President Trump’s warning against continued military provocations from the North Korean government has fallen on deaf ears. According to U.S. press sources, the country’s state media is reporting to the Korean nation that their plan to fire four missiles towards Guam will be prepared for approval from Kim Jong Un within days.
North Korea has persisted in posturing about its technical capabilities by displaying missile launches that Washington fears may eventually prove capable of reaching U.S. soil for years. While Guam is situated closer towards the Asian Pacific than the U.S. mainland, it is by political standards, U.S. territory. North Korea has already upset the past several U.S. Presidents over its dramatic responses to the joint exercises the U.S. and South Korea execute off of its waters, as allies Japan and Taiwan sit dangerously close to the rogue state.
Kim Jong Un is allegedly planning launches that will send intermediate-range missiles over Japan so that they may come 18 to 25 miles within range of Guam’s coast. Such a missile would close a distance of around 1,850 miles.
