ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said on Wednesday (July 5) that North Korea's actions were "quickly closing off the possibility of a diplomatic solution" and the United States was prepared to defend itself and its allies. "One of our capabilities lies with our considerable military forces. We will use them if we must, but we prefer not to have to go in that direction," Haley told a U.N.
