Which country is the most peaceful country of five permanent members such as America, China, Russia, England, and France?
Joshua McCarthy, studied International Relations& Leadership Studies at Atlantic College (2016)
I assume you are talking aboutthe permanent members of the United Nations Security Council.
First and foremost, England isnot a permenant member of the United Nations Security Council. England is acountry within the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. As theUnited Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is a Sovereign State, ithas representation in the United Nations, whilst its constituent countries(England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland) do not. Therefore, thepermenant seat on the UN Security Council is held not by England, but by theUK.
I think it is reasonable toassume that, without a shadow of a doubt, we can rule out the USA as the mostpeaceful member of the Security Council. The USA spends over double thecombined total of the other members on its armed forces every year, and hasbeen at war for roughly 95% of its few-century-long existence. The USA has aterrible habit of getting involved in any conflict it can, and has spent mostof the last century slaughtering civilians in order to overcome the “evilempire” of Communism. As of the present, the USA is busy destabilising theMiddle East in an ideological “war on terror”, despite funding terrorist groups(and arming them) via dealings with Saudi Arabia. The USA is also very closewith the state of Israel, which is highly militaristic (mandatory conscriptionfor all citizens comes to mind).
The existence of NATO means wecan essentially rule out the UK and France, as NATO nations pretty much followthe US lead on near enough all matters of international security. Just look atTony Blair blindly following Bush into Iraq or Theresa May's air strikes onSyria at Trump's behest. France and the UK are also major nuclear powers, whichoften is not indicative of a peaceful State.
Next we come to Russia, who canonce again be ruled out as the most peaceful member. Putin's recent moves,annexing Crimea through a military campaign which had seen trench warfarereturn to Europe, and having ex-spies attacked with chemical nerve agents halfthe world away, are not really the things you expect from a peaceful country.
So we come to China. Which is inno way peaceful. Citizens “disappeared” for exercising freedoms. Major policebrutality. A huge military. Rubbing shoulders with North Korea. Stillthreatening the independence of Taiwan on a daily basis. China is certainly notpeaceful.
So the basic conclusion is; noneof the permenant members of the UN Security Council are at all peaceful. Theyare all violent, warlike States that place their own ideologies above humanlife. Why do you think they're permenant members? Because they have the powerto make themselves so maybe?
北约的存在意味着，我们基本上可以把英国和法国排除在外，因为北约国家在几乎所有国际安全问题上几乎都跟随美国的脚步。看看托尼?布莱尔(Tony Blair)盲目地追随布什(Bush)进入伊拉克，或者特朗普下令特蕾莎?梅(Theresa May)对叙利亚发动空袭就知道了。法国和英国也是主要的核大国，这往往不代表是一个和平的国家。

According to Global Peace Index 2018, all these members of thepermanent council are pretty bad but the U.K. is best at the 57th place,followed by France at 61st, China at 112th, U.S. at 121st, and Russia at 154thplace.
Very far from the winners – Iceland, New Zealand,Austria, Portugal, Denmark, Canada, Czechia, Singapore – top 8.
Well, other methodologies and priorities could yield verydifferent rankings.
根据《2018年全球和平指数》(Global Peace Index 2018)，所有常任理事国的表现都相当糟糕，但英国在第57位最出色，其次是法国第61位，中国第112位，美国第121位，俄罗斯第154位。

China if you go by the number of enemy soldiers and enemycivilians which each of these countries have killed in the last 20 years…
Funny isnt it? Everybody accussing China of being the aggressorbut actually China hasnt waged war yet in this century. China hasnt invadedanother country. China hasnt bombed or killed soldiers or civilians in anyother country.
Makes you wonder why China is seen as the threat and the causefor global instability accoridng to the media.
Maybe its fear of yellow people just like how everybody isscared of black people. At the end of the day the Chinese havent done anythingaggresive and all the white people are freaking out…..

Probably China. They don't meddlein other countries’ business and don't tell other people how to live theirlives.
And while Russia gets a bad rapin the media they too don't meddle unless something affects them directly.
France mainly limits her meddlingto former African colonies and often in conjunction with the ruling elitesthere.
Britain still acts as if she hadan airforce and navy of note and ruled the waves. But she does have significantcultural influence and gets away with having career idiots in power yet again.
The US is the primary bully ofhistory but somehow believes it is doing others a favour even though nobodyasked them to. This makes her the most dangerous country on earth.
Historically, the United Statesdominated the genocide of the indians, the British invaded almost the entireearth, Russia won the world's largest territory through aggression, the Frenchstill colonies in Africa, and the four countries in more than 100 years agohave been to Beijing, by guns had some cultural relics.Now, I'm sorry, I don'tremember which war the United States missed in the last decade?Did Britainleave its American friends alone?Just two months ago, France was setting offfireworks in Syria.Russia, on the other hand, is not leaving.Where is China?Myfriend, you will say that China is the most evil, they are actually in theirown home by boat tour!They confiscated toy guns!They discriminate against Isis!

China has nevercolonized or waged wars abroad.
Peaceful China as described byits current Leader:
It was the greatest contributiontowards the whole of human race, made by China, is to prevent its 1.3 billionpeople from hunger.Statementduring his visit to Mexico (11 February 2009) as quoted in "China's Xi named to oversee military, a step closerto presidency" in International BusinessTImes (18 October 2010)
There are some bored foreigners,with full stomachs, who have nothing better to do than point fingers at us …First, China doesn't export Revolution; second, China doesn't export hunger andpoverty; third, China doesn't come and cause you headaches, what more is thereto be said?As quoted in "China's Xi named to oversee military, a stepcloser to presidency" in International Business Times (18October 2010).
