This whole war plot is silly and forced beyond belief.
Why would you even bother to respond to this obv...T post?

Killing someone for speaking out (as far as Garrosh is concerned, that's exactly what he did) in private is nothing short of tyranny.

Also, I'm yet to hear any justification for Echo Isles.
i hated thrall for beeing a wussi (srsly he got THA POWAAAAA and does he kill the bastard son of stormwind? NO !)
i hate garrosh for not killing the same person (srsly 1 hp left .. FINISH HIM .. EXECUTEEEE)
overall i don't realy see any of the "leaders" as great leader of a war.
Lets start with the basics
Jaina proudmoore: can teleport into the base of the horde without anything, yet doesn't kill garrosh in his sleep (not realy nice but then again he attacked her mage buddys and we all know mage > warrior (atleast in pvp :P) so boom)
Tauren: lol grass is greeen weeeeee ..
trolls: i like vol'jin but he is to nice, relax man and have a joint with the tauren buddys daz dingo maaaan
undead aka silvanas: i'm dead but still sexy! BEAT THAT BITCHES
goblins: who cares about the war? gimme money
b811: our leader is a guy that pretty mutch noone knows! but if you kill him you get a acievment! ..
Gnomes: i'm lvl 90 elite and i live with ugly dwarfes since i can't get a lvl 30 instance wyped out and rebuild ..
dwarfes: who want's a beer? screw the war! <3
humans aka varian: where is my son? that lvl 15 priest? WHO STOLE MY FUCKING SON WAAAA , let's not do something evil and slaughter some orcs .. nooo i like to walk around and search my lil brat
nightelfs: lets hug some trees or shit ..
aliens aka dranei: for the burning legion .. i mean let's be purple and blue and .. well .. meh
worgen aka dogfight: do we even have a leader? bark roar wuff wuff .. ah yeah the gentleman guy ..
someone who fights a war schould know basic warfare, how to hit em where it hurts. but that would mean one of the sides would die, aka end of warcraft aka no more money
-the eviction of non orc, non tauren races from central orgrimmar due to the belief that they are a weaker race,
- the killing of cairne bloodhoof, poison from Magatha aside, this was an unbelievably arrogant and despicable move.
- following up on that, the assassination attempt on vol'jin....do wise benevolent leaders generally try to assassinate wise generals? No, thats usually tyrants
- the appointment of malkorok as his personal bodyguard and the use of him to quiet dissent through intimidation, abduction, and murder.
- the abduction of the focusing iris, the murder of the blue dragon, and the use of the artifact to make a weapon of mass destruction that was then used to "scour theramore from the continent of kalmidor."
- Garrosh's aim of complete genocide of the alliance.
- Garrosh's proclamation that every man women and child is to assist in the war against the alliance, and anyone found shirking their duties will have to deal with his private police force the kor'kron
- the placement of martial law over the echo isles, effectively turning the troll homeland into an interment camp.
- the attempt to use the divine bell to empower warriors in a similar fashion to drinking demon blood.
Garrosh's belief that anyone who isn't an orc is an inferior in the horde. (nazi germany anyone?)
I think that pretty much sums it up. As seeing myself as an intelligent member of the horde I simply can not wait to bring justice to this war criminal.

Garrosh was good for the game because he served as an antagonist through which they were able to write interesting lore into the game. Times of conflict, upheavals, sacrifice and big changes, that was obviously healthy for the Warcraft lore, and is healthy for any lore every once in a while.
I can't relate to the whole "it heats the faction conflict up again" argument though. I look at the Warcraft universe as a whole. I happen to play Alliance, but I don't necessarily "side" with it. I'm interested in what happens on Azeroth (and beyond) overall, Alliance and Horde, it's all part of a story, I'm not over-identifying with one particular faction.
The whole idea of looking at one faction as "us" and being passionately against the other one is dumb and juvenile to me. It's even more dumb than referring to "us" when a national ball team wins a game against some other national ball team, or when a goverment decides to throw off some bombs over the territory of another.
If we did this to every race that I dont like, Azeroth would be pretty empty.
Those "filthy" trolls are still innocents.
"Why do we fight? To protect home and family, to preserve balance and bring harmony. For my kind the true question is, what is worth fighting for?"
We could have had all that with any leader, had they put a little more effort (as in, not pinning ALL sins and ALL atrocities on one faction and one or two of its leaders) into the war storyline. Thrall was just as proud of his orcish heritage and prone to chest-thumping as Garrosh, he just wasn't as stupid, racist, and needlessly belligerent.
