    Sudan is better than Iraq by one point. Don't want to go to either one but if I had to go somewhere, I'd rather it be Iraq than Sudan.

    Yeah, read the list. It's a turkey. Written by lefties for other lefties.

    I agree. It was more meant as a fun thread and for a laugh. As I sort of said in my very first post.

    No criticism. Just looking through the sponsors and supporting organizations reads like a who's who of surrender monkeys.

    I like the way they increase the US for being less peaceful because we possess advanced weapons. If anything that should lower the equation. This just shows you what happens to your brain with a diet of granola and tofu.

    Well Germany ranked 12 on the list.

    Seriously though guys, I would take this with a grain of salt. These kind of things are made up by liberal desk jockies who make up statistics and opinions based off of never having been to the country.
