepare to go to war with the beasts? No, there is no reason. One is a titan the other a small animal. Preparation is for those that need the strength.The Colonies do not.
