McCain backs Obama's call to end nuclear weapons
AFP ^ | 2009-04-10

Posted on 04/10/2009 1:10:48 PM PDT by rabscuttle385

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.

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.

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.

I'm not usually one to defend that hump McCain, but I think he may have been "agreeing" with Obama facetiously.

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.

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

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?

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...

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.
