Threat level remains unchanged despite N. Korea threat to Guam

A Filipino community leader in Guam on Thursday said North Korea's threat to bomb the United States territory is a concern for many of them.

Governor Calvo also stressed that Guam was prepared for any "eventuality".

"Guam is American soil".

The threat from North Korea came after President Donald Trump said that any threat to the USA would be "met with fire, fury and frankly, power, the likes of which the world has never seen before". "We are not just an American installation", he added.

Eddie Baza Calvo on Wednesday reassured the US territory's residents and pushed back after North Korea's latest saber-rattling.

On Tuesday, the Pacific Air Force announced that USA airmen have arrived on Guam to conduct bilateral missions with Japan and South Korea in the face of North Korean aggression.

US Says Putin Visit To Georgia's Abkhazia Region Was 'Inappropriate'
The Russia-Georgia war lasted five days and resulted in the deaths of 228 Georgian civilians, 170 soldiers and 14 police officers. Putin's visit comes as he appears to expand Russia's influence over eastern Europe.

North Korea also accused the US of devising a "preventive war" and said in another statement that any plans to execute this would be met with an "all-out war wiping out all the strongholds of enemies, including the USA mainland".

"My Homeland Security advisor, who is in communications with Homeland Security and Department of Defence notes that there is no change in threat level resulting from North Korea events".

Washington has warned it is ready to use force if needed to stop North Korea's ballistic missile and nuclear programs but that it prefers global diplomatic action, including sanctions.

Guam's Homeland Security Adviser George Charfauros urged calm and said defenses are in place for such threats.

North Korea says it has mastered a crucial technology needed to strike the USA with a nuclear missile.
