VOICE OVER SCRIPT:

THERE WAS A SWIFT REACTION IN WASHINGTON TO NORTH KOREA'S NUCLEAR THREATS.

(SOT: Jay Carney, White House Spokesman)

"I can tell you that the United States is fully capable of defending against any North Korean ballistic missile attack."

ON CAPITOL HILL, IT WAS CALLED ABSURD.

(SOT: Senator Robert Menendez, Chairman, Senate Foreign Relations Committee)

"I don't think that the regime in Pyongyang wants to commit suicide, but that as they must surely know, that would be the result of any attack on the United States."

EVEN AS THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION WEIGHED THE PROVOCATION, IT WAS NOT TOTALLY UNEXPECTED.

(SOT: Victoria Nuland, State Department spokeswoman)

"One has to take what any government says seriously // but I would also say that this kind of extreme rhetoric has not been unusual for this regime, unfortunately."

NORTH KOREA ALSO THREATENED TO SCRAP THE CEASE-FIRE THAT ENDED THE KOREAN WAR IN THE FACE OF TOUGH NEW UNITED NATIONS SANCTIONS.

(SOT: Susan Rice, US ambassador to the UN)

"Taken together, these sanctions will bite and bite hard. They increase North Korea's isolation and raise the cost to North Korea's leaders of defying the international community."

IT WAS AN UNANIMOUS VOTE BY THE UN'S SECURITY COUNCIL AND HAD THE CRUCIAL BACKING OF NORTH KOREA'S MAIN SUPPORTER, CHINA.

(SOT: Li Bao Dong, Chinese ambassador to the UN)

"The top priority now is to defuse the tension, bring down heat, focus on diplomatic track."

THE NEW SANCTIONS AGAINST PYONGYANG ARE AIMED AT HALTING IT'S NUCLEAR AND MISSILE PROGRAMS.

(SOT: Joseph Cirincione, Ploughshares Fund President)

"Sanctions definitely work. They put pressure on the regime, that's why they're screaming so loud. These will bite. But, they are never enough."

CALLING RECENT US POLICY TOWARDS NORTH KOREA A FAILURE, CIRINCIONE SAYS SANCTIONS MUST BE COMBINED WITH DIALOGUE IF THEY ARE TO HAVE ANY CHANCE OF SUCCESS.
