Republican Senator John McCain spoke out Sunday against Iran at Yeshiva University's annual Hanukkah dinner.

The Arizona Senator was presented with an honorary doctorate by the president of the university.

During his address, McCain called Iran "the chief state sponsor of international terrorism."

"There's only one thing worse that a military solution, and that, my friends, is a nuclear-armed Iran," McCain said. "The regime must understand that they cannot win a showdown with the world, and as Americans we also need to reassure the millions of Iranians who aspire to self determination that we support their longing for freedom and democracy."

McCain also defended the war in Iraq, saying that Iraqi security forces aren't capable of operating on their own.

McCain is considered a frontrunner for the GOP nomination for president in 2008.
