Gaminde's remarks comes after North Korea announced earlier on Thursday that the nation has a detailed plan for a missile strike near Guam, where about 7,000 United States troops are stationed, using four intermediate-range ballistic rockets. The North has fired 18 missiles in 12 different test launches this year, provoking global condemnation and Trump tweetstorms.

President Donald Trump on Friday again delivered a warning to North Korea, tweeting that the US military is "locked and loaded" if the isolated rogue nation acts "unwisely," escalating an exchange of threats between the nuclear-armed nations.

Any new military conflict with North Korea would likely escalate quickly to the use of nuclear weapons, bringing catastrophic casualties not seen since World War Two and an untold economic impact worldwide, former US defence officials and experts say.

Pyongyang continued to escalate its confrontation with the USA on Wednesday when it announced that its military would have a plan in place by mid-August to launch an attack on waters near Guam.

That would likely open up a set of very major problems, including the possibility of both a very high-profile failure or a miscalculation of Washington's intentions and a more deadly pre-emptive strike by the North - which has missiles able to hit Tokyo and conventional weapons that could devastate South Korea's capital of Seoul.

Nearly simultaneously the opponents have declared their readiness to launch pre-emptive strikes on the military infrastructure of the national territories of each other.

The massive rally in Pyongyang came in the wake of the nuclear war rhetoric between the United States and North Korea.

The US island territory's Office of Civil Defence began distributing fact sheets, Preparing for an Imminent Missile Threat, on Friday, to help people prepare for an attack. And considering our home town was a World War II battlefield, this fear is generational.

Rep. David Cicilline (sihs-ihl-EE'-nee) of Rhode Island, a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, says that in light of President Donald Trump's "reckless words" threatening North Korea, the House should immediately take up legislation barring a pre-emptive nuclear strike without prior congressional authorization.

The US/North Korean nuclear standoff should draw attention to the fact that Guam's denizens are US citizens - but they are not allowed to vote for president, and are denied full representation in Congress.

Seon Myeong-yeon, 71, said he is "in favor of joint U.S".

These days it is often called America's "tip of the spear" and the "unsinkable aircraft carrier" with its military bases so close to north Asian flashpoints such as North Korea and the South China Sea.

The North American Aerospace Defense Command headquartered in Colorado makes the determination whether the missile poses a threat to the continental US.

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

The island was first populated about 4,000 years ago by the ancestors of the Chamorros, still the island's largest ethnic group.

Four million. That's how many Americans the US Census Bureau estimates live on five island territories of the United States.

"When President Trump says, 'Go ahead and do what you're gonna do on Guam and see what happens subsequently, ' it causes you to think, 'Well, would he say that if Anchorage [in Alaska] had that same threat?" "You've got Marines, you've got Navy, and you've got Air Force".

The KPA Strategic Force will finally complete the plan until mid August and report it to the commander-in-chief of the DPRK nuclear force and wait for his order.

The USAF has positioned six B-1 bombers at Guam.

The B-1s now deployed to Guam arrived last week during a routine deployment from Ellsworth Air Force Base in South Dakota. "There are several layers of ballistic missile defense".
