If we were killing for war crimes then Sylvanas would have her head on the chopping block as well. Blizzard is using the "war crimes" excuse to pin all the blame for the war on Garrosh giving the Horde a free pass.
I thought I would get to this thread before the whining...

But yeah. Both sides pretty much suck. The only faction I'm confident in is what we've seen of the Rebellion so far. Hopefully, it won't include Sylvanas.
We will have to execute the greatest War criminal. The genocidal Player character.

The Alliance has not committed a single war crime in this war, with the sole exception of that mindblowingly dumb Goblin intro that was never mentioned again.

Jaina =/= the Alliance, just like Garrosh =/= the Horde.

If the Blood Elf means the tidal wave that Jaina conjured, then how do we consider it a war crime if it did not kill anybody.

Unless they meant to say that it was a war crime against kraken.
"War Crime" is such a subjective term when used in certain contexts. Such as Theramore. It was a valid military target, staging area against Horde in South Barrens, so taking it out was a perfectly legit move to make. Applying the words "War Crime" to that is nothing more than a motivator for Alliance troops to get angry.

Jaina attempted to retaliate against the Horde's deployment of weapons of mass destruction with one of her own.

Taking it out made sense, yes, but the means to do so were wrong.

Either way, let's not make this a Theramore thread?

I've always hated this line of reasoning. Why are WMDs bad, again? All they do is kill the enemy more efficiently with one bomb, rather than one thousand. The only thing I find tragic about Theramore were all the Horde lives Garrosh threw away to trick the Alliance.

"Retaliate" is such a good whitewash for attempted mass genocide.

A) The phrase "mass genocide" is redundant and just goes to show how you're using the word for emotional appeal rather than its actual meaning.

B) Look up cold war strategies. Massive retaliation is what second-strike doctrine is all about.

C) You said this RIGHT AFTER justifying the deployment of WMD's. Are you being intentionally hypocritical?

The same reason why it's bad on Earth.

DO NOT START Blood Elf. All you are doing is demonizing Jaina. Knock it off.

No I disagree. She can state her opinion of Jaina all she wants. Jaina was in the wrong, and it took Kalec and Thrall to stop her. She would have gone through with it if they hadn't.

So stop it, human. All you're doing is being over protective of the your crush.

Either way, Weapons of Mass Destruction are not okay to use in War. I'm okay that he took out Theramore, it was a military target, but why did he have to use a mana bomb when he could have just brought more siege?

A: Emotional appeal notwithstanding, Jaina did attempt genocide, seeing as almost all the Orcs were right there in Orgrimmar. Rather conveniant way to simply snuff the whole lot of them, rather than just targeting Horde military sites, or specific parts of Orgrimmar, don't you think?

B: The Cold War was immensely idiotic. Wiping out the entire human species just because of a single bomb being dropped is all kinds moronic.

C: There is a difference between taking out a military target and wiping out an entire species because of butthurt.

"DO NOT START"? She deserves to be demonized, as she attempted the only real Alliance-side warcrime.

Has nothing to do with Crush. I know what she did and I didn't like it either but demonizing her further then she already is stupid and unnecessary.

No she doesn't. We already did this thread over and over again. Jaina doesn't need to be demonized anymore then say Lor'themar does.

Just because you didn't like it, that doesn't mean it didn't happen.

Hell, the Alliance attack was basically the entire reason the Goblins joined the Horde. (Mostly, anyway)

It did happen, but it occupies a dubious spot in the canon where not only was it phenomenally out of character but no explanation for it is offered.

C: There is a difference between taking out a military target and wiping out an entire species because of butthurt.


A) Er, what? Are you claiming that every single Orc was in Orgrimmar? That's insane. The deployment of a weapon of mass destruction isn't automatically genocidal just because it causes mass destruction.

B) You don't understand the Cold War at all.

C) Jaina never came close to wiping out an entire species nor was it ever her goal to wipe out an entire species. Her goal was to do to the Horde what the Horde did to her. Which she should have done. If someone uses a weapon of mass destruction on you then you're well within your rights to respond in kind.
