In the last 3,400 years of human history the world has been completely at peace only 268 years.

In the 240 years of the United States, the country has been at peace only 18 years, at least to the public’s knowledge.

Not a lot of time to be a pacifist.

Just out of curiosity, when were those 268 years?

I highly doubt the validity of Al's statement considering there is little historical record of the new world prior to contact with Europeans.

I believe his reference to 3,400 years was regarding recorded world and global history. There seems to have been something warlike going on someplace at any given time during those years, considering Asia, Africa, South America, the Middle East, Europe, etc
The interesting number involves the 240 years of U.S. history.
