Re: The Maquis or the Federation?

^ At least the Bajoran resistance tried as best they could to confine their attacks to members of the Cardassian military.

And as I said, the Maquis surely could have disabled the Bok'Nor without destroying it.

On the subject of Sisko, though: He did not commit any crimes. Eddington started those attacks with the express intention of wiping out Cardassian colonies. Sisko, OTOH, simply leveled the playing field, by forcing the Maquis and Cardassians to exchange colony sites. No one died as a result of Sisko's actions, but if Eddington had gone unchecked, there would have been casualties... remember, Sisko gave ample warning for the Maquis to evacuate.
