the Stranded may be a threat to the COG a lot of the time, but at the same time, they are out there unprotected territory, fighting Locust off and apparently succeeding as they have been around for 15 years and are still thriving.
It just makes me wonder that the COG hate the stranded so much, yet if it wasn't for Stranded, the Locust might have killed the COG off years ago. The Stranded are few on enemy territory fighting them where Locust are at. Some Stranded are even living IN the Hollow, aslo fighting them there.
I don't know, I just found it funny this little fun fact.
