North Korea Mocks Trump Warning, Prepares To Fire Missiles Toward Guam

North Korea on Thursday dismissed President Trump’s warning that the U.S. would unleash “fire and fury” on the communist-run nation if Pyongyang continued to threaten America, saying Trump’s statement was a “load of nonsense.” North Korea said it was finalizing a plan to fire four missiles over Japan into waters around the tiny Pacific island of Guam, a U.S. territory of 163,000 people with a military base. South Korea’s military vowed a “stern and strong” response if North Korea launches the salvo, and U.S. Defense Secretary James Mattis said Pyongyang “should cease any consideration of actions that would lead to the end of its regime and the destruction of its people.”
