North Korea said it is 'carefully examining' a plan to strike the U.S. Pacific territory of Guam with missiles, just hours after President Donald Trump told the country that any threat to the U.S. would be met with 'fire and fury.'
A spokesman for the Korean People's Army, in a statement carried by the North's state-run KCNA news agency, said Wednesday the strike plan will be 'put into practice in a multi-current and consecutive way any moment' once leader Kim Jong Un makes a decision.
Guam, which is known as the 'Tip of the Spear', is home to both Andersen Air Force Base and Naval Base Guam
Guam, which is roughly 2,128 miles from North Korea, is home to both Andersen Air Force Base and Naval Base Guam housing thousands of American service members and their families. Roughly 28 percent of the island is occupied by the U.S. military.
In another statement citing a different military spokesman, North Korea also said it could carry out a pre-emptive operation if the U.S. showed signs of provocation.
Earlier Pyongyang said it was ready to give Washington a 'severe lesson' with its strategic nuclear force in response to any U.S. military action.
The statement from the North comes after Trump told the country's leader Tuesday that additional threats of violence against the U.S. 'will be met with fire and the fury like the world has never seen.'
Former President Barack Obama's aide Dan Pfeiffer went after Trump's warning to North Korea on Tuesday. Pfeiffer tweeted, 'Don't gloss over the fact that Trump threatened what can only be interpreted as a nuclear attack on North Korea if Kim Jong Un taunts him.'
Obama let the depth of the crisis grow through his two terms. Bush took the coward's way out as well. Now the threat may be as stated. Do you wait for them to strike America, Japan or South Korea first and try to play catch up or do you take the head off of the snake? The time for action may be upon us. The traitorous democrats are not American enough to defend their country. Playing pretend won't make the monster Kim disappear. If force must be used, it must be overwhelming. If not, millions of Koreans and Japanese may suffer for it.
