But that wasn't the case - Uther left not because he was a hypocrite, but because Arthas, as prince of Lordaeron, had branded him a traitor. We don't know what he did after he left Arthas' camp, we just know that he and the paladins who chose to go with him continued to fight the Scourge - but the story focuses on Arthas at this point. Based on what we know about him, it is entirely likely that he -did- try for another way "off-map", but that's something we'll never know.As for Jaina - she's not a hypocrite either, at that point she leaves simply because she doesn't have the stomach for it. She's a powerful sorceress, yes, but she lacks confidence and she has no troops under her command. She's not hypocritical, it's just too much for her to handle as she tells Arthas.I personally think it's very obvious that The Culling was used by Blizzard to show us just how far Arthas had fallen - he no longer cared about the safety and protection of his people, or the words of his mentor. He was tired of being lectured about the Holy Light and he wanted revenge at Mal'ganis. His people had simply become statistics to him at that point, if even that - kill a large number of them, infected and non-infected alike, and maybe that'll stop a larger number from dying. Maybe. But he didn't try. He didn't even want to hear of any other solutions. Maybe Uther -did- have a solution, or at least something else worth attempting; we'll never know, as Arthas was too proud and angry to even hear his mentor out.*cough*AnakinskywalkerkillsyounglingsObi-wanisholdinghimback*cough*
