Clone Wars' Onderon arc isn't about terrorism after all—it's about Anakin's slide toward darkness

On its face, it looks like yesterday's Clone Wars episode took the easy way out. After setting up a very risky proxy war and having the Onderon rebels practice terrorist tacts, the rebellion gets away with a clean martyrdom, and the Jedi once again function as pawns of the Republic. But none of it could happened if Anakin hadn't broken ranks with the Jedi to engage in a very shady—and highly illegal—arms deal. Spoilers ahead.
