McCain for a World Free of Nuclear Weapons?

Senate Republican, John McCain, embraces Obama’s vision, which he claims was actually Reagan’s vision, of a world free of nuclear weapons in a Senate floor speech June 3. He quoted President Ronald Reagan saying, “The only value in possessing nuclear weapons is to make sure they can't be used ever. I know I speak for people everywhere when I say our dream is to see the day when nuclear weapons will be banished from the face of the Earth.” Senator McCain said “that is my dream too.” Although the Senator promoted “robust missile defenses,” he said we need to move “as rapidly as possible, to a significantly smaller force.” See the full text of speech here.
