America Dominant Again (in Arms Sales)
Andy Kroll | tomdispatch.com | 2021-05-25
When it comes to trade in the tools of death and destruction, no one tops the United States of America. In April of this year, the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) published its annual analysis of trends in global arms sales and the winner — as always — was the U.S. of A.

Each side tends to see the worst motivation and the greatest capabilities in assessing its adversaries in order to justify its own actions.
