BULLS***: USA has had a bunch of internal wars. The indians for one, and there was the race war for another, and of course the occupation of the south after the civil war (which basically extended the real time of the Civil War for years). You could also consider Probation a war. US locked up the Japanese for WWII. I would not consider that worth a peace prize. US also has the highest Incarceration rate, and crime rate that well exceeds EU countries.
 
I could also point out there has been the war on drugs going on for at least 50 years (shots have been fired over this war).
 
Now maybe if US were actually a confederation of States as was originally intended, then maybe we could be compared to the EU. However the the rights of the State were confescated long ago. There were some good reasons the states no longer have the power they were suppose to, but there are also reasons they still should have those powers.
