No, they should walk away and not be silly. If they choose to be silly, they deserve the above, and more.
Really, the whole idea of "making a stand" for "rights" at the above cost is so disgusting that it boggles the mind that anybody could find this sorry lot sympathetic in any sense. The violence is all their own choosing, the victimization their own doing. All because they prefer to be "happy" on a lawn they themselves planted!
That's your skewed opinion. Personally I find it more repugant you're saying people deserve to die and be brutalized because they stand up for themselves when their own government gave away their homes to appease a hostile power that wasn't interested at all in peace.
I'm sure the Cardassian Central Command agrees with that sentiment though, so if that's what you're going for good job there.
