No we're way worse than the Americans; that's why we're way nicer. I saw this US Army training film about how to behave in England and it said something like "The English are the most reasonable people in the world, up to a point." Beyond that point things rapidly get medieval.
With the English there seems to be a disbelief that someone would be so stupid as to provoke violence so the reaction is one of "There must be a rational explanation for this apparent insanity" followed by "No he actually is a *****, better fetch my Bren gun."

I think its like a sleeping volcano or what happens when people get over cooked. todays world is just that, the worlds people.
And your reason 'Why' doesn't make sense!
No, but it does make sense now.
I still don't think Americans are more violent than other people.
people are violent.....all of humanity. The only difference is the social structures thatt ell people what to do with their violent impulses.
I have no idea about your specific reference...I am talking about the fact that one's nationality doesn't make them violent.
