world peace

  • Pax Americana

    To the Editor:

    I have been wondering how many people are familiar with this term. And, for those who have heard it, who knows what it refers to?

    From Latin, it literally means “American Peace.” However, in the modern sense, it has come to indicate “the military and economic position of the United States in relation to other nations.” Consider the evolution of weaponry in the last half century, and understand that the United States is the only “superpower” in the world!
