Where Is the Honor?
Around the time of the Shattering, the Warchief Garrosh Hellscream ordered Overlord Kromgar to secure a perimeter for the Horde encampments in Stonetalon. Overlord Kromgar went above and beyond his call of duty by unleashing a bomb that destroyed a druid training grove. Warchief Garrosh rewarded that above and beyond dedication by throwing the Overlord off a cliff. According to the eyewitnesses, Garrosh spoke of honor.
This week in Theramore, that honor and outrage by the Warchief were missing. I was in a detachment that freed a spy. After we returned to the boat, my brother noticed that the whole assault was a ruse to drop a very destructive weapon: A mana bomb. My brother Thieldren served in Outland in the aftermath of the Third War and has seen what these bombs can do. I have also seen the aftereffects of mana bomb exposure. A mana bomb has the effect of disrupting magic in some very twisted ways. The one that was dropped onto Theramore turned the city into a large crater. The impressive organization of the whole operation showed that this is not some rogue general: It had to have been ordered from Garrosh himself. I heard that it has been all cheering in Orgrimmar over the destruction of Theramore. This crime has even greater implications.
Theramore was the reason that Horde and Alliance nations were not in a state of total war: Theramore was a voice of moderation. Neither side can afford total war as they are recovering from crises ranging from the aftereffects of the Scourge invasion 10 years ago to the refugee crisis of Stormwind. This destruction not only removed a hope for peace and recovery for both sides but it also added fuel to an already raging fire.
I am a member of the Horde and I will defend the lands, including my homeland of Quel'thalas. Should any army pursue Garrosh, whether it is to bring him to trial for his crime or to kill him, I will step aside. Garrosh has always been reckless in leading an alliance of races but to authorize the use of a mana bomb on a major Alliance city goes beyond that. Garrosh must be removed from the office of Warchief.
