Adding to the already scaled back military from the Khitomer Accords
See above. The "scaling back" is a dubious proposition considering all the OTHER shit Starfleet has to deal with, especially by the 2360s when the Cardassians have been lurking around for decades already. The newer ships built during/after the Khitomer accords are considerably more powerful, both tactically and systematically, than the pre-khitomer vessels they replaced.
This does raise an interesting question -- could this have contributed to the deteriorating relations with the Klingons? Perhaps there really was some kind of START process layed out, and from the Klingon's POV, the Federation exploited their weakness, using technicalities and loopholes to circumvent provisions of the agreement.
