states. a device similar to one kim jong-un showed off more than a year ago. that photo-op is now considered a reality and it drew a stark warning from president trump. >> north korea best not make any more threats to the united states. they will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen. >> reporter: last month they launched two missiles high into space which had they been fired on a lower trajectory would have had the range to reach parts of the u.s. but government officials and outside experts say north korea has yet to demonstrate two key technologies needed for a reliable nuclear weapon. a nose cone that can shield the nuclear warhead from the extreme heat and buffer feting of re-entering the atmosphere and a guidance system to steer it accurately toward its target. earlier this summer the defense intelligence agency estimated
7:06 am
north korea would solve those problems and have a reliable weapon as early as next year, a full two years earlier than previously forecast. >> we are on a very dangerous course and the two sides need to get onto the off-ramp. >> reporter: darryl kimball is director of the airports association. >> what north korea is concerned about are american military threats. they're only going to strike out if they feel threatened. >> reporter: the crisis over north korea's nuclear weapons perhaps has been building slowly for years dating back to the clinton administration. it now appears that one way or the other it will come to a head during the trump administration. margaret. >> david, thank you. several east asian countries are on high alert after north korea's newest threat. japan and south korea say they will reshape their militaries in response. there are calls for more powerful weapons to defend themselves. but the most important response will come from china, north korea's main patron.
7:07 am
ben tracy is in beijing where the government has a lot at stake. ben, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. we actually just received this response from the chinese government and in it they say the situation on the korean peninsula is highly sensitive. we hope the parties will be cautious with words and behavior and stop provoking each other and avoid escalation. now, the chinese government fears this war of words could lead to a regional arms race and that already appears to be happening. south korean president moon jae-in is calling for a complete overhaul of south korea's military in the face of north korea's rapidly evolving nuclear capabilities. in japan some lawmakers are pushing for new weapons that could launch a preemptive strike. now, keep in mind china just agreed this past weekend to go along with the u.n. sanctions on kim jong-un's regime. which will largely be up to china to enforce. having the president of the united states throw more fuel on this fire may make china think twice about how far down the road it wants to go in
7:08 am
supporting u.s. actions on north korea. now, next week north korea celebrates its liberation day and some analysts have said that might be an opportunity for kim jong-un to launch yet another missile or conduct his country's sixth underground nuclear test. vlad. >> ben tracy in beijing, thank you. the president tweeted this morning my first order as president was to renovate and modernize our nuclear arsenal. it is now far stronger and more powerful than ever before. hopefully we will never have to use this power but there will never be a time that we are not the most powerful nation in the world. major garrett is near the trump national golf club where the president spoke out. major, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. president trump did order a strategic review of u.s. nuclear policy but it was president obama over many years who spent billions of dollars modernizing the u.s. nuclear arsenal. the u.s. nuclear capability has no equal but cold war rhetoric aside, the trump administration has not articulated the strategy to stop north korea or defuse
7:09 am
the crisis. when asked if president trump was moving toward war, counselor kellyanne conway couldn't or wouldn't say. >> i think the president's comments were very strong and obvious. >> reporter: the president prides himself on not drawing red lines or telegraphing military intentions. his speech sounded like harry truman's. >> if they don't accept our terps they will expect a rain of ruin from the air the like of which has never been seen on earth. >> reporter: they voted unanimously to impose new sanctions on north korea in response to continued ballistic missile tests about the same time national security adviser h.r. mcmaster said military action is a real option. >> preparing plans for a preventive war. if they had nuclear weapons it's intolerable from the president's
7:10 am
per tech tiff. >> reporter: america's appetite for conflict appears limited. only 29% favor military action in a cbs news poll. and 61% are uneasy about the president's ability to solve the crisis. some democrats took pause. senator ben cardin of maryland said trump's comments once again show that he lacks the temperament and senator dianne feinstein said trump was bombastic and is not helping the situation. but republican congressman peter king said trump's comments send a very strong deterrent signal to north korea. to me there's more of a chance of war if the u.s. does not stand strong. on phoenix radio republican senator john mccain was critical of mr. trump. >> the great leaders that i have seen, they don't threaten unless they are ready to act. and i'm not sure that president trump is ready to act. >> reporter: the president confronts the situation on the korean peninsula without a full complement of asia experts. he has not nominated an
7:11 am
