Probably on the fact that the first wave of reinforcements from the main body of the Dominion was an ass puckering 2800 ships... and earlier in that same episode a force of 1200 ships was an ungodly huge force that outnumbered the good guys 2 to 1.
By all accounts when the Dominion can maintain themselves with just the resources of the Cardassian Union and very nearly win, imagine how many waves of reinforcements they'd be facing with the whole of the Dominion sending wave after wave of reinforcements every one of their world breeding Jem'Hadar by the millions, and assembling ships weekly.
I'll concede that the Dominion's numbers are staggering, but if this is to be a true rematch, then who's the say the Federation fights this battle alone? I'm sure both the Klingons and the Romulans would have a problem with the Dominion once again threatening their borders. The Romulan government changed significantly post-Nemesis
, but that wouldn't preclude their military from responding to Dominion incursion.
