Japan to extend missile shield after N. Korea threatens Guam

Trump Won't Stop Tweeting Us Closer to a Nuclear War

Earlier Friday, Trump said on Twitter that U.S. "If Kim Jong Un said he would hit Anchorage, would he say, go ahead hit Anchorage and see what happens?", Underwood said.

In addition to the "locked and loaded" tweet, Trump also retweeted one from the U.S. Pacific Command with pictures of fighter jets and the statement that "Lancer #bombers on Guam stand ready to fulfill USFK's #FightTonight mission if called upon to do so".

A day after Trump said North Korea would face "fire and fury" if it kept threatening the U.S., a warning was issued by North Korea where it threatened to strike the U.S. Pacific territory of Guam. The unusually precise statement said the four missiles would be launched simultaneously and overfly the Japanese prefectures of Shimane, Hiroshima and Kochi.

"China opposes both nuclear proliferation and war in the Korean Peninsula". It suggested building an emergency kit and having a family plan, and in the event of an attack, lying flat and avoiding looking directly at the blast.

It comes after Trump threatened North Korea with "fire and fury" as well as tweeting that the U.S. was "locked and loaded".

"Maybe it wasn't tough enough", he said. No doubt, the country's nuclear missile development has progressed at a faster pace than anticipated by the US government.

Instead he promised to respond to the next provocation from North Korea with what many assumed to mean nuclear force.

"I will tell you this, North Korea better get their act together or they're going to be in trouble like few nations have ever been in trouble in this world, okay?" he added.

Trump had called on Beijing in the past to exert its control over North Korea, its trading partner, on several instances.

Relations between North Korea and the United States have begun to unsettle even further in recent weeks and it is feared that the situation might escalate even more so.

"They've been doing this to our country for a long time, for many years", Trump continued, speaking of North Korea and their threats of nuclear warfare against the United States. At the same time, Beijing will respond if the USA and South Korea strike first and try to overthrow the North Korean regime.

But in a pointed warning that China may not back its old Korean War ally, a state-run newspaper said Friday that Beijing should not intervene on Pyongyang's side if it triggered a conflict.

"Guam is located in a key position in the Pacific for the US military".

"While standing by 24 hours in preparation for a launch, we are calling on our residents to be on alert in case we issue emergency information", Makoto Ebuchi added.