ambassador to south korea and other top asia experts within the state department, well, those positions remain vak apartment. roughly 60% of undersecretary and assistant secretary positions have either been nominated, confirmed or are being reviewed for nominations. >> thanks, major. republican senator lindsey graham is on the armed services cmmittee. he served 33 years in the air force, air force reserve and air national guard with us from clemson, south carolina. senator, good morning. >> good morning. >> you heard what your good friend senator mccain said that great leaders do not threaten unless they are prepared to act. do you believe the united states is prepared to act? >> oh, absolutely. there are two scenarios where we would go to war with north korea. if they attack guam or some other american interest or our allies or if they try to keep developing an icbm with a nuclear weapon on top to hit the homeland, we would act. president trump has basically drawn a red line saying that he'll never allow north korea to
7:12 am
have an icbm missile that can hit america with a nuclear weapon on top. he's not going to let that happen. he's not going to contain the threat. he's going to stop the threat. >> well, when you say that or when president trump says that there is at issue the question of how many people might die from a retaliation on south korea. >> yeah, general mattis described it very well. it would be a horrific war, unfortunately. we're headed that way unless north korea stops. put yourself in president trump's shoes for a moment. where does your allegiance lie? isn't your primary purpose as president of the united states to protect the american homeland from a nuclear weapon attack by a guy like kim jong-un. my belief is that we're headed that way unless the world can stop north korea. he's going to pick homeland defense over regional stability and he has to. for 30 years this has failed. this is not a language problem. this is a north korean regime trying to get the capability to strike america, the halt malt
7:13 am
insurance policy for regime survivability and no president should allow this to happen. we failed for 30 years. it's time to try something new. >> senator, secretary of state rex tillerson just landed in guam speaking to reporters there. he said our telephone lines remain open. he says this is not an escalation. he said president trump was simply trying to speak in language that kim jong-un would understand in terms of that rhetor rhetoric. does it seem to you like there's diplomatic progress? >> well, we had sanctions passed by the u.n. that were very tough. nikki haley did a great job. secretary tillerson is telling north korea they will not be a war to change a regime. there will not be a war to reunify the korean peninsula. >> something that does contradict what the cia director mike pompeo said when he was out at aspen when he said regime change is a goal. >> i don't think it's the goal of the american president to change the regime. it's the goal of the american president to stop north korea from having an icbm that can hit
7:14 am
america with a nuclear weapon on top. he would go to war to prevent that. that's where war would be likely to occur if they continue to threaten the homeland. i hope diplomacy will work. sanctions haven't worked before. maybe they'll work thought but china should have more than -- we got two bad options, that is to let them get a missile to hit america or go to war to stop them. china should have two bad options. deal with a nutjob in your backyard or realize that there will be a war in your backyard. >> do you think this was a message to china as well as north korea. >> yes, and the time for talking is running out. i want to know what south korea and japan think about the miniaturizing of the weapon. i don't want to trust one intel report we've learned from iraq you need to be cautious but i do believe president trump will not allow kim jong-un to hit us with a nuclear weapon. it's a matter of time till that capability exists so i hope we can do this diplomacy or war
7:15 am
will be terrible. if there is a war it will be in the rooenl, not in america. >> there are already intelligence reports that say miniature says miniaturization is not the issue but to deal with the -- >> i don't know the exact nature of it and i don't think we have good eyes and ears on how far along they are. i'd like to lear from south korea and japan. their intel services. but it's just a matter of time until they get this capability. when putin says that, you know, he didn't interfere in our election, he's lying. when the ayatollah says he's not trying to build a nuclear bomb, he's lying. when assad said he didn't use chemical weapon, he's lying. this man kim jong-un is not lying. he is saying he's going to build an icbm with a nuclear weapon on top to hit america and i don't want to live for the next 50 years under that threat and he'll have a hydrogen bomb one
7:16 am
day with a bunch of missiles if we don't stop him now. everything before did not work. i don't want him to get stronger over time. >> senator graham, thank you. french security forces reportedly shot and arrested a man suspected of ramming a car into a group of soldiers this morning. the attack on the troops happened outside paris. french officials say the man was intercepted on a highway and shot in order to subdue him. the soldiers are members of france's anti-terror security force. six were hurt. three of them seriously. the music world this morning is remembering the rhinestone cowboy, glen campbell. the legendary guitigi gigi -- g died yesterday. anthony mason interviewed him during his farewell tour. >> reporter: he sold 50 million albums, had more than 20 top 20 hits. the son of a sharecropper he went from picking cotton in the

8:01 am
crisis. >> what the president is doing is sending a strong message to north korea in language that kim jong un would understand. >> it's been building slowly for years but now appears they'll come to a head during the trump administration. >> do you believe the united states is prepared to act. >> president trump is not going to contain the threat. he's going to stop the threat. >> the music world this morning is remembering the rhinestone cowboy glenn pericampbell. he went from picking cotton in the fields of arkansas to becoming one of country music's first cross over stars. >> in other news a report by 13 federal agencies says that climate change is accelerating faster than we originally thought. >> you can read about it in the massive 600 page interagency document which i have right here and which in hindsight i should not have printed out.

