Guam governor says North Korea's talk of revenge is no threat

A nuclear missile test launch in North Korea

ABC News reported that some members of President Donald Trump's inner circle were caught by surprise by his threat that North Korea would "face fire and fury like the world has never seen" if they continue with their nuclear weapon program. Tests of North Korea's own missile suggest that now, the island is within the range of Pyongyang.

Guam is about 2,100 miles (3,380 kilometers) southeast of Pyongyang and 3,800 miles (6,115 kilometers) west of Honolulu in the Pacific Ocean. The ministers also urged North Korea to comply fully with UN Security Council resolutions.

Local nuclear proliferation expert Dinshaw Mistry, a University of Cincinnati professor of political science and Asian studies, said he believes the USA was caught off guard.

The commander of the North Korean army made more threats Wednesday night, saing they will have a plan to fire on Guam by the middle of this month.

Many across the island say they feel assured and protected by the military. The most important USA air base west of Hawaii, Andersen is the only one in the Western Pacific that can permanently base US heavy strategic bombers, including B-1B, B-2, and B-52 bombers.

"I'm pro military buildup", said resident Gus Aflague, 60, whose grandfather and brother both joined the U.S. Navy. Guam is also home to a detachment of U.S. Navy SEALs and other naval special warfare units. The U.S. District Court of Guam legalized it in 2015, before 14 states. Their location in a USA territory means its military is just hours from potential flashpoints in the western Pacific. The U.S. took control of Guam in 1898, when Spanish authorities surrendered to the U.S. Navy.

Andersen Air Force Base is one of these key bases.

In August past year, the North's Foreign Ministry warned that all US military bases in the Pacific including Guam would "face ruin in the face of all-out and substantial attack" by the North's military. These bombers, which North Korea refers to as "the air pirates of Guam," are based on a rotational basis at Andersen and frequently overfly the Korean peninsula when the North conducts missile and nuclear tests.
