The '''Bombing of Mars''' was the pivotal event that led to the [[Earth Alliance Civil War]]. It began when the [[Mars Provisional Government|Martian government]] refused to implement martial law as ordered by [[President of the Earth Alliance|President]] [[Morgan Clark|Clark]]. In response, Clark ordered airstrikes against [[Mars]]. A squadron of [[Thunderbolt]] [[Starfuries]] was sent to the surface with orders to bomb civilian targets. Despite pleas over the radio from below, the Starfuries launched their missiles, killing hundreds of innocent civilians.

In response to these atrocities, the colonies of [[Proxima III]] and [[Orion VII]] severed their ties to the [[Earth Alliance]] and declared independence. This prompted Clark to send fleets to several outposts and colonies, including [[Babylon 5]], to prevent them from seceding; in Babylon 5's case, this backfired, as it prompted Captain [[John Sheridan]], outraged at the bombing and concerned about the safety of Babylon 5's residents and the looming [[Second Shadow War]], to declare independence himself.<ref>[[Severed Dreams]]</ref>
