He doesn't count, he wasn't confident enough of his facts in his post.

3 people already said that, was there any point in your post apart from attempting to make yourself look clever at somebody else's expense?

Yeah, no. The guy's name is Palpatine. Sidious was his given Sith name. That's why he was Emperor Palpatine, and not Emperor Sidious.

**** you.
DROID DOES.

Born in 82 BBY on the planet Naboo to the aristocratic clan House Palpatine, he was eldest son and heir to the noble Cosinga Palpatine and his wife, a family he grew to hate. Palpatine discovered the Sith at a young age as a collector of dark side artifacts.

A combination of diplomacy and more sinister means, aye. Palpatine surely wanted to have it all, but on the other hand an Empire needs to have enemies or other outside threats to deal with. Manipulating the strongest neutral powers through diplomacy and covert actions could well be worth more than going in and conquering them. Make some neutrals feel pressed enough that they take to attacking Imperial shipping, then get good reputation for the Imperial Fleet that protects trade routes from "unknown raiders and pirates". Secretly present the neutrals with proof of their piracy operations and blackmail them on some other issue.

It would make Palpatine feel like the spider in the web, pulling the strands to make the whole galaxy dance to his smallest whims.
