I think spartans are the most warlike people.trained from childhood to be tough fighting machines,they were ceartainly the most warlike people.

I think Germans were(after many defeats they seem to have understood the value of peace) the more warlik people.Look at the history of Germany(from about 1600 on) and I doubt you'd find more that let's say 50 years of continuous peace.

I agree on the Spartans. Truly born to fight. It was forseen to be warlike while the other cultures mentioned above either fought for survivalist causes or due to social issues alone. 

There is nothing in the world more helpless and irresponsible than a man in the depths of an ether binge...

Aztec society seems to be the most geared up for war, the whole religeon, culture and economy was based upon it.

I also read a list of every war fought in history once, the nation that had fought the most wars was England.

Italy came a close second.

I don't know much about the aztecs, but of those i do know, I would feel the Spartans were the most "warlike". Trained and indoctrinated from birth, not too many other cultures who could say the same

These are the two I can't decide:

Spartans: Very atheletic citizens, strongest military in Greece.

Mongols: Every man was a warrior, each had six war horses.

Slavs are pretty similiar to the Celts (at least from what I know of modern Celts and fellow Russians).  Hard choice. I didn't vote for anyone.

Iron age Europeans were farmers not warriors.

My money's on Canadians too as a good future bet....

Aztecs for sure.  They fought for sacrifice so that sun would rise tomorrow.  Very warlike, and feared and hated by their neighbors.  So when Spaniards arrived, they joined against Aztecs.

Grrr..

The Spartans actually tried to avoid war.One of the reasons for King Lionidus'(I think that is how you spell it)gathering of only 300 troops for the battle of Thermopylae against Xerxes in 480 BC was because he did not want to waste his other troops.That is not warlike.Sure they were bred for war,but they barely fought.What they did was conquer smaller city states in Greece,until Athens asked for help from Sparta against the invading Persian Army led by Darius then Xerxes.The most warlike people,in my opinion,are the Chinese.Countless civil wars for unification,I mean heads literally rolled.

Technically, we are still in the middle of one since ROC on Taiwan and Mainland China have never signed a peace treaty.

To a certain extend, it's like history repeating itself.

When the Manchu took over the Chinese mainland in 1644, a young Han Chinese general of the Ming dynasty drove out the Dutch on Taiwan and retreated to that Island to start a long campiagn against the Manchu on the Mainland in hope of retaking the Mainland. The situation lasted for few decades when his grandson finally surrendered to the Qing.
