This is nonsense. You can't reverse a logical implication. If B follows from A, A doesn't necessarily follow from B. The Rwandian butchery, which can probably be subsumed under that catch-all of "ethnic conflicts", doesn't tell us anything about the influence of TV violence on (children in) Western society.
