McCain 'Disturbed' by Obama's View of American Power

clipped from newsmax.com

Sen. John McCain tells Newsmax that he was “very disturbed” by President Barack Obama’s statement that America remains a dominant military superpower “whether we like it or not.”

At the close of the two-day nuclear weapons summit in Washington, D.C., on April 13, Obama said that the United States must do its best to resolve conflicts around the world before they grow too serious.

"It is a vital national security interest of the United States to reduce these conflicts because whether we like it or not, we remain a dominant military superpower, and when conflicts break out, one way or another we get pulled into them."

McCain tells Newsmax.TV: “I was very disturbed by the president’s statement that the United States remains the world’s premier superpower, military power, ‘whether we like it or not.’

Asked if he has any idea why the president appears apologetic about America’s role in the world, the Arizona Republican says simply: “No, I don’t.”
