the Tzenkethi are furious over the death of one of their citizens, a child "at the hands" of the Federation (regardless of how events actually played out).
"A single death is a tragedy", as the tyrant said...but I'd hardly call that an excuse to go to war...unless you're just trigger-happy--or at least insanely sentimental.
The Tzenkethi weren't looking for an excuse to go to war, the Tzelnira and Autarch were using the Zormonk incident as fuel for their "It's all and always the Federation's fault" agenda. The Federation is apparently their scapegoat for everything. This was a good opportunity to cement the Federation as "evil" in the eyes of the Tzenkethi people, it wasn't warmongering.
