I am looking for title and author of a story where earth was trapped behind an energy field because humans were the greatest enemy. Years later, the alliance comes to free earth to help in a war and Humanity is living a seemingly bucolic existence but that is due to extreme tech advancement and when the shield is removed, humanity takes the entire earth with them to go fight. The aliens who released earth say " I almost feel sorry for our enemies"
