Pentagon Sends Military Message to N. Korea

The Pentagon puts bombers on alert for possible deployment near North Korea. The apparent message is that the Bush administration is not too distracted by Iraq to respond to a threat on the Korean peninsula. But the administration says it's committed to a diplomatic solution to North Korea's renewed pursuit of nuclear weapons. NPR's Michele Kelemen reports.
