"OH NOES! A REPUBLICAN IS ACTING ALL "PARTY-OF-LINCOLN"-LIKE AND PRO-AMERICAN! WE CAN'T HAVE THAT!"
I hope the Guam thing turns out to be a big fat nothing and North Korean missiles can't aim due to being made out of Cold War Era Tinker-Toy Leftovers. I don't want to see the citizens of Guam....even the awfulness that is David J. Stewart....get nuked.
I try my best not to get alarmist. I know for a fact that all news outlets....of any political persuasion....even good ones....tend to emphasize "DOOM DOOM DOOM!" rather than try to be reassuring or put things in perspective.
For one thing; North Korea is dirt poor and all their weaponry is ancient and even the nukes are likely made in a slipshod fashion. Their soldiers are underfed and stunted in growth and their ally, China, merely tolerates them.
N. Korea, IMHO, is only a super-credible threat to South Korea and Japan. It's all a big "Scare Racket" like DAESH and the Ebola virus was. That stuff is only a real threat to The Mid-East (and occasionally Europe) and a few African countries (respectively).
If the real threat is China nuking us, well....why would they want to nuke the biggest customers for their crappy stuff?!! Nuking the U.S.A. would be like cutting off their foot.
And why nuke GUAM? Okay; I know there's a U.S. Military base there but....GUAM? It only makes sense if "Kim duJour" (as I call him) wanted to pull a "Pearl Harbor".
But again; Even if their nukes worked, I doubt the quality and aiming of said nukes would work.
Finally; We have a bunch of missile-defense systems. If a nuke headed our way, we could just "nuke" it while it's still in space.
