TOKYO (AFP) — US Senator John McCain Friday backed a call by President Barack Obama, his former rival for the White House, for a planet free of nuclear weapons and this should start with North Korea and Iran.

The Republican senator from Arizona was speaking in Japan on the last leg of an Asia tour, after Tokyo was angered by Pyongyang firing a rocket over its territory Sunday.

"Concerning President Obama's commitment to the removal of nuclear weapons from the Earth, I certainly support that ambitious goal," McCain told a Tokyo press conference.

I'll bet Sarah Palin is not naive enough to think Russia, China, North Korea, and Iran are going to give up their nukes.

With nukes out of the way, does this mean we can finally get on with World War III? After all, it’s pretty annoying how these devices have deterred such an occurrence.

Look, I am with you on McLame making a fool of himself most of the time.

But this is clearly a "journalist" making a mountain out of a molehill. McCain backs the goal, but certainly he didn't endorse Hussein's methods.

This appears to be a non-story, intended to rile up people into thinking Hussein's actions are endorsed by McLame. In this instance, I doubt it.

Maybe McCain’t can issue a joint “unringing the bell” decree with a teleprompter.

I would hesitate to label either of them intellectually superior at anything but b.s.. Nuclear disarmament is a lofty idea that sounds good and would be nice if it weren’t for that pesky problem of trust. And anyone that thinks you can trust rogue dictators is a moron that shouldn’t be allowed in a decision making position. Think of it like putting up a huge billboard on your front lawn announcing that you have no weapons because you are enforcing a strict violence free zone on your property. Go ahead. Give it a try for a year or two and then report back.
