How many years of the last century has America been at war?

Around 22? Between WW1 and WW2
  

Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek

It is not just the world wars. I can think of at least four other wars,  and I am sure I am missing some.

Europe has had a short period of peace because:

1. The decision for war was taken from the Western Europeans after WWII and transferred to Moscow and Washington.
2. Moscow and Washington knew that war between them would lead to mutually assured destruction.

A few decades of peace in Europe is not unprecedented. After the defeat of Napoleon, Europe was mostly peaceful for a century...than came the carnage of WWI and WWII.

Also, look at Northern Ireland. These are people who are about as closely related ethnically as one can get...Scottish settlers in Ireland and native Irish, two closely related Celtic peoples.

Now, supposedly Northern Ireland is now peaceful, but the tension is still there ready to explode...a few decades of prosperity has merely allowed the underlying hatreds to be submerged just enough for a very uneasy peace to prevail.

These are some of Belfast, Ireland's 'Peace Walls'. These are walls built between Protestant and Catholic neighborhoods....yep, these people get along so well they cannot even look at each other. This is self-imposed ethnic/religious segregation.

Economic prosperity does have a way of coating over animosities. The West has experienced unprecedented prosperity since the end of WWII, and this has helped to submerge various rivalries for the time being.




The underlying hatreds are certainly still there in Norn Aaarn, but the relative peace lately has been based on rather more than a rise in prosperity.
  

Under Capitalism, Man exploits Man.

Under Communism, it's the exact opposite.

The vast majority of Americans do not "need guns to be safe" just as the vast majority of Canadians do not need a fire extinguisher in their home to stop a raging house fire.

You are awfully concerned about who gets to live.  Why is it so important to you?
