Guam preps citizens on how to survive a nuclear attack

In response to the threat, North Korea said a plan to fire four missiles at an area near the US Pacific territory of Guam would be ready in days.

Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham said there are two scenarios that could trigger war with North Korea.

August 8: Trump begins his slew of Twitter warning to North Korea, first tweeting: 'After many years of failure, countries are coming together to finally address the dangers posed by North Korea. Trump's bluster, however, stands in stark contrast to an ongoing back channel for negotiations between the United States and North Korea, which came to light Friday. American and South Korean officials said they would move forward with large-scale military exercises later this month that North Korea claims are a rehearsal for war. Hawaii is about 4,000 miles (6,500 km) to the east.

USA forces on the island were not immediately available for comment.

Guam was claimed by Spain in 1565 and became a US territory in 1898 during the Spanish-American War.

Former President Clinton squats as he examines the names of World War II war dead on a wall at the War in the Pacific National Historical Park on the island of Guam in 1998. In 1950, an act of Congress made it an unincorporated organized territory of the United States.

Although its stockpile of nuclear warheads has been decreasing since the 1960s, the USA inventory remains second only to Russia's. "About 162,000 people - mostly USA citizens - call the island home". While already taking up 30 per cent of the island, the American military has been seeking to increase its presence by relocating to Guam thousands of Marines who are now based in Okinawa, Japan.

Jacob Martinez, 29, a purchasing officer at a high-end hotel, said he was frustrated that Guam, an island smaller than Singapore and about 11,000 km away from the US mainland, might be dragged into a major conflict.

Officials haven't raised the U.S. territory's threat level even after Pyongyang laid out plans to strike near the island in the coming weeks, Guam Gov. Eddie Calvo said.

The island chain was formed along a subduction zone - where one tectonic plate is diving beneath another - around 60 million years ago. Now, about 160,000 people live on Guam.

In Guam's capital Hagatna, residents were unruffled by Pyongyang's rhetoric. Its chief languages are English and Chamorro. North Korea has been at odds with the United States since the US backed South Korea during the Korean War. An attack or threat on Guam is a threat or attack on the United States.
