There was no threat it was cold blooded murder. but it may have saved the Alliance a big headache. Stop moralizing it and just accept that inw ar sometimes you forgoe morals for convenience.
The Orcs do not need weapons to kill Alliance soldiers.
The Orcs adhere to a strict code of honor that preaches "Victory or Death!"
The Orcs made a conscious decision to swim AT the Alliance position, rather than to one of the multiple clear shorelines.
The Orcs were not civilians or Noncombatants, but Orcish Marines.
There is absolutely zero evidence to suggest the Orcs were doing anything but attempting to take the Alliance position. If you believe that the Alliance troops should wait until there's a green fist around their throats before fighting back I don't know what to tell you.
Maybe they took some lessons from the Green Messiah Thrall who had absolutely no problem flying around electrocuting fleeing Alliance soldiers who, unlike the Orcs in your example, were actually trying to get AWAY from him.
