* So MARS managed to build an elaborate UnderwaterBase complete with 3 ICBMs without the Joes or anybody else noticing. It's only when they steal the nanites that the plot starts. What bugs me is that MARS never ''needed'' their super nanomachines for their plot to work. They would have caused global chaos just as well with ordinary nuclear warheads, which would have been far easier to steal, buy or even make themselves. Heck, they probably even had a few lying around if they really supplied 70some percent of the world's weapons.

* We've all been thinking about this the wrong way. It was ice and it was sinking... but ''that wasn't sea water!''

* VillainBall: Cobra has MindControl nanomites. Why use the big metal eating ones when they could just covertly infect the leaders of the world and start a nanomachine ZombieApocalypse/invasion of the body snatcherts? I mean, they're ''nanomachines'', a french kiss would be enough to spread the mind control.

** Once again not FridgeLogic, but there is a difference: The Team America example caused alot more damage than the bomb would have done while the GIJoe team managed to reduce the level of damage that would have resulted. * How didn't this get mentioned? At the end of the movie the cobra base is destroyed by falling ICE! WTH, last tme I checked ice can FLOAT!

* The nanotechnology can do practically anything someone wanted them to do. Warheads, building super soldiers, controlling minds, healing....The man who invented them and is working on them doesn't even use them to fix his scarred face or his damaged lungs. The warheads are also described as consuming metal and continuing onward from there as long as there is metal. Cobra must hurry to the Eiffel Tower in Paris to fire the rocket instead of shooting it anywhere else and haveing the nanobots eventually get to the Tower and consume it then.

* After the Joes are arrested in Paris, resident techy guy Breaker (played by Saïd Taghmaoui) starts speaking to the French officials in English. Yelling English, to be exact; like the way people normally talk to foreigners. His character had been speaking in a subtly French accent throughout the entire movie, so I just kind of assumed he was Moroccan. THEY SPEAK FRENCH IN MOROCCO. WHY IS HE NOT SPEAKING FRENCH TO THEM? ** Yes. He even begins in French before switching to English -it really doesn't make sense.

** The nanomites have a killswitch in them. A nuke doesn't. He can directly control what does and doesn't get destroyed by the nanomites. That gives him more power than just blowing things up.

* OK let me get this straight. An extremely powerful weapons manufacturer run by a CorruptCorporateExecutive who can develop nanomite weapons and pulse guns can't develop a few nukes. I mean do you have to rely on some stupid BatmanGambit i.e, (Sell Nanomachine weapons to NATO and steal them). For Destro's money and toys he can develop some actual nukes, blow that over Paris or some other City and takeover the World under the fear of Nuclear Terrorism.

\n\n*** Storm Shadow shot one of the warheads at the Eiffel Tower in Paris to display their power, then they only had three left. The other three were used to target Beijing, Moscow, and Washington DC. Snake Eyes shot down the Beijing warhead and Ripcord shot down the Moscow and Washington warheads.

*** That seems to be the case. When they're getting away in the sub, Baroness runs out of charges for its pulse cannon after only a few shots.
