~ Major General Armstrong: Future Fuhrer?, Is Arakawa setting up for something HUGE here? ~

You know, I have had this thought in the back of my head ever since chapter 74 (or something like that... the one where Gen. Armstrong comes to Central and takes over Raven's post.)
Is Arakawa setting up to have her become the next Fuhrer? Might explain some of the animosity between her and Mustang.

We can all be pretty certain that Bradley will be exposed for what he is, AND that his forces will fall by the end of the series, so it is logical to set up some sort of succession strategy. I don't think that Arakawa would have an inexperienced thirty-something like Mustang actually achieve this lofty goal. He is not even close to being top-brass in the military, so it would make very little sense. Now, Armstrong on the other hand, has the experience and rank necessary to take over a leadership position over the Amestrian military forces. I mean, she DID pretty much reign supreme of Briggs for how many years. I always got the impression that no one from Central really screwed with the soldiers up there. (But then again- who in thier right mind would want to screw with Gen. Armstrong?)

Perhaps, if she does assume the ultimate leadership role, she would appoint Mustang and his crew as her aides. That is supposing Mustang redeems himself in her eyes by the end of the manga.

Like I said in the AB ones. Her choice in uniform definately gives a clue. But I feel the same sort of animosity towards the General, as Mustang gets from others. When she walked into that meeting, no one looked very happy... But Mustang is too inexperienced, and has a lot to do before he can give himself to that job. But he's a main character, and he'll wind up probably getting the job in the end, unless something crazy happens. Though I'm rooting for Armstrong in the meantime! WoOt!
Though maybe Mustang would be happy with just a lot of power, and doesn't need to be Fuhrer. that way he can still be the fun, social guy we love. And maybe even start a family?!?!? gasp!

*Shudders at the thought of Mustang actually settling down*
Imagine if he and Riza finally tied the knot and had kids together.
I give you this visual... Riza potty training.
I wonder what caliber weapon she would use for that.

Maybe he should be Fuhrer just to avoid all of that...

Slightly off-topic. I really want Izumi and Armstrong to meet eventually.... GAWd, that'd interesting.

I think the conversation would go more along the lines of:

"Roy-- I've been thinking, and it's about time we get little Roy Jr. out of those diapers. Let the potty-training begin."

"Uhh... honey? I really think you ought to let ME handle this one..."


(If you desire RoiAi crack, just go here:
http://www.fullmetal-alchemist.com/forums/...hp?showtopic=35
It's probably the largest thread on the boards.)

This does make me think of that one chapter where Armstrong first meets Raven, and she mentions something about how 'most women her age already have children.' I def. see her as more of a career woman than a mother though-- which is why I can see her character being a suitable fuhrer.

Armstrong is a smart woman.
Of course I can see the Armstrong clan being a bit overly fussy as to who would be worthy enough to sustain their "Traditions" and the all important "Armstrong Family Line".

Who says ANYONE's going to get the job? smile.gif Remember, at the end of the anime/in the movie, the government had become a democracy of sorts, and while the manga and anime certainly have headed in different directions, Arakawa-san had sway over the story arc of the anime.
This being the case, perhaps the manga is going to end in somewhat the same manner, if not exactly. I'm already seeing correlations with the end of Chapter 76 and Episode 50 - you see what I mean?

If there is a position for a new leader of sorts open I think Roy will have a hard time running against her.

I wonder what she would do if it became a democracy. Mustang turned all emo in the movie, so what would it do to her?!?

Ah, yes. Though I'm really not seeing the Armstrong line continuing after this generation... Forgive me if anyone thinks differently... tongue.gif

Roy will definately have a hard time beating her for the position, that's for sure!

That's an interesting suggestion. Although Roy's been around in the manga since almost th beginning and Armstrong's relatively new, so we would expect that he would become Fuhrer simply because we know that's been his goal for a long time, who says Arakawa's going to do what we expect? Still, I'd still root for Roy if only because I want him to become Fuhrer. Whether he will or not is hard to tell at this stage. If he plays a very key role in overthrowing Bradley and Father, it might be that he would be promoted in recognition of that. Again, whether or not to Fuhrer remains to be seen.

Don't forget the youngest, Catherine. She could very well continue the Armstrong line.

Well, at the moment Olivier is probably the highest ranking official that isn't corrupt. She's infiltrated the Top Brass, and knows what she's dealing with from the information both Ed and Raven gave her. She's kept the soldiers of Briggs loyal to her and only her. I wonder what their plan is for their new General from Central. We'll see her enough by the end of the series to get a good take on her character, and where she's going. She is our insight as to what is going on at the top of the food chain, military-wise.

In addition to that-
Besides the Fuhrer, she's the highest ranking officer we know, right? Unless I'm forgetting someone...
Grumman was demoted, Raven's in concrete, and Hakuro's out of Central...
