Apart from this I would like to add on that in the mythology of India both the epics ramayan and Mahabharat had wars but it is notable that first the heroes both Shri Ram ( and army) and Shri krishan alobg with Arjun and Family demanded peaceful diplomatic agreement firstly and war was secondary. In the case if the other party wants destruction, it is their lack of knowledge or rather-
" Vinashkaale vipreet budhi".
However, war leads to destruction only. In the case of mahabharat only a handful of people were alive after the 13 day war who were of a same team, so peace was derermined. In the Ramayan also, Ravan and his supporters died and Shri Ram had been always peaceful, if he was not have been so, he would have never accepted the exile.
Basically war became a need of situation not a source of peace. It was about ending evils and peace was never a criteria of requirements.
