The McCain Update - May 30, 2008

It has been 873 days since Senator Obama's one and only visit to Iraq. Yet, despite zero first hand knowledge of conditions on the ground since the change in strategy, Senator Obama advocates withdrawal of U.S. troops. While he is happy to hold unconditional presidential meetings with the world's worst dictators, he has yet to meet with General Petraeus about the improving conditions in Iraq.

Before Senator Obama decides to override the recommendations of our commanders in the field and surrender the flight, he should have the judgment to see for himself first-hand the conditions on the ground.

Reducing Nuclear Threats

John McCain believes that we can build a safer world, one with fewer nuclear weapons and in which proliferation, instability and nuclear terrorism are far less likely. To achieve this, John McCain outlined a series of initiatives that will enhance nuclear security and prevent proliferation. He spoke about his initiatives at the University of Denver in Colorado on Tuesday.

The global spread of nuclear weapons demands immediate action. As president, John McCain will establish a long-term commitment to a world free of nuclear weapons.

At the same time, the U.S. must continue to deploy a safe and reliable nuclear deterrent, robust missile defense and superior conventional forces. He supports further strategic arms reductions and will seek to reduce the size of our nuclear arsenal to the lowest number possible, consistent with our security requirements and global commitments.

John McCain will work to strengthen existing international treaties and institutions to combat proliferation and develop new ones where necessary. To prevent countries from using civilian nuclear programs as a cover for the development of weapons, he will limit the further spread of enrichment and reprocessing.

Like generations of Americans before them, these are men and women who love this country so much that they are willing to sacrifice their lives in its service.
