    Hello,

    If I had multi-picks, I'd pick Arabs and Africa, they're the savagest beasts I've seen, but oh gosh, that's completely politically incorrect for you liberals and leftists.

    Arabs are taught to hate Jews from birth and their latest fashion is a vest strapped with suicide bombs and blow themselves up. Africa, well, let's say, they sure know how to fight a war that pales in comparsion to US Civil War or recent European wars.

    China is definitely one of the most violent countries in the world, committing murders in form of abortions by hundreds of millions of people due to their policy of one-child per family and traditional preference of males. Moreover, China has one of the worst human rights record.

          Yep we're a violent society all right. We seem to have fine-tuned it at many levels. Watch out! The lead gang member is the president. You're either with us or against us. Jihadi's beware! It can't be called a crusade (because the ultra-violent PC crowd will destoroy you if you do). But a counter-Jihad has been launched. The world must tremble at the juggernaut that has been loosed. Only Bin Laden was hoping for this when 9/11 was launched. All others must now join him cowering in fear.

            Africa is clearly the most violent region on Earth right now. There are something like a dozen wars being waged in some form or another on the continent.

            Europe is another very violent continent. Widespread peace only recently came to the region. Wars fought not only shaped the world, but accounts for a large portion of the estimated 100,000,000 plus people killed in war since recorded history began.

            The US is certainly a violent location. Homicide rates here in America exceed most 1st World Nations.

              This image (of USA) is given by our own media too, because it’s always better to speak about problems in other countries than in your. I don’t know the crime rates in Europe and in USA, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it was more or less the same, or even lower in USA for some types of crime. Russia has the higher crime rate in the world with Colombia. So I would say Russia concerning countries in peace.
              Otherwise it’s Africa, that’s sure !
              And concerning the less violent, I vote for Japan.

                I saw somewhere that the French crime rate went higher than the US crime rate about the year 2000. Don't know what the crime rate is now though.

                  Yes it's true, the "funny" thing here is that you don't hear that alot in our media
                  Which is not necessarely a bad thing, when you think about the impact of insecurity in media on the last presidential elections in France.

                    One of the things not mentioned here is that every area of the world has a different "sort" of violence.
                    In Africa, it's mainly tribal fighting.
                    In the Middle East, to a great degree, it's a violence initiated by governments or their proxies.
                    While in the US, it's more of a societal violence: high crime rates, etc...

                      In France the main crime is batterd men by their wifes.
                      You don't know how men in can suffer in France due to women violence.
                      It's a nightmare

                        US friends,
                        I appologize, following the Chuck quote, I went on Internet and read this:
                        Le taux de criminalité en France a atteint en 2001 le chiffre record de 4 244 crimes pour 100 000 habitants.

                        Translation crime rate in France is 4244 for 100 000 inhabitants, Higher than US.

                        France seems to be a more violent country as US, shame on us

                          France has a higher crime rate then the US? I am stunned. What kind of crimes are we talking about? Not all crimes are the same.

                          How are the Germans doing?
                          Get the US out of NATO, now!

                            You should differentiate between violent crime and other crime.

                            I bet half of those crimes are employers working employees more than 35 hrs a week .

                            Compare violent crime and I'd be surpried if France had a higher crime rate than the US.
                            "Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the government’s purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding."
