The West has evolved. Americans - Smith's audience - generally prefer to avoid force. Europeans are even more reluctant.

My Answer >>>>> Dr. Pipes , recent evidence suggests against your above mentioned point about Americans generally prefering avoiding force.

Look who is committing a surge of so many troops currently in Afghanistan. Who is committing more and more UAV attacks in the Afghanistan-Pakistan region which is killing thousands of innocent people? Who is talking about using drones in Yemen and Somalia ? Who is talking about possible military opeartions and regime change in Iran ?

I hope you know the answer very well Dr. Pipes.

Another point can you kindly give me some examples which suggests that Muslims are trying to use overwhelming and brutal force in very recent times to spread their faith and influence either in the West or elsewhere in the world ? I do not know about any example as such.

Take Care.
