Guam's governor said there was no heightened threat but the government has issued a preparedness fact sheet, which covers what to do before, during and after a nuclear attack.

Pyongyang said the plan, which will be sent to leader Kim Jong Un for approval in the next week or so, would call for the missiles to fly over Japan and strike into the Pacific about 10 to 25 miles from Guam. "And even people who make cell phones, who have substantially more testing than THAAD does, sometimes have cell phones burn up", he said.

It is home to multiple U.S. Navy and Air Force bases.

"While it is extremely unlikely that Pyongyang would risk the assured annihilation of its revered leadership with a pre-emptive attack on US citizens, some residents of Guam are concerned. Hopefully Kim Jong-un will find another path!" he tweeted.

Experts and politicians have increasingly expressed concern about South Korea losing its voice in Korean Peninsula issues, a phenomenon that local media have dubbed the "Korea passing", which refers to South Korea getting sidelined by other key players in the North Korean nuclear standoff.

The Nikkei slumped to its lowest close for nearly three months yesterday, leading an Asia-wide sell-off sparked by President Donald Trump's apocalyptic warning over North Korea's weapons programme.

"It's just like setting off fireworks because most of their guided missiles just crash midway through flight", she said.

"I don't believe they have the capability to do so yet, and besides, why would they want to commit suicide by attacking a remote target like Guam?" he said.

Although he couldn't walk, he was able to wheel around the stage a little bit to show each section some love. The rapper broke his leg two weeks ago and underwent surgery for the injury, unbeknownst to fans.

"The United States will consider it an apparent attack if it lands within its territorial waters and, given the risks involved, will most likely try to shoot them down before they land anywhere close to Guam and its territorial sea", Lee told Reuters.

He says American weapons are locked and loaded, should North Korea act unwisely.

"We are very strongly in support of the United Nations process, which has and continues to put pressure on North Korea to stop acting in an irresponsible way, and we will continue strongly to support the United Nations process which will, I hope, help to de-escalate tensions".

Gov. Eddie Calvo said the US territory does not face a heightened threat and is "safe and sound".

What's much less certain, however, is whether the North's missiles can inflict serious damage once they reach Guam. North Korea asked, raising the possibility that it would pre-emptively strike Guam. "We need fewer fiery words and bombastic tweets ... and more effort to work with our global partners to expand missile defense and deterrence and put forward a strategy to roll back North Korea's nuclear and ballistic missile programs".

Before last year's launches, North Korea had never flight-tested a Musudan missile, although one was displayed during a 2010 military parade in Pyongyang.

Experts also note that an attack against the USA territory would nearly certainly provoke a massive backlash that would likely lead to the long-ruling regime's destruction.

But residents are increasingly anxious over Washington's escalating war of words with North Korea.
