Aiming Missiles to Fall Near Guam, North Korea's Kim Takes New Risk

North Korea 'carefully examining' plan to strike US territory of Guam

At the time North Korea said it was launching a telecommunications satellite, but Washington, Seoul and Tokyo believed Pyongyang was testing an intercontinental ballistic missile. However, Guamanians are still not allowed to vote in the US presidential election.

Analysts said the North Korean missiles, if launched as the North described, would fall outside the Guam's territorial waters, which extend 13.8 miles from the coast. "They have said that America will be defended".

Intercepting a missile over the open ocean has the added benefit of not being a direct attack on North Korea itself.

Padilla made the statement after North Korean Strategic Force of the Korean People's Army said on Thursday that it was "seriously examining a plan" to launch a missile in Guam.

The US President vowed North Korea would be met with "fire and fury" if the hermit state dares to launch an attack.

Asked if people in Guam should be anxious about North Korea's threats, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis told reporters en route to Seattle this week, "No".

A key USA military stronghold, Guam was the departure point for US B-52 bombers that attacked Hanoi during the 1955-1975 Vietnam war.

According to a statement from China's Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Xi told Trump in a call between the two leaders Saturday that all "relevant parties should exercise restraint and avoid words and actions that would escalate tensions on the Korean Peninsula".

McCain says he takes exception to Trump's comments "because you got to be sure you can do what you say you're going to do". "Some people [say], 'We just want our peace, our island groove that we've always have.' There are other people who are just sick and exhausted of the threats from North Korea because there sure have been many over the years". They are used to the threats from North Korea.

Guam's Homeland Security Adviser George Charfauros urged calm and said defenses are in place for such threats.

"Climate change adaptation: It's a new field", she said, "and you really don't know how well you're preparing for things until 20 years, 30 years down the road".

On Sunday, the United Nations Security Council adopted tough sanctions drafted by the United States that could deprive the North of as much as one-third of its export revenue.

Pairs of B-1s from there have conducted frequent practice runs over Japan and South Korea in recent months, accompanied by fighter jets from the two allies.

The massive blast radius caused by a nuclear device, which North Korea reportedly perfected and miniaturized to deliver on missiles, would make up for some of the lack of accuracy.

That puts its total population of 170,000 in range of the Hwasong-12 intermediate-range ballistic missiles that Kim Jong Un's regime has threatened to fire as a counter-punch to President Donald Trump's caution that the USA would respond with "fire and fury" to provocative actions by North Korea.

It continued, "If the Trump administration does not want the American empire to meet its tragic doom in its tenure, they had better talk and act properly". There's a lot of rhetoric, and I don't think the rhetoric - both on the US side and on the North Korean side - actually reflects true beliefs.
