Key: Wyrnn's Reasoning (Real World Equivilent)1. The Old Horde Destroyed Stormwind, thus we hate the orcs (Hating Germans and Japanese now for WWII)2. Grom's actions were evil, all orcs are evil. (This religous sect did something evil, therefore all people of that religion are evil.)3. The New Horde revere Orcs that did bad things (The USA reveres a group of Slave Owners)I'm not going to make any bold statements like Wrynn is right or wrong, I will however say that his actions being informed like this, isn't exactly a far fetched reach. We don't have to look around us in our world to see others that would be doing the same thing as Wrynn even in positions as high up as Wrynn ("After all, this is the guy who tried to kill my dad.")And before anyone even attempts to pin me as a "Horde Apologist," I will say that yes, the RAS has never held a secret about it's New Plague's intent. If the Dark Lady didn't know, that only speaks to her own failings. Garrosh needs to be put in his place, and Saurfang's inability to supercede rank to do so before Garrosh drives the bloodlust of the Old Horde back into the fold speaks to a number of issues.Finally, Thrall's over-reliance on diplomacy above all else is a weakness and a pipe dream for the world he inhabits. Diplomacy is fine, but to ignore a threat to your own people in favor of maybe talking it out, is foolhardy in Azeroth. And it's something that Varian Wrynn would not be so blind to do. If only for that reason, the King of Stormwind has my blade.
