The Contra Costa Times published an opinion piece about the horror of war by Politics Professor Stephen Sloane. In his op-ed “The horror of war -- so what else in new?” Sloane writes that the public should not be surprised at news of another war atrocity. Tragically, he says accounts of war crimes were common in classic texts by Homer and Aeschylus, and were all too present in the real wars of Vietnam, WWII and other instances of man’s inhumanity such as in Bosnia and Darfur. Read Steve Sloane’s op-ed.
