On Guam, The Mood Is Calm Despite Being In North Korea's Crosshairs

Mitch McConnell sparks fire and fury from Trump, Fox News

President Trump Fired Back at Mitch McConnell for Criticizing His 'Excessive Expectations'

The government hopes to complete deployment of the system in western Japan by Saturday morning, Kyodo News said, quoting defence ministry officials. If realized, it would be her first trip to Japan since she took power in July past year.

The Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) reported Thursday that by mid-August Pyongyang will have a plan to launch four intermediate-range missiles at the USA territory of Guam, where American military bases are located.

Abe and May last met in early July on the sidelines of the Group of 20 summit in Hamburg, Germany. Orders have been coming not only from the United States but also from Japan, TMZ said.

There is a full interagency communication process during a North Korean missile launch which would involve command centers from the Pentagon, the intelligence community and major U.S. military commands overseas. But pushing the envelope, or just threatening to do so, is what North Korea does best. "Some people [say], 'We just want our peace, our island groove that we've always have.' There are other people who are just sick and exhausted of the threats from North Korea because there sure have been many over the years".

"High-ranking American officials too should refrain from using excessive language", said the party's chairwoman, Choo Mi-ae, without mentioning Mr. Trump by name. The country, still technically at war with the North after the 1950-53 Korean War ended in a truce and not a peace treaty, has deployed the USA -built Patriot missile defense system, as well as the Terminal High Altitude Area Defence (THAAD) system.

Despite North Korea's looming missile threat, it hasn't rattled many residents of Guam. The United States has been threatened via a direct threat to Guam, which isn't just a host for Air Force and Navy bases.

Chinese government-backed scholars said Beijing is deeply concerned about the latest statements from Trump and North Korea.

Stocks slide on continued concern over tension between U.S. and North Korea
Investors bought bonds after the Labor Department said the consumer-price index increased 0.1% in July from the previous month. As a result, the yield on the benchmark ten-year note, which moves opposite of its price, is down by 2 basis points at 2.192%.


"Abe will want to spend his dwindling political capital on his long-held goal of constitutional revision", James L. Schoff, a senior fellow at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, wrote in an article posted on Thursday. His main rival, Fumio Kishida, a former foreign minister, appears to be betting that the public favors a more cautious approach to transforming the military.

Put simply, "in terms of defence we are joined at the hip".

"I feel it's different this time", said Yoon, who's been in the business since 2004. North Korea has always denied any wrongdoing.

In Japan, such comments have served as a reminder of the risks involved in confronting the North militarily.

"Two US Air Force B-1B Lancers assigned to the 37th Expeditionary Bomb Squadron, deployed from Ellsworth Air Force Base, South Dakota, flew from Andersen Air Force Base, Guam, for a 10-hour mission, flying in the vicinity of Kyushu, Japan, the East China Sea, and the Korean peninsula, August 7, 2017 (HST)", the report said. Washington and Seoul say the exercises are defensive in nature and crucial to maintaining a deterrent against North Korean aggression.

"There's growing concern", said Hideshi Takesada, a specialist on defense issues at the Institute of World Studies at Takushoku University, "about whether the U.S.is really thinking about the security of Japan and South Korea".
