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 reign its ally in.
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s recent warmongering rhetoric is nothing new. The country takes such action every five years or so when a new South Korean president is elected.
But this is the first time for the young leader, believed to be in his mid- to late 20s.
“China does hold the key to this problem.” McCain asserted.
Typically, the U.S. demands that North Korea abandon its nuclear program in exchange for aid. But they won’t ever keep such a promise, because that would make the otherwise poor country “totally irrelevant,” according to McCain.
