True. The Federation Cardassian peace treaty also felt like a huge diplomatic failure, comparable to the Munich Pact. The Cardassians treated that treaty like toilet paper, violated it whenever they wanted to and then used it against the Federation whenever they could. The Cardassians and Federation were at war with each other a few years after the peace treaty was signed.
Even as a big Cardassian fan, I will say that treaty was horrible. I can't imagine it exactly inspired the Cardassians to respect such weaklings as the Federation showed itself to be. And then the Feddies went and basically sold their own people in the DMZ to curry favor with the Cardassians.

The Cardassians' response to that was basically to take advantage of it.
