Why should we lose all of our love ones just to win a battle. Our love ones are more valuable than just any kind of battle. A battle is something you want and can win another time but what about the people we love and care for. Those people wouldn't be able to come back alive. Imagine if someone else had said that they would give you up just to win a battle. You would probably feel bad. Same thing but it's you to a different person.
