North Korea Threatens to Strike US Military in Guam

North Korea Threatens to Strike US Military in Guam Read Transcript


During his working vacation in New Jersey,

President Trump lashed out at North Korea--

a war of words with the rogue nation.

North Korea best not make any more threats

to the United States.

They will be met with fire and fury

like the world has never seen.

ERIK ROSALES: That statement came

as the North promises fierce retaliation for the new UN

Security Council sanctions.

Kim Jong Un is contemplating medium and long-range ballistic

missile strikes on Guam--

the North Korean strongman threatening an enveloping fire

on the US territory, home to several key military

installations.

The governor of Guam issuing this urgent message overnight,

attempting to reassure constituents--

I'm working with Homeland Security, the Rear Admiral,

and the United States to ensure our safety.

ERIK ROSALES: But some nuclear experts

doubt the north is actually capable of striking Guam.

Still, world leaders reacting swiftly--

the Japanese and South Korean government

standing with the United States, saying all options

remain on the table--

the escalating tensions made all the

more alarming amid new revelations about North Korea's

nuclear capability.

CBN News did confirm with US intelligence sources

that North Korea can now produce a miniaturized nuclear warhead,

one that can fit on top of an intercontinental ballistic

missile.

Harry Kazianis heads up the defense studies

at the Center for National Interest.

He says North Korea has been preparing

for this moment for years.

Its military might be old, but they have 1.1 million troops,

7.7 million in reserve, chemical weapons, biological weapons.

They have 10,000 artillery tubes pointed at Seoul.

The damage they could do would be catastrophic.

The news coming just days after North Korea successfully

test fires a long-range ballistic missile capable

of hitting the US mainland.

US intelligence believe that Kim Jong Un has as many as 60

of them.

Many argue that the US should have

done something about North Korea's nuclear program years

ago.

Erik Rosales, CBN News, Washington.
