(CBS) The United States has "robust plans for any contingencies" involving North Korea, including military action, the White House said Thursday
amid a flurry of criticism from Democrats and talk of war from Pyongyang.
Presidential spokesman Ari Fleischer said there is a "real cause for concern" over North Korea's assertions Wednesday that pre-emptive attacks on
its nuclear facilities would trigger "total war." He said President George W. Bush still believes North Korea's nuclear ambitions can be curbed
"This kind of talk only hurts North Korea," which faces international isolation, the spokesman said. "That's the real cause for concern ... but we
always have contingency plans."
