Nozzi: Did Muhammad himself misunderstand the Koran?

Reader comment on item: A Saudi Prince's Threat to the Obama Administration
in response to reader comment: ALLAH'S MISSION TO MUSLIMS IS ONLY TO PREACH INSTEAD OF DESTROYING IDOLS-QURAN 64:12

Submitted by Plato (India), May 31, 2009 at 10:56

>> As the phrase, the duty of our Messenger, is mentioned in Quran 64:12 with the phrase, only to convey (the message) plainly, it implies that Allah's mission for muslims is only to preach instead of fighting, violence, riots and/or etc., instead of that includes fighting, violence and/or etc.<<

This means that Muhammad himself misunderstood the Koran as he went on bloody raids and wars no less than 80 times in 10 years. Was the battle of Badr only in the imagination of the hadith and sira writers?
