Why Does North Korea Want To **** Guam

Picture of Why Does North Korea Want To Bomb Guam

Tensions between North Korea and the United States escalated on Aug. 8, after President Trump warned the country to stop threatening the U.S. (Victoria Walker,Danielle Kunitz/The Washington Post) North Korea said it was reviewing plans to strike U.S. military targets in Guam with medium-range ballistic missiles to create “enveloping fire,” according to state media. KCNA: "The nuclear war hysteria of the U.

S. authorities including Trump has reached an extremely reckless and rash phase for an actual war." — Jonathan Cheng (@JChengWSJ) August 8, 2017 The message came hours after President Trump warned North Korea that it will be “met with fire and fury and, frankly, power, the likes of which this world has never seen before” if the country does not stop threatening the United States. The threats follow a unanimous vote by the U.

N. Security Council to impose strict new sanctions on North Korea. North Korea’s state media outlets have often warned of strikes against the United States, but the threats are usually vague and do not typically include targets this specific, the Wall Street Journal said. On Wednesday, North Korea's military said it will complete a plan by mid-August to launch four mid-range ballistic missiles over Japan and drop them within 18 to 24 miles of Guam "in order to interdict the enemy forces on major military bases on Guam and to signal a crucial warning to the U.

S.," according to Yonap, a Korean news agency, which also said the military's top commander would need to finalize the plan. That Kim Jong Un is eyeing Guam, the sovereign U.S. territory with a strategic airfield and naval station, is no surprise to the island's 160,000 people. “Every time there is some saber rattling in this part of the world, Guam is always part of the occasion,” said Robert A.

Underwood, president of the University of Guam and a former delegate to the House of Representatives. “When you’re from Guam and live on Guam, it’s disconcerting, but not unusual,” Underwood told The Washington Post. The governor of Guam, Eddie Baza Calvo, said on Aug. 9 that there has been "no change in the threat level to Guam," after North Korea and President Trump traded threats. (Eddie Baza Calvo) The governor of Guam, Eddie Baza Calvo, posted an address early Wednesday morning on YouTube, telling island residents not to worry.

“I know we woke up to media reports of North Korea’s talk of revenge on the United States and this so-called newfound technology that allows them to target Guam,” the governor said. “I'm working with Homeland Security, the rear admiral and the United States to ensure our safety, and I want to reassure the people of Guam that currently there is no threat to our island or the Marianas.” Calvo said that “there is no change in the threat level resulting from North Korea events” and that “there are several levels of defense, all strategically placed to protect our island and our nation.

” Noting that “Guam is American soil” and that “an attack or threat on Guam is an attack or threat on the United States,” Calvo said he had reached out to the White House and that officials have assured him that the island “will be defended.” “With that said, I want to ensure that we are prepared for any eventuality,” Calvo said, adding that he is convening a group “to discuss the state of readiness of our military and our local first responders.

” “May God bless the people of Guam, and may God bless the United States of America,” he concluded. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Wednesday that Guam is in no more danger than any other place, adding that North Korea’s threats naming the island as a target did not deter him from making a scheduled refueling stop there on his return from Malaysia. Still, the threat of military strikes rankled some on the island.

“I’m a little worried, a little panicked. Is this really going to happen?” Cecil Chugrad, a 37-year-old bus driver for a tour bus company in Guam, told the Associated Press. “If it’s just me, I don’t mind, but I have to worry about my son. I feel like moving (out of Guam) now.” [‘I’m worried about moose, not missiles.’ Alaskans on North Korea threat: Shrug] At about 4,000 miles west of Hawaii, and 2,200 miles southeast of North Korea, Guam is on the edge of U.

S. power in the Pacific. Its combined Navy and Air Force installation, Joint Region Marianas, is the home port for nuclear submarines, a contingent of Special Operations forces and the launching point of flights for strategic bombers conducting rotational flights over Japanese territories and in the Korean Peninsula. Guam has been a strategic linchpin since Spain relinquished control of the island to the U.

S. Navy after the Spanish-American War in 1898. Japanese forces sped to the island after the bombing of Pearl Harbor in 1941 and captured it, subjecting its people to violence that some historians estimate to have killed 10 percent of its population. The island just celebrated its 73rd Liberation Day, commemorating the start of the U.S.-led effort to liberate Guam on July 10, 1944, Underwood said.

