@amaxeI'm not going to argue about the events at southshore.Lets put it this way... most of the horde wants the Forsaken out, so lets move onto the Camp Taurajo topic.I agree that General Hawthorne really just wanted to push the Tauren back into Mulgore to allow for the construction of the highway, it's just a comparison between what he SAID and what he DID that causes some doubt behind his reasoning.Considering that General Hawthorne stated that:"Taurajo had a significant civilian population. I wanted to ensure that they could escape the fighting, and many did, finding refuge in the north."Ok, that's honorable... attack the hunters (who are essentially the guards and "military force" of Camp Taurajo), while the civilians flee."When our scouts reported that Taurajo's most dangerous units were out on the hunt, we had to act quickly."Ok... wait... so now that all the hunters ("military force") has left Camp Taurajo, the attack commences... Yes, that means that it's a rout of the Tauren forces (which is essentially the women and children). But since there aren't any enemy military forces for the Theramore military to clash, it's an overrun situation. Essentially, instead of trained soldiers dying to the blades of the Theramore Soldiers guess who stayed and fought to buy the civilians time to escape... more civilians.When you do the horde quests... the 4 people you perform last rites for are:* Omusa (the old Flight Master) "No, stay with the others. Escort them north, away from the fighting. I will stay here with the wyverns and cover your escape. Go!"* Yonada (Tailoring Supplier) - "They've surrounded the camp! What are they doing here? Why are they attacking Taurajo? Get the children - run! RUN!"* Dranh (Leatherworking Trainer)* Krulmoo (Skinning Trainer) "I ran to wake up the others when the attack hit. Were they able to escape? I tried to fight off the soldiers with a skinning knife..."So essentially, General Hawthorne led a military assault against 3 profession trainers and a flight master + his wyverns.
