More than once wars have been started by accident, and Sen. John McCain, predicted that a conflict between the Koreas would be a “catastrophe of enormous proportions.”

Warning on “Face the Nation” that “North Korea could set Seoul on fire,” the Arizona Republican said that China is failing to rein its ally in. …

McCain loves indiscriminate war in the middle east.
In the far east, not so much.

Probably having flashbacks to the late 60’s, Early 70’s.
Different cause than most, but just as debilitating.

He’s 100% correct though. We’re not able to win another war while postmodernism prevails.

There are so many in DC living in a dreamworld already. It’s so bad that when reality hits, they are already down and yet are still surprised by what reality hits them with.

Itbegs thee question why the United States has to be concerned about “accidentally” provoking a war wile no other nation is held responsible for avoiding the provoking of the United States into defending itself or an ally after an attack.

‘Catastrophe of Enormous Proportions’

For some reason I think McCain has taken to quoting Han from Enter the Dragon. So did Bob Dole, now that I think about it.

“Gentlemen, welcome. You honor our island. I look forward to a tournament of truly epic proportions. We are unique, gentlemen, in that we create ourselves... through long years of rigorous training, sacrifice, denial, pain. We forge our bodies in the fire of our will. But tonight, let us celebrate. Gentlemen, you have our gratitude.”

Juan is right.

War is never to be sought.

It must be won completely when presented.

Yes it would be awful.

Why go to war with N. Korea over a little thing like a Nuclear Missile fired at us. We can absorb a couple with no problem. Better losing a couple of cities than fighting with N. Korea.

Yes. Folks sarcasm.

Dear Juan. We will not go to war with N’ Korea until after they have fired a Nuke, Not with Obama in charge, and perhaps not even if that nuke actually hits here.

China is failing to rein its ally in.

Not so sure how much of an "ally" China is anymore, China as well as Russia are condemning the actions of the little p***k dictator.

“Anything incorrect in what he says here?”

No, it’s true that an attack by the norks would inflict severe damage on Seoul, BUT it was idiotic for him to provide them with tomorrow morning’s news soundbite.

They WILL use his statement to rally their people against the south...guaranteed.

I wish this worthless senile old POS would just STFU and go away.

You're 100% correct too, but the high-testosterone, low-experience crowd here will disagree. I was present for Korea, Round I, and that was the beginning of postmodernism welded to our foreign policy. When Truman refused to let MacArthur cross the Yalu and kick China in the scrotum, America officially became the impotent "paper tiger" China and the rest of the world laughs at to this day. We've become the official international Meals on Wheels while our crucial national interests and territory are being challenged everywhere around the globe.

Please go back to your Arizona ranch and STFU. Please.

Lets surrender now! We can’t win! If we pay them, maybe they will not hurt us! Heck, even France has bigger stones than this. I guess the North Vietnamese kicked all the stones out of John.

Truman, the only president to drop a nuclear weapon in war, wouldn't drop one on Korea and you think this President will?

Be fair, Japan had no other Allies when the bombs were dropped.

Also the nuclear fallout would impact other countries, like South Korea and China.

You'd have to drop a lot of bombs for problems like that. There have been MANY open air tests on U.S. soil. We're not dropping one on North Korea.
