Does Wrynn know for sure that the Black Dragonflight no longer has any affiliation with the Horde? Remember, we're talking about his limited perspective, not our omniscient view from outside the 4th wall. And remember, in Canon, it's the Alliance who take down Onyxia. The Horde didn't lift a finger. All Wrynn knows is that the Black Dragonflight kidnapped him, and took him to Kalimdor, which is now mostly Horde Territory. It doesn't look good for the Horde, regardless of what's really happening, from the perspective of the Alliance, Wrynn tried diplomacy, and the Horde shafted him.And while the Fordring and Morgraine might be neutral factions in game, they're still tying up the resources of the Lich King in a big way. Wrynn can safely leave a large portion of the offensive in Northrend to those two, and focus the forces he doesn't need on starting up an offensive to keep the Horde from sucker punching him again.Once again, where was Garrosh? Fordragon was out leading from the front, the Alliance was commited to taking the Citadel. Is the Alliance to believe that the son of Grom Hellscream is too much of a coward to lead his offensive to the very gates of the Foe? Or that the Horde's leaders knew what was about to occur? Which is more likely from what the Alliance has seen?Wrynn saw Thrall having killed a Dreadlord. Sacrificing a dreadlord as a scapegoat is entirely within keeping of the image the Horde has shown the Alliance. From what the Alliance has seen of this new Horde, they aren't better than the old one, just smarter.The thing you need to keep into perspective isn't what you and I know about the "new" Horde, it's what Wrynn knows. And what Wrynn knows is that he tried diplomacy and the Horde tried to kill him. He tried to let the Horde be while the Alliance went after the Lich King, and the Horde murdered the man who held his kingdom together while the Horde was holding him captive. He tried peace, he tried dente, the only recourse left to him now is war.
