Avatar uses a lot of mirrored symboligy in its core story, The ground attack would certanly "reflect" on our history in the use of Calvary aganst our own native peoples.
When Quaritch first attacks home tree he does so with aircraft only, in doing so he also kills Neytiri's father, male tribe leader "Etukan" (Wes Studi)
Jake makes a deep inner ethical choise that comes from his heartfelt undertanding when he decides then and now to stand with and lead the Na"vi aganst his own people in a Counter attack, from this moment on the battle becomes an epic
live or die effort supported by "All" the Na'Vi clans as Quaritch targets
the core Heart and soul of all the Na'Vi people (The tree of souls) this takes the battle
to a deeply personal ethics level seen and reflected on by the cinema audience on many levels
in a way that is rarely seen in the art of symbolic storytelling.
in short the ground battle was nessary to drive home the story and reflect on the true scope of person to person warfare
in both our past and present history happening "today"

Greed is part of humanity as is revenge. Quaritich was injured his first day on Pandora (whether he provoked the Na'vi to attack him is unknown or not). However he is a proud man just as humanity is a proud species. We like to fight for what we want and believe in. The humans in Avatar (RDA at least) believed they were better than the Na'vi. They saw them as inferior and is that surprising? We have had racism in the past among our own species. All in all; humanity will be what it is which isn't always pretty or even compatible with the Na'vi's beliefs and views. So tell me; was humanity and the RDA completely wrong in how they acted as it was their very nature? You seem like an intelligent man so I seek an answer.
