Padmé Amidala: They have, Senator Naberrie, but the negotiations failed through no fault of the ambassadors. Naboo is under attack. The Separatist forces have not only blockaded the planet, but our capital city is in ruins. I ask for reinforcements to fight this battle.
Sola Naberrie: My apologizes, Your Majesty, but the Senate is aware of Count Dooku’s actions. He hasn’t just attacked Naboo, but six other star systems on the Outer Rim. These systems are not members of the Republic, but they, too, have requested intervention. And the Senate itself is bogged down in bureaucracy. The Republic has no standing army to fight a war.
Padmé Amidala: So we’re on our own?
Sola Naberrie: I’m very sorry, Your Majesty. The Republic is simply unprepared.
Obi-Wan Kenobi: Padmé?
