North Korea has issued another threat against Guam with a claim that they will shoot missiles into waters near the island.
Guam – North Korea has threatened to shoot missiles “into the waters near” Guam once again ahead of joint U.S. and South Korean naval exercises which are scheduled for Monday according to a report out of CNN
North Korea threatened to develop a plan to shoot missiles off the coast of Guam in mid August after President Donald Trump warned that any threat from the hermit kingdom would result in “Fire and Fury” the likes of which the world has never seen before. DPRK leader Kim Jong Un reviewed the plan in mid August but opted not to shoot any missiles in Guam’s direction. Instead since then North Korea has opted to shoot two missiles over Northern Japan into the Pacific Ocean.
This time the DPRK state media is warning that “reckless moves” by the us will compel them to take action according to CNN. The threats do not come from Kim Jong Un himself but rather from a researcher for the Institute for American Studies of the North Korean Foreign Ministry named Kim Kwang Hak. The KCNA quoted the researcher as saying,”We have already warned several times that we will take counteractions for self-defense, including a salvo of missiles into waters near the US territory of Guam,” and “The US military action hardens our determination that the US should be tamed with fire and lets us take our hand closer to the ‘trigger’ for taking the toughest countermeasure.”