>> i'm charlie rose. gayle and nora are off. the united states and north korea are sharply escalating the threats toward each other but the secretary of state says he does not see any imminent danger. >> this morning president trump tweet mid first order as president was to renovate and modernize our nuclear arsenal. it's now far stronger and more powerful than ever before. hopefully we will never have to use this power, but there will never be a time that we are not the most powerful nation in the world. >> north korea said overnight it's examining plans to make a quo quote enveloping fire around guam. the north's newest statement follows a blunt warning from president trump to north korean leader kim jong un. >> he has been very threatening beyond a normal statement and as i said they will be met with
8:03 am
fire, fury and frankly power, the likes of which this world has never seen before. >> secretary of state rex tillerson stopped in guam this morning on his way back from asia and underlined the president's message. >> i think the president, what the president is doing is sending a strong message to north korea in language that kim jong un would understand because he doesn't seem to understand diplomatic language. i think the president just wanted to be clear to the north korean regime that the u.s. unquestionable ability to defend itself, will defend itself and it's alabama lilies and it's im that he deliver that message to avoid any miscalculation on their part. >> tillerson also said, quote, americans should sleep well at night. >> the presidents warning came after a new u.s. intelligence assessment was leaked. it claimed north koreans can build a nuclear war head small
8:04 am
enough to fit on a missile. also says they have enough to build dozens of weapons. they started building missiles that could hit parts of the mainland united states. expertds are not sure if the regime developed a way for them to with stand the heat of reentering the atmosphere or target a warhead accurately. >> his government claimed it could be carried on a missile. north korea carried out it's most recent nuclear test last september. it was estimated to have twice the power of the atomic bomb dropped on hiroshima japan. more than 210,000 people were killed in that attack. it took place 72 years ago this week. >> retired admiral spent four years as president obama's vice chairman of the joint chiefs of staff and also a former commander.
8:05 am
he's with us now from washington. you hear time and again in diplomatic circles that words matter, particularly on issue of this high a consequence. how do you understand the president's tweet this morning. >> well, good morning, margaret and charlie and vlad. i think that first of all i'm encouraged that the president is committed like previous presidents before him to modernizing our nuclear arsenal because it is our ultimate deturrent against any threat including one against north korea. it's been going on for quite sometime and it will continue and i'm encouraged that he's fairly calming tweeting out this morning that we remain committed to that. >> secretary of state rex tillerson seemed to be taking a step back and emphasizing that there say diplomatic way out from this. do you believe that the president is directing his statements at china or at pyongyang right now? where's the pressure point? >> it's hard to tell. i think it was an out burst of
8:06 am
sorts. i would council being circumspect in our rhetoric. we are the great power here. not north korea and it doesn't do good to descend into angry play ground rhetoric. the good news is we do have folks like rex tillerson and jim mattis that are the adults in the room staying calm here and secretary tillerson is pursuing diplomatic solution to this problem as best he can and i would encourage him to continue doing so. >> do you believe the north koreans want to use nuclear weapons against the united states? >> no i don't. this is merely a survival mechanism for them. they are running an impoverished isolated nations. other nations have given up their nuclear weapons what has happened to them and they have decided to rely upon this as their regime survival mechanism not only externally but internally. >> can we live with north korea having nuclear weapons?
8:07 am
>> i wouldn't go so far as saying we can live with them but we need to let them stew in their own juice and leave them alone. they'll never use these weapons nor will they ever give them up as long as we don't provoke them into using them. >> you seem to say we should not get their juices going but we should leave them alone having their nuclear weapons the key is that we maintain the key pillars. maintain missile and national defenses and fort identify thif. and the other half is imposing cost and that's continually reminding north korea if they should be foolish enough to use a nuclear weapon against our allies or us they'll bear a consequence. >> you believe we should have a
8:08 am
nuclear defense system that will work against any attack by north korea? >> we just recently tested for the very first time our national ballistic missile defense system against a true representative intercontinental missile threat like the one north korea is developing and it performed with flying colors. we also have very capable missile defense and the missile system that we installed in south korea and guam and the capable missile that we're co-developing with japan. so we are i believe in very good shape as far as ballistic missile defense systems go. nothing is perfect but they're very good systems. >> you don't think north korea will use their weapons but they won't give them up. one of the concerns i hear from u.s. officials is that they could sell them because they are demonstrating increased capabilities here. isn't proliferation another threat that we haven't heard a strategy to counter yet? >> it is a very big concern and i think that is why the entire
8:09 am
