Why does every faction leader need to be a shining bastion of goodness and decency? Varian Wrynn is a HUMAN king, and humans have shown throughout history that they are far from perfect. Varian is a flawed King who does what he does because he truly believes in his heart that the Horde is an abomination that cannot be trusted and needs to be wiped off the face of the planet, or else it'll be the humans who will suffer for it. All the Horde assaults on he and his family throughout his upbringing only solidify that. Spin it however the hell you want - blame rogue factions of the Forsaken, the demon crazy horde, not the current horde and whatever else all you want. The concrete fact remains that IN VARIAN'S EYES, every time there has been some human tragedy, it has been at the hands of a race currently protected by the Horde. He is doing what he feels necessary to protect his people - which should be his first responsibility as faction leader - even if it borders on blind racism. If Orcs murdered my father before my eyes, burned down my home, kidnapped me, etc., I can't say I'd feel any different than he does. Anybody else who says differently is lying.
