I write in response to Salyse Wintercrest’s article in your latest issue, entitled Let’s Not Repeat Pandaria.
I find it interesting that Salyse should accuse those who refuse to accept this so-called truce of 'greed', as if she herself were not the leader of a faction-neutral organisation that stands to directly profit from the suspension of hostilities… And suspension is all it will ever be.
The Horde have proven time and time again how flagrantly they disregard peace. Have there not been other truces? Can 'Lady' Wintercrest not recall what the Horde did in Amber Mill, while under truce? What they did in Highvale to a community they were not at war with? How about to the people of Kul Tiras, who had nothing to do with the fighting at all? What about Gilneas? The leadership may have changed but the soldiers who committed those atrocities still wield the same blades they drove into our backs. It seems that this particular elf has a very short memory.
Article continues after the ad.
Worst of all, Lady Wintercrest asks for peace after members of The Horde burned the cultural and spiritual hub of the Kaldorei to the ground, slaughtering its people in droves. The thugs who instigated that genocide still occupy our ancestral lands, still drink in their taverns and still laugh at the weakness of The Alliance. Not even the creature who planned and executed that unspeakable act has been put to the sword. To kiss the boot that kicks you is cowardice in the extreme.
Let us not be too harsh with Wintercrest and her 'earnest' plea for peace however, sitting in her floating tower, in her expensive finery, drinking her imported wine. Perhaps she has simply forgotten what those of us who suffered and bled in the dirt were fighting for.
Until there is justice there can be no peace - not in The Dragon Isles or anywhere else.
