Expanded[edit]

I expanded the article. Added to the earlier history. Still need some more recent history info. J. D. Redding 14:47, 9 June 2009 (UTC)

Basic[edit]

This is as of yet a very crude and inadequate description of the Pax Americana. PA is not really a reality or a mantle directly assumed by the US consciously at any point - you will never hear a policy pronouncement referring to it. It is more a contemporaneous label applied to classify apparent American hegemony in imperialistic terms; the Pax Romana/Britannica being descriptors directly assumed by Imperial precursors of the United States. --Corinthian (talk) 03:12, 19 June 2009 (UTC)

I added your quote. AEC —Preceding unsigned comment added by 189.229.54.60 (talk) 05:35, 18 October 2009 (UTC)

American imperialism?[edit]

Really? Did i just see that? This violates Wiki's stance on neutrality in so many ways that i can't begin to describe them all and still have time for the day. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.181.114.227 (talk) 04:05, 30 September 2010 (UTC)

No, its required by the neutrality stance because of that attitude, also see —Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.140.35.147 (talk) 09:11, 15 March 2011 (UTC)

Duration?[edit]

Since Pax Americana is suppose to be a period of relative peace, can we attach some kind of time period to this? Is it 1946 to present? or 1991 to present? or 1991 to September 11, 2001?? 173.32.178.19 (talk) 09:24, 23 April 2011 (UTC)

World War I and the American Public[edit]

The American public's feelings towards World War I in this article seem heavily focused on the work of Lewis Einstein and suggests far more support for the Allies than can realistically be assumed. It ignores the heavy German cultural heritage present in America up until the 1920s and, because the source is from 1918, overlooks the fact that American intervention in WWI was disfavored by a significant amount of the public. America's entry into World War I is probably the most unpopular entry into war in the history of the country. Either this opinion should be verified by a more modern source or edited to reflect a realistic examination of this subject. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 64.28.34.158 (talk) 14:44, 7 August 2014 (UTC)

Pax Cold War[edit]

how does that work? PA is grossly flawed if the Cold War is ignored. And Korean Conflict and Nam weren't cold. 74.60.161.158 (talk) 01:34, 14 August 2014 (UTC)

Pax Romana was not entirely peaceful either (also remember the modern Middle East, where the US themselves have waged war, Africa, Ukraine), and the Cold War was not a war, it was a struggle for leadership in the world. - 91.122.7.216 (talk) 01:35, 1 February 2015 (UTC)
