I didn't say they weren't a warlike race. I said Equestria is not a warlike nation. Obviously when Sombra starts conquering them, Equestria turned into a warlike nation real fast.
Anyway, since bat ponies are a thing that exists, whatever the circumstances of their creation, it wasn't a situation where it would be seen as an act of aggression by warring nations. I'm just saying that it seems much more compelling that Princess Celestia created them, which goes against most people's assumption that they were Luna's vampiric thralls or something. But that means Princess Celestia created them,
making their history a lot sunnier, and her history a lot darker.
Or maybe they're just pegasi in bat costumes.

The one where the city got sacked and the main 6 got easily captured like little baby ponies who needed their bottle and blankie?

Teeechnically that head canon was denied in the Nightmare Takeover timeline, when Equestria was alive and well despite having been plunged into eternal night without a sun for many years, thanks to the grace and power of Nightmare Moon.
But yeah, either the other races are dumb for not recognizing that ponies basically are
the ecosystem, or there's some weird non-Euclidean dimensional shenanigans that make the sun rise differently in nations outside Equestria.
