Actually, Luna, I've been thinking...remember how the cake was supposed to explode at the end of Extras? What if THAT helped set it off? Someone there thought the blast was an assassination attempt that failed?

 that wouldn't be probably, it's too soon, the extras need time to create some military weapons.

Like I said; HELPED start. Not startED, but helped to start it.
And they have the Mils on their side, remember? THEY are the ones who would be doing the fighting.

Yeah, the Mils would be doing the fighting, but wouldn't the Extras be the ones doing the planing and be like the generals?

Thats what I was thinking yes. And they'd provide the Mils with information and vehicles and bases. Symbiotic relationship.

Why did the Mils decide to side with the Extras?

Probably after they decided to leave earth to escape Tally's group. They would want to take advantage of the mind rain to expand what their clique could do, but they couldn't do that while Tally was watching over their shoulders and could blow up their stuff. So, they would leave earth to get out of her range. Go to the moon, perhaps. And then they'd form a trading partnership with the Extras, and from there on out it would go further to symbiotic. The Extra's get everything that's needed in space, and the Mils make sure it gets there.

Makes sense. The Extras would be warry of Tally for what she did (you do NOT just FORGIVE that much destruction), and they'd want to make sure their supplies were safe. The Mils can do that because of what they know of Rusty history and tactics (something that no one else knows anything about), and they're wary of Tally too for obvious reasons.

Obvious reasons? Such as she's an insane bitch?

An insane bitch with a hard-on hatred for anything even RESEMBLING Rusty style. Hence her prevalence for blowing up shit.

Honestly, by blowing things up she's kind of returning to Rusty roots.

Something that I noticed myself. Here she is, proclaiming to be the "new Special Circumstances", and the majority of her things involve blowing stuff up or kidnapping people. Sounds more like a dictator and secret police than anything else.