Now, the island paradise relies on tourism and military activity to buoy its economy, which is marked by high unemployment. There have been recent efforts to grant Guam more control over its government, including support from the United Nations. Guamanians cannot cast ballots for president in U.S. elections, but they do vote for party delegates in primaries and have a nonvoting delegate to the U.S.

House of Representatives. Robert E. Kelly, an expert on North Korea at Pusan National University in South Korea, said that the North Koreans always respond to threats with the “most outlandish rhetoric” but that Pyongyang also knows that attacking the United States would be suicidal. “They’re not apocalyptic ideologues like Osama bin Laden, willing to risk everything on some suicide gamble,” Kelly said.

A confidential assessment by the Defense Intelligence Agency says that North Korea has already developed a miniaturized nuclear weapon that can fit on top of an ICBM. (The Washington Post) North Korea has warned of strikes against the United States before. Last August, the country’s Foreign Ministry said that all U.S. military bases in the Pacific would “face ruin in the face of all-out and substantial attack,” according to the AP.

This followed a 2013 warning that Kim Jong Un had ordered his military to prepare plans to attack U.S. bases in Guam, Hawaii, South Korea and the continental United States. [North Korea now making missile-ready nuclear weapons, U.S. analysts say] Guam’s growing strategic importance is due to its sovereign status, Underwood said. The United States must get clearance from ally nations like South Korea and Japan to build up its military hardware in the event of defense escalations, which can be a lengthy process.

But Guam has been used to project power with immediacy, Underwood said. The island is also home to a terminal high-altitude area defense battery, which targets ballistic missiles. The presence of THAAD systems in South Korea has drawn consternation from Pyongyang and Beijing, which view it as an escalation. A pair of B-1B Lancer bombers arrived in Guam from South Dakota this week to fly with South Korean and Japanese counterparts.

That mission follows an operation over the Korean Peninsula in late July in which the warplanes were scrambled from Guam as a response to North Korea’s second test of an intercontinental ballistic missile that experts said could be capable of reaching as far as New York. An Air Force B-1B Lancer bomber prepares to take off Tuesday for a 10-hour mission from Andersen Air Force Base on Guam.

(U.S. Air Force) It was unclear Tuesday whether the Pentagon had elevated the readiness posture of its Guam-based fleet of ships and planes after the threat from North Korea. “We always maintain a high state of readiness and have the capabilities to counter any threat, to include those from North Korea,” Johnny Michael, a spokesman for Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, said in a statement to The Post.

The numerous installations on Guam host about 6,000 troops, a number that is growing as the United States seeks to rebalance its forces in the Pacific amid the Chinese military's growing reach and North Korea’s increasingly sophisticated nuclear program. In 2014, then-Deputy Defense Secretary Bob Work said 60 percent of the Navy and 60 percent of combat air forces would be located in the region.

[Test firing a ballistic missile in California was routine. Growing tension with North Korea is not.] “Guam has always been a central part of our plans — certainly a central part of the Navy’s plans but now a central part of the entire Department of Defense’s plans,” he said at the time. That leaves an island of U.S. citizens watching the news closely as posturing escalates on both sides of the Pacific.

Del. Madeleine Z. Bordallo, the island's representative in the U.S. Congress, said in a statement Wednesday that “North Korea's most recent threat to target Guam is dangerous and it further heightens tensions in our region.” Underwood pointed out that “most of the time the overheated rhetoric comes from North Korea. This time it’s coming from the U.S. side.” Guamanians share two common sentiments about their role in foreign policy, Underwood said.

Media reports focus on the importance of military installations, making locals feel as if they are bit players on a large stage, he said. Others would rather shed the crosshairs. “People say ‘I hate being a target. We’re the tip of the spear. Why can’t we be another part of the spear?’ ” Underwood said. But Guam also has a proud tradition of supplying U.S. troops, with a disproportionate number of recruits coming from there and American Samoa, Underwood said.

Eighteen Guamanian troops have been killed in Iraq and Afghanistan, pointing to an outsize sacrifice for a territory with a population smaller than that of Eugene, Ore. “We have more skin and more land in the game,” Underwood said.

Twitter users wasted no time poking fun at the North Korean regime by suggesting possible explanations behind Un's decision to attack Austin under the hashtag #whyaustin.

