Japan Responds to North Korea’s Threat to Guam, the US

North Korea responded to President Trump’s "fire and fury" comment with a specific plan threatening the U.S. territory of Guam.

North Korea’s military says it will be ready by the middle of the month to launch four missiles over Japan and in the waters off the U.S. territory of Guam.

Japan, one of America’s closest Asian allies, said any attack on U.S. citizens would threaten its own existence and they will shoot down North Korean missiles flying over Japanese airspace.

The country hosts not only the people of Guam, but also more than 6,000 American Navy Personnel on a Navy and Air Force base.

Guam’s governor estimates the chances of a strike at "one million to one."

Homeland security officials have still told residents to have a plan in place just in case.
