The Dominion War brought out the worst in Starfleet

As I was watching "What You Leave Behind" the other night, I was struck by something: Odo ends the war by being the most Starfleet-esque person in the show! He reaches out and shows compassion for an enemy, conquering the enemy by making her a friend.

If only Starfleet had remembered their principles much earlier, the war might have ended sooner!

I don't mean to be a Dominion apologist, but it takes two to war. Starfleet was always meant to be a force for good (much like America's modern navy, if the ads are to be believed), and the moment they stopped acting like that, they damned themselves to an interminable war.
For the world is hollow, and I have touched the sky...
