Re: What likely happened to the Cardassian Union after the war

It was mostly the French, yes, you're right about that...but as far as I got TīGirl's post, she was suggesting reparations of the sort, such as mostly dismantling the Cardassians' fleet, taking their colonies, dividing the Union into zones, controlled by different powers. What I was suggesting is that this would create a lot of resentment amongst the Cardassians toward the victors, much as the Versailles treaty did amongst the Germans.

...which would, after a while, probably cause the opposite of the desired effect, namely pacifying the Cardies. It would make them hate everyone else even more than they did before the war.
