Global Peace Index

According to Vision for Humanity Norway is the most peaceful country
in the world. Iraq is the least peaceful. The top 5 are Norway, New Zealand, Denmark, Ireland, and Japan. The bottom 5 (out of 121) are Nigeria, Russia, Israel, Sudan, and Iraq.

The index is based on 24 indicators divided into three categories: ongoing domestic and international conflict, safety and security, and militarization.

What? The US is 97? I see only one way to improve our standing... invade the other 96.

I wonder where Iraq would have rated under Saddam Hussein.
