He was-- he so much as stated if they wiped out the Founders, the Jem Hadar would run out of white. He was way off.
With the way the Dominion is set up, it is capable of running with hardly any input from a Founder. At least for a while anyway.
The 'do whatever it takes' to win philosophy has its ups and downs I think.
On the one end, doing things like pushing sentient beings to fight for you is dangerous and the Federation becomes the very thing it is fighting against.
But then again, 'photons be free"?? lol
On the other hand, those principles are going to give in to survival when a few million brutal Jem Hadar soldiers land on the planet.
Its too late then.
Remember that episode where during negotiations, they discovered a planet that could be used to make White for the Jem Hadar. They were running out of it.
Problem solved, keep the planet away from them right? Let them run out of white.
Julian argued that they should give
them the planet. Because if they didn't, the Dominion would get desperate and launch an all out assault on the Federation that could cost many lives.
They're at war--that's going to happen anyway. On the one hand it makes sense, on the other it sounds really naive and super pacifist.
