To my (also limited) knowledge of the crusades I think that I would agree with you. I think that in the acts that they were trying to protect/take back what was already theirs rather than trying to expand and to gain more power it was justifiable to take military action. If they had sat back and done nothing all of their territory would have been taken over, many more lives lost, and they would not have had control of the Holy Land.
