Re: Star Fleet and Genocide
At that point the Federation and its allies were already winning the war. The virus was no longer about preserving the Federation, but just murdering the leaders of the Dominion. The Federation was just as bad as Section 31 for refusing to give the cure.
You can't even say that really. The Link was inflected by Odo before the war even began. It was in Season 4's Broken Link that Odo delivered the virus to them. By that point the worst thing the Dominion had done was destroy ships that entered their space.
