Wolverine has the right of it. They may be an endangered species, but that's all the more reason to protect what they have, not put children at risk and make them go to war. Scott has been a major dick ever since the whole Utopia thing started.
The Avengers being dicks also doesn't have anything to do with Scott. The two can both be mega douches, and are, in this scenario.
Tell me how in the world it's a good idea for Scott to want the Phoenix to come to Earth? HE SHOULD KNOW BETTER THAN ANYONE WHY THAT IS A HORRIBLE IDEA - You're right! Instead, it's Cap and the Avengers trying to tell him how wrong it is.. that's completely backwards, and just shows how out of touch Cyke is. He's got tunnel vision, and doesn't care about the consequences of any of his actions.
Also.. the Helicarrier was cloaked. They were there for Cap's protection, which as Cyclops proved, was a smart choice. Cap did not attack Cyclops. He came to talk. Scott made the first move.
The only thing I disagree with is that Scott made the first move. Cap came onto his island, unannounced and uninvited and started making demands. If Utopia is a recgonized nation (a la Latveria), Cap had no business going about things this way. Had the Avengers shown up at Latveria, the world would be throwing a hissy fit (like they did in Secret Wars). The Helicarrier filled with Avengers showed (at least in my opinion) that Cap had no real intention of coming up with an actual solution to things.
Of course, if Cap had any real intention of coming up with a solution to things, this wouldn't be called Avengers vs. X-Men.
