The author misses the point about why we “should” go to war. If our national survival is at stake them we should go to war and it should must be a violent and brutal war with no quarter drawn. It must be a war with the intention of removing the enemy from the face of the earth and leave his society a smoking ruin of death and despair for the few that are left alive. In this manner we would seldom need to go to war. From 1948 to the present this is what keep World War III from starting between the USA and the USSR. Both knew that in case of war both would be totally destroyed.
If our enemy thinks he can go to war with us on a basis of limited retaliation by the USA he might decide to make war against us. If he knows in his heart that if he goes to war with the USA he will be destroyed and all the he knows and loves will die, he will not make war against us.
This is not rocket science.

“all the he knows and loves will die”
I don't know if the “love” part applies to muslims.
Least ways, Jihadists......the true muslims.
