Guam: Isle paradise becomes a destination for ballistics
Guam, a secluded paradise on an isolated isle - a 210 square kilometre patch of Pacific Ocean country - is at first sight an unlikely place for a rocket fire. However, the isle, which has long been regarded as a holidaymaker's paradise with crystalline water, magnificent sets of sun, sparkling sandy shores and near-perfect temperature, has long been an important US army outskirts strategy.
That' s probably why North Korea, about 2,100 leagues to the north-west, chose it as the centre of a high-stakes chickens match with the United States. The North Korean Army said on Wednesday that it is considering operative action to attack near US Guam with its medium haul missile ballistics, the South Korean news agency Yonhap said.
On the other hand, Donald Trump threatens "fire and rage" on North Korea. North Korean News Agency said the bad states' army can deliver a powerful signal that it can neutralise the US Guam base containing atomic bombs and other important assetry. However, the rest of the globe is carefully observing how North Korea and the USA are set against the background of one of the most attractive isles in the worid, where around 163,000 inhabitants will be living from 2016.
US Forces in Guam include the extensive Andersen Air Force Base and Naval Base Guam. Its location in the Pacific is an important part of the US strategy for US defence plans and operations. Guam's inhabitants are regarded as US nationals, but Guam itself is a US state.
In 2010 Admiral Robert Willard said that Guam is "the largest western US territorial area we own. It'?s vital." Guam's on-line story says "The proud Chamorro civilization has been preserved to this date and has been shaped and enhanced over the ages by the myriad Pacific Islanders, Asians, Europeans, Mexicans and Americans who have traveled to, occupy and immigrate to Guam.
The archipelago of Mariana is part of Guam, which has a remarkable past in the records of US army service. Tinian Iceland, one of Guam's neighboring Mariana islands, was the starting point for the nuclear bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan at the end of the Second World War.
Easily procured by ship and ideal for aerial assaults against Japan, the Atomic Heritage Foundation said the U.S. soldier was desirable because of its central tactical importance. Mariana's closeness to Korea - and their story as a starting point for long-range bombing in Asia - is a likely cause for the interest of the DPRK in Guam.
