Guam issues guidelines in case of a nuclear attack

"North Korea has successfully produced a miniaturized nuclear warhead that can fit inside its missiles, crossing a key threshold on the path to becoming a full-fledged nuclear power, USA intelligence officials have concluded in a confidential assessment".

But Bruce Bennett, a senior defense analyst at the Rand Corporation, told CNN it would ultimately be U.S. President Donald Trump's decision whether to test their missile defenses.

Similar threats in 2013 led Guam's U.S. Congresswoman Madeleine Z. Bordallo to advocate for the THAAD system, she said in a statement Wednesday. "I feel like moving (out of Guam) now".

A former Central Intelligence Agency employee has warned Mr Trump's "unpredictability" may lead to World War 3 if he launched a pre-emptive strike against North Korea.

"Don't worry about a thing", Trump said in response.

If a person is caught outside during an attack, people are told: "Do not look at the flash or fireball - It can blind you" and "lie flat on the ground and cover your head". I think this is very, very, very serious...

Calvo said the island was used to being a target of such threats ever since Washington stationed troops and military hardware there.

Guam has issued guidelines for residents on the island in case of a nuclear attack launched by North Korea.

Continuing to take aim at President Donald Trump's remarks, the statement read, "Of late, the president and other riffraff of the US are trumpeting about "military option" against the DPRK, claiming that they 'will not rule out a war.' Meanwhile, they introduce huge strategic nuclear assets into the Korean peninsula, staging reckless nuclear war games and rendering the regional situation extremely tense".

Most of the North Korea's weapons have landed in the Sea of Japan.

Governor Eddie Calvo made the remarks on Thursday after Pyongyang released a detailed plan to fire four intermediate-range missiles towards the remote Pacific island by mid-August. The President would be told and consulted, but if the threat is imminent, the USA military has the right to self-defense - and could make the decision. "We are with you 1,000 per cent", the media reported on Saturday. "It's a propaganda, that's how I feel", he said but added that the military offered an extra reassurance.

Life on the streets of the North Korean capital, Pyongyang, also remained calm.

One of these systems, he said, is THAAD, the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense system, which is created to shoot down short, medium and intermediate ballistic missiles.

If the missiles landed within 40 kilometers (25 miles) of Guam, as threatened, according to UN law, they would fall within the United States' exclusive economic zone although not their territorial waters.
