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.

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...

The links for this article don't work. All I get is a pic of McCain. Where did you find the article?

Thanks
