But first, here she is, the Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. It's great to be here with you. Glad to have you. And you're here for the full hour, so we have a lot to get to.
Well, with your preview into it, there's a lot to talk about in the world today. So let's get right to it and talk about some of the hot spots around the globe that you're dealing with. First up is North Korea, and got tense this week.

Here was the big headline: Let's watch a portion of that. Well, what we've seen is this constant demand for attention. And maybe it's the mother in me or the experience that I've had with small children and unruly teenagers and people who are demanding attention, don't give it to them. They don't deserve it. They are acting out, in a way, to send a message that is not a message we're interested in receiving.
We'll put that up on the screen. We cannot but regard Mrs.
Clinton as a funny lady Sometimes she looks like a primary schoolgirl. Well, David, I think what's important here is the clear message that we're sending to North Korea, and it's one that is now unanimous. The Security Council Resolution made official that North Korea must change their behavior and we have to get back to moving toward verifiable denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula in a peaceful manner.
Now, as you know and as you've reported, they've engaged in a lot of provocative actions in the last months. But what we, China, Russia, South Korea, Japan and literally the unanimous international community have said is, it's not going to work this time.
We're imposing the most stringent sanctions we ever have. We have great cooperation from the world community. China and we are working closely together to enforce these sanctions. We still want North Korea to come back to the negotiating table, to be part of an international effort that will lead to denuclearization.
But we're not going to reward them for doing what they said they would do in and 6. We're not going to reward them for half measures. They now know what we in the world community expect.
But it's interesting; if the posture of this administration was more engagement, even negotiations with our adversaries, it struck me this week that this was a ratcheting up of the rhetoric against North Korea. Well, we want to make clear to North Korea that their behavior is not going to be rewarded. In the past they believe that they have acted out, done things which really went against the norms of the international community and somehow then were rewarded.

Those days are over. We believe that the six-party talk framework which had everybody included is the appropriate way to engage with North Korea. But they say--if I can just stop you, they say we're not playing in that group anymore.
Well, that's what they say. And I think they are very isolated now. I was in the same room with a representative from North Korea who launched a broadside attack on the United States, blaming us for literally everything that has ever gone wrong in North Korea going back decades.
I listened; everyone else just didn't even look at him.
