Re: Why did the Dominion sign a non aggression pact with Bajor?

I think it's because they knew that Bajor was weary of war, and with a barely-stable government and economy would be eager to avoid another conflict if there was a peaceful alternative. Also, if the Dominion had come to Bajor guns-blazing, every former resistance fighter would immediately go back into full resistance mode and they'd have the same headache the Cardassians had. Since Bajor is only a tiny part of the Alpha Quadrant, why have troops tied up fighting a guerrilla war against a bunch of farmers when they can just remain neutral and be bypassed?
