no the alliance has commited some down right evil acts, yet there is generally a reason or cause for it.
the horde on several occasions has done evil acts without justification.
thats what it boils down to, justification.
So please, re-read the story, get a better grasp of it if you are going to argue about its details.
twice azeroth has been in risk of being destroyed by them or their tech.
even excluding them the trolls NEVER had complete control of azeroth.
the fought constantly with the insect empires and the feral titanic constructs.
any way you cut it the trolls never controlled all of azeroth.

Speculation based on the fact that Mogu enslave everything, Trolls could easily have seen it as a way to try and control the growing Night Elf empire. The closest suggestion to how the war between them started was the Night Elves were aiding the Pandaren and just decided to crush the Trolls when they were done. Doesn't make a lot of sense; that part was not fleshed out at all. Not even in 5.2, to my dismay.and Trolls are known for slavery, so no, they wouldnt have enslaved the Night Elves.
Both sides have made countless mistakes and errors in judgement. All the quest text in-game is 100% biased - intentionally - because most of the NPCs are operating under the same propaganda.
Varian tried to get Jaina to commit the Kirin Tor to the Alliance and kick out the Sunreavers. When she refused, Varian tried to negotiate an induction of the Blood Elves. Then she Purged the Sunreavers from Dalaran, screwing up Varian's new plan. She is pretty batty, she's flipping back and forth between extremes. One moment she's sympathetic to the plight of the Horde, then she's on a murderous rampage, then she's calm and understanding, then she's in another rage. Supposedly she calms down long enough to work with the Horde in 5.2.
