John McCain: North Korea ‘the Most Urgent Threat that We’re Facing Right Now’

‘China could shut down north Korea tomorrow and we should engage some of our relationship with China based on them bringing North Korea under control’

EXCERPT:

O’DONNELL: “How urgent is the North Korean threat?”
McCAIN: “I think it’s the most urgent threat that we’re facing right now because if you have this rotund ruler whose behavior is obviously not rational with a missile, with a nuclear weapon on it that can reach the United States of America, that’s just not a risk that we can take. We have to prepare for certain eventualities. But frankly, the key to this is China. China could shut down North Korea tomorrow and we should gage some of our relationship with China based on them bringing North Korea under control.”
