In short, ENT makes perfect sense if you don't focus just on a few Spock lines but on the entire picture which includes first contact with the other three founding members of the Federation, the slow development of trust between them and the Romulans attempets to undermine this trust.
The point of the thread is to visualize based on Spock's words.
If you want to force shove ENT into that feel free. But the point is the visualize and use your imagination.

Tell a story on how you think it goes.

Furthermore Spock's statement only makes sense if there was a temporary technological regress during the war (before and afterwards warp technology is used). If the war is bloody, if the Romulan threaten to conquer Earth you don't need warp vessels, simple impulse drive will suffice. And H-bombs are probably simpler to produce than antimatter bombs aka photon torpedoes.
What do mean...impulse ships capable of warp?
