"We're #96!"

Got this from the chair of our peacemaking committee. It is a ranking of the peacefulness of nations from Vision of Humanity: Peace and Sustainability...the Cornerstone of Survival in the 21st Century. Here is the description:
This section lists the results of the analysis into each nation's peace. This is the prime table in the Global Peace Index section. The countries are ranked from most peaceful to least peaceful, highlighting their ranking as well as their score. You can click on a country to see the detail of its peace indicators and drivers.
The United States ranks 96 just ahead of Iran and behind Yemen.

  1. Wow! they ranked us higher than Iran? They were very generous. Last I checked we had troops stationed all over the world. The Iranian military must be busy busy busy if they're more hawkish than us.
