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.

John! just STFU!
This is what happened in Superman 4.
figures, since the election’s McCain’s been good on everything EXCEPT defense
before the election, Obama was supposedly intellectually superior to McCain at everything EXCEPT defense
Oy veys mir.
Looks like the predicitions during the campaign have come true; no matter who won the democrats still win. McCain, please just cross over the isle and get it over with.
Damn these two idiots and their handlers......
Amen to that. He was, is and is sure to continue as a RINO.
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.
You gotta be fraking kidding me.....the time for storming the bastille is long past due.
McNuts and his little girl, Missed McNuts just can’t keep their mouths shut. McNuts is a disgrace to the Republicn party, conservatives and me! STFU!!!!
They’re all fools! :(
So what’s this crap about Bob Basso “summoned” to the WH?????
Maybe McCain’t can issue a joint “unringing the bell” decree with a teleprompter.
McCain has turned out to be a disgrace to this country. Please retire already.
that didn’t end so well for the people
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.
McInsane - a closet Democrat. Like much of the GOP.
He speaks of the "ambitious goal" of a nuclear weapons free world, but then directly addresses the real problem - tyrannical regimes with nuclear weapons.
"Concerning President Obama's commitment to the removal of nuclear weapons from the Earth, I certainly support that ambitious goal. We have two countries in the world that could destabilise both parts of the world -- the Iranians and the North Koreans. They both are on the path to acquiring nuclear weapons and the missiles to deliver them...
the North Korean launch was a direct violation of the UN Security Council resolutions and against the norms of decent behaviour as a citizen of the world...
Iranians risk a destabilisation of the entire Middle East as they continue on their path to acquire nuclear weapons."
Of course, I could be wrong, but in this case, I read McCain's "agreement" as something much more dismissive of the silly idea.
It’s not a secret around here that McCain is another poster boy for Testosterone Replacement Therapy.
The GOP has so many of them, I dont know why Michael Steele doesn’t make a deal with the drug companies already.
And this is the guy she busted her ass for during the campaign and what did she get for it, non stop media attacks and no support from her own running mate. The only reason why I wanted McCain to win was so that Sarah could be in the White House. McCain is the Republican version of Obama
Anybody remember what a Clymer is? I think these two both fit the description.
Just earlier this week I told my husband that as bad as McCain would have been, at least he wouldn’t try to disarm us. Wow, guess I was wrong.
This is why the last election cycle ended the minute McCain won the primary. Not much difference between these two.
Was McPAIN on ZERO’S Payroll during the Campaign as well?
I wish McCain would put down the pooper scooper and quit following Obama (his seeming lord and master) around savoring every emission.
Can anyone tell me what the point of voting for this guy was, if he’s going to agree with Obama on every issue?
Anymore, please dont call McPAIN a RINO, thats a desecration of the Term! McPAIN is either a DEMORAT or he is totally INSANE NOW or McPAIN IS BOTH!
Serious health problems - probably crazy from brain cancer.
How pathetic to behold John McCain, desperate to stay relevant, as he slowly begins to realize his political career is over.
Foolishness is genetic in the McCain family.
A pair of morons.
May I be first to call them the right and left buttocks.
Nuclear weapons have saved more people’s lives than they have ever killed.
He sure deserved to lose.
Juan is on an Asian tour, seems about three fourths of the congress has went on an expense paid trip to some where since the first of the year...not to mention zeros 8 day blame America tour...
Thank you for posting this. I don’t like John at all and frankly, I would just slam him for the one-sentence statement. You shed light on more of what was actually said, and I agree, he may have been making nice with 0 while pointing out the elephant in the living room.
Still, I wish he’d stop making nice. Be a Republican or just switch sides already. Or.... just leave. Yeah, leave...
I’d like to say it’s unbelievable, but...
I’m beginning to think a winning strategy for next elections, will be for Republicans to begin hoping Juan McCain will fail.
I detest that man.
More so, every time he opens his stoopid mouth.
Good Lord, will the good people of Arizona please rid us of this cancer?
I am going to contribute to anyone at all who seriously opposes him.
RINO is as RINO does.
Will somebody please cement this meathead’s mouth shut!
Maybe we can “import” one of those little gag characters that throws up green gook. I think I’ve heard everything now!! As bad as Obama is...I am THRILLED I did NOT vote for McCain...can you imagine a (R) in office doing the EXACT SAME CRAP???? aggghhh
Comrade 0bama can almost be excused for his a.) naive or b.) treasonous plans to dismantle America’s nuclear arsenal with all that prattle about a ‘nuclear free world’.
John McRino attended the damn National War College, and is well versed in military strategy and ought to understand WHY America needed nuclear weapons in the post World War II world, and why we need them today.
The silly sonuvabitch has gone senile, there is no other explanation.
There is another explanation: McCain is just a traitor and a poser.
Of course, being senile would explain this:
McCain is a putz.
