Sen. John McCain, appearing Friday on NBC’s “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno,” attacked the United Kingdom for deciding against a coordinated attack on Syria.

Mr. Leno asked Mr. McCain why the United Nations doesn’t support an attack on Syria.

“The U.N. has turned into an organization that, in my estimation, in many ways is a waste of taxpayers’ dollars,” Mr. McCain, Arizona Republican, responded. “Right now, the U.N. is in there ascertaining whether this was a chemical attack. And I think it’s fairly obvious, since you see these bodies stacked up with not a a mark on them, and the head of the United Nations has said, ‘But we won’t apportion blame.’ What? You’re not going to say who is responsible for it? That’s your tax dollars at work.”

“They want to be neutral about everything,” he added. “And I feel badly about the British. They’re our dear friends, but they’re no longer a world power. It’s just a fact of life.”
