The federation hunted the Maquis down as animals after Cardassia helped its DMZ colonists break the treaty - but the federation didn't fail them? Really?

A federation using biological weapons against a federation colony (which threatened to kill men, women, children - citizens of the UFP -, and, in all probability, killed a number of them) because one maquis - Eddington - used a biological weapon, is not a federation that failed its maquis citizens? Ridiculous.
Also - nice to see the ethics of the federation are the ethics of war criminals.

The federation let the its DMZ citizens be massacred without doing a single thing - I guess that, as the federation saw it, it had only rights over them (to hunt them down and poison their colonies for breaking its laws) but no obligations (to protect them).
And this is the federation not failing the Maquis.

Which part of "the colonists chose to live under the Cardassian government" wasn't clear to you?
Which part of - watch 'The Maquis' again - is not clear to you?
Among the many revelations you will have is that the colonists chose to live in the DMZ under federation government.
Also, if the Maquis were really under Cardassian government, then the federation had no right to hunt them down as criminals, etc.

As for the rest of your post, your attempts to blame the victims are transparent enough to be clear to everyone who caress to look at the depicted situation even half-way objectively.

Okie-dokie what?

You're obviously wrong, but don't have the courage to own up to it, I see.
