During wars, it is not uncommon to hear that efforts are being made to ensure that children, for example, are protected; yet it is on record that these same people they claim to be protecting lose their lives, at worst, or get injured at the least.
The second premise provided is that wars destroy property. This seems to be one of the most conspicuously evident of all the premises given.

During wars, properties that have been gathered over many years turn into ashes within a couple of minutes, leaving a permanent and horrific dent in the lives of people.
