Earlier today it was reported that North Korea is now making missile-ready nuclear weapons. This led to President Donald Trump making inflammatory remarks about the country and hinting at war. Now, a report has come in that they are threatening the U.S. Territory of Guam.

North Korea making missile-ready nukes

An analysis that was released today by American intelligence officials has concluded that North Korea has successfully produced a miniaturized nuclear warhead that it can fit inside missiles. This means that they have crossed a major threshold on the road to becoming a full-fledged nuclear power. This analysis was done last month by the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA).

This, of course, all comes following North Korea being handed new sanctions by the United Nations on Saturday.

Trump makes inflammatory comments

President Donald Trump responded to this latest North Korean development from Trump National Golf Club in New Jersey. Trump warned that North Korea and their leader Kim Jong-un would face “fire and fury and frankly power” if they threatened the United States.

Senator John McCain warned that Trump should “tread cautiously” with his comments. Fellow Senator Diane Feinstein said that the President's “bombastic” comments are not going to help the situation. Trump's comments were also in contrast to what Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said recently about opening a dialogue with Pyongyang.

North Korea threatens Guam

Following President Donald Trump's comments earlier in the day, a report came out that North Korea is “carefully examining” plans for a missile strike on Guam.

Guam has been an American territory since 1898 when it was relinquished by Spain following the Spanish-American War. The American military maintains two military bases -- Andersen Air Force Base and Naval Base Guam -- on the island.

A spokesman for the Korean People's Army said that the strike could be put in practice at any moment if Kim Jong-un makes a decision. This news was relayed through the state-run KCNA news agency. They are looking at launching medium-to-long range strategic ballistic rocket Hwasong-12 to contain U.S. military bases in the country.

They said that it would report the plan to the North's Supreme Command soon, but no date was given. North Korea also accused the U.S. of devising a “preventive war” and said that they should stop their “reckless military provocation.”
