Missile incoming? Head underground, Guam tells residents

When President Trump tweeted Friday morning that “military solutions are now fully in place locked and loaded,” it might have been a stark reminder rather than a signal of heightened preparedness North Korea's Nuclear Threat Doesn't Phase Samsung's Shareholders

As announced by North Korea, which added detail to a plan first unveiled on Wednesday, the planned path of the missiles would cross some of the world's busiest sea and air traffic routes. "Some number of which can reach the United States". Andersen Air Force Base hosts a Navy helicopter squadron and Air Force bombers that rotate to Guam from the USA mainland. She declined to say whether Germany would stand with the U.S.in case of a military conflict with North Korea and called on the U.N. Security Council to continue to address the issue. US military options range from nothing to a full-on conventional assault by air, sea and ground forces.

He concluded, "May God bless the people of Guam, and may God bless America".

"In many ways the pattern of belligerent rhetoric and weapons demonstrations is similar to previous years, and ... there are multiple actions the US or North Korea could take before ... targeting the other with a missile", Alison Evans, deputy head of the Asia-Pacific desk at HIS Markit's Country Risk team, told the Post.

The US has always been opposed to the North Korean missile and military nuclear programs. Three weeks later, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled same-sex marriage was legal throughout the U.S., including all its territories. But it nonetheless showed the North had general knowledge of how to build a small nuclear weapon.

What does Guam have to do with it?

But officials in Guam, the tiny island territory that Kim Jong Un has threatened to attack, aren't keeping citizens in the dark.

The ship-based Aeigs system can protect against short- to intermediate-range ballistic missiles during the midflight or terminal stages, and its powerful long-range radar can be used to help improve the accuracy of the Patriot or THAAD.

Amid rising tensions between the US and North Korea, Malacanang on Thursday assured the public the government is prepared for possible missile attacks near Guam by North Korea.

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".

Meanwhile, media in China, which has been warning against an escalation, are calling on Beijing to remain on the sidelines in the event of a first strike by North Korea. Guam officially became a USA territory in 1950 and was put under the administration of the Department of the Navy. That would allow the country to inflict significant damage on a USA ally, even without using a nuclear weapon.

Concerns are particularly high in Seoul, a city of 10 million people just 50km from the highly fortified border.
