North Korean military reiterates Guam strike plan threat

Nuclear-armed North Korea mocked President Donald Trump as "bereft of reason" on Thursday, raising the stakes in their standoff with an unusually detailed plan to send a salvo of missiles towards the U.S. territory of Guam. During World War II, Japan seized Guam for about two-and-a-half years, but after the war was won, U.S. Congress again made it a U.S. territory.

The Secretary of State said Trump's statement was meant to send a message to Kim Jong Un in a way the North Korean leader "would understand".

Pyongyang on Thursday warned Washington that it could fire intermediate-range ballistic missiles near the waters 30 to 40 km off the coast of the United States island of Guam in the Pacific.

In the case of an actual attack, people should "find the nearest building, preferably built of brick of concrete, and go inside to avoid any radioactive material outside", the fact sheet says.

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 USA military service members. It's also unclear whether North Korea has mastered the technology needed to protect the missiles from extreme heat and pressure upon atmospheric re-entry so they can hit the intended target.

He said the "sensible" way to proceed is to step up global pressure on the regime of Kim Jong Un through the United Nations.

The White House says Presidents Trump and Xi spoke on the phone on Friday night, USA time, reiterating their commitment to solve the rising tensions on the Korean peninsula.

US President Donald Trump's warning to North Korea and Pyongyang's threat of possible armed retaliation drove investors away from stocks and other risky assets on Wednesday and into textbook safe-havens like gold and Treasuries.

"It must be noted that the combined allied militaries now possess the most precise, rehearsed and robust defensive and offensive capabilities on Earth", Mattis said. This part of the missile's trajectory is called "midcourse", and it is the most difficult time for an interception, because a fast-moving warhead can also release decoy balloons that are hard to distinguish from the real thing.

"Well, I think as far as reassurance they probably feel as reassured as they can feel".

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".

North Korea's rockets have a spotty track record.

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. Altogether, 7,000 US military personnel are stationed on Guam.

"If they had confidence from their readings that they would not hit USA territory, it's possible they'd just let them fall into the sea, but I think they'd also take a very serious look at shooting them down", he said. They threatened the U.S., other countries, and they threaten Guam. It's also the closest US territory to North Korea, about 2,220 miles southeast of it.

"The latest threats over North Korea have finally escalated to the point where market has been obliged to react", Ric Spooner, chief market analyst at CMC Markets, wrote in a note.

Padilla was also confident that there "is still a lot of room for dialogue" to thwart the North Korea's plan. "They have said that America will be defended".

The way to avert a war with North Korea is to have a conversation, and that's not happening, Hecker said.
