North Korea Plans To Fire Multiple Missiles Into Waters Around Guam
North Korea stressed Thursday that President Donald Trump will only learn through a show of force.
Trump is “such a guy bereft of reason and only absolute force can work on him,” North Korean state media reported.
The North Korean military 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.,” according to the Korean Central News Agency.
The military will report its plan to Kim Jong Un in mid-August and await his order. The missiles would reportedly splash down within a matter of miles of Guam.
North Korea warned Wednesday that it was developing a plan for strikes on Guam, home to Andersen Air Force Base and a collection of conventional and nuclear-capable bombers.
The initial threat was a response to recent U.S. missile tests and bomber overflights.
The latest threats may be a response to Trump’s strong warning Tuesday.
“North Korea best not make any more threats to the United States,” Trump declared before the White House press pool. “They will be met with the fire and fury like the world has never seen. He has been very threatening beyond a normal state, and as I said, they will be met with the fire and fury and, frankly, power the likes of which this world has never seen before.”
