Peace isn't bad, but it's a fallacy to assume it benefits everyone. 'Peace' comes at the definition of the winning party.

In the case of the DMZ it didn't benefit the people who had shed blood, sweat and tears to build a life and a home for themselves. I can see their point of view over a cosseted and protected Starship Captain who can Warp away and never have to bother himself with them again as much as I can see his point of view from the high ground of ending a conflict.
