Guam issues fact sheets preparing residents for a nuclear attack

Guam got caught in US- North Korea global war Guam issues fact sheets preparing residents for a nuclear attack

They called on all parties to de-escalate.

Hours earlier, as North Korea's war of words with US President Donald Trump intensified, Pyongyang said it was developing a plan to launch four intermediate-range missiles towards the Pacific island.

On Tuesday, US President Donald Trump threatened to hit North Korea "with fire and fury", which some said could "only be interpreted" as a nuclear threat. Beyond that, Papua New Guinea is 1,400 miles away, the Philippines are 1,600 miles from its shores, and Japan 1,623 miles.

"The moment North Korea makes a move it will be all over - for them".

The Philippine consulate in Agana responded to North Korea's threat to fire missiles near the U.S. territory of Guam with an emergency contingency plan to help the thousands of Filipinos there respond to an attack.

"You know there's some possibility something could happen", he said.

In South Korea, where both the military and civilians are used to facing threats from North Korea, Defense Minister Song Young-moo warned the country's armed forces "to maintain full readiness" to "immediately punish with powerful force" any action against the South.

Iwakuni is one of the main US bases in Japan and was the staging point for F-35 stealth fighters believed to be training for precision strikes on North Korea against Kim Jong Un and his top lieutenants.

For the United States to be more specific on how it plans to counter the bluster coming from the North Korean leader would make Trump the bad guy and Kim the bullied one. Mid-Missouri Republican Congressman Blaine Luetkemeyer tells Moberly radio station KWIX that he expects the U.S.'s missile defense program to come into play.

But now, Kim has publicly crossed Trump.


"If not kept well under control, this verbal spat could turn into a military clash", he said, adding that China should dispatch diplomats to engage in shuttle diplomacy to bring the sides to the negotiating table.

"President Trump's inflammatory rhetoric undermines our global credibility and is unlikely to de-escalate the situation", Sen.

Most of North Korea's recent missile tests have landed in the Sea of Japan, which lies between Japan and the eastern coast of the Asian continent.

"North Korea's provocative actions, including this time, are obviously provocative to the region including Japan as well as to the security of the worldwide community", Mr Yoshihide Suga, Japan's chief government spokesman, told reporters.

Tokyo has reportedly begun deploying Patriot missile systems after North Korea threatened to target the US Pacific territory of Guam with ballistic missiles traveling over the Japanese skies. And that could scuttle cooperation on North Korea.

But regulars at Guam's only British pub - the Tower of London - seemed unconcerned.

A single PAC-3 unit covers an area only several dozen kilometers in radius, leaving many "blank areas" across the country where they have yet to be deployed.

With the growing threat of long-range ballistic missile launches from North Korea, intelligence reports that Pyongyang has miniaturized a nuclear weapon, and concerns about China's continued push to expand its naval capacity while waging a war of influence across the Pacific, a new front has opened up in the Pacific's strategic framework: The South Pacific. "The real threat is stumbling into an inadvertent nuclear war on the Korean Peninsula by misunderstanding or miscalculation". It has seen various popular movements pushing for greater self-government or even US statehood, most notably a significant but failed effort in the 1980s to make it a commonwealth on par with Puerto Rico. "It's time to tone down the rhetoric".

The United States and South Korea remain technically still at war with North Korea after the 1950-53 Korean conflict ended with a truce, not a peace treaty.

Japan's missile defense system has two stages of preparedness. "Making the warhead sufficiently small, light and robust to survive an ICBM delivery is extremely challenging and still beyond North Korea's reach". "Washington should stimulate Pyongyang's desire to engage with the outside world and return to the worldwide community".
