Responsible nations and rogue states

So, if I understand this correctly, the gist of the author's argument (based on Henry Kissinger's work) is that the United States should be more willing to engage in 'limited' wars with states we define as rogue and put off the vibe that we would be willing to use nuclear weapons if they don't acquiesce to our demands. And the unthinkable alternative is we go back to pre-WWII days where the United States did not actually go about attacking other nations unless they attacked us first. 

And doing former would make us a responsible nation in good standing merely asserting its interests and protecting itself and not a rogue state engaged in antagonizing other states, starting wars, and threatening to annihilate millions of people in a nuclear holocaust.

Maybe I should rename the blog Outside the Asylum.
