Gold Hits 2-Month Peak As North Korea Repeats Guam Threat

12 August 2017, 02:06 | Devin Moran

Korea calls for Pyongyang to stop harsh words, respond to talks offer

Chung Eui-yong, chief of the Presidential National Security Office and chairman of the National Security Council standing committee sits tight-lipped in a weekly meeting of top presidential aides held at the presidential office Cheong Wa Dae on Aug

"If the US and South Korea carry out strikes and try to overthrow the North Korean regime and change the political pattern of the Korean peninsula, China will prevent them from doing so". "They are here to protect the islands, just in case something happens".

Air Force B-1B Lancer Bombers arrived on the island of Guam Friday morning.

Trump's rhetoric toward North Korea has sparked criticism. President William McKinley ordered Guam to be ruled by the U.S. Navy.

The U.S. set up the Naval Station in Guam in 1899, designating the whole island as a base.

There's a sense of patriotism among those who cite the island's history of Guam residents serving in the USA military.

During the Vietnam War, the Air Force sent 155 B-52 bombers to Andersen to hit targets in Southeast Asia. Guam was also a refueling and transfer spot for people heading to Southeast Asia, and many refugees fleeing Saigon were evacuated through Guam.

Guamanians have served in all major USA wars since World War II and see military service as a source of pride.

Resident Isaac Camacho, 19, says he feels Guam's relationship with the USA mainland is "a little misunderstood on their part".




"All the people are rising up across the country to retaliate against the U.S. thousands of times", the daily said. Chamorros are the indigenous people of Guam.

"There is a lot of uncertainty about what America has got in mind, and therefore I think it was a bit unwise of Mr Turnbull to commit Australia so plainly", Prof White said. Seoul is 2,000 miles (3,200 kilometers) to the northwest, Tokyo is 1,500 miles (2,400 kilometers) north and Taipei is 1,700 miles (2,700 kilometers) west.

Despite North Korea's threats to prepare plans within days that would surround Guam with "enveloping fire", fears of a potential attack have not deterred tourists from visiting Guam, he said.

Because Guam is a US territory, the USA military may launch forces from there without worrying about upsetting a host nation that may object to USA actions.

Trump told reporters from the clubhouse of his Bedminster, New Jersey golf course that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un "has been very threatening beyond a normal state, and as I said they will be met with fire and fury and frankly power, the likes of which this world has never seen before".

In addition to the USA military bases, Guam is also equipped with the sophisticated THAAD weapons system which is capable of destroying intermediate-range missiles in the final phase of flight.
