All the anguish about weapons of mass destruction and missiles was gone through in the 2 wars with Iraq. Iraq was going to turn Israel into a wasteland etc...etc...etc.....

Reality was completely different to the fears.

Yanks went through a similar thing with Russia and the Cuban crisis.

Lessons are that ya can't live peacefully with crazies running around. They have to be sorted out sooner or later (preferably in someone else's backyard of course).

MacArthur should have been let do what he wanted to do and what he got sacked for. Sort China out.

N Korea has nominated Guam as Guam is the eyes and ears of the US in the western pacific. Its also the US strategic coordination centre for US military operations. A Pacific Ocean equivalent of Diego Garcia in the Indian Ocean but more important. From a US security strategic perspective its probably more important than most US mainland cities.

The fate of the Guam population notwithstanding, N Korea is threatening US basic security.

Its not just a case of "lets frighten the Guam people a little and play ducks-and-drakes. Stir the US a little". The yanks will take it as a real and more imminent threat to their mainland security alright.

Have a look at Guam on google earth up in the NE coastal area at the US air base. Zoom in and look at the strips and nearby parking areas. There'll be a lot more there since that flyby was taken.

Those aircraft will be already fuelled and armed, capable of being scrambled instantly and be on their way within a couple of minutes notice. They'll be headed for N Korea before any missiles arrive. Whether they are recalled and whether those launched from the carriers are recalled will depend on where the missiles splash down.

As any US missiles can't be recalled, there'll have to be launch confirmation of some sort before sending them. The reality is that there'll be US aircraft already on 24 hour flying rotation as well at the moment (like the US 24 hour "fail-safe" B52 missions during the cold war).

The Don said they were locked and cocked and the N Koreans had better believe it.

To date, N Korea hasn't nominated a target and hit it with a missile. Just launched 'em and let them splash down without any intelligence regarding accuracy.

That being the case, one would hope that they are accurate enough not hit Guam Island or territorial waters "by mistake".

There are 2 exclusion zones around Guam being territorial waters and a economic exclusion zone (about 40 n miles maybe).

There have always been crazies running around but up until now, that list didnt include the leader of the US.

Hopefully, tRUMP's advisors will just keep him playing golf and leave the politics to them.
he is a nutter

Life's sometimes like that. Not much happens until two crazies meet up with each other.

The N Korean guy is a crazy.

I don't think Trump is a crazy but he sure is a buffoon. He hasn't yet graduated from "Crazy School" but he's working on it.

His manufacturing council chiefs have quit in protest, might be difficult making America great again without the support of industry.
