The Warsong arguement is particular weak.Of course it isn't about lumber anymore.It's pretty simple, let me tell you a little about the history of Warsong...1. Horde was trying to build some houses to live in.2. Night Elves came along "Oh, my, god... you cut down a handful of trees! The only possible answer is mass genocide of your entire race!"3. Large numbers of orcs were killed.4. Orcs are now fighting back out of revenge, due to Night Elves which mercilessly slaughtered Orcs, over FREAKING TREES.Dear god, how psychotic are Night Elves? Because of course, the life of a living being is inferior to that of a TREE!?!?!?!?!?Is it any wonder why there is continued fighting in Ashenvale?

If I come to your back yard after having been at war with your people for years, cut down trees, laid concrete, and built a home, would you openly accept me into your land? I think not. Let's use our heads here.

"If I come to your back yard after having been at war with your people for years, cut down trees, laid concrete, and built a home, would you openly accept me into your land? I think not. Let's use our heads here."Problem with that. The Orcs and Night Elves had never been at war before. They had never even met before.This is more comparable to being lost in the forest, cutting down a tree to try and build yourself a shelter to stay in for the night. Then along comes someone you've never met before who pulls out a gun and says, "You cut down a tree on my 500,000 square mile (my rough estimate to the size of Ashenvale) plot of forested land" and then shoots you in the face.The Night Elves, were psychotic. There's no other word for that.

You're missing the point though. The argument by the author is that they found out the land was taken and attacked. The "reality" (since this is all fiction anyway, reality gets quotes) is that the NE's attacked as soon as they found out they were settling/logging. The author condemns the Horde for taking up arms and not sending emissaries, yet ignores the fact that NE's attacked the Warsong without any attempt at talks. They immediately took up arms and attacked. Hypocrisy at it's typical Alliance finest.
