Guam Fires Off 'Imminent Missile Threat' Doc Amid North Korea's Threat

Guam Fires Off 'Imminent Missile Threat' Doc Amid North Korea's Threat

President Donald Trump warned that North Korea would "face fire and fury like the world has never seen" if Pyongyang keeps threatening the United States.

North Korea this week announced a detailed plan to launch a salvo of ballistic missiles toward the U.S. Pacific territory, which is a major military hub and home to U.S. bombers.

North Korea said on Saturday that almost 3.5 million workers, party members and soldiers volunteered to join or rejoin its army to resist new U.N. sanctions and to fight against the United States in the current geopolitical tension between Pyongyang and Washington. In 2013, state media cited leader Kim Jong Un as having ordered his military to prepare plans on launching strikes on USA military bases in Guam, Hawaii and South Korea as well as the American mainland.

"For me because I'm a father, so it's really concerning, you know, I wish it didn't have to come to that", he said.

The exercises are expected to run from August 21-31 and involve tens of thousands of troops on the ground and in the sea and air. -South Korea drills begin.

USA officials say they will be going ahead with long-scheduled military exercises with South Korea.

"North Korea has always threatened other countries".

North Korea's Minju Joson newspaper, meanwhile, lashed back at the U.S.in an editorial Saturday.




Like other USA territories, Guam has a sometimes complicated relationship with the US mainland but many across the island say despite the threats and concerns they feel reassured and protected by the military - especially in times of tense, geopolitical sparring. US bombers have flown over the Korean Peninsula several times to show American strength after Pyongyang's missile tests. US allies Japan and South Korea quickly vowed a strong reaction if the North were to follow through.

United States officials have said new steps that would target Chinese banks and firms doing business with Pyongyang are in the works, but these have appeared to be put on hold to give Beijing time to show it is serious about enforcing new UN sanctions.

The analysis was said to have been completed on July 28 in a classified summary by the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA).

"Let her speak for Germany", Trump said, when asked about the comment.

Watch Room staff monitor news and updates and coordinate with agencies on local in an event of emergency Saturday, Aug. 12, 2017 as Guam Homeland Security opens its 24-hour Watch Room operation in response to the threats from North Korea, in Hagatna, Guam.

Tension in the region rose when North Korea staged two nuclear bomb tests a year ago and increased further when it launched two intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) tests in July in defiance of world powers.

"I think escalating the rhetoric is the wrong answer", Merkel added. "Perhaps she is referring to Germany".
