More to do with how weaselly it is, and not strength in and of itself. It's a matter of honor.

Buying the slaves' freedom and letting the Breen go and get away with the dishonorable act of having enslaved your Daferi allies in the first place is a stain on your honor. Regardless of how you get the Daferi off the ship (and I do feel there should be an alternate way to latinum), the only honorable end to that encounter results in the deaths of the Breen for having committed the crime of staining the honor of both the Klingons and the Daferi. Period.
