omg... you're just as bad as them...

Starfleet knows whats's best for these people, right? Starfleet has a right to force it's principals on others, yes? By any means, you would say? The Starfleet way is the only right way? Anyone who feels different is just displaying a need of being shot?

This is the exact opposite of everything Trek is supposed to be about. Accepting other species, cultures and ways of thinking.

Exactly. By helping one, you may doom another. Starfleet has a policy of non-interference. It's there for a reason. Helping one faction in an internal struggle is unacceptable. If help/support is to be offered (like medi al supplies), it has to be offered equally to every faction.
