    Del - th elife sentence is easily whittled down.
    That is why now more and more you hear without the possibility of parole.
    In the past even if you get life you only have to serve a portion of that time after which you can become elible for parole.
    That time can come up even faster with good behavior.
    So even with a life sentence you may be out in ten to fifteen years.
    That is why they are trying to change the system.

    That's true and most of these cases I looked at were W/O the possibility. Usually lately anyway if the options are life or death sentence it is Life W/O parole. I did see a few that were, two sentences of 15-life, so I think your probably right when talking about the life sentence deal.

    That's sort of what I mean by developed countries, but you are right that there are some developed countries out there (China, Russia) that I am not sure about. While they do have a much worse human rights record than most western nations, I don't believe that something like what this soldier did would be tolerated. On the other hand, some of the other things the US has been in trouble for such as torture techniques, would cause much controversy in those countries, if anybody even found out about it.
