. said:Because, as has been explained to you repeatedly, they didn't fight until they were forced to PAY for their gimmedats. And they didn't even fight en masse until the French, the Dutch and the Spanish jumped in to fight for them.

Like today's Tea Party, they were perfectly happy leeching off other people's wealth and enjoying free gubmint services. Until the bill for their free ride came due, then they threw tantrums and issued threats. But they weren't willing to fight their own fights, they waited until the French stepped in to do it for them.

. said:Ah, but Tolkien's answer muddies the waters even more.

So the eagles were minor gods, just as Gandalf and the other wizards were...okay.

And it is obvious that the Major Gods had an interest in seeing the Ring destroyed and Sauron pimp-sticked like a $2.00 'ho', (otherwise why would they have resurrected Gandalf and given him a promotion?).

This beggars the question of why the Major Gods would send at least one minor god (Gandalf), to be their divine hit-man, but balk at using OTHER minor gods, (the eagles), except as avian "lifeboats"?

Makes Tolien's Valar seem a bit thick in the head, if you ask me...or Tolkien got wrapped up in exploring Middle Earth and didn't "close all the circles"...certainly forgivable in a work as majestic and broad as LOTR.

If you want to destroy the ring, strap Frodo to an eagle and send the whole flock soaring about south by east and east by south until they can dash in and dump the goods.
Meanwhile send the Nine Walkers out as a diversion...draft a short elf or strategically shave a dwarf to pass for a hobbit to attarct the Nazgul and shit.

Or to REALLY fuck with the whole deal, trundle Frodo and his Goid-damned ring onto a ship and send him into the West...let the fucking Gods deal with that shit.

I Am The Beast



Because the Valar didn't always agree. Gandalf felt sympathy for the mortal races so he was bending rules and interfering in order to help them.

Serious, do you have Downs?



They fought when they were asked to start paying.

Like Gandalf says, if he fucks with the ring Sauron will know it's location and will take it. Flying the Eagles with the ring into Mordor is basically handing it to Sauron.

Don't know if that link mentions this but the eagles weren't just big birds. They were messengers of the Valar. They probably didn't want to touch the ring for the same reasons that Gandalf didn't.

It's the Fell beasts that would have eaten the eagles.

They were trying to destroy the ring in secret. The eagles would have been KFC within minutes of crossing the border.
