The guns are locked and loaded, the F-16 fighter jets line up along the runway ready to scramble at a moments notice and the military, as their motto proudly proclaims, are Ready to fight tonight.
Yesterday, The Mail on Sunday became the first newspaper to visit both major military bases on Guam, the tiny Pacific island in the crosshairs of the growing crisis between North Korea and the US that could lead to the terrifying prospect of thermonuclear war.
In the latest round of a series of escalating and terrifying threats, North Korean tyrant Kim Jong Uns Stalinist regime has vowed to fire four ballistic missiles at the island.
As President Trump ratcheted up his bellicose rhetoric, promising fire and fury like the world has never seen, the 7,000 US military personnel on the island calmly prepared for battle.
We are constantly in a high state of readiness, said military spokesman Greg Kuntz. The systems are here, we are in place and we are ready to go.
The Mail on Sunday visited Naval Base Guam and Andersen Air Force Base on the US territory and vital strategic outpost, population 162,000, just 2,000 miles from the North Korean capital, Pyongyang, from where Jong Un has threatened to launch his weapons, possibly as early as next week, to create a historic enveloping fire around the tropical isle.....

They mis-spelled “America’s” bases
Yeah, Mad Kim does not know what he’s in for. Sad, since Pyongyang is a beautiful city.
And that’s just one of our thousands of bases all over the world. My late father helped take Okinawa and the Marine Corps sent him back there again and again.
Not thermonuclear war. Only the US has H-Bombs.
Never knew Trump owned air and naval bases in Guam.
With their degree of sophistication and past history of accuracy with missiles, we should be concerned they might miss the Pacific Ocean with one
May want to research that a bit. Likely any country that has mature nuke technology has fusion and fusion boosted bombs in the inventory.
Anderson AFB was a SAC base at one time I believe. They may still have a nuke storage area there. The navy did at the other end of the island.
If the Norks have an H-Bomb they haven’t tested it yet.
Once again... These aircraft have a purpose, they have a design, they are located there for a tactical reason. We know and are indeed on top of when Kim starts fueling these missiles and have plenty of time to scramble and hit them before they even leave the ground. If even one gets clear I will be very very surprised.
If all the planes take off at once, the island could become unbalanced, and capsize.
DPRK is performing some operations upon submarine fleet dockside, similar to the previous activity prior to testing of an SLBM.
Really? The Rooskies have none?
The commander in chief and I (retired USNR) own them all!
I did write, “mature” nuke technology, did I not?
Not worried about the Ruskies or the Chicoms. It’s the Norks that are the problem and it is doubtful they have an H-Bomb. The Brits, French, Isrialies and perhaps the Pakies and Indians all have H-bombs they aren’t in this fight either.
