The sovereign US soil of Guam has specifically been threatened by North Korean absolute dictator Kim Jong-un. And not just any threat.
With the news breaking today that Kim’s military has been able to “miniaturize” a nuclear warhead to fit their missiles, it was also breaking news that Kim specified that the over 150,000 fellow Americans on Guam are in his nuclear cross hairs.
As reported by the everything political The Hill;
North Korea has successfully miniaturized a nuclear warhead to mount on a ballistic missile, according to a new report.
The assessment from the Defense Intelligence Agency, reported Tuesday by The Washington Post, puts Pyongyang closer than ever before to becoming a full-fledged nuclear power capable of striking the United States with a nuclear weapon, something it has often threatened to do.
Just hours after the miniaturization capabilities of the North Korean nuclear weapons was published, the Reuters news service reported;
North Korea said on Wednesday it is “carefully examining” a plan to strike the U.S. Pacific territory of Guam with missiles, just hours after U.S. President Donald Trump told the North that any threat to the United States would be met with “fire and fury”.
A spokesman for the Korean People’s Army, in a statement carried by the North’s state-run KCNA news agency, said the strike plan will be “put into practice in a multi-current and consecutive way any moment” once leader Kim Jong Un makes a decision.
In another statement citing a different military spokesman, North Korea also said it could carry out a pre-emptive operation if the United States showed signs of provocation.
