During the book, cause I finished reading the duology last week, she talks about the casualties of war. And it starts to affect her, because she sees so much pain and suffering of others. She can't bare it, but she goes through with it.

In the episode where she is the traitor, she talks about the very things. That the republic is sending an army of men to die for nothing, because the republic is failing. The jedi were meant to keep peace and not destroy it with war.

Not directly, but yes she does. She doesn't mention the battle or planet by name. But she is referring to it.

"I did it because I've come to realize what many people in the Republic have come to realize, that the Jedi are the ones responsible for this war. That we've so lost our way that we've become villains in this conflict. And we are the ones who should be put on trail. All of us! And my attack on the temple is an attack on what the Jedi have become, an army fighting for the dark side, fallen from the light that we once hold so dear. This Republic is failing, it is only a matter of time." That's what she said during the episode.

Does TCW ever add anything up to EU? Many TCW fans including me hated this. But I think it's just ok. Barriss is known to have thoughts beyond her age, she sees the war the way many adults couldn't, but her age can't react with this correctly. Too bad they couldn't show us her Redemption, and Luminara's interaction as planned.

Another thing ive been thinking about. This whole indecent makes the Jedi seem aware that that the war is a plot by the sith. It is but the jedi arn't supposed to be aware of it until ROTS.

To the public eye, the war is to reunite the systems that seceded from the Republic by either fierce negotiations or brutal military force. The entire clone war is an allegory for the American Civil War in which the southern states seceded from the union and formed a CONFEDERACY of independent states IE the Confederate States of Amrica to which the union responded with the GRAND ARMY OF THE REPUBLIC (yes that was many nicknames of the United states army during the civil war) to reclaim the southern states. If you think the war was fought over the controversy of slavery alone then your misslead, Much like the CIS, the confederate states of america advocated for states rights, that was their main issue, slavery was a sidenote. The Union didn't give two craps if they had slaves or not, they just wanted the states that seceeded back into the union, much like The Galactic republic wanted the planets that seceded from the GR back.

my main point is, to politicians and average citizens the war is to reunite the republic, not against evil or tyranny but to get what it had back. That's what the clone war is about. Yes the sith is involved with the confederacy and the jedi know but they are and should be portrayed as completely unaware that the entire war is staged and its stuff like this that TCW does which makes it seem like they're aware or almost aware and it just shouldn't be like that.

that's why i harbor such extreme hatred for this show because it doesn't portray the war how it was and should be portrayed.

Description

So in the 2008 clone wars series, They decided to make Bariss offee, probably one of the sweetest and most innocent of the Jedi, into a bloodthirsty traitor. IT DOES NOT WORK. It makes absolutely no sense and if they did ANY prior research before coming to this decision they wouldn't have chose Bariss as the traitor.

Starting with the battle of Drongar in 20 BBY (now with the new timeline i have no idea where that battle falls) Bariss took a non combat role. Staying behind the lines of battle with the RMSUs (Republic Mobile Surgical Units) she chose to pursue the ancient role of a Jedi Healer. She aided the RMSUs in healing and rehabilitating injured clone troopers so that they could then be sent back to the front lines.

How could someone with so much compassion in her heart and an ambition to give aid to those poor wounded souls in need of help, have acted in such a blatant treasonous way against the Jedi Order? how i ask you how?

My theory of course is, that the writers new they had to get rid of ahsoka quickly before the Disney takeover could be fully completed so they picked a random Jedi to framer her, doing no prior research. That's my theory but again its just a theory.
