North Korea Threatens to Strike US Military in Guam, Trump Vows ‘Fire and Fury’

North Korea’s military is “examining the operational plan” to strike areas around the U.S. territory of Guam with medium-to-long-range strategic ballistic missiles, state-run news said early Wednesday morning.

Specifically, the statement mentioned a potential strike on Andersen Air Force Base designed “to send a serious warning signal to the U.S.” The base is one of two on the Pacific island, which are the closest bases on U.S. soil to North Korea and represent the westernmost tip of the country’s military might.

North Korea’s comments were published after U.S. President Donald Trump warned Pyongyang that if it continued to threaten the U.S., it would “face fire and fury like the world has never seen.”
