Well that is the problem, the GW boys aren't confused about war
they fully well know that all you need to win a war is a Gundam. I
think the very idea of an invunerable-super-robot defies the horror
and confusion of war.

Not to mention the video game violence of Gundam Wing, you fly
all over the place, and hit the fire button a lot. That to me isn't war
I don't even really consider it fighting.
