Carter: U.S. Most Warlike Country on Earth

Former President Jimmy Carter:  "We are the most warlike country on earth, we are a laggard in addressing the problem of global warming for instance, and we are now violating about ten of the thirty paragraphs in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. This is something we should look upon as opportunities or duties for the future."

Generally good words from Carter but one key point he is wrong about - you can't have the biggest military in the world and at the same time be the "champion of peace".  Those two things don't fit together.
