President George W. Bush said Wednesday the United States would stop North Korea from transferring nuclear weapons to Iran or al-Qaida and that the communist country would then face "a grave consequence." Bush refused to spell out how the United States would retaliate. "They'd be held to account," the president said in an ABC News interview. After North Korea tested a nuclear weapon on Oct. 9, Bush warned that any transfer of nuclear material would be considered a grave threat to the security of the United States. "If we get intelligence that they're about to transfer a nuclear weapon, we would stop the transfer, and we would deal with the ships that were taking the - or the airplane that was dealing with taking the material to somebody," the president told ABC.
