Senator McCain:

I respectfully request that you sit down and be quiet.

(1) Somebody else is President,
(2) I'm tired of policing the world, and
(3) North Korea has a right to ship anything it wants to.

If that fact doesn't sit well with the UN, let the UN — without American support — take whatever action it deems appropriate.

If, however, North Korea fires a missile at the US, we should bomb that nation off the face of the earth. See, that's not complicated.

If NK sells the technology to non-state actors, it gets far more complicated. NK sold a nuclear facility to Syria that the Israelis blew up. They have sold long range missiles to Iran. If the US continues to let NK and Iran thumb their noses at us and our allies, eventually countries like Japan and Saudi Arabia will acquire nuclear weapons rather than depend on the US security umbrella.

I agree with McCain on this one.

Nothing you said made any sense.

So Senators are supposed to be quiet while "someone else is President". What's that all about?

You are "tired of policing the world"? We haven't been policing the world or we wouldn't be worrying about Iran and NK.

NK does not have the right to ship anything it wants if it threatens the security of the world. Just like you don't the right to do anything you want or transport anything you want if it threatens others.
