calm from the u.s., russia and china, have kept things from escalating so far. jim miklaszewski is live from the pentagon. what is the latest? >> the most visual reaction and quite frankly military involvement is the president's decision to deploy "the george washington" aircraft battle carrier not from in the sea from where the attack occurred earlier this week to conduct joint military exercises with south korea. the planning for this operation had gun shortly after the north korea sank that south korean patrol boat killing 46 south korean sailors in march of this year. the timing cannot be underestimated. it is clearly sabre rattling, a show of force, that the united states remains firmly committed to the defense of south korea. once you get beyond that, the military options, quite frankly, for the u.s. an even south korea, are almost limited if not zero, andrea. >> jim miklaszewski at the p pentagon, thanks for all that. now, we go to victor. what are the u.s. options? >> i think as jim said, the military options are quite limited. if there were no other considerations, the mil

describe as revisionist powers between china and russia. it's notable that the president will refer to china specifically as one of the sort of strategic competitors here where president obama on a variety of issues including iran among them, climate change, had viewed -- president xi had viewed the chinese as partners. beyond that the president is going to emphasize the value of economic security. the economic security is central to national security so you've seen some of those headlines there. climate change obviously another issue he'll be focused on a little later. obama, the past administration, viewed that as a threat to national security, a threat frankly to the world's security. this president is going to view it in a different framework in the way it relates to energy dominance for the united states. those are some of the keys we'll be looking at, andrea, when we hear from the president shortly. >> nick burns, if we're talking about economic security and pushing back against china and china's dominance, one wonders why then the president withdrew from tpp and gave china a cle

russia. let me share with you from the president about china in the last 24 hours. where he said i'm very disappointed in china, our foolish past leaders have allowed them to take hundreds of millions of dollars in trade, yet they do nothing with north korea. we will no longer allow this to continue, china could easily solve this problem, this is such a slam at president xi who was an honored guest at mar-a-lago at one time. is that the way to get chesapeachina to help with north korea? >> that meeting at mar-a-lago, to try to get his support, and the president has not acted to cut off imports to north korea. that's the economic lever that could move them to not abandon, but at least freeze their nuclear program. so i think the president's right to call out the chinese. but the issue that we have to do is come up with a comprehensive strategy, and that would involve sanctions against u.s. companies that are doing business with the north koreans, we also have to engage all the regional powers, we have to do it with a consistent strategy, and we also have to recognize that one of t

world represented on that council. that russia and china by their veto made it impossible for the council to support an arab league plan for a peaceful democratic transition. that resolution that was vetoed was not meaningless and watered down, it was significant. if that it would have lined up the entire international community behind a process where both sides had to come together and on a swift timetable, negotiate a transition to a democratic regime. the fact that russia and china chose to line themselves up with a dictator that is on his last legs rather than with the people of syria and the people of middle east and the principaled views of the rest of the international community was indeed disgusting and shameful and i think it's a decision that they will come to regret when there's that democratic syria that will not forget this action. >> one of the concerns that people are expressing is, while russia said, the foreign minister said, that the resolution could lead to civil war, now others are saying the failure of the u.n. to act can lead to civil war and this will fuel b
