I really enjoy your site. Please tell me that you see some difference between these two pictures beyond semantics.

Well, of course there's a difference.

What happened on the right is a common tragedy of warfare; so common there's a name for it.

What happened on the left was an uncommon tragedy of immense proportions; so utterly without sense that there really are no words for it.

If you're asking which I think the worse of the two, I'd say the tragedy on the left, obviously.

But does that really mean anything? It's like asking which is worse; the murder where a guy is stabbed 5 times or the murder where a guy's stabbed 50 times. The victims of both are just as dead no matter which comes out on top (or bottom as the case may be).
