Japan says 'can never tolerate' North Korea provocations

The South which hosts 28,500 US troops on its soil to defend it from the North has been banned from building its own nuclear weapons since it signed an atomic energy deal with Washington in 1974 Guam tourism : Same threat different day and Guam's beaches are busy today

Lavrov said Russian Federation doesn't accept the North's nuclear weapons bid and pointed at a proposal by China and Russian Federation under which Pyongyang would freeze its nuclear and missile tests while the USA and South Korea would halt their military drills.

'With that, everybody should conduct their lives like business as usual.

However, Jeremiah Tenorio said even with the THAAD in place, he's still concerned.

"Qn attack on Guam is an attack on the USA and America will be defended", said Republican Governor Eddie Calvo. He plays in a psychedelic blues band every week and is a dean at the local community college. Many refugees fleeing Vietnam were evacuated through Guam.

Calvo reassured the island's residents that there was no change in the threat level resulting from North Korea. "I feel it would be a pretty stupid idea to do that", she said.

"But carrying out physical attacks is a different issue", he said.

Bennett said North Korea would be hoping for the U.S.to fail, but even if the missile defenses failed it wouldn't be a disaster.

"Those are things that were not known in the past", Hartz says. But North Korean intransigence may leave Moon in the same policy rut as his predecessor, Park Geun-hye, who also initially vowed more flexibility.

The US military has a huge footprint across south-east Asia and the Pacific, particularly in Japan and South Korea.

It was not the first time Guam has been put on notice and similar threats made since 2013 led to the USA military permanently deploying a Terminal High Altitude Area Defence (THAAD) interceptor system on the tiny island.

An estimated 85 percent of the 163,000 residents of Guam are Catholic.

Sergey Lavrov said Friday that Russian Federation is strongly anxious about escalating rhetoric coming from Pyongyang and Washington. The nuclear advances were detailed in an official Japanese assessment and in a story by The Washington Post that cited USA intelligence officials and a confidential Defence Intelligence Agency report. "Strategically, it's a ideal spot".

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson sought to calm tensions after Trump's remarks, saying "Americans should sleep well at night". Sold-out hotels are full of tourists, and the beaches are full of runners and sunbathers. "We know that any moment, they could send those (weapons). but I think a lot of us in the end are not too anxious".

There is no sense fretting, she says, about a situation way beyond their control.

The small USA territory of Guam has become a focal point after North Korea's army threatened to use ballistic missiles to create an "enveloping fire" around the island.

The plan calls for sending 12 rockets over Japan to crash in the waters about 30 miles from Guam, which is 2,100 miles east of the Korean peninsula.

A man watches a television screen showing President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un during a news program at the Seoul Train Station in Seoul, South Korea, Thursday, Aug. 10, 2017.

They kicked off a weeks-long joint military exercise Thursday against the backdrop of missile launches by North Korea. It's home to fewer than 200,000 people, but it is of great strategic importance. The air base was built in 1944, when the USA was preparing to send bombers to Japan during World War II.

"If our past generations dealt with it, so can we", said Santos, the Guam Museum employee, who was born and raised on the island.

HU: One of the regulars is Gary Hartz.

A conflict between the North and the USA could have devastating consequences for Asia's fourth-largest economy, with Seoul within range of Pyongyang's vast conventional artillery forces.

Nonetheless, others liken the threats to nothing more than saber-rattling. While the latest rhetoric causes concern, that's as far as it goes, he said.

HARTZ: Well, and on the North Korean side, there are differences of specificity.

They can not vote in U.S. elections and the island's only representative in Congress has no right to vote.

Rolando Zepeda, a teacher, said he was not making any emergency plans for a nuclear attack.

The Pentagon then chose to send two strategic B-1B bombers, which are stationed in Guam, to the outskirts of the Korean peninsula in response to the threats.

Guam has since 2013 been home to the only Terminal High Altitude Area Defense System (THAAD) system to be permanently stationed on US territory.

A willingness to shoot down the missile was a politically important move in the relationship between the two allies, Mr Gatling said, adding that Japan might be better placed to provide data to help the United States track the missile. The Spanish invaded us.

Workers also carried red banners emblazoned with slogans praising their leaders and the country's strength as President Trump continued to tout military action "if Kim Jong-un utters one overt threat against the US". And they helped us out with the Japanese because they wanted this land.

GENEREUX: Oh, definitely. It definitely makes us a target. "Right now, it is just a war of words, rather than actual warfare".

McCain says he takes exception to Trump's comments "because you got to be sure you can do what you say you're going to do".
