comment What exactly was Delacort's plan?
Indeed it is easier to accept when I think of it as metaphor for documents like the Constitution, and those documents' propensity to be bent and twisted by elite leaders while the masses are powerless. Not to get political or anything LOL :)

comment Why don't they try to change the past?
The scientists wanted to kill Cole because he was rebelling, trying to stay in 1997. They also wanted to know who spread the virus. They suspected Cole was holding that info from them, so they tried to trick him into pointing a gun at that person. Actually Cole didn't know, but then Railly ran up and told him it was redhead guy. Jose heard Railly say it, and immediately faded away into crowd. Within minutes, the gun Jose gave Cole caused security to shoot and kill Cole.

They also needed Cole to end up dead, so someone had to kill him -- presumably not a time-traveler. Hence the gun was some ancient pistol that probably wouldn't work effectively -- but would still cause security to shoot Cole.

answering "why did they give Cole a gun" I think it was to see who he would go after. See this Q&A: movies.stackexchange.com/questions/4216/…

Sure seemed not just Patel but all other leaders were opposed to her heavy-handed approach, judging by unanimous vote against her tactics. And what was to stop Armadyne guy from just making himself leader? But most of all, I just can't believe that world's most powerful humans would let some computer tell them who to take orders from. I agree with your answer -- I just can't believe the filmmakers floated such a weak premise.

comment Why did Jose give Cole the gun?
@Mistu4u once Cole made it clear he wanted to stay in the past, the scientists wanted him dead -- probably to preserve the timeline. Although it might have just been to punish him: Cole himself says something like "this isn't about the virus, this is about following orders."
