This strikes me as hairsplitting.
The only whose been hairsplitting is you.

You keep changing the dynamics of the argument when your points are picked apart.

Either the Ba'ku planet is or isn't a Federation planet? This is the sole argument that matters. If it is, then the Federation is within its right to relocate six hundred inhabitants under eminent domain. If it isn't, then the S'ona should be free to either work a deal or wipe out the Ba'ku to collect the radiation.

Do both options suck for the Ba'ku? Yep, they sure do.
