What nation...ever...has not been founded on war?The US was essentially founded on war and conflict and has been for 222 years.
But Claudius points that we often don't enforce law--just our own interests. Korea was law enforcement, but Viet Nam? The first Iraq war was law enforcement, but not the second.Why would we ever in a million years think we suddenly would be different? In the US peace is done via force. Thats why we think we are peaceful, we are the worlds law enforcement.
