  • How the US Would Stop Missiles Headed to Guam

President Donald Trump tweeted Friday that the US military is "locked and loaded" if North Korea acts "unwisely, " escalating an exchange of threats between the nuclear-armed nations.

Trump has pushed China to do more to pressure North Korea to halt its nuclear weapons programme.

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.

One of its military leaders also called Trump "bereft of reason" and said he was "extremely getting on the nerves" of its armed forces.

The report quotes Xi as saying: "At present, the relevant parties must maintain restraint and avoid words and deeds that would exacerbate the tension on the Korean Peninsula".

Military solutions are now fully in place, locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely.

The president also predicted a boom in tourism for the US territory in light of the North Korean threat.

Trump continues, "This is between you and I, but you don't talk like they talk, you can't do that, and you can't do that with people like us".

The White House says that Trump - in a phone call Friday to President Xi Jinping (shee jihn-peeng) - saluted Xi for China's United Nations vote to impose tougher sanctions on North Korea.

North Korea has lashed back at the USA following President Donald Trump's latest warnings.

The note also asks Guam's residents to "take time to talk" to family members or co-workers who might be troubled after North Korea vowed to ignite an "enveloping fire" of test missiles near the island, which is a US territory.

Servicepersons of the Ministry of People's Security met to express full support for the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) government statement.

Guam, an island half the size of Hong Kong and some 7,000 km from the USA mainland, is a target because of its naval base and air force base, from which two B-1B supersonic bombers were deployed close to the Korean peninsula on Tuesday.

The North Korean military is "capable of fighting any war the USA wants, is now on the standby to launch fire into its mainland, waiting for an order of final attack", the rogue nation said in its statement.

Japan's anti-missile defence operation system deploys the navy's Aegis to bring down airborne missiles while the PAC-3 system is used to counter the projectiles evading these interceptors.

President Donald Trump spoke Friday with Guam Governor Eddie Baza Calvo, who posted to his social media accounts a video of the three-minute phone conversation, assuring the lawmaker that his constituents are safe in light of North Korea's threat to fire ICBMs at the island. "We are with you a thousand percent. She's certainly not referring to the United States, that I can tell you".

The tit-for-tat war of words began this week after Pyongyang threatened to retaliate against Washington for new United Nations sanctions against the regime. "And if anything happens to Guam, there's going to be big, big trouble in North Korea".

The final stages of the political process to win Mr. Xi's favor for a place on the standing committee of the party, now a seven-member body that makes the final decisions on the nation's affairs, is underway among the resort's villas and hotels, China's political analysts said. During the call, both said they would boost efforts to enforce new sanctions and denuclearize the Korean Peninsula.

The island is fair game for the North Korean leader because, for one, it is home to 6,000 or so American soldiers and other military personnel and, for another, Guam is a staging ground for United States stealth bombers that, according to a report, could be used to attack Pyongyang.

The paper said, "The powerful revolutionary Paektusan army of the DPRK, capable of fighting any war the US wants, is now on the standby to launch fire into its mainland, waiting for an order of final attack". North Korea claims they're a rehearsal for war.

The threat from North Korea, which was largely dismissed as bluster for years, has become a much more frightening reality.

"I think escalating the rhetoric is the wrong answer, " Merkel added.
