Guam Residents Fear Attack After North Korea Statements; Gov. Says 'No Threat'

Guam Residents Fear Attack After North Korea Statements; Gov. Says 'No Threat' Guam Residents Fear Attack After North Korea Statements; Gov. Says 'No Threat'

"This time, the North Korean threat is different, and more worrisome because North Korea's Guam-specific threat was reportedly in reaction to President Trump's statement saying: 'North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States".

"Trump said the us would take tough measures if North Korea fired off missiles, but it did not", said Zhang Liangui, a professor at the ruling Communist Party's main training academy.

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, Reuers reported. It also said that the two "reiterated their mutual commitment to denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula".

Worst of all, if American intentions aren't clear, an attempt to intercept a missile might be misinterpreted by Pyongyang - or Beijing or Moscow - and lead to a real shooting war.

"Since the subway stations in South Korea have enough depth and strength, we will be able to survive attacks".

Tensions with North Korea are rising. The trip has been long scheduled and was not arranged in response to the North Korean nuclear threat.

U.S. President Donald Trump spoke of "fire and fury" from the very onset.

North Korea claims it is in the final stages of preparing a plan to launch four intermediate-range ballistic missiles over Japan and into waters off the tiny island of Guam, where about 7,000 U.S. troops are based and 160,000 American civilians live.

"We have to understand that even in a million-to-one scenario we have to be prepared with Guam being what it has been for decades, an American territory with strategic military assets in place in a very dynamic region".

NATO spokesman Dylan White would not speculate on the possibility, but said the alliance is "concerned" by North Korea's "pattern of inflammatory and threatening rhetoric". The main beach front on the island was packed with tourists dozing under trees or on the sun loungers of five-star hotels lined up before a calm sea.

"Todd Thompson, a lawyer who lives on Guam, said he laughed off past threats because he 'figured cooler heads in Washington would prevail, and it was just an idle threat'".


How likely is North Korea to attack the US?

There have been no air raid drills or cars in camouflage netting as has been the case during previous crises. He pointed out that the North had talked about "aiming fire in the past at South Korean targets", including things as small as propaganda loudspeakers. In July, more than 61,000 tourists from South Korea visited the island, an increase of 25 percent over past year.

Regarding the circumstances under which the plan would be implemented, the official said that upon a thorough review by the military, it would "soon" be presented to the reclusive Kim Jong-un, to be put into practice at "any moment" he decides to.

The 27-year-old is preparing to cast into the turquoise ocean that extends as far as the eye can see - the same waters that North Korea is developing a plan to send four missiles into, less than 25 miles from where he stands.

The letter also called for diplomacy with the North Korean government, and argued that any preemptive strike against the country would require Congressional approval.

Governor Eddie Calvo assured the residents of Guam of their safety.

A bout of verbal posturing between United States president Donald Trump and the North Korean regime has set the world's nerves on edge.

Trump also brushed away calls for caution from other world leaders, including Germany's Angela Merkel. "I feel it would be a pretty stupid idea to do that", she said.

"I haven't really thought about preparation".

Todd and Mitch Thompson, two brothers who are both lawyers on Guam, said they haven't seen anyone panicking or stocking up on supplies. "Perhaps she is referring to Germany".

"Hopefully it'll all work out", Trump said.
