Here's the whole speech that I'm really showing:
^ Maybe the Federation was losing the war so badly because the bulk of their ships were century old models. Excelsior and Miranda class really?
When you have Defiant, Galaxy, Sovereign, Intrepid, Akira and Prometheus class and how much durable and tactically superior those ships are. Whoever was making tactical/battle strategies at Starfleet needs to have their heads checked.
The whole idea behind the Dominion War was for it not
to be a cakewalk for the Federation-another 'kick in our complacency' to quote Picard. War sometimes is like that, as was the Vietnam War for the USA and for France.
