Fear grips Guam residents as tensions rise between US and North Korea

The unpredictable and isolated North Korean leader on Tuesday had been briefed by his missile forces on a "plan for an enveloping fire at Guam", according to the North's official KCNA news agency.

But at the same time, Pyongyang said North Korea's military Tuesday presented Kim with plans to launch missiles into waters near Guam and "wring the windpipes of the Yankees".

The missile plans were previously announced. "He said that if the Yankees persist in their extremely risky reckless actions on the Korean peninsula and in its vicinity, testing the self-restraint of the DPRK, the latter will make an important decision as it already declared", KCNA said.

He rejected suggestions that Mr Trump and Mr Kim were as bad as each other when it came to the sabre-rattling playing out in the western Pacific. A miscalculation on either side could lead to military confrontation.

A University of Guam professor from IL told ABC News she is fearful of the rhetoric that is being used between North Korean and USA leaders. "That's called war, if they shoot at us". -South Korean military drills set to begin August 21, which the North claims are rehearsals for invasion. In addition to air drills with Japanese fighters, the bombers have also exercised with South Korean aircraft.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in said on Tuesday there would be no military action without Seoul's consent and his government would prevent war by all means.

This comment is a clear de-escalation of the nuclear situation developing in the Korean peninsula.

If necessary, "we'll take it out", Mattis said, suggesting the USA military would attempt to shoot it down with anti-missile interceptors on land and ships.

Moon said the North could create conditions for talks by stopping nuclear and missile tests.

The United States and South Korea remain technically at war with North Korea after the 1950-53 Korean conflict ended with a truce, not a peace treaty.

Gen. Joseph F. Dunford Jr., chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, arrived late Monday in Beijing to meet with Chinese military leaders.

Experts say the North could be looking for a concession, such as a cancellation of planned U.S. The United Nations Security Council voted unanimously to add new sanctions on North Korea, and President Donald Trump warned he would unleash "fire and fury" if Pyongyang continued its threats.

The North followed the May launch with two flight tests of its Hwasong-14 intercontinental ballistic missile last month.