'The humorous post was accompanied by a photo of North Korea's plump leader with the caption: ‘BBQ sold pout?! It's barely noon.' Blanchard followed up by writing: 'All we Austinites really expect is an incredible quality of life...and not to be vaporized.' One popular tongue-in-cheek theory was that Kim Jong got upset over being denied an invitation to the annual music and multimedia festival South by Southwest that took place in Austin earlier this month.

Bert shows you what to do in nuclear attack On a more serious note, Jeremi Suri, Mack Brown Distinguished Chair for Leadership in Global Affairs at the University of Texas, speculated that North Korea's animosity toward the popular college town could stem from the fact that it is home to a Samsung semiconductor enterprise with strong ties to the regime's arch-enemy, South Korea.

 'Austin has a lot of international cache. It's seen as a center of music, as a center of exciting technology, and they want to show they can threaten that,' Suri told KVUE. 'They want to show that they can do something to get attention.'But Roger Baker, vice president of East Asian Analysis at Stratfor, offered a more logical explanation for Un's unexpected choice.  'What you are really seeing is an older map from when George W.

Bush was president,' Baker told KXAN. 'Hitting Texas would have been a symbolic target.'The missile trajectories shown in the photographs released by NK News are not entirely clear, and could also be pointing to the U.S. Army installation at Fort Hood located 70 miles north of Austin.Scroll down for videos War bunker: North Korean leader Kim Jong-un presides over an urgent operation meeting with his generals after the country put its rocket units on standby to attack U.

The order from leader Kim Jong Un came after the U.S. flew two stealth bombers over the Korean peninsula.In an escalation of long-standing tensions with Seoul, a provocative statement was released by North Korea's government, ruling party and other organizations by the country's official news agency. The statement read: 'From this time on, the North-South relations will be entering the state of war and all issues raised between the North and the South will be handled accordingly.

'North Korea has been threatening to attack South Korea and US military bases almost on a daily basis since the beginning of March.But few believe the country well engage in full-scale war. The two Koreas have been in a technical state of war because their 1950-53 conflict ended under an armistice and not a peace treaty - however Pyongyang declared the truce no longer valid in March.

The U.S. said the stealth bomber practice runs were designed to show its ability to conduct long-range, precision strikes 'quickly and at will.

' Seoul, which has been carrying out routine military drills with America, says it is closely monitoring movements in North Korea.Many Western experts believe the aggressive posturing is part of a grand master plan to force Washington to the negotiating table and put pressure the new president in Seoul to change policy on North Korea.

The country's official KCNA news agency reported that Kim Jong Un has signed off on orders to train sights on bases in South Korea and the Pacific following a meeting with top generals.

The Pentagon condemned North Korea's rhetoric, saying it was designed to 'raise tensions and intimidate others'.KIM JONG'S MASTER PLAN:  WHY NORTH KOREA'S AGGRESSIVE POSTURING IS JUST A ROUSE TO BRING WASHINGTON TO THE NEGOTIATING TABLE Call my bluff? North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un appears to be trying to force Washington to the negotiating table Across North Korea, soldiers are gearing up for battle and shrouding their jeeps and vans with camouflage netting.

Newly painted signboards and posters call for 'death to the U.S. imperialists' and urge the people to fight with 'arms, not words.' But even as North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is issuing midnight battle cries to his generals to ready their rockets, he and his million-man army know full well that a successful missile strike on U.S. targets would be suicide for the outnumbered, out-powered North Korean regime.

Despite the hastening drumbeat of warfare, none of the key players in the region wants or expects another Korean War - not even the North Koreans. But by seemingly bringing the region to the very brink of conflict with threats and provocations, Pyongyang is aiming to draw attention to the tenuousness of the armistice designed to maintain peace on the Korean Peninsula, a truce North Korea recently announced it would no longer honor as it warned that war could break out at any time.

It's all part of a grand master plan to force Washington to the negotiating table, pressure the new president in Seoul to change policy on North Korea, and build unity at home - without triggering a full-blown war if all goes well. In July, it will be 60 years since North Korea and China signed an armistice with the U.S. and the United Nations to bring an end to three years of brutal, bloody Cold War fighting that cost millions of lives.

The designated 'Demilitarized Zone' has evolved into the most heavily guarded border in the world. It was never intended to be a permanent border. But six decades later, North and South remain divided, with Pyongyang feeling abandoned by the South Koreans in the quest for reunification and threatened by the Americans. In that time, South Korea has blossomed from a poor, agrarian nation of peasants into the world's 15th largest economy while North Korea is struggling to find a way out of a Cold War chasm that has left it with a per capita income on par with sub-Saharan Africa.

