North Korea revives Guam threat ahead of US-South Korea drills

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.

The researcher, Kim Kwang Hak, did not elaborate but recalled North Korea's August warning that it could launch missiles near Guam, home to the USA air base from which the B-1B long-range bombers took off on Tuesday.

Two key officials in charge of North Korea's missile development were absent at recent major events, a mass rally in Pyongyang on Saturday and the Workers Party anniversary on Tuesday.

He said: "With his bellicose and insane statement at the United Nations, Trump, you can say, has lit the wick of a war against us". But North Korea's latest messaging indicates the regime may be ready to carry out what would be its most provocative missile test to date - firing four missiles over Japan and landing around 30 to 40 kilometers (18 to 25 miles) off the coast of the tiny island. But Trump has added to tensions in recent weeks by employing similarly tough talk, threatening to "totally destroy" or rain down "fire and fury" on North Korea.

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

On North Korea, Kelly said Americans "should be concerned about a state that has developed a pretty good ICBM capability and is developing a pretty good nuclear re-entry vehicle".

Kelly added that Americans should be concerned that the North is getting closer to achieving the ability to hit the mainland USA with its missiles. It said the copy shop did this on September 26 "ahead of the 72nd founding anniversary of the Workers' Party of Korea" that was celebrated on Tuesday, Oct. 10.

On Wednesday, Trump also characterized a diplomatic deal with North Korea brokered under former President Bill Clinton as a failure.

"As far as we understand, they intend to launch one more long-range missile in the near future". He said the North Korean threat is "manageable" for now.

By all indications, another North Korean provocation is inevitable - perhaps imminent.
