No perfect answer?
I was trying to be fair in choosing the word "dilemma". The definitions I considered were:

1. a situation requiring a choice between equally undesirable alternatives.

2. any difficult or perplexing situation or problem.
Indeed. Archer will hurt somebody no matter what he does. Either he helps the Valakians and hurts the Menk or vice versa or he helps both and become an intergalactic dictator who runs this planet or he helps none like in the show and hurts the Valakians.
So far the people who argue for merely helping the Valakians ignore the plight of the Menk. As you said, it is Tuvix all over again (but just with more people involved).
