I suppose I would, if the two factions aren't at war.

Look at Theramore and tell me it isn't uninhabitable.
But it wasn't used against those entities, it was used against the Alliance, so why mention it as if it happened? It was being designed as a shock and awe super weapon to use against the Alliance from the start. It just happened to be useful against everything. The developers going rogue changes nothing, Sylvanas got her plague and the research on how to continue making it was not lost or destroyed, which is why those weak scum haul around plague wagons everywhere they set up a base camp.
The developers going rogue changes everything because if they didn't it wouldn't have been used against the Alliance. It would have been used against the Scourge.
Mogu were not put down by the Shado-pan, Mogu were defeated by the combined efforts of all the races on Pandaria as well as the Celestial benefactors, 12000 years ago. Grummles stopped delivering food and supplies and started running communications for the rebellion, Hozen began ravaging Mogu bases, Jinyu used their talents to get the elements on their side and the Celestials gave the rebels powerful boons to strike against the Mogu. *After* Lei Shen died. I'm not saying they aren't good at what they do, but what they do is limited to conflicts that as we've shown already, a mere group of adventurers can handle...
I'm not even saying they could have defeated the Mogu.
I'm saying that a larger version of the Shado-Pan, comprised of all races, and using the same Rogue based fighting tactics, could defeat a Legion invasion. This debate started when I said Azeroth would be better off if the world thought like the Pandaren do, and if we had this hypothetical Shado-Pan-Azeroth group, they could defeat the Legion.
