Within hours of President Trump’s “fire and fury” threat towards the North Korean regime, dictator Kim Jong Un fired-back, revealing his secret plan to attack Guam within a moment’s notice should war break out on the Korean peninsula.
The attack plans were released through the state-run news agency, and outlines the communist nation’s strategy for a pre-emptive strike against the United States protectorate. Guam is approximately 2,000 miles southeast of North Korea, and contains seven major American military bases and thousands of service members.
Kim Jong Un’s spokesman slammed President Trump’s “fiery” comments, saying, “Sound dialogue is not possible with such a guy bereft of reason and only absolute force can work on him.”
According to the government official, North Korea would strike near the island with four, intermediate-range ballistic missiles.
“The Hwasong-12 rockets to be launched by the KPA [Korean People’s Army] will cross the sky above Shimani, Hiroshima and Koichi prefectures of Japan,” the statement said. “They will fly for 3,356.7 km for 1,065 seconds and hit the waters 30 to 40km away from Guam.”
US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson warned North Korea that any provocation in the Pacific Ocean would be met with the full force of the United States military, telling Kim Jong Un an attack on Guam would result in the "end of [the North Korean] regime and the destruction of its people."
