There's other things going on here, but to the Horde it would look like it was the Alliance thus causing a misunderstanding, however it would prove that the Alliance races are also capable of savagery.
Yeah I misread your post, and edited mine.

From what I can tell, they were just shooting ships, since the only description of the event is the captain calling them trigger happy, reckless and paranoid. I think the captain works for Ratchet, so it's possible they were shooting neutral ships.
