"He goes around threatening Guam and threatening the United States".

Moon believes the best way to solve the North Korean nuclear crisis is engagement of the sort that two past liberal leaders used to win historic summits with Pyongyang.

North Korea says it will "keep closely watching the speech and behavior of the U.S".

That base and U.S. Naval Base Guam are home to about 13,000 American military personnel.

To that end, USA Today reports, the US territory's homeland security department has released a "fact sheet" so that residents of the small island will know what to do in the unlikely event of a nuclear-missile attack.

Earlier in the day Republican Senator John McCain responded to Trump's "fire and fury" warning, saying "great leaders" don't threaten foes unless they're ready to act - and he's not certain President Donald Trump is ready to act against North Korea.

Because Guam is a US territory, the USA military may launch forces from there without worrying about upsetting a host nation that may object to US actions.

With liberals back in charge in South Korea, Seoul is making peace offerings to its archrivals, but the North isn't biting.

The North's missile and nuclear programs have been shrouded in secrecy for years, but recent tests have shed more light on their capabilities. He invited the North to participate in next year's Winter Olympics, which South Korea is hosting. "Hopefully Kim Jong Un will find another path!"

South Korean shares ended at an 11-week nadir today as anxious offshore investors sold stocks following President Donald Trump's fresh warning that North Korea not strike Guam or United States allies.

With North Korea threatening to send a salvo of ballistic missiles close to a US military hub in the Pacific, pressure could grow for Washington to put its multibillion-dollar missile defence system into use and shoot them out of the air before they can pose a real threat.

The rockets are supposed to land in the sea about 30 km (17 miles) from Guam, if the plan is approved by Kim Jong-un.

Cicilline said Trump "has made a risky situation even worse by recklessly asserting that the United States is "locked and loaded" to bring "fire and fury" to North Korea".

Simmering North Korea tensions knock back Wall Street
Shares of Macy's tumbled 10.2% and Kohl's was down 6% as the companies continued to report a drop in quarterly same-store sales. Trump's comments on Tuesday ended the Dow's nine-day streak of record closes.

"Sound dialogue is not possible with such a guy bereft of reason and only absolute force can work on him", it added.

Governor Eddie Calvo describes his island to those who don't know it as a "mini Hawaii" and puts the chances of a direct missile hit at a million-to-one because of the multi layers of Pacific defenses, the last being those on Guam itself.

"They're now telegraphing their punch, which means they don't want to have any misunderstandings". "I think they probably have 60 missiles with nuclear weapons on them", he says.

"North Korea's provocative actions, including this time, are obviously provocative to the region including Japan as well as to the security of the worldwide community", Yoshihide Suga, Japan's chief government spokesman, told reporters.

Padilla made the statement after North Korean Strategic Force of the Korean People's Army said on Thursday that it was "seriously examining a plan" to launch a missile in Guam. Previously Japan's position was only to shoot down missiles headed for its own territory.

Meanwhile, American and South Korean officials said they would move forward with large-scale military exercises later this month that North Korea claims are a rehearsal for war. North Korea's threats to strike around Guam pose a serious challenge, a spokesman at South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff told reporters on Thursday.
