John Stuart Mill would be rolling in his grave if he saw how you generalized his quote. You're so close to making sense, but you fail to make that final connection and understand that protecting are freedoms does not justify preemptive war.

We just want to be left alone. We aren’t imperialists. We just want to preserve our freedom.
