North Korea to complete attack plan on Guam by mid-August

Posted: Updated:

North Korea has issued its response to President Trump’s “fire and fury” comments on Wednesday. The communist country’s military revealed its plan to possibly fire four intermediate-range ballistic missiles around Guam. According to a report by the Yonhap News Agency the missiles would not directly strike Guam but instead fly over Japan and land near the territory.

The report goes on to state that North Korea is “seriously examining the plan for an enveloping strike at Guam through simultaneous fire of four Hwasong-12 intermediate-range strategic ballistic rockets in order to interdict the enemy forces on major military bases on Guam and to signal a crucial warning to the U.S.”. The plan will be reported to Kim Jong-un by mid-August.

Guam is a territory of the United States. People born in Guam are U.S. Citizens. The population is about 160,000. It is home to Andersen Air Force Base and Naval Base Guam.  Despite the ramped up rhetoric from North Korea there has been no change in the threat level in Guam.
