In a speech today in Denver where he talked about his plan to reduce the US’ nuclear arsenal, John McCain was confronted by anti-war protestors. Here is how he responded:

In his speech, McCain referenced a quote from President Reagan on nukes:
“A quarter of a century ago, President Ronald Reagan declared, “Our dream is to see the day when nuclear weapons will be banished from the face of the Earth,’ ” Mr. McCain said. “That is my dream, too.” He added: “It is time for the United States to show the kind of leadership the world expects from us, in the tradition of American presidents who worked to reduce the nuclear threat to mankind.”
Here’s a pretty informative piece to read for anyone who, like me, didn’t realize how strongly Reagan opposed nuclear weapons.
