That is so very untrue. There are many democratic stable countries that do not have the death penalty, because their culture has evolved past that primative stage.

"primative stage" You should go to Iraq and tell them they have to get past the "primatice stage". Cuz as of right now in Iraq people blow themselves up or use car bombs to kill tens of people. Now what punishment is the equivalent of 50 people dead? I think giving a man life in prison for killing 50 people is crazy he deserves death. You get what you give.

Wow... Those countries on that list that did enact the death penalty sure are harsh places to live. Many are ruled by dictators too.

I just laugh at the people that think the US is the best nation in the world. We are just the best in the world at what we do... consume.
