Yeah, I think it was a bad move to break these guys up.

A quick question would anyone count the Goauld as a warrior race?
“The boat dipped and swayed and sometimes took on water, but it did not sink; the two brothers had waterproofed it well. I do not know where it finally fetched up, if it ever did; perhaps it reached the sea and sails there forever, like a magic boat in a fairytale. All I know is that it was still afloat and still running on the breast of the flood when it passed the incorporated town limits of Derry, Maine, and there it passes out of this tale forever.” ― Stephen King, It"

It depends on how you qualify them.  If you're talking specifically about the symbiote, then probably no.  What about the actual mature Goauld once it's taken a host, then possibly though perhaps less so than the Jaffa.  The Jaffa however, I would definitely qualify as a warrior race.  That was pretty much their sole purpose, aside from being incubators for the younger symbiote.

Pretty much my thoughts I was having a disscusion elsewhere and I argued that they technically ween't a warrior race they merely enslaved a warrior race.

Well unless we ignore that Hathor episode the Goa'uld created the Jaffa from humans...  Which likely came from a primitive warrior culture from Earth.  Also going by dialog from that Goa'ulded Unas in that early episode (the one with Thor's Hammer and whatnot) where he said that the Goa'uld had become weak or something to that effect then it's possible the Goa'uld were more warrior-like in the olden days but after taking humans as hosts and impersonating their gods they became egomanical, overconfident, overdressing douches.  Some of the stuff on the SGwiki which comes from the RPG guidebooks or whatever would support this idea somewhat (IIRC what I read).
