I think you mis-remember (though correct me if I do). War was thrust upon the Federation and the Alpha quadrant. As the result of a stable wormhole the Gamma and Alpha quads became within reach of one another and it was the Changelings who, out of fear, ordered first strikes and started the war.

I am generally against unilateralism as either valid policy or explaination. It's on par with blaming the victim for being raped.
