DS9 story arc: Klingon-Cardassian War

The Klingons invade Cardassia Prime and execute the government officials, installing an overseer that allows conditions of squalor and plague to ravage populations on Cardassia and its colonies. The occupation is defined by barbarity and cruelty by the Klingon forces, and is an overall humanitarian crisis.
And that is related to my point how? Yes, Klingons are apt to use warfare as a means to achieve a "diplomatic" end, but that is not the only tool in their arsenal, certainly not internally. You seem to be under the impression that I propose a system of Klingon diplomacy free from violence and bloodshed; I am not.
