There is a topic about what if there is peace, but this one is, like the topic said, about why it is impossible for peace to be achieved.
The reason why peace cant be achieved is because each of the factions think that all of the others are wrong. The Good factions (Imperium, Eldar, Tau) each think each of the others are wrong. The one most likely to ally with the others are the Tau, but no one would ally with them but mabey the Eldar. The Evil factions (Chaos, Dark Eldar, Orks, Necrons, Tyranids) are just too evil to ally with each other. The Imperium is numerous to destroy the Tyranids with help from the Eldar. The Tau can defeat orks. The Eldar can take care of Necrons and Dark Eldar. And together, they could destroy the Chaos. It could happen, but it wont.
I think your looking at WH40k in black and white.
Who is good and evil? Really, the Imperium KILLS psykers simply because they are psykers to keep there Emperor alive. They turn people into servitors, and they kill other people on the grounds that they don't act the same and/or are not humans.
The Dark Eldar do as they do to SERVIVE in the most fundimental of ways (keep the angly Slaanesh monster happy...ish ) By means of torture/pleasure/enslaveing random races.
The Orks are evil because thats there natural instinks. They really don't know any better.
Chaos are evil in that they want the Imperium destroyed for a variety of reasons.
The Eldar are not trying to save the galexy like some people seem to think, they are trying to do what is best for them in the long run, atleast 99% of the time. Often done by killing people.
The Tau are to deturmed in there single minded dogmatic beleif of the "greater good" which is basicaly galactic domination.
Basicaly, ALL of the races/factions in the 40k universe are "evil" and somehow "good" in there own ways.
The Tau aim for peace. A galaxy united, every species free to live their lives as they wish, so long as they do not infringe on the freedom of others.
Wraithbone is stronger than adamantium. Prove me wrong.
In short the Imperium is not objectivily Good.
Equally Tyranids are effctivly animals. they have no sense of morality and hence can not be called Evi, anymore than a super nova with the capacity to wipe out a world can be called evil.
"The more I learn about these aliens, the more I come to understand what drives them the more I hate them. I hate them for what they are and what they may one day become. I hate them not because they hate us but because they are incapable of good honest human hate".

your quote is about the tyranids.
Tau are just as evil, just more insidious and devious about it. They want a society of equals...with the Tau being more equal than everyone else. Think Animal Farm.