The Chinese troops who fought alongside the North Koreans have long since left. But 28,500 American troops are still stationed in South Korea and 50,000 more are in nearby Japan. For weeks, the U.S. and South Korea have been showing off their military might with a series of joint exercises that Pyongyang sees as a rehearsal for invasion. For weeks, the U.

S. and South Korea have been showing off their military might with a series of joint exercises that Pyongyang sees as a rehearsal for invasion On Thursday, the U.S. military confirmed that those drills included two nuclear-capable B-2 stealth bombers that can unload the U.S. Air Force's largest conventional bomb - a 30,000-pound super bunker buster - powerful enough to destroy North Korea's web of underground military tunnels.

It was a provocative play by Washington, a flexing of military muscle perhaps aimed not only at Pyongyang but at Beijing as well. In Pyongyang, Kim Jong Un reacted swiftly, calling an emergency meeting of army generals and ordering them to be prepared to strike if the U.S. provocations continue. A photo distributed by North Korea's official Korean Central News Agency showed Kim in a military operations room with maps detailing a 'strike plan' behind him in a very public show of supposedly sensitive military strategy.

North Korea cites the U.S. military threat as a key reason behind its need to build nuclear weapons, and has poured a huge chunk of its small national budget into defense, science and technology. In December, scientists launched a satellite into space on the back of a long-range rocket using technology that could easily be converted for missiles; in February, they tested an underground nuclear device as part of a mission to build a bomb they can load on a missile capable of reaching the U.

S. North Koreans gather at a rally at Kim Il Sung Square in downtown Pyongyang, North Korea on Friday, March 28, 2013 However, what North Korea really wants is legitimacy in the eyes of the U.S. - and a peace treaty. Pyongyang wants U.S. troops off Korean soil, and the bombs and rockets are more of an expensive, dangerous safety blanket than real firepower.

They are the only real playing card North Korea has left, and the bait they hope will bring the Americans to the negotiating table. Narushige Michishita, director of the Security and International Studies Program at Japan's National Graduate Institute for Policy Studies, isn't convinced North Korea is capable of attacking Guam, Hawaii or the U.S. mainland. He says Pyongyang hasn't successfully tested an intercontinental ballistic missile.

But its medium-range Rodong missiles, with a range of about 800 miles (1,300 kilometers), are 'operational and credible' and could reach U.S. bases in Japan, he says. More likely than such a strike, however, is a smaller-scale incident, perhaps off the Koreas' western coast, that would not provoke the Americans to unleash their considerable firepower. For years, the waters off the west coast have been a battleground for naval skirmishes between the two Koreas because the North has never recognized the maritime border drawn unilaterally by the U.

N. As threatening as Kim's call to arms may sound, its main target audience may be the masses at home in North Korea. For months, the masterminds of North Korean propaganda have pinpointed this year's milestone Korean War anniversary as a prime time to play up Kim's military credibility as well as to push for a peace treaty. By creating the impression that a U.S. attack is imminent, the regime can foster a sense of national unity and encourage the people to rally around their new leader.

Inside Pyongyang, much of the military rhetoric feels like theatrics. It's not unusual to see people toting rifles in North Korea, where soldiers and checkpoints are a fixture in the heavily militarized society. But more often than not in downtown Pyongyang, the rifle stashed in a rucksack is a prop and the 'soldier' is a dancer, one of the many performers rehearsing for a Korean War-themed extravaganza set to debut later this year.

More than 100,000 soldiers, students and ordinary workers were summoned Friday to Kim Il Sung Square in downtown Pyongyang to pump their fists in support of North Korea's commander in chief. But elsewhere, it was business as usual at restaurants and shops, and farms and factories, where the workers have heard it all before. 'Tensions rise almost every year around the time the U.S.-South Korean drills take place, but as soon as those drills end, things go back to normal and people put those tensions behind them quite quickly,' said Sung Hyun-sang, the South Korean president of a clothing maker operating in the North Korean border town of Kaesong.

'I think and hope that this time won't be different.' And in a telling sign that even the North Koreans don't expect war, the national airline, Air Koryo, is adding flights to its spring lineup and preparing to host the scores of tourists they expect to flock to Pyongyang despite the threats issuing forth from the Supreme Command. War or no war, it seems Pyongyang remains open for business.
