Well, it certainly is possible for one side to committ more atrocities than another. Look at Rwanda. It was demonstrably planned. We had accurate intelligence that it was deliberate, and the preponderance of atrocity was committed by the Hutu. Regardless of whatever criminal acts the Tutsi RPF had committed beforehand (or since), the Hutu committed a genocide. Legally, ethically, morally, and politically, the Rwandan leadership bore a preponderance of criminal culpability for that as well.

That's why the statistical analysis was based on the ratio of convicted per civilian casualty. That way, you can compare small wars to large wars. The question isn't who killed more. The question is whether the justice system is impartial in its treatment of the killers.
