What is peace and when was the last time The United States was at peace? I had this philosophical question pop into my mind while at work today. When was the last time we as a country were at peace and how long were we there?
The Gulf War ended in February of 1991 and then we helped during the Iraqi Kurdish Civil War in 96. So for like, 5 years or so, The U.S. was not actively in war or supporting someone in war. That’s kind of depressing.
I’ve been alive for 32 years, and counting the cold war which ended in 89, there have only been 5 years of peace for my country.
