Ermm… It wasn’t just two guards, Remember that bit in the thread earlier where a lot of Team Blue posters were saying if you affiliate yourself with an organisation you are culpable for their crimes? I mean there was post after post saying this was so even though Garrosh was not even on the planet yet.
Don’t you think that is a little Pot and Kettle, I mean Jaina was, and still is, affiliated with the Silver Covenant, and they killed a lot more than this ‘two guards’ nonsense you keep spouting. Heck, you as the player are ordered to murder three civilians, by Vereesa. Who was given -her- orders/was let loose by Jaina. Lets not forget there was torture, as well as murder.
So whilst Garrosh’s overall crimes were vast, almost unimaginable in their scale, and he got his just rewards, sadly not by seeing his Trial through to the end, If we’re saying he is responsible for crimes committed when he wasn’t even on the planet, what does that make someone who wandered around blithely watching the murders she had OK’d?
It can’t be both ways. The morality is actually the same, the Scale however, is far different.
As for factions attacking neutral states and driving them towards the opposite faction, well we’re not exactly short of those in the story are we?
Sylvanas attacks the Neutral Kingdom of Gilneas, driving it to accept Alliance aid and eventually join.
Tyrande presumably authorised the Spying, sabotage and small scale Invasion (Seriously, they’re everywhere in Eversong and Ghostlands, having even taken land, ) of the Neutral Kingdom of Quel’thalas, so it turns for aid to the Horde.
Even the (at the time) Neutral Forsaken sent envoys to the Alliance, who were promptly murdered, hence forcing the Forsaken into the Horde (I mean that was always going to happen, but at the time they were neutral).
The Vulpera, at the time, were a Neutral nation who happened to be trading with their new neighbours, rather than sending envoys to a Neutral nation saying “Yes, I know you’ve never met us, and we live far away, but these guys you support,indirectly, they’re bad people, at the least, why don’t you stay neutral, plenty of nations do, and it works fine” Instead went for the “Kill them, burn their caravans, because they are trading with the ‘bad’ guys (I mean in that scenario, the Alliance are the bad guys,) so we need to teach them a lesson!”
End result? They drive the Vulpera closer to the Horde.
That’s how it works, in our world and it seems in Azeroth. If there are two vast Power blocs, and one of them attacks a neutral nation, that nation won’t just suffer in silence, they’ll go to the other Power bloc and say “Umm, help?”
