Mattis warns: US 'will never accept a nuclear North Korea'

"Make no mistake - any attack on the United States, or our allies, will be defeated. And any use of nuclear weapons will be met with a massive military response that is both effective and overwhelming," Mattis said in prepared remarks after defense talks in Seoul.
