First, I'm not going to say that the Iraq war isn't bloody. Rather, it blows my mind to think about other conflicts that are orders of magnitude worse that receive far less attention.

Second: "Bosnia ethnic war"? Unlike all those other wars where the ethnicity has nothing to do with the fighting.
The MSM has a problem talking about that war, and I think it relates a lot to the War Nerd's commentary about how journalists don't try to understand certain conflicts, e.g. calling the multitude of African "tribal" wars "senseless".

Third: this graphic is a bit misleading. Who are the civilians in the wrong place at the wrong time, and who are the civilians that were the explicit targets of violence? Further, which side did what?
