Why is Cersei OK with allying with a Pretender King?

Recommended Posts

She says in the premiere that she has invited the new King of the Iron Islands because they (the Lannisters) need powerful allies.  She calls Olenna a traitor (lol!), the North and the South pretenders and Daenerys a foreign whore.  But why are the Greyjoys OK?????  They are the pretenders in the West.  She doesn't even demand they bend the knee.

Feels like nothing more than because "creatively, the writers wanted it to happen."

To my mind she needs allies that can kick ass. The Ironborn are in the ilk of Vikings, ship faring, blood thirsty, savagely fierce berserkers in their conquests against foes. I can't imagine she wants a pithy group of peasants helping to fight against the foreign whore that on all accounts is more formidable than that of the Lannister army. She'll only use Euron for her own means, I don't see her getting fresh with him before killing him.
