Imperceptibly More Peaceful Than Iran

Shocking.

The United States and Iran finished in a virtual dead heat, and way down the list, in a magazine’s assessment of the peacefulness of 121 countries.

The United States placed 96th and Iran came in 97th on the global index released Wednesday by researchers at the Economist magazine.

Norway was rated at the country most at peace, followed by New Zealand, Denmark, Ireland and Japan. Iraq was in last place, with Sudan and Israel just above.

About 24 indicators were used, including wars fought in the last five years, arms sales, prison populations and incidence of crime.
