Guam vs North Korea: Why North Korea is targeting the tiny Pacific island of Guam – TomoNews

HAGATNA, GUAM — North Korea says it will soon be ready to launch missiles that will land near Guam, as tensions ramp up between Pyongyang and Washington.

Guam is located in the western Pacific Ocean, around 2,100 miles from North Korea. It is within the range of North Korea’s medium- and long-range missiles, according to the Guardian.

The 210-square-mile island is a U.S. territory. It has three U.S. military bases, including an air force base that hosts B52 bombers and fighter jets.

Some 6,000 U.S. troops are stationed on Guam, which has a total population of around 162,000 people.

Guam is protected by the U.S. Army’s THAAD[d] missile defense system, which is designed to shoot down ballistic missiles.

North Korea’s military is waiting for approval from Kim Jong Un to fire four rockets that will land in the sea about 17 miles from Guam, BBC News reported, citing North Korean state media.

Meanwhile, President Donald Trump has warned North Korea that any threat to the U.S. would be met with “fire and fury”.

  1. Everyone is like JUST SHOOT A MISSILE ALREADY! But a nuke vould very likely affect the capitol city of south korea. Or china.

  2. They are a fucking lie United States don't have any missiles to help Guam and North Korea knows it. Know Military strategy

  3. They're all retards… Using nukes is a really moronic thing to do. You're not only killing everyone in the area and more, but you're also ruining the earth. This shit is gonna drastically raise the heat up and stuff. I mean, the US had missiles that can do the exact same amount of damage, I bet that any other country could do that too if they tried hard enough. This is how you know someone is a moron, they don't even think. This will blow up in everyones face sometime soon and they'll have nothing to blame but themselves and their stupidity

  4. Donald Trump Asshole!
    Tell all Americans to leave the country!
    And Let Japan Bomb Donald Trump!
    New President!
    America will be free again!

    I not a American
    I am a Singaporean!

  5. If Mighty Kim Jong is reading this, I have suggestion for you oh great leader. I suggest you launch all missles into China immediately! Show them who the boss is! ☺️?✊?Get'em Kim Kim!

  6. North Korea government is going to commit suicide and get their people destroyed. The world is tired of pandering to them and so they should be dealt with. I say let South Korea, Japan, and China deal with it. Maybe US can provide air support and artillery support.

  7. I don't understand why people are saying the US is the aggressor all we did was respond when they threatened to NUKE OUR COUNTRY. They started it we are not the aggressors. What should we do when someone threatens to nuke us compliment them?

  8. If north korea do this, they're fucking stupider than we thought. Just step down kim, you're grossly outgunned and outmatched.
