I don't think Clausewitz prefers war as the solution to conflicts. He sure wasn't a pacifist, but he wasn't a militarist. He just said war actually is a mean to achieve political goals, not that it should be.
He explains that a war without political goals makes no sense, not that political goals should be achieved by wars.
Maybe if he wasn't a german he would not be considered a militarist today.
Reading his book will teach you a lot on he stupidity of most wars, and he gives a very realistic view of what a war actually is.

the "Art of War" can be found online is at Sonshi.com. They have done their own translation based on the Yin-chueh-shan texts discovered in 1972 which pre-date all other known copies of the manuscript by 1000 years. The site also includes online translations of virtually all the major strategic classics.
