"When blood-crazed, willing slaves to demons who had sold their race and their world for power assaulted Azeroth, it was the humans who fought them."Or maybe we could describe it accurately and mention that the orcs were fooled into practicing fel magic and losing their shamanistic powers by a demon called "the deceiver" who by all accounts was very good at his job, and forced to drink demon blood until they couldn't think straight because one megalomaniacal warlock decided to sell his soul and his own people out for magical power.Biased much?

This post is not about orcs, what meters are the humans. Stop with this anti orcracism comments please.

With that wording, it could be referring to how the Legion sold themselves for power.

"To make ourselves into victims, rather than claiming our participation in our own destruction. We chose this path, we orcs. We chose it right up until it was too late to turn back." -Thrall.So no, I don't think Rossi's biased.

"forced to drink demon blood"None of the orcs were forced to drink demon blood. At all. They chose to do it willingly. Grom even jumped the line to get ahead of Blackhand to do it. Don't forget that they'd already slaughtered a good number of draenei by that point anyway.Yes, the orcs were tricked.That doesn't change the fact that THEY DRANK DEMON'S BLOOD WILLINGLY.Durotan chose not to, and forbid his clan from doing so.Orgrim Doomhammer also chose not to.EVERY SINGLE ORC at the convocation could have chosen not to drink.They were not forced. At all.

It's also worth noting that Grom - having seen first-hand what the blood of Mannoroth did - chose to drink it *again*. He made the same choice *twice*, and the second time at least he knew *exactly* what he was doing. The Horde - Thrall included - like to paint Grom as a Big Damn Hero for killing Mannoroth; they don't seem as keen to remember that it was Grom who led the way into that corruption.

I'm pretty sure 'They Set A God On Me After They Attacked Me Out Of The Blue Because They Couldn't Beat Me Otherwise And It Is Killing All My Clanmates' is possibly the most reasonable excuse anyone has ever had anywhere for re-drinking demons blood.
