Word Challenge: pax vera

When I saw the words for today's challenge - transmitto (transmittere) - verus, vera, verum - arma (armorum) - -ve (conj.) - a (prep. + abl.) - the word arma immediately conjured up its opposite, pax. Then, the -ve prompted me to use the parallel sive...sive... construction, based on the two sides of an armed conflict.

So... here's what I came up with:
Sive a nos in hostes arma transmittantur, sive ab eis in nos, ubi in toto hoc mundo pax vera invenietur?
