south korea, to japan, as the president says we have your back. you know, to china, or to north korea it says, hey, if you -- if you go further, we are prepared to respond. we will protect our friends in the region. and to china, another variable in this, they're saying we know you don't have the same relationship with the new leader that you had with his father, but you've got to do what you can to rein this kid in. >> so, could china, though, convince north korea to shut all this bluster down? i mean, would that relationship be able to do that? >> no. north korea, you know, has become, you know, much more bellicose in recent years to the frustration of china. china has some leverage, particularly on the economic side. but ultimately, because china does not want to see an implosion of north korea, it has some influence but we shouldn't overstate it. >> all right. so based on that variable would the u.s., or what would it take for this escalation to reach a point where preemptive action by the u.s. is necessary? >> well, if it's just words, we'll work through this. if it's actions, th
