I'd like to point out that Garrosh is the lesser of two evils. If Thrall had not left the horde and stayed on as warchief, then he wouldn't have joined the earthen ring. If Thrall hadn't joined the ring, then they may not be able to save Deepholm from the Twilight's Hammer, or keep the portal to Deepholm intact. This would cause Deepholm to spill into our world, which means we'd all be completely and totally frakked.Also, Varian Wyrnn isn't too happy about this who, world being destroyed thing either. So, as per human instinct, he's looking for somebody to blame. Who better then his mortal enemies and the race that destroyed his kingdom when he was eight years old? Look around, there's more horde vs alliance then ever before! Not to mention that Garrosh is retaliating, and that the Forsaken are fighting back thrice as hard. Look at the examples! The Ashenvale logging camp and Silverwind Refuge, the Dragonmaw and the Wildhammers in Twin Peaks, Tol Barad, the Greymane Wale and the Worgen vs. Forsaken, the destruction of Southshore, the conflict in the Twilight Highlands, The destruction of Camp Taurajo, the battle in the Southern Barrens (I think that's all).What would Thrall have done if Varian had attacked now? Since he's a pretty tough orc, he'd no doubt fight back, even if he tried to convince Varian that we shouldn't be fighting each other. AND, don't forget why the forsaken are going off and messing with the worgen and the alliance. It's because Garrosh turned his back on them after they started using Valk'yr to raise the dead and supply their ranks. Again, what would Thrall have done? I have no doubt that he would have talked with Sylvanas and tried to convince her that it was wrong. That could have gone one of two ways: Sylvanas backs down and stops using the Valk'yr, OR, she gets angry that Thrall is preventing her people from surviving (figuratively) and she puts a half dozen arrows in his back. Knowing Sylvanas, I'll go with the latter.I'm not saying that Thrall is a bad leader. He's better and more ethical then Garrosh's "chop first, ask questions later" attitude. However, Garrosh is the leader that the horde needs right now, not Thrall, who has too many responsibilities and duties as a shaman and high-ranking member of the ring. Garrosh made the choices that could have gone much worse if Thrall had, and so we have to accept that. He's our warchief, and although I don't like him (much like Steven Harper), we have to accept that he's there, because he's not leaving until he steps down or winds up with a sword in his gut. FOR THE HORDE!!!
