The North Korean missiles, designed to carry nuclear payloads, are set to contain the Pacific Region and specifically, Guam might be the next target. The recent weapon launched that cruised over Japan is only a prelude to what is coming, states the North Korean controlled media.

CNN reported that the missile fired from near the North Korean capital was led by Kim Jong-un himself and officials of the rogue nation declared it was a success. The NK administration added that their leader was glowing with satisfaction. The rocket, Hwasong-12 flew over Japan triggering tension among the allied countries.

The US Missile Defense Agency tested its system

The US Missile Defense System was earlier tested in preparation for the threat from North Korea. Last Wednesday, the missile interceptors successfully tested the efficiency of the medium range ballistic missiles off the coast of Hawaii.

Guam's Governor Ed Calvo said that the threat level alert on the American island territory did not change after the rocket flew past Japan. Calvo added that the citizens of Guam remain vigilant and ready in the event an attack does occur.

Guam's Homeland Security Adviser, George Charfauros said that based on North Korea's past threats, the joint military exercises of the US, South Korea, and its allies are stirring a hornet's nest in the rogue nation.

South Korean President Moon Jae-in and Prime Minister Shinzo Abe are now on firm ground in urging the North Korean leader to voluntarily come to the negotiating table and discuss steps in thwarting a nuclear catastrophe.

Pyongyang sees the military war-games as a North Korean Invasion

The NK leadership interprets the joint military exercises of the allied countries against Kim as preparations for an invasion; the administration showed its test of strength by firing its weapon from Kaesong, Pyongyang cruising past Japan and landing in the North Pacific waters harmlessly.

The U.S., South Korea, and its allies are pushing the new UN sanctions against North Korea. Japan's Abe and U.S. President Donald Trump had a phone conversation regarding the course of action against Kim's behavior but could not divulge it to media, reports CNN.

Military installations in Guam

The latest weapon passing over Japan is a display of Kim's disappointment with the allies that are holding military drills in the region.

With NK's recent launch, the next target in its crosshairs could be the U.S. Island territory of Guam.

There are three military installations in Guam. The US Naval Base located in Apra Harbor, Santa Rita, the Andersen Air Force Base, in Yigo, stations the fighter jets and B-1 bombers, and the Guam National Guard Readiness Center in Barrigada. The island is always at the forefront of North Korea's aim whenever a military conflict is in crisis.

South Korea says that the North fired 13 test missiles this year. Any new test is a concern for Washington and its allies as each trial brings NK's goal of enhancing its nuclear missile capability closer to fruition, the Associated Press reports.
