Trump ramps up Guam assurances over North Korea threat

Trump told reporters at his New Jersey golf club Friday that he will make the call.

Guam's Office of Civil Defense started passing out flyers on Friday to help residents prepare for a missile attack from North Korea.

He also had a call with President Xi Jinping of China, North Korea's main economic partner, who said all sides should avoid rhetoric or action that would worsen tensions on the Korean Peninsula, according to state broadcaster China Central Television.

"It looks like a handsome place", Trump added.

The exercises were scheduled well before tensions began to rise over Trump's increasingly fiery rhetoric and North Korea's announcement of the missile plan, which if carried out would be its most provocative launch yet.

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

He added, "We will see what happens".

"Do not look at the flash or fireball - it can blind you", said the fact sheet posted on social media Thursday.

The North Korean Strategic Force of the Korean People's Army (KPA) is "seriously examining the plan for an enveloping strike at Guam through simultaneous fire of four Hwasong-12 intermediate-range strategic ballistic rockets in order to interdict the enemy forces on major military bases on Guam and to signal a crucial warning to the U.S.", the statement said.

North Korea has said that its military was drawing up plans for approval by Kim Jong-un for the launch in mid-August of a salvo of four missiles that would splash down within 25 miles of Guam.

In South Korea, a recently deployed THAAD missile defense system would not be able to intercept a launch toward Guam but could quickly detect the launch on its radar. No one at Japan's defence ministry was available to comment on Saturday.

"I just wanted to pay my respects, and we are with you 1,000 percent. We're going to do a great job so don't worry about a thing".

According to the retired colonel-general, modern surveillance technologies allow the United States to know "the exact location of all missile systems and nuclear production facilities" possessed by Pyongyang. "If a family member, co-worker or neighbor is troubled, take time to talk to them, pray for them and remind them of the providence of our Lord", it says.

That prompted a defiant Pyongyang to threaten a missile attack on Guam, a tiny USA territory in the Pacific that is home to major U.S. air and naval facilities.

Striking a similar tone with his top diplomat, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Trump said the U.S. will "always" consider negotiations with the reclusive regime. Guam houses a major USA military base, which may be one of the reasons the area around Guam is their target.

The Japanese government has chose to deploy its Patriot missile interceptors in the wake of North Korea's missile attack threats on Guam Island.
