Sisko: You know what I see, Mister Eddington? I see victims. Not victims of Starfleet or the Federation, but victims of you, The Maquis.
You sold these people on the dream that they could go back to those homes and shops and schools, but you know they never can. And the longer you keep that hope alive, the longer these people will suffer.
Sisko turns to face Eddington.
Sisko: Go ahead, shoot me.
