Yeah, of course, because seizing the Horde capital would in no way make all the remaining horde factions completely hostile. I mean, it's not like both forsaken and Blood elves have WMD's ready to be deployed the minute shit hits the fan, or that trolls and taurens would go completely berserk at this dishonor.
Sarcasm aside, the alliance just doesn't have the man power to seize Orgrimmar. And such act of hostility would cause an all out war with casualties on the millions for both sides. I mean, come on people, Varian would have to be the same idiot he was when he returned to make such a hasty and stupid decision.
Truth is, it's impossible for the faction war to end, and that's not because of game balance. The logistics necessary to completely annihilate the other side are impossible. The toll would be too great, and so much more on a setting where there are powers that can actually rip the world apart.
The common man is like a worm in the gut of a corpse, trapped inside a prison of cold flesh, helpless and uncaring, unaware even of the inevitability of its own doom.
Wrathion only saw the Legion coming. The Old Gods and Azshara are still around. The world would fall apart.
Pretty sure Herecius is right on the money... he wouldn't do it because it's a dick move and not betraying them gives him the moral high ground. Plus... you don't betray the guys who could get an arrow to your throat within three seconds of you screwing them over.
Am I the only one to think Alliance "fans" like the OP really want Varian to be a bloodthirsty warmonger just like Garrosh?
Varian should only be there with a few SI:7 guys and observe the situation. That's it.
Assuming that Varian and his AA couldn't slaughter them all if he wants. Wrathion thinks opposite of you. The whole point of 5.4 here is Varian showing his class not because he is scared of the inferior forces.

The lore after LK has been terrible. I don't even care anymore. First Deathwing, now Pandas. When is this junk going to end?
Please for the love of god make the next expac burning legion or LK related. Or atleast something where people would actually care about the lore.
The lore is perfectly fine - however, it requires that you actually pay attention OP, and not just come up with your own wacko conclussion.

Amazing sig, done by mighty Lokann
One, Varian doesn't conquer Orgrimmar. No army enters Orgrimmar, a raid of 25 people is just that, a raiding party, not an occupying army. Two, do you really think Wrynn could conquer Orgrimmar with a token force, far-far away from reinforcment and supply? After all, Menethil Harbor and the main alliance base in Kalimdor are both in ruins. If after dislodging Garrosh, you honestly think the orcs, trolls, and tauren would abide in an occupying force? Sylvannus would undoubtedly use the distraction to grab the Arathi basin and highlands as Wrynn would be slowly driven back into the sea from Kalimdor. No, this was Wrynn's only choice. Evacuate before the horde realizes he's over-extended himself by being in Kalimdor personally with only a small force. The fellow is wising up, the brash and stupid Wrynn would have tried to occupy Orgrimmar and wold have found himself a slave again. The wiser Wrynn realizes Orgrimmar is but a spot on the map and not the summation of the horde. Like they really needed his blessing to pick a new warchief. Get real.
I'm rolling a Blunt Elf... That's a high-elf that likes to party.