international community needs to make a very strong statement to north korea that not only will you not use these weapons but you will not proliferate them either or there will be serious consequences and the intelligence community is very focused on that problem. not only the development but the potential for proliferation of nuclear capability of any kind. >> do you believe north korea is our biggest national security concern or is it some other country? >> i also worried a lot more about the great powers and in particular russia right now. we have an angry russia expecting to have a very compliant administration and that's blown up in their face with heavy sanctions. vladimir putin faces re-election campaign next spring so i tend to focus my major attention on that particular threat more than north korea although we have to take the north korea threat very seriously to be sure. >> all right. thank you very much. we appreciate it. >> my pleasure. >> more younger and middle aged

and worked as her deputy chief of staff whelp she was secretary of state. he was involved in the secret negotiations that led to the nuclear deal with iran. 's no nhe's now a visiting lectern. good morning. >> thanks for having me. >> you say north korea is a land of lousy options. where are we going and does the president's language help or hinder? >> what we need right now is steady resolveing calm, and absolutely strong and consistent leadership and the problem with what the president said is it puts all the attention on the united states and what the united states is thinking when the attention should be on north korea and producing pressure to produce a dramatic outcome. it doesn't help when our allies conditional tell whether it's president trump or kim jong-un who's the crazier one. >> you have also said the
8:35 am
likelihood of war not north korea but iran. >> from my perspective, one of the things not getting attention is the tension between iran and the middle east. just a day or so you've seen a united states drone come with 100 feet of an iranian fight. that doesn't mean norfolk isn't an urgent problem but when you have a country luke the united states that has their presence everywhere and issues to deal with everywhere, you have to look at risks not just on the korean peninsula but in the broader middle east that and we're looking at a deadline. as the president has said in
8:36 am
interviews he chooses not to recertify a deal with iran. what happens if he says iran's not abiding by the agreement? >> there's a problem. they could continue to wave sanctions and stay in the deal if they want to, but the whole point of decertifying, it seems, is donald trump wants to get out of this deal. i think that's a terrible mistake. if you look at what we're dealing with with north korea, we're running up against the possible to having to use military force to stop north koreans from putting a bomb on top of a missile. iran's nuclear program is in a box. blowing up the nuclear deal at a moment when we're dealing with north korea seems like it is creating a problem that doesn't currently exist. >> and general may it is has said he supposed it even though he finds flaws in it. >> right.
8:37 am
>> and even president obama. >> this is the thing about any diploma diplomacy. you're never going to get anything you want. there's also imperfections, but it is a heck of a lot better situation when we're dealing with iran right now than what is happening in north korea and the last thing we want to do is put iran on a packet where they represent the same kind of threat as north korea does. >> you and i both know people in that administration who would admit bravesly now they missed opportunities with north korea and they allows things to escalate? what's different now? >> you know, it's interesting. many have to approach it with humidity. that's been true going back for 20 years. so i'm sympathetic to the current administration. i think what's different today is that trump has the possibility of getting china's attention in a way that is more
8:38 am
direct and decisive than previously could. >> sanctions deathly on china? secondly, china is worried as. that does give them leverage if we use it effectively not if we pop off with crazy rhetoric. i think we could produce a scenario in which they sit down and get the north koreans to freeze, freeze their testing and freeze the progress and put us in a position where we slow this clock down. i would argue it's time if china
8:39 am
to step up. >> they provide their ak question ens. >> they should be paying not only for north korean coal but compliance. >> that's a lot of money i would presume. >> it's one thing to be able to put it to use in this is thatlet no previous administration has tried that approach. >> one other thing that's different is looking at saudi arabia is my understanding. they took a position they should be talking to iran and trying to get them together whereas president trump has stepped forward and said we're all behind what saudi arabia is trying to do in isolating iran. >> my view is that over time the only long term solution to all of the chaos in the middle east is if there is some kind of arrangement where saudi arabia and arabia get on the same page. >> is that likely? >> today iran has too much confidence and the saudis have too little confidence, and i do
8:40 am
think it's the right strategy to boost saudi confidence to show we have their back and to dent it by showing them we're not going let them get away with things across the nation. but ultimately it has to be pounded toward a diplomatic solution. >> if hillary clinton had been elected president, everybody assumes you would have had one of the principal roles as security adviser o something like that. we ask this question and i'm sure you ask it. why did she lose? >> that's a very difficult question that to this day keeps me up at night. i don't think there is any one reason. i think there's a combination of facto facto factors. frankly if the election had been held one week earlier or later she might have one. there was the issue with comey in russia. there was the chance that the country want drad matic change.
8:41 am
>> why didn't you see that or why didn't she see that? there were stories she was unhappy about that and her husbandings the direction of the campaign speaking to those issues. >> i believe we in the campaign were slow to seeing the sheer breadth and depth and anger. part of that is you had a pretty, president obama, who had actually put the economy pack on a solid track and the 2012 race that masked some of this. so it's fair to say we should have done a better job early in the campaign and seeing what we were up against and dealing with it. but i don't think it was the specific tactics. it was deep structural force and skponch news -- >> speaking of where mark was. >> yeah. that doesn't mean we shouldn't
