Well Sisko's anger towards Picard is very understandable. Picard's face was the one on the viewscreen the day he and Jake lost everything. That face was mercilessly telling them it was all futile and any concept of sacrifice was meaningless. And he pretty much was right, that fleet at Wolf 359 didn't accomplish a thing other than slowing the Cube down long enough for the Enterprise to save the day.

Years later that same face is ordering him, a single dad, to take his son to be rasied in a Cardassian shithole in the ass end of space, living with a bunch of religious yokel natives. When he presumes to point this fact out, that same face that took away his wife then presumed to lecture him about duty, when he had already given his dearest blood for it at Wolf 359.

It's not fair at all, but it's very human. That's really what Emissary was about. Sisko moving on from that day. Even the Prophets saw that from the beginning.
Picard outranked Sisko, didn't he? And didn't Picard face "duty" when being ordered to track a fake Cardassian metagenic weapon? Or "duty" when being ordered to engage the Borg Cube in the first place?

lol.. I like how you believe your judgment/opinion is so binding here. You only one man, not a God
I like how you apparently missed the whole point of the post being what Sisko would likely be thinking of the situation and then just pull some random insults out of your ass at my expense that have nothing to do with reality. You are a true gentleman and scholar, sir. Got any more pearls of wisdom?
