Domestically, or on the foreign front?
At home, there appear to be pockets of peace and violence in different areas, but on the whole, the place is on edge, with a greater potential for fatal violence breaking out at any time, given the proliferation of guns. That was my impression of the place, anyhow.

Internationally, not so much. The 'can-do' attitude which is so admirable in the fields of science and discovery seems to lead America into situations, conflicts and wars that she finds it difficult to extricate herself from.

No. The United States is not at peice.

Not in the slightest, either at home or abroad.

I think there is no clear answer to this question.

We want a peaceful life, but we're not going to shy away from difficult confrontations either.

at this time? No. We are a young nation we are still developing.

I'm not really sure that's correct, and I don't see what that has to do with war or peace.

As a nation, we're a hundred years older than Germany. We've had somewhere between six and seven generations since we declared independence. When exactly would you expect us to stop developing and what does that have to do with war or peace anyway?

I've been to MANY other countries, and the U.S. is A LOT more peaceful than anywhere else I've been. So, in comparison, YES, the United States is a very peaceful country.

Not at the current time. Compared to many countries it is. But you could say that about any country of western infulence.

war is bad!

Peaceful in so much that a rabid dog is friendly.

No, but the entire world has been and will continue to be in constant conflict. It is not like the US is exclusively non-peaceful.

agreed.

No, definitely not.

Relatively speaking, yes. But our government isn't very peaceful.
