One thing that irritates me somewhat is the use of the term "Atrocity" at the drop of a hat. Frankly; when compared to those real atrocities of WW2... no atrocities happened in the Civil War. Nothing comes even close; and when compared to other conflicts across history the ACW is still grossly lacking of the brutalities that seem outright prevelant in such conflicts.
The atrocities that have taken place in several countries in Africa since the early 1970s and accelerating up to today are the worst of all time for sheer brutality and unimgainable numbers of men, women and children involved. Worse, there appears to be no let up and no solution.
