A lot of high command in EarthForce probably felt the peacemaking mission was their best hope.
I understand a peacemaking mission was their best hope but when that failed, Sheridan was sent back to Earth and you don't hear a peep from him ever again until the war ended 2 years later?? I find that hard to believe. I mean you have the one commander who was able to find a way to beat the Minbari and he isn't put in a position to try to find other ways to beat them?? Was it just because he failed the peacemaking mission which wasn't really his fault either?

As for Kosh, he'd probably had the whole story from Valen, back in the day, and knew he didn't need to step in; it would all work out just fine.

Welcome; good first topic!
Your point about Kosh is a good one. As for Delenn, I really expected her to do more but perhaps she was just too inexperienced.
