Why do we thank the Lord of miracles for the wars, wouldn't it have been better for us to escape and avoid the war

The wording is about the wars you waged against our ancestors, and we were to thank God for treating our enemy as a man of war in the measure of God (Exodus 15) and fighting our wars, as it was said, "And with us, God our God, helped us and fought our wars" (2 Chronicles 27:8), and also that the We fought them in Egypt (שמות יד, כה) , and also other readings in which we find a similar expression.

And we would say that if God had not fought there would have been no chance of victory, (and it is not at all a matter of the heroism of the Hasmoneans that Josephus described, and Josephus would not have been the purifier of the minds in Jerusalem as I extended in another article), and regarding what was said do not be afraid because many who are with us approve of them (מלכים ב' ו, טז).

And the measure of war is to take revenge on the enemies as they deserve without mercy, as it is said that as for rewards, as for one, he will pay heat to his captives, and to his enemies, he will pay retribution to his enemies. (ישעיהו נט, יח)And it is also written, Thus said the Lord, the armies of the children of Israel and the children of Judah together, and all who were among them, possessed them from us, who fought, Their redeemer is strong, the Lord of hosts, whose name is adversary, adversary, adversary, in order to pacify the land and provoke the inhabitants of Babylon (ירמיהו נ, לג לד), and this verse opens the Hanukkah midrash.
