We're Number 11!


Alison has the story of the Global Peace Index:

The Index is constructed from 24 indicators of external and internal measures of peace, including import and export of weapons, percentage of displaced and jailed people, military expenditure as a percentage of GDP, level of violent crime, and war deaths.

Japan is the only G8 country in the top 10.

#11 Canada

#97 USA

And Crabgrass has the (bestest) comment:

¢rÄßG®äŠŠ said...If they made peace an Olympic event, you can bet your ass the U.S. would get serious.

Maybe that's the answer.
