Re: Is Picard a hypocrite?
None of this doesn't imply that the peace treaty between the Federation and the Caradassians is perfect. The logic is probably a pretty cruel one, accept a few issues in the DMZ in order to prevent another war with millions of casualties. Same with the cloaking device and the Rommies, accept a long-term strategic disadvantage for the sake of peace.
You're a unique one, horatio83.
