B1-B bombers return to Guam after Korea sortie

Kim Jong-un the Communist dictator of the Democratic Republic of North Korea

For years, North Korea has claimed Guam is within its missiles' striking distance, making furious statements each time when the US flew powerful bombers from the island's air base to the Korean Peninsula.

"Guam's governor, Eddie Calvo (R), agreed, telling residents of the US territory not to panic".

Aircrews, maintenance and support personnel will continue generating B-1 bomber sorties to demonstrate the continuing US commitment to stability and security in the region, providing commanders with a strategic power-projection platform and fulfilling the need for aircraft that are mission-ready at any time, an important part of national defense during a time of high regional tension, Pacific Air Forces officials said.

Though local officials downplayed any threat, people who live and work on the island, which serves as a launching pad for the US military, said Wednesday they could no longer shrug off the idea of being a potential target.

That threat was just hours after US President Donald Trump warned the regime that any threat to the United States would be met with "fire and fury".

Guam's Homeland Security Advisor George Charfauros told CNN the United States "routinely uses" Aegis-equipped warships around the island chain of the Marianas, of which Guam is the largest. He said he felts like moving out of Guam.

The nuclear and missile technological achievement was reported Tuesday, as was a second intelligence assessment that estimated DPRK leader Kim Jong Un already controls up to 60 nuclear weapons.

Guam is a US-controlled island in the Pacific Ocean around 2,000 miles from North Korea.

Many Democrats in Congress, as well as some Republicans, criticized President Trump's "fire and fury" statement. Sen.

It is home to 6,000 U.S. military personnel, a number expected to nearly double when thousands of U.S. Marines move there from Japan, under a delayed bilateral agreement aimed at reducing the U.S. military footprint on southern island of Okinawa. According to the Korean People's Army statement, its particular focus would be on the Andersen Air Force Base where nuclear-capable bombers are stationed.

Guam's Homeland Security Adviser George Charfauros urged calm and said defenses are in place for such threats. "They have said that America will be defended".

"This is not the time to panic", Calvo said Wednesday. The Office of the Director of National Intelligence could not immediately be reached for comment.
