North Korea won’t be able to intimidate the U.S. Air Force with its repeated threats against the U.S. and its territories.
On Wednesday, the official KCNA news agency said North Korea was “carefully examining the operational plan for making an enveloping fire at the areas around Guam” using its domestically made medium-to-long-range Hwasong-12 missiles.
The news agency reported a military statement issued on Tuesday, which probably came in response to US military drills in Guam.
The U.S. Air Force made it clear the hermit nation’s intimidation tactics would not work on them, with a tweet saying they’re ready to defend Guam and “#fighttonight.”

As others have pointed out in the last 12 hours, Guam also has a Terminal High Altitude Area Defense, or THAAD, system in place to intercept any incoming missiles.
Secretary of State Rex Tillerson arrived in Guam on Wednesday morning to reassure the people of Guam, and the United States, that they can “sleep well at night.”
