[[WMG: The Komarran Massacre was secretly engineered by Emperor Ezar to smear Aral Vorkosigan.]]

* Ezar knew that it would make Komarr more restive, not less, but he was more worried about Aral. Ezar was afraid that Aral's policies would produce a planetary BecauseYouWereNiceToMe, giving Aral a political power base on Komarr.
