Here Is North Korea's Guam Strike Plan

Here Is North Korea's Guam Strike Plan”

The U.S. Seventh Fleet now has six Aegis ballistic missile defense ships in the region capable of targeting North Korean missiles, and Japan has a further four.

With all the sabre-rattling of North Korea and the prospect of the waters off Guam becoming a new testing ground for its intermediate-range missiles, the people of this tiny U.S. Pacific territory seem to be taking things in their stride.

Padilla was also confident that there "is still a lot of room for dialogue" to thwart the North Korea's plan.

"President Donald Trump says his critics are only complaining about his tough rhetoric on North Korea "because it's me".

Australian stock futures slumped early on Friday and other Asian markets looked set to follow as tensions ramped up between the US and North Korea, sending investors into less risky assets such as gold, the yen and USA government bonds. Trump's comments followed reports that the North has mastered a technology needed to strike the United States with a nuclear missile. Hawaii is about 4,000 miles (6,500 km) to the east.

"Today's inflation data put the Fed on pause and really diminishes the fact that there's still some noise going around with the North Korea-U.S. situation", said Phil Blancato, CEO of Ladenburg Thalmann Asset Management. In 1950, an act of Congress made it an unincorporated organized territory of the United States.

Preemptive strikes, the statement added, were "no longer the monopoly of the U.S".

But there's also some resentment about not being able to vote in the general election for USA president. The suffering of Guamanians during the occupation was acknowledged by the U.S. Congress a year ago, in a bill providing for compensation to survivors.

The island is home to two major US military installations - Andersen Air Force Base with its fleet of powerful bombers and Naval Base Guam. I want to reassure the people of Guam that now there is no threat to our island or the Marianas.

They would have a flight time of 17 minutes 45 seconds, travel 3,356.7 kilometres (around 2,086 miles) and come down 30 to 40 kilometres away from Guam, it said - which would put the impact points just outside U.S. territorial waters. Its chief languages are English and Chamorro. Both are managed under Joint Base Marianas.

Flatter flight paths could make them more threatening to extended targets, including, it now appears, the area around Guam. The air base was built in 1944, when the USA was preparing to send bombers to Japan during World War II.

Guam is also the home port for nuclear submarines and a contingent of Special Operations Forces. "The military action the KPA is about to take will be an effective remedy for restraining the frantic moves of the the southern part of the Korean peninsula and its vicinity".

The U.S. island territory in the western Pacific Ocean is ringed by beaches, studded with palm trees and packed with bombs.

The U.S. military began rotating bombers " the B-2 stealth bomber as well as the B-1 and B-52 " to Andersen in 2004. "While our arrival numbers are achieving new records, we must remain focused on delivering the very best Guam product to promote in our markets".

The current crisis escalated following reports this week that the Defense Intelligence Agency believes North Korea may have cleared a major hurdle in its weapons program by miniaturizing a nuclear warhead that could be placed on missiles capable of striking the American mainland.

Guam itself is equipped with its own THAAD missile system, which could intercept any missiles launched from Pyongyang toward the island.
