Terrorist organizations must be dealt with differently than legitimate military organizations because of their very nature. Collateral damage and innocent deaths among the civilian population exacerbates the problem that terrorism causes. Conventional tactics involving air strikes, cruise missiles, drone attacks...those are not effective counter terrorism weapons (unless you know the terrorist is hiding all by his lonesome or with his pals). JDAM's on a village or mosque do not help defeat terrorism when you kill and maim innocents. It fertilizes it.
You can save the callous, gung ho oratory for someone who truly doesn't understand the subject. It's not nearly as simple as you want it to be.
