That statement can be used as an excuse or as a good reason. It depends on how they say it

Technically they sorta are protecting our freedom by killing those overseas that want to kill us non-believers by sneaking in over here, and to burn dead dinosaurs and pollute our cities. Of course since we've put ourselves in as the world police, we're damned if we do and damned if we don't. Most of our "allies" don't want to spend their money or sacrifice their own people. God forbid that we don't do something and everyone flips out about our lack of action when we've gotten so preoccupied with other's problems and stopped taking care of our own. As for do we have to have them go elsewhere to die? No, we shouldn't, but with the economy it would be an influx of laid off military and a further lack of jobs. We'd end up using our forces to make sure our lands are safe and secure, and that would be protecting our freedoms.

Now, Japan/Germany: as of WW2, we effectively removed their way of having a deployable military force, they still have their internal defense such as police and military, but we're there because theirs is so insignificant.
As of right now, Japan and China are the big players in who owns what in the China Sea area, and China is currently performing a forceful expanse of power. Philippines and Taiwan have a steak in those islands, but they don't have enough power to really have any say.
Of course we're in the middle trying to keep everyone playing nice-nice since Japan is still mostly pissed at the US because of the war, and we like our everyday low prices that China gives us since U.S. workers wanted to get paid more than the business was making. (Yeah, we could get into this whole epic failure of U.S. greed, but we're not)
Oh yeah, North Korea! We're there to piss them off by having joint forces exercises with the South and some of the other countries in the area. If the North could do something, they would have, but they're just kinda biding their time and trying to goad us into something.

As for the jewel of the Fleet comment... the GW is a humongous POS presently, and scheduled to be replaced. They're just trying to figure out what to do since NAS Atsugi isn't wanted where it is and the Tokyo area bases will close down and go down nearer to Okinawa.

Yes the military is still needed, no we don't need to be the world police anymore.

Not the tasty kind of bait either. Cheap, low-grade Walmart bait.

It sounds like a wall of text explaining why America should remain in the countries they are in. America is like that annoying relative that insists on giving you that ugly racoon scarf every Christmas. The scarf is ugly, I don't want it, you don't want it, no one wants it. Now get out.

You might not want it, but you might need it someday.

You can expand it to more than dom. Also? If you keep doing this, I'll have to throw you into the dumbgeon.
