All you need to understand why the alliance hates forsake is clearly displayed in the cutscene at the end of Wrathgate when Sylvanas shows up with her poison barrels and indiscriminately attacks not only the scourge but the soldiers as well.Even as the Alliance and the Horde stand together in the face of destruction - Sylvanas betrays them both. How the hell she managed to stay in the horde after *that* episode I can't for the life of me figure out. "Death to the scouge and death to the living !" they shout - and that sums up their entire attitude.Saurfang Junior is one of the fatalities of that. That incredibly moving piece of lore after you take down the risen Deathbringer Saurfang as Menethil has perhaps one of the wisest moments of his career as king and actually sees beyond his deepseated old hatreds toward the orcs for what they did to him - to the point where Jaina sobs with pride - that moment as you the player are confronted with the fact that in order to get to Arthas' you have just been forced to destroy the last remnants of a true hero - a hero so great that BOTH factions pay him tribute... would never have had to happen if not for Sylvanas.The alliance knows that the forsaken cannot be trusted as they make no secret of the fact that they would prefer to see the entirety of life destroyed and turned undead as they are. That their betrayal of the orcs didn't get them kicked out of the horde is a sheer miracle but honestly Sylvanas shouldn't be the least bit surprized that Garosh doesn't trust her - she's done everything to make sure he can't.Biasses: My main is a gnome, my most important alt a nefl (druid) and my second most important alt is a troll hunter.
