And my point still stands - if we show the Breen hostages could work against us, we might invite even more abuse. Better sacrifice some weak Deferi now then lose the entire conflict because you showed the Breen your weakness.

This is the kind of distinction I just expect from Klingon and Federation takes on problem solving. Klingons should be far more willing to be ruthless and aggressive. Impress your enemy with your willpower and strength. The Federation won't do that if there are other options on the table. But these other options are preferred by the Feds because Feds and Klinks have different moral ideals.
I was not argueing right or wrong merely looking at it from a different angle.
