Guam adviser urges calm after North Korea threat

Guam adviser urges calm after North Korea threat

Trump's latest comments were a continuation of days of incendiary rhetoric, including his warning on Tuesday that the United States would unleash "fire and fury" on Pyongyang if it threatened the United States.

Residents of the tiny territory - just 12 miles at its widest point and circled with lovely beaches - find themselves again caught in the middle of a war of words as a volley of hostile rhetoric was launched between North Korea and the United States, including pointed threats of nuclear action.

Governor Torres said he had faith in President Trump to make appropriate decisions for the security and protection of the CNMI and neighbour Guam.

Guam's Office of Civil Defense began disseminating fact sheets Friday to help residents prepare for a missile attack from North Korea. The plan could be sent to leader Kim Jong Un for approval within a week or so.

Some analysts expressed concern that the USA was not doing all it could to co- ordinate with Seoul, where Mr Trump has yet to nominate an ambassador.

The US planes, which are capable of carrying nuclear bombs, followed up the drills with Japan with a separate exercise with South Korean Forces, the ASDF said.

I think it is the objective of every one of the top teams and every one of the top team managers", Mourinho said. Manchester United is in talks with Zlatan Ibrahimovic about the striker playing again for the club.

Guam itself is equipped with its own THAAD missile system, which could intercept any missiles launched from Pyongyang toward the island. "We are with you a thousand percent, " Trump said, according to video of the call posted on Calvo's Facebook page.

Guam, a tropical island more than 3,000 km (2,000 miles) to the southeast of North Korea, is home to about 163,000 people and a U.S. air base, Navy installation that includes a submarine squadron, a Coast Guard group and roughly 6,000 U.S. military service members. North Koreans have lived for decades with the state media message that war is imminent, the U.S.is to blame and their country is ready to defend itself.

Mr Trump said North Korea had "better get their act together or they are going to be in trouble like few nations have ever been in trouble". He added that Kim Jong Un should "take heed of the" U.N.'s security council, which believes North Korea "poses a threat to global security and stability".

Japan's ability to destroy North Korean missiles in its airspace as they are ascending has been called into question.

If any of the four long-range missiles successfully made it through U.S. defense, Mount said, it would be a huge victory for the rogue state.

Last month, Seoul offered Red Cross talks to discuss reunions for families separated by the 1950-53 Korean War, but the North has kept mum toward the proposal.
