US President Donald Trump today delivered a fierce ultimatum to North Korea: if Kim Jong Un makes any more threats against the United States, he will face "fire and fury like the world has never seen." The warning came after the White House received an intelligence briefing suggesting with a high degree of credibility that North Korea has developed or is developing a miniaturized nuclear weapon that could be placed on a missile capable of reaching the US. It was further stated that it is not believed that the weapon has been tested.
The degree of credibility of the report is unknown.
North Korea’s military has announced that it is considering an operational plan to strike Guam with medium-to-long-range strategic ballistic missiles, state-run news agency KCNA said early Wednesday local time.
The threat comes just hours after US President Donald Trump issued his warning to the North Koreans.
Guam is a key to the US military’s front-line presence in the Pacific. Many American service personnel and their families are stationed on the island.
