Guam threat: Governor Salvo expresses confidence in Trump

Pompeo said the rhetoric from Trump was geared at sending a message to North Korea and letting the isolated nation know that the U.S. policy of "strategic patience" had come to an end.

Officials in Guam say they do not plan to evacuate the island in the event of a possible missile attack from North Korea. According to the paper, use military warmongers are running scared by Pyongyang's growing military might.

Defense Secretary Gen. James Mattis also spoke out on Monday regarding the U.S.'s on-going tensions with the North.

After being derided for excessive rhetoric by his domestic critics, U.S. President Donald Trump and his equally-tough generals appear to have prevailed, for the moment, in the war of words with North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un.

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.

Responding to the tests, President Trump warned Pyongyang of "fire and fury like the world has never seen", while the North responded with the Guam threat.

The remarks from Pyongyang would appear to bring into play the large-scale military exercises held every year by South Korea and the United States that are expected to kick off later this month.

In any outbreak of conflict, we could be an easy target for North Korean missiles.

Guam officials are taking the latest missive from North Korea as a sign that the rhetoric is calming down.

That prompted Trump to reassure citizens of the U.S. territory that the American military was prepared to ensure their safety.

The Ministry of Unification's spokesman Baik Tae-hyun said in a press briefing that the meeting may be part of North Korea's regular gathering of ambassadors.

Mr. Kim "said that he wants to advise the US, which is driving the situation on the Korean peninsula into the touch-and-go situation, running helter-skelter, to take into full account gains and losses with clear head whether the prevailing situation is more unfavorable for any party", according to KCNA.

President Trump on Wednesday said North Korea's leader Kim Jong Un made a good decision after North Korea backed off a threat to fire missiles toward Guam.

While Mattis stressed that his statement should not be read as a promise of war, the military would defend the country, and for them, "that's war".

He went on to urge the crowd that if they "don't want to get caught, deer-in-the-headlights", when missiles start flying that they should "call in North Korea immediately".

Homeland Security in Guam said on Friday that a public warning system in place that would alert residents of the island of 160,000 people that a missile is incoming.
