Right. The Valar were capable of dealing with Númenor, but felt they lacked the authority. They were 'governors' of Arda, but were hesitant to annihilate an entire race of people, especially one that had been given special reward for their allegiance in the past.

The lore concerning the 'end times' of Arda has always fascinated me, and that's something I really wish there was more 'canon' available for.
