The Cybernetic Council was Not Amused when the Shang attacked Earth. That strike brought China and the Western Alliance to War with each other, and soon sucked the Russians in as well. And that could further divide humanity, harming their long term vision of uniting Earth. The Council would not allow that to happen, so the Council went to War for the first time since the Cybernetic Wars that formed them. They built warships, starfighters, and ground troops, and attacked the Shang with everything they had and were. Their goal was simple. Drive the Shang from Earthspace forever. They devoted the industrial might of their entire civilization to that simple goal. Failure was not an option.
