During the 1990's, it was a time dealing with the problems with subjects like war. Recall, Deep Space 9 was a dark side of what history can give us. If Deep Space 9 did not have a war, I think the show would have ended around the third season.
What 1990s did you live through? It was the end of the Cold War, and an era of (relative) peace, except for the occasional act of terrorism.
And the war did not even start until the end of season 5, so I don't think it's likely it would have ended in season 3 without the war.
Realtive peace aside from

The Gulf War
Kosovo War
Bosnian War

to name but 3 that NATO was involved in, there were also plenty of civil wars, and other conflicts that NATO did not take part in.

that's why I said relative peace.
