"Imagine a country where violence against women is so epidemic it is their leading cause of injury. . . Imagine a country whose military budget tops average Cold War levels although the break up of the Soviet Union produced friends, not foes. This nation spends almost as much on the military as the rest of the world combined and leads the world in arms exports. . . It’s the United States." (Z Magazine, June 2007; photo PBS)
