Is war Overestimated or Underestimated?

Is this a question we can really answer?

We, the people who have never witnessed it or lost a loved to it?

The Politicians try to say that it is overestimated, but would they really know?

Would the soldiers who have fought in a war, or are fighting one now, be right to say that war is Underestimated?

So which is the right answer?

Which would You be more willing to believe?

The politicians or the soldiers?

Or would you agree that the only ones who have the answer,

Are the ones who have fought and died in one?

Is war Overestimated or Underestimated?

So I ask again, to put it differently,

Is this a question we, the living, can actually answer?
