Re: 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.
I think I'm gonna vomit. What are you kind UN peacenik? Lets hold hands w/the Jem'Hadar and sing Kumbahya and eat berries and leechy nuts.
War is hell. Take your girl undies off and put your boy's on and open your eyes.
