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. This will drastically expand the necessary search area for any country attempting to hunt down North Korea's mobile missiles.

The possibility of escalation is made even more acute by the lack of any means of official communication across the Demilitarized Zone, though there has been no easing of the barrage of inflammatory comments in the US and the North since new sanctions against North Korea were announced last week.

The Washington Post asked a range of experts in both the United States and South Korea if this time was any different.

The U.S. took back control of Guam on July 21, 1944. Officials at both companies attributed the surge to the heightened tension.

As nuclear-armed North Korea's missile stand-off with the USA escalates, calls are mounting in the South for Seoul to build nuclear weapons of its own to defend itself-which would complicate the situation even further.

The Korea Herald wrote in an editorial on Friday that Seoul needed nuclear weapons to defend itself against the North.

There are about 29,000 American troops permanently stationed in South Korea. It's crucial to lower the possibility of these three from occurring.

The North's military chief Ri Myong Su responded saying that if the U.S. continued in its "reckless" behavior, Pyongyang would "inflict the most miserable and merciless punishment upon all the provokers".

In Guam's capital Hagatna, residents were unruffled by Pyongyang's rhetoric. Why we see some advantage in emulating this is beyond me.

"I think the probability of conflict actually breaking out remains low".

North Korea said its military would finalize the plan "by mid-August", then wait for Kim's order.

American and South Korean officials said they would move forward with large-scale military exercises later this month that North Korea claims are a rehearsal for war.
