North Korea Threat: US, Japanese troops prepare for war

Leader Mitch Mc Connell in Congress

They called on all parties to de-escalate.

"It was no accident that North Korea threatened to launch four missiles, it deliberately complicates the decisions of U.S. policy makers", he said.

To this point, Guam Gov. Eddie Calvo supports President Donald Trump's tough talk toward North Korea.

Kim expressed his confidence that the North Koreans wouldn't strike first. Along with a bigger set of manoeuvrs held every spring, the exercises are routinely met by strong condemnation and threats of countermeasures from North Korea.

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.

"I feel that the presence of the military on Guam will help us a lot", said Virgie Matson, 51, a resident of Dededo, Guam's most populated village. "And there are cases where they (have) made a specific threat and carried it out".

It is time for Washington and Pyongyang to meet at the negotiating table, Russian academic Evgeny Kim told Radio Sputnik, adding that the US should lend an ear to Moscow and Beijing's proposal to stop both North Korean missile tests and US-South Korean military drills in the region.

Most Japanese appear happy with that division of labor, despite concerns about North Korea, and Mr. Abe needs to tread carefully if he hopes to change it. They threatened USA, other countries, and they threaten Guam.

Authorities said the regional tensions had not dampened tourists' appetite for the island.

"Since the subway stations in South Korea have enough depth and strength, we will be able to survive attacks". "The big countries should not attack each other, but unite to better cooperate on maintaining the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula".

The U.S. military has said it plans to increase its presence on Guam and will move thousands of U.S. Marines now stationed in Japan to the island between 2024 and 2028. "The real threat is stumbling into an inadvertent nuclear war on the Korean Peninsula by misunderstanding or miscalculation".

Conservative lawmakers in Seoul in recent days have even called for a "nuclear balance" on the peninsula, saying Seoul should ask Washington to redeploy USA nuclear weapons if South Korea is unable to develop its own. "It's time to tone down the rhetoric".

"Definitely, I know Guam is a pretty good target because it's important to the US because of the military", she said.

The Defense Department owns about one-quarter of Guam's 212 square miles.

South Korea's emphasis on transparency on Friday followed a series of statements opposing an armed conflict with the North.

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

If an attack warning is issued, Guam residents should take cover quickly - in a concrete structure, preferably underground - and stay there until instructed otherwise, according to a fact sheet titled "Preparing for an Imminent Missile Threat".
