Starfleet has been about MAD (Mutually Assured Destruction, for you kids) and scorched-earth for over 100 years.


General Order 24: An order to destroy all life on an entire planet. This order has been given by Captain Garth (Antos IV) and Captain Kirk (Eminiar VII). On neither occasion was the order actually fulfilled. (TOS: "Whom Gods Destroy", "A Taste of Armageddon")
Heh...you beat me to it. Yes, in extreme situations, not only is genocide sanctioned by Starfleet, it's downright policy.
