During the preview, Wille bemoans that Nerv is violating the Vatican Treaty via use of Evas for military operations. Seriously, who cares? I find it pretty hypocritcal that Wille also uses Evas for military operations too.

One more thing the Vatican Treaty also retstricts as pointed out by Ritsuko in 2.0 that no more than 3 Evas may be operational in one country at time. However does Unit 01 powering the Wunder count as an operational Eva alongside Unit 02 and 08? If not Wille is withing guidelines to use another Eva on top of Unit 02 and 08.

Makes you wonder.
I watch and speculate.

I'd say that the whole point is kinda moot in general, because in the world of Q/Shin, the concept of nations hardly exists anymore

It's also hardly surprising that any group would be hypocritical in how it lets another handle what basically amounts to a WMD. Imagine how the U.S. would react to Iran working on WMDs, they'd get nuked in a heartbeat.

I think the Vatican Treaty has more clauses to it, and some involve not creating monstrosities without demi-human shapes, or giving them autonomous control. Probably something to prevent creating another species that could be harmful to mankind (like Eva Mk. 44A, that has become it’s own kind with organised swarms).

I personally love how 2.22 haters were bitching about how the Vatican Treaty was “an obvious plot contrivance in order to force Mari into the story,” and now still have to deal with this piece of actual world building having real narrative integrity to the story for both Shin Eva and the series as a whole despite no longer being needed to “force Mari into the story.”

That assumes this is more than a throwaway line.

Or it's possible that the line further reinforces the idea (Like a lot of things in Q) that nations/human civilizations do still exist and like Shinji, we hardly know anything about the world and we (or some people here) assume the worst.

For HIP to work, they would need a sufficient amount of alive people, right?

It's probably what those huge amounts of mp eva's are for (assuming they already got people in them), but still.
