But what I don't see is what good destroying homes does. It makes people angry, but what else? Killing or arresting terrorists makes a difference, but bulldozing a house? It just pisses folks off. It certainly won't prevent a suicidal crazy from walking into a bus station or a crowded nightclub.

The same thing was said about Area bombing during WWII. It made Germans angry at first and steeled their resolve. Then, eventually, it demoralized them. Then it made even some of the more ardent nazis realize how futile the war effort was. Then we won.
