I wrote a post about Arthas in Stratholme and his slaughter of all the people there (http://www.wowinsider.com/2007/08/29/slaughtering-no-its-just-burning-down-houses-with-people-i/), but most of the commenters said they thought he was justified in doing that. Yet here in the actual Warcraft 3 scenes, it's clearly portrayed as one of the pivotal moments in his downfall where he really does become evil (in a certain sense) before reaching Northrend and getting fully corrupted -- Uther and Jaina refuse to participate in his campaign. He kills his own people mercilessly out of desire for revenge against the enemies who killed his people mercilessly -- you see? It's insane, the way he does it. So now in Wrath of the Lich King we're going to help him do that? Does that make us insane? Or are Uther and Jaina in this story just... you know... sentimental wusses or something?
