T minus two days and if reports are right North Korea will test launch a missile on Wednesday many fear that -- could lead to real trouble.
Republican senator -- presidential candidate John McCain -- -- right now senator what's your biggest worry for for Wednesday.
Well my biggest worry.
Until North Korea changes -- there behavior pattern is -- accidental.
Outbreak of conflict on the Korean Peninsula.
-- is about twenty miles from DMC.
I didn't see there's artillery in caves.
That the north Koreans have which have the capability of striking so there's millions.
-- people that live there.
And to somehow think that these people -- person or persons.
Think like we do and are gonna behave like we do I think he is.
Is something that we can't rely on so I'm worried about that as -- -- missile launchers concerns.
I think it's just another provocative step that's being taken.
I do believe we can.
Take out that missile if we.
That we have the capability to do so and that's very.
Difficult decision to make but could I just mention one other aspect of this -- we go through this cycle.
And then trying to buy them off -- Boy -- or food or money you're lifting sanctions we've been through that cycle in both Republican and Democrat administrations.
And based somehow on the premise.
That North Korea would be willing to give up its nuclear capabilities they did that they would be totally irrelevant.
And by the way don't think the Iranians aren't paying careful attention us as to how we handle this crisis and finally.
The only country in the world that can prevent this -- operational behavior from continuing.
-- China and China is not behaving.
As the world's superpower.
One of the world superpowers.
As it should and the Chinese are directly responsible for not reigning in North Korea they could bring down there.
In a matter of days.
They are not doing anything they're just sitting by.
Apparently in not taking action to rein them in meanwhile China continues or cyber attacks.
And continues to ratchet up tensions over the South China -- Do you think that our economic position the fact that we really need the Chinese they still buy a lot of our dad announces.
Is is is giving -- some hesitancy here and that's why we.
The war in China's.
Don't know the reasons four and I know how important our relationship is I know how important -- is.
But it isn't just on this issue that the Chinese are not behaving as a responsible superpower.
And -- I've been around long enough -- was a great -- of the China China when we.
Declared normalization of relations I look back on that time.
We had great expectations.
That China would evolve into more democratic country there -- gonna allow.
Village elections -- centrist sector none of that has really happened and China is edition just on career.
It's cyber its confrontation over the South China Sea and its other activities that they've engaged in which frankly are not in keeping.
With the role that we expect China playing in the world so what do we do.
I think first of all bring pressure to bear in them in the number of ways.
As far as public opinion is concerned.
But also recognized we -- We're going to have trouble with China.
There's a master -- Wednesday we'll see how much of one senator it's always a pleasure -- sir thank you.
