Mattis says war would quickly follow any strike from North Korea

US President Donald Trump speaks during a security briefing

"Me and my family feel safe, and I know that Guam and the United States got a big military base, and with our military people they will defend our country", said local RayJohn Lizama.

"President Trump reiterated to President Macron the United States' commitment to stop the North Korean nuclear menace", it adds.

Given the historical record of regime change the USA has engaged in around the world since World War II, this is not an unfounded fear.

On Saturday North Korea's Minju Joson newspaper promised an army "capable of fighting any war the United States wants". "And it's growing every day, with every missile test, with the ... nuclear tests".

Some analysts say it is all an act, meant to make Kim more popular among his own people while intimidating those in the United States who talk of regime change in North Korea.

"But we are closer to war than we were a decade ago". "And, as Dr. [Henry] Kissinger made clear in a great op-ed this weekend, this has been a problem that we have procrastinated on for a long period of time, and now it's coming to a head".

"But the goal of capable, ready forces is to preserve peace and prevent war", he said, calling for concerted pressure on North Korea by the United States, its allies and "responsible" nations.

The Jammu and Kashmir director general of police, SPVaid, confirmed the death on Twitter, and congratulated his men. He claimed that one AK 47 rifle, 03 magazines and 54 rounds were seized from the killed militant.

Even if the United States is prepared for war, its officials are trying to stay away from the possibility.

Guam has a $5 billion economy, which is fueled by tourism and the USA military.

Asked how anxious people should be, Pompeo told Fox News Sunday: "Nothing imminent".

The tension increased in the region when the communist country conducted nuclear bomb tests past year and intercontinental ballistic missile tests last July which was condemned by different countries including the United States.

Mr Kim insisted North Korea would carry out missile launches if the "Yankees persist in their extremely unsafe reckless actions on the Korean Peninsula and its vicinity" and urged the U.S. to "think reasonably and judge properly", the report added.

But Mr Pompeo denied that a threat of a nuclear conflict was imminent, saying: "I've heard folks talking about being on the cusp of a nuclear war. No intelligence that would indicate we are in that place today". "All over the world they are talking about Guam, and they are talking about you".

"I am certain the United States will respond to the current situation calmly and responsibly in a stance that is equal to ours", he said.
