Guam is telling its residents what to do if North Korea launches a missile attack at the USA territory, but is also calling for calm. "The KPA Strategic Force is now carefully examining the operational plan for making an enveloping fire at the areas around Guam with medium-to-long-range strategic ballistic rocket Hwasong-12 in order to contain the US major military bases on Guam". "I wanted to call you and say hello". We are with you 1,000 per cent.

"I'm glad you're holding the helm sir", Calvo said.
Mr Trump agrees, saying "They should have had me in years ago. frankly you could have said that for the last three presidents".
