7:00 am
robin. south korea is saying this morning that north korea, just 25 or 30 miles from here, has moved one of its missiles to the east coast, a missile with considerable range. the moment of explosion is approaching. that's the looming threat this morning from north korea saying they have the final approval to launch, quote, merciless military strikes on the united states involving the possible use of cutting-edge nuclear weapons. >> some of the actions they've taken over the last few weeks present a real and clear danger and threat to the interests of certainly our allies. >> reporter: now the u.s. is matching those threats with strategic deployments. the missiles do not have the range to reach the u.s. mainland, but the u.s. is matching north korean threats with strategic deployments to the region. mobilizing an advance missile
7:01 am
defense system, the terminal high altitude area defense battery or thad. to protect guam and likely within range of that north korean missile. the thad system using truck interceptors. >> i don't want to be the secretary of defense who was wrong once. and warplanes including fighter jets, u2 spy plane and attack jets in the skies as part of a massive military exercise. this morning, including practice in case of a chemical weapons attack. north korea has one of the largest chemical weapons stockpiles in the world. of course, the biggest threat is a nuclear weapon or a missile. we asked the head of u.s. forces here in south korea whether the north koreans had a nuclear weapon they could put on a missile. he said, we are not certain, but we have to take the threat seriously. of course, if they did launch some sort of nuclear weapon, it
7:02 am
would be suicide for the north korean leader. george and robin? >> it sure would. okay, martha, thanks. more from our chief white house correspondent jonathan karl. jon, a delicate balancing act. they want to deter north korea, defend against the possible attack but have to be careful about provoking one too. >> reporter: that's right. no doubt that the white house is taking this very seriously. i am told the president is getting regular updates, not just on the north korean military developments but even the rhetoric coming out of north korea. but, george, the real goal right now is to try to turn the temperature down so while the u.s. has made it clear with those military maneuvers that they will respond to any attack coming from the north, they want to turn the temperature down now because the biggest danger is a miscalculation that could lead to war. >> and, you know, we've seen these cycles of bluster from north korea in the past. new factor here, though, is this new, young dictator, kim jong-un, and not much is known about him. >> well, that is exactly right.
7:03 am
we've certainly seen over the top rhetoric from his father. i mean year after year this happens in an effort to try to get stuff out of the international community but they don't know much about kim jong-un and the other fact here is the bottom line is north korea has made advances in their military. they've got a better missile program now. their nuclear program is certainly more advanced than it's ever been so there's a lot of uncertainty even though they see this as part of the typical pattern. >> successful test a couple months back, another one possibly coming later this month. jon karl, thanks very much. >> all right, george. to that high alert for law enforcement and new warnings about two armed and dangerous white supremacists targeting police. colorado authorities issuing a strong warning overnight and abc's pierre thomas has the latest. good morning, pierre. >> reporter: good morning, robin. today here in texas and across the country, some police are concerned that thugs have declared open season on public officials. >> officer safety bulletin,

7:09 am
i'm thinking my whole family in bed, everybody has a ring. >> we'll grab a mirror until that happens. >> green lantern a year away from being out of a job. >> thank you josh. the latest on that basketball firestorm at rutgers. the coach caught on tape abusing his players was fired yesterday but that has not stopped the controversy. abc's gio benitez is on the story and higher-ups at rutgers now under fire too. >> reporter: so many are scratching their heads wondering why the university didn't do more before this video got out. this morning, the man at the center of the rutgers basketball scandal is without a job and speaking out. >> there's no explanation for what's on those films because there is no excuse for it. >> reporter: but now the question is should anyone else bear some responsibility for head coach mike rice's appalling behavior. >> [ bleep ]. >> reporter: rice was fired wednesday after abc's sister

7:11 am
forward austin johnson's mother says she feels guilty. >> i texted austin and say in some way i feel i might have failed you. if i had known the gravity i think i would have more strongly counselled him to leave. >> reporter: stacy williams tells me her son and teammates would talk about the coach's behavior but never complained. some said they were afraid to lose their scholarships. others simply thought it was part of that basketball culture. >> boy, that's the scariest part of all right there. thank you. >> still, the fact that they saw it four months ago. >> yeah, this one is not over. >> it's not over. >> a shock. but now to the latest on the desperate search for two teen hikers who vanished while hiking at a southern california forest. one of the hikers was found and rescued overnight. now the hunt for the other hiker has intensified and abc's abbie boudreau has the latest for us this morning. good morning, abbie. >> reporter: good morning, robin. it was a dramatic rescue

like this, this is what is left of the gate. these ruins were once an elaborate temple built around a cave people believe led straight down into the depths of hell. back in 24 a.d., strabo wrote "this space is full of a vapor so misty and dense that one can scarcely see the ground, any animal that passes inside meets instant death" which is why these scientists put on gas masks for their work. it is an archaeological find thrilling enough for an "indiana jones" plot but this is not the first claim laid to satan's front door. in turkmenistan this crater is one of the other alleged gates to hell. easy to see why. the fire there has been burning more than 40 years but back to those ruins in turkey they covered up the entrance to the gates of hell which is perhaps for the best. we all remember what happened in "raiders of the lost ark" when they dug up those religious
