If I remember correctly, the first attack came as a surprise (assuming you're talking about the first Xindi attack). Also, Starfleet didn't have that many ships. By the end of the show, there were only a handful of NX-class ships. And before the NX, all Earth had was freighters and smaller ships.
When Enterprise came home after the first attack, and was attacked by the Klingons, there were Armed Starfleet ships there to cover their back.
When the Xnidi came the second time, they were nowhere to be found..
Also I found it odd there was no Vulcan ship, given how close relations were..
That said, I wasn't a huge fan of Enterprise at all.. it had a few good eps, and a lot of fluff.
Same with Voyager..
I loved TNG, and most of DS9.
TOS is a little campy for my taste, big given the time when it was made, I can't fault them.
