UPDATE 9/5/17 — On Sunday, September 2, North Korea detonated what they say is a hydrogen bomb suggesting it is getting closer to its goal of a nuclear grade inter-continental missile. The Korean Central News Agency reported: “The H-bomb, the explosive power of which is adjustable from tens kiloton to hundreds kiloton, is a multi-functional thermonuclear nuke with great destructive power which can be detonated even at high altitudes for super-powerful EMP (electromagnetic pulse) attack according to strategic goals.”

“All components of the H-bomb were 100 percent homemade and all the processes ranging from the production of weapons-grade nuclear materials to precision processing of components and their assembling were indigenously developed, thus enabling the country to produce powerful nuclear weapons as many as it wants,” the report said, adding that their hydrogen bomb is capable of devastating attacks on electrical grids.

This latest threat comes just 5 days after North Korea launched a missile over Japan, violating Japan’s air space and sending its citizens into a brief panic.

Wow! With Trump’s threat of “fire and fury,” Kim Jong-un, leader of North Korea, is now threatening to send missiles to Guam, which is an American territory. We understand that Kimmy is a loose cannon, and that diplomacy doesn’t seem to work on him. But Trump’s impulse control issues very well might lead us into a nuclear war. This is truly a battle of egomaniacs between two hot heads who have no business being in positions of power.

Here are some fun facts about Guam:

Guam is an island territory of the United States located in the western Pacific Ocean with a population of just over 160,000. It is situated about 3,400 kilometers south-east of Pyongyang, the capital of North Korea.

All Guamanians are American citizens by birth. Almost a third of the land is controlled by the US military, with an estimated 7,000 troops, mostly sailors and air force personnel, stationed on the island. Naval Base Guam is the home port for four nuclear-powered fast attack submarines and two submarine tenders.
