The thing with Southshore is that it was a town of military significance since it was a harbor town. And the battles between Tarren Mill and Southshore pre-cata proved that Southshore would not lay down arms. So the Forsaken were forced to destroy the town if they wished to secure Hillsbrad. Taurajo was a little different. The Alliance's first action was burning it down and attacking it in a way that ensured they could kill as many of its inhabitants as possible. I'm sure that if the Alliance marched in and laid siege as opposed to firebombing it on first site the taurens would probably have surrendered. Then the Alliance could just take prisoners and do a trade off with the Horde for their Alliance prisoners. But that's not how it happened. They just swept in and started attacking without giving them a chance to flee or negotiate terms of surrender.
