Well, the Dark eldars will be absolutely hopeless so in the end I think the Tau will have to try and whipe em out or get whiped out...

None; Tau are far too weak to threaten anyone.

I dont think any race will get wioed out by anyone, and if one did, it would probably be the Tyranids fault.

Eldar Eldar eldar.... Thier pride will diminish fluff wise and they will soon Join the ranks of Tau for the greater good. A double cross will occur once the threat to eldar is gone and the Eldar will Leave the greater good and continue The rehabilition of thier once glorious race. I think the new Tau empire will hold many suprise fluff and additions with Tau and eldar.

As Veq has proven before, if the Eldar really wanted the Tau dead, the Tau would die. The Eldar are in no danger whatsoever from the Tau.

I ment Joining the Tau rather than obliterating with guns I feel there will be an outside threat Nids to eldar for example and Eldar will shake will join the greater good. Not a whole army but factions will forge. Something to look at, Orks will not be destroyed ever ever ever ever. They have that photosynthesis spore than shed off them once they die, only in strong physchic places can the not regenerate.

Yes... and yet they have made no efforts whatsoever to side with, say, the Imperium, who are infinately stronger than the Tau.

Eldar have no allies because they deem 99% of the galaxy as unworthy. How the hell the Demiurg and Zoats ever allied with them I have no idea, but I would imagine the alliance is more along the lines of "we're friends because killing you is too much effort", rather than any concept of "Greater Good".

nids
there are 3 splinter fleets from kraken heading for the tau. the tau will have their hands full just holding these off. should they win, it will be the greatest victory their empire has ever acheived. could they defeat the entire tyranid race? nope. the imperium, the largest, most powerful empire ever, have stated that should ever shot they fire hit and kill a tyranid, there will still be billions more coming for them. if the imperium fear for their survival, and indeed, their tactics revilve around just trying to survive, and stave off the hivefleets. what hope do they tau have of annihalating the tyranids.
sisters
they're humans. see above.
orks
they infest the galaxy. theres even more of them than humans. humans have tried and failed to wipe out the orks too many times in the past, and have only succeeded in making them stronger. tau? not a hope of destroying them.
elder
the tau will never destroy the eldar. they're too spread out. trying to find the eldar then, is like chasing a ghost. they strike, they kill, then they go back to the webway. could the tau destroy alaitoc, the only main craftworld near them? probably, if they disabled the craftworld in real space (tough beyond mortal comprehension), destroy the fleet (and imperial squadrons will go up against eldar, suffer 75% casualties for no kills, and call it a good day, so use that to gauge the impossibility of this) and then send in a force equivelant to that needed to take and hold cadia (which is beyond what the tau have!). and then of course, they have to plan for all this, and the farseers will have to somehow "miss" their craftworlds doom. will never happen.craftworlds can die. iyanden is one example. alaitoc farseers have seen their craftworld burning in heir visions. but it will be a viciously tough job to do it.
dark elder
Dark eldar raid. then run back to the webway. the only way to destroy them is to send a force through the webway, and take comorragh. and that wont happen, considering the eldar master yof the webway
necrons
they'd have to find thme first. and theres no real necron tomb world anywhere near the tau empire. most i think are in the galactic centre.
a chapter of humans
you mean space marines? that's a laugh. it could be done. but it would be a very very risky job, and would cost an obscene amount of tau lives. and SM fortress monasteries are more than capable of handling themselves, considering they all have cannons that crack open space ships like tin cans. and then there's the void shield protections. could the tau di it? sure. but it would be tough. and honestly, i cant see it happening.
a chapter of chaos
the fact that the eye of terror is 3/4 of a galaxy away, and we have no way of reaching it occur to you?
we will destroy ourselves
no. we will struggle on, and find out place in this galaxy.

I aggre that orks are too numerus to wipe out, but you can't compare a chapter of space marines to all of the orks. The ork equivalent of a chapter could be killed by the tau,if they just stay way back and pick them off.
