North Korea Warns It Is Considering A Missile Attack On Guam

South Koreans say war with North Korea unlikely: 'I'm not scared'
Guam is also a popular destination for Asian tourists, especially from Japan and South Korea but, for now, there are no real signs that travelers are canceling trips - it's hard to to find a room at the resorts dotted around the island. US bombers have flown over the Korean Peninsula several times to show American strength after Pyongyang's missile tests.
"Qn attack on Guam is an attack on the US and America will be defended", said Republican Governor Eddie Calvo.
The escalating threat arising from nuclear-armed North Korea's recent series of missile tests is prompting South Korea to beef up its military muscle and experts warn it could spur an arms buildup elsewhere in Northeast Asia. -South Korea exercises begin. The annual exercises, called Ulchi-Freedom Guardian, are expected to run from August 21 to 31.
Japan and South Korea vowed a strong reaction as well if the North follows through with its threat.
After North Korea's second test of an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) on July 28, South Korean President Moon Jae-in ordered a speedy deployment of the controversial U.S. THAAD anti-missile defence system, reversing his earlier decision to postpone it pending an environmental review. Pyongyang has laid out plans to strike near the USA territory of Guam.
US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson sought to calm tensions after Trump's remarks, saying "Americans should sleep well at night".
The problem, as clearly demonstrated during the last several chaotic days, is that North Korea doesn't want to talk.
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.
On Wednesday the U.S. president responded by boasting of America's nuclear arsenal, saying it was "far stronger and more powerful than ever before".
Trump's bluster, however, stands in stark contrast to an ongoing back channel for negotiations between the United States and North Korea, which came to light Friday. "While we have heard threats like this in the past, I take them very seriously".
Regional tensions are mounting as Washington and Pyongyang ratchet up their war of words, with President Donald Trump warning Pyongyang would "truly regret" any hostile action against the US.
Chinese government-backed scholars said Beijing is deeply concerned about the latest statements from Trump and North Korea. We want our island-style groove just like we always have. This week intelligence documents showed North Korean plans are further along than anticipated.
Trump said this week the US would unleash "fire and fury" on North Korea if it continued to threaten the U.S.
According to the U.S. Pacific Command, the drill will include 500 Marines and 18 aircraft operating out of the 35th Fighter Wing at Misawa Air Base, on the northern tip of the island of Honshu.
He said his administration had been working on the order since the first reports of nuclear threats.
Seoul's defence chief Song Young-Moo said recently the South was "fully capable" of building its own nuclear weapon but was not considering the option for now.
"We are playing right into Kim Jong-un's hands", General Thurman said.
Alternatively, United States destroyers equipped with Aegis ballistic missile defenses could take down a missile at an even longer range, before it re-enters the Earth's atmosphere.
