Your admiration is for their devotion to duty and country, but what I'm trying to point out is that to have that devotion they have to turn a blind eye to their harsh intolerance of dissent. There's devotion and there's blind devotion. Garak understood the difference, but we've only seen a handful of Romulans who did.

Was it Sisko or Odo who said that? I vaguely remember Odo making a comment that amused Kira to no end during that discussion.
