In the "Yesterday's Enterprise" alternate timeline, the Klingons were kicking Starfleet's ass. That would suggest the Klingons are capable of defeating the UFP militarily.
This was why I chose Klingons as the victor in such a conflict, although I do appear to be in the minority at present.
The problem is the lack of details. We know nothing of the actual war in "Yesterday's Enterprise."
In DS9, the Martok Changeling seemed to believe that the Federation would eventually get its act together and push the Klingons back into their own territory. Also, in "The Way of the Warrior," a task force of nine starships seemed to pose a serious threat to several dozen Klingon warships.
