    There's rules to be followed. Failure to obey the rules could cost you your life. Check into the UCMJ, it's more harsh than international or civilian law. The UCMJ applies anywhere in the world to any U.S. service personal, where as international law applies only to the countries that signed the treaty. Also, even if you don't get the death sentence you're life is ruined because you get a dishonorable discharge and can only flip burgers till you die.

    And when Al Qaeda chops off an American's head in some hell hole is that violating international law? Of course not. Al Qaeda isn't subject to international law.

    Well... if there's no proof... there's no crime. Unless, of course, he took pictures like at Abu Ghraib.
