Would you tell that to the Bajorans?
Kai Opaka betrayed her son and 42 other resistance fighters to the Cardassians to save the lives of the 1200 inhabitants of the Kendra Valley.

As a rule, the Bajoran Resistance does not seem to have been cheap with the lives of Bajoran civilians.
Bajoran civilians, no. Cardassian civilians...yes.

Recall Kira's line in "Duet" that as far as the Resistance was concerned, "They were all guilty."
The ones present on Bajor. I somehow doubt that she would have advocated detonating nuclear weapons in the middle of downtown Lakarian City, though.
