Hua Qingxin's eyes widened when he heard this. He didn't expect to be pushed out by his trusted buddy. "More and more people are getting implicated. What is the point of this?" Gu Dongyang frowned as he whispered to Yang Mingzhi. "I'm sure Big Leader Li already knows who the betrayer is. There's another reason for him to put on this show." Yang Mingzhi sighed. "What do you mean?" Gu Dongyang was puzzled. "He wants to remove everyone around Ling Yi. He wants Ling Yi to understand that everything he has is a joke. He wants to destroy Ling Yi." Yang Mingzhi had already understood the intention behind Li Lanfeng's actions. "Ling Yi is too simple-minded but his personality is not bad. Plus, he is regiment commander's… is this too heartless?" Gu Dongyang felt that they shouldn't be too harsh on Ling Yi. "That's precisely why Big Leader Li is so ruthless. Ling Yi is a part of regiment commander's family. If he remains so simple-minded, he will be used by regiment commander's enemies. For instance, this current issue. His intention was good and his principles are right but it's just not the right thing to do in the overall picture. Luckily, our regiment commander prepared beforehand so we didn't get punished, but if he didn't, you will probably be stuck in Planet General. You might not be able to come back. Our mecha clan won't be able to become an independent army too." Yang Mingzhi was a gentle person but his experience in political battles told him that people like Ling Yi posed a great danger to the survivability of a clan. Gu Dongyang agreed with what Yang Mingzhi said. The uncomfortable feeling he had towards Li Lanfeng's actions melted away. No matter how despicable Big Leader Li was, he did it for the sake of Lingtian. Lingtian currently must remain low-key. Before they officially became an independent army, nothing must happen within the mecha clan. To achieve this, they needed to get rid of uncertain elements. Even if these uncertain elements were innocent, they had to do it. "What a pity to those young men. They are not bad." Gu Dongyang sighed.
