“If a man has an apartment stacked to the ceiling with newspapers we call him crazy. If a woman has a trailer house full of cats we call her nuts. But when people pathologically hoard so much cash that they impoverish the entire nation, we put them on the cover of Fortune magazine and pretend that they are role models.”

First-Ever 'Peacefulness' Ranking Launched; U.S. Scores Low

Fri., Jun. 8, 2007

WASHINGTON, Jun 8 (OneWorld) - The first study to rank countries around the world according to their peacefulness and identify the drivers that create and sustain peace was released here last week.

Norway took the crown for most peaceful nation among the 121 surveyed by the Global Peace Index, followed closely by New Zealand, Denmark, Ireland, and Japan. The United States and Iran received nearly equal -- and low -- scores, placing 96 and 97 on the list.

Iraq placed dead last, just below Sudan and Israel.

good find, Guard!
I am surprised US ended up as high as they did on the list - but then I guess it was about peacefulness in one's country - not about how aggressive (or peaceful acting) a nation is.

Yeah I'm surprised too. Surprised as well that it was about countries at peace within their borders. Oddly the US got a good standing, considering we have some 20,000 murders per year...
