Its been a while since I read The Shattering, but I thought when Varian and the Si:7, his goal was just to get rid of Moria and the Dark Irons. Anduin had already escaped to Theramore via his hearthstone. He knew Anduin was safe at that point. Varian asked Jaina to keep it a secret to get the advantage over Moria. Anduin shows up just in time to save Moria, leading Varian to reassess the situation, leading the the creation of the Council of Three Hammers.

It's certainly a peculiar moment, in that it seemed to assert Stormwind's hegemony over Ironforge. Prior to that novel I had viewed the two kingdoms as equal, but Varian's actions, and the dwarves' meek submission, suggest more of a client-state relationship.I too would love to see more done with Moira and the Dark Irons. She has huge potential. What if she is able to consolidate power? How does Varian react?
