North Korea Threatens to attack Guam in Response to US Military Deployment

Michigan Homecoming Queen Is Also Varsity Linebacker

North Korea is once again threatening to launch missiles toward Guam, the New York Times reports.

The U.S. nuclear-powered submarine MI approaches a naval base in Busan, South Korea.

The US has threatened Pyongyang in its own ways, recently by flying two B-1B strategic bombers in Pyongyang's backyard and test-firing ground-attack missiles earlier this week before kicking off joint naval exercises with allies South Korea and Japan on Friday. But in August, President Donald Trump said that he would bring "fire and fury" and "totally destroy" the country if North Korea takes direct action.

North Korea renewed threats against the USA territory of Guam as South Korea and the United States prepare for a joint naval exercise next week.

It comes after the USA military flew two strategic bombers over the Korean Peninsula in a show of force late on Tuesday, Reuters reported.

Although they did not meet with Kim Jong-un, an interview with Ri-the former commanding general of the North Korean military-is considered the next-best opportunity.

The US territory is in the crosshairs this time over a joint naval exercise being held by the US and South Korea and scheduled to start Monday in the waters around South Korea.

El Nino caused record Carbon dioxide spike in 2015-16
It should be noted that emissions of carbon dioxide due to anthropogenic factors has remained at the same level. Carbon dioxide levels spiked during the powerful El Niño of 2015-16, but it wasn't quite clear why.

"The US military action hardens our determination that the US should be tamed with fire and lets us take our hand closer to the "trigger" for taking the toughest countermeasure," Kim added.

"If the U.S. imperialists and South Korean puppets ignite an aggressive nuclear war against us, it would only advance their own demise", the state-run Korea Central News Agency said in a Friday report.

The maneuvers will take place in a time of high tension in the peninsula following the interaction of warmongering, some say, between the regime led by Kim Jong-un and Trump, who plans to visit the region between the 2nd and 14th of November.

The maneuvers are meant to reinforce the "communications, interoperability and cooperation" between the two armies in the face of North Korea's weapons development.

North Korea has made similar threats against the United States for decades.

"Right now we think the threat is manageable", Kelly told reporters, via a live feed. He said there was already "great concern" about Americans living in Guam.
