Guam shrugs off North Korea threat

Pupils sit on the World War II remnants of a torpedo at Asan Memorial Park on the island of Guam, a U.S. Pacific territory. With all the sabre-rattling of North Korea and the prospect of the waters off Guam becoming a new testing ground for its intermediate-range missiles, the people of this tiny U.S. Pacific territory seem to be taking things in their stride.

"Definitely, I know Guam is a pretty good target because it's important to the U.S. because of the military," she said. "I'm pretty confident that the U.S. will protect us. It makes me feel pretty good." U.S. forces on the island were not immediately available for comment. REUTERS/Erik De Castro

Tourists wait for a bus in the Tumon tourist district. In response to President Donald Trump\u0027s tough rhetoric, North Korea said on Thursday it was finalising plans to fire four intermediate-range missiles that would land 30-40 km (18-25 miles) from Guam. It was not the first time Guam has been put on notice and similar threats made since 2013 led to the U.S. military permanently deploying a Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) interceptor system on the tiny island.

Tourists pose as they rest in Tumon tourist district. Zhao Liang, a 35-year-old bank teller from Beijing, said she won't be cutting short her vacation over North Korea's latest missile threats. "It's just like setting off fireworks because most of their guided missiles just crash midway through flight," she said. "There's nothing to worry about at all and we'll just go on with our excursion and happily shop around." REUTERS/Erik De Castro

Guam Governor Eddie Calvo speaks during an interview with Reuters. Governor Eddie Calvo describes his island to those who don't know it as a "mini Hawaii" and puts the chances of a direct missile hit at a million-to-one because of the multi layers of Pacific defences, the last being those on Guam itself. Having experienced a Japanese invasion in World War Two and countless earthquakes and super-typhoons, there was no United States community better prepared than Guam "for any contingency", Calvo, dressed in a light blue tropical shirt, said in an interview at his office. "We are concerned about these threats but at the same time we also want to make sure people don't panic and go on with their lives. Enjoy the beaches," he said. REUTERS/Erik De Castro
