Without air force (Jillian's air force was a match for Wanda's) they're seriously lacking in attack power. An all-out attack on Wanda may leave the archers out of ammo and the casters out of juice on GK's turn. With no air force of their own, Jetstone might seriously injure that group but is not likely to wipe them out--remember Parson's gloom and doom calculations were including Jillian in the attack. If Jetstone croaks Wanda it's over, but that's not likely to happen.
No, based on everything that has been said, Jetstone has more than enough anti-air troops to wipe out the dwagons
The Decryption however, may even the fight out

Meanwhile, Jillian is liked because? ... If love is blind (but I repeat, why do so many people suffer from the same blindness?!) then respect at least should be earned, and a good chunk of what Jillian is now doing is only possible because of Don's and Charlie's massive support. Any idiot can be a good captain in good weather, as Faq has had, and as Jillian is.
You really can't see what Jillain does that neither of them do?
If you look at the reasons why each person likes Jillian its obvious why charlie and Stanley do not get the same treatment
- Jillian is NOT actively looking to conquer anyone else other than Stanley who everyone else hates... this is why Charlie(mistakenly) and Stanley are hated
- Jillian appears to be very competent on the battlefield... sure this is actually charlie's work, but nobody else but charlie knows that... Stanley however is an idiot
- Jillian is willing to allow herself to be used by others... she's grown to dislike Don, and never trusted charlie, but she is willing to let them use her for their own ends... this is how she earns favor from Charlie and Don... Hell in charlie's case, Jillian is giving him his only shot at getting back into the royals favor
- Jillian may be self serving but she is not out to intentionally screw anyone over.. She may be leaving at this moment, but she is leaving under the belief that Jetstone and Haggar can take care of themselves... Charlie however, not so much, he can be a real pain to deal with
Some may hate Jillian for being selfish and leaving when she could contribute more, but as far as everyone else is concerned she already did A LOT to help save Jetstone... Ending GK's turn saved jetstone and gave them every chance they needed to stop the dwagons... Trem nor vinnie are gonna begrudge Jillian for leaving after doing so much to help them... Don and Charlie however are probably pulling some hairs at the moment since they don't like it when things don't work as planned, but even then they won't completely hate her; that is unless everything at spacerock DOES turn sour
