North Korea revives Guam threat ahead of US-South Korea drills

Michigan Homecoming Queen Is Also Varsity Linebacker

The latest warnings from Pyongyang follow weeks of rising tensions, which promise to escalate further when the USA and South Korea joint naval exercises begin Monday.

North Korea is preparing to fire multiple short-range rockets around the opening of the Chinese Communist Party's twice-a-decade congress on 18 October, a South Korean daily newspaper reported Wednesday.

As the United States and South Korea prepared for next week's joint naval exercise, North Korean officials on Friday (Oct 13) renewed their threat to launch ballistic missiles near Guam, a U.S. territory in the western Pacific.

"The US military action hardens our determination that the US should be tamed with fire and lets us take our hand closer to the "trigger" for taking the toughest countermeasure", Kim added.

"They even gave us mathematical calculations that they believe prove that their missile can hit the west coast of the United States", Morozov said, according to RIA.

"Everyone on board is mission ready and I'm proud of being their commanding officer", USS Michigan Capt. Gustavo Gutierrez said.

The article ended with a familiar warning: that the U.S. would be exclusively responsible for "pushing the situation on the peninsula to the point of explosion". The president banged out a tweet Friday wishing the US Navy "happy birthday", while adding he has "no greater privilege than to serve" as commander-in-chief of the US military.

Friday the 13th Special: Finnair's Flight 666 Takes Final Flight to HEL
However, jesters and credulous folk can still get their kicks on another flight going from SIN to HEL - Singapore to Helsinki. However, today will be the last time Flight 666 flies to Hel, as the airline has chose to retire the flight number.

A Washington-based monitor of North Korea has also detected numerous landslides throughout the site, more than after any previous test.

The North Korean state agency issued this comment on the same day that South Korean and USA naval forces announced they will conduct high-profile joint maneuvers in waters off the Korean peninsula next week to counter the growing threat of Pyongyang.

The maneuvers will take place in a time of high tension in the peninsula following the interaction of warmongering, some say, between the regime led by Kim Jong-un and Trump, who plans to visit the region between the 2nd and 14th of November.

On North Korea, Kelly said Americans "should be concerned about a state that has developed a pretty good ICBM capability and is developing a pretty good nuclear re-entry vehicle". The North Korean government views them as a dress rehearsal for an invasion - even as the U.S. insists they are purely defensive in nature.

It remains unclear whether North Korea will lash out with a weapons test during the exercise, as it often has in the past.

"There's little chance that Ri and Kim have been dismissed or purged because they've been praised for major achievements recently", a staffer of a government-funded think tank here said.

By all indications, another North Korean provocation is inevitable - perhaps imminent.
