If missiles are headed to Guam, here is what could stop them

"Some people [say], 'We just want our peace, our island groove that we've always have.' There are other people who are just sick and exhausted of the threats from North Korea because there sure have been many over the years".

Walker did caution, however, that "people need to be prepared, in Alaska, for any disaster".

North Korea is threatening to launch four liquid-fuelled, intermediate-range ballistic missiles (IRBM) into the ocean near American territory Guam, dialing up the threat of nuclear war to levels not seen this side of the 21st century.

Sullivan visited South Korea with a delegation of US senators previous year, was deployed there as a Marine, and considers himself "kind of a Korean War history buff", he said in an interview.

Katherine Blakeley, a defense analyst at the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments, argued that the topline numbers were a little misleading, because Congress routinely adds funding each year for Israeli missile defense programs like Iron Dome and David's Sling.

At those speeds, a missile trying to chase and hit it from behind would have no chance during this part of the flight, called the "boost phase".

"This is not an issue you want to play around with", he said, noting that he'll advocate for more funding when the annual National Defense Authorization Act goes to the Senate floor for a vote in September.

Mariners fall to Angels
With one down in the ninth, Trout drew a walk from James Pazos , and Albert Pujols followed with a line drive single to center. It bounced off his glove and skidded into the outfield, allowing Trout to score to give the Angels a 6-5 lead.

The test came from the Pacific Spaceport Complex-Alaska on Kodiak Island. A US Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) system, one of which is based in at Andersen Air Force Base in Guam, could attempt to shoot the weapon down at this point.

"It's a very serious topic for sure, and it can be scary, but you know, if it's gonna happen, it's gonna happen", she says. "That's the key. Not blustery".

Shares of defense companies like Lockheed Martin, L3 Communications and Raytheon have surged to record highs in the wake of remarks President Donald Trump made Tuesday about meeting North Korea with "fire and fury" if the nation were to threaten the United States. "I think some failure is possible and perhaps expected, as they haven't yet been tested in fully operationally realistic conditions".

And he praised the administration's "diplomatic advancement last week at the (United Nations) with regard to these sanctions and getting everybody to vote for them, including Russian Federation and China".

Murkowski said she'd seek to do that through her position on the Defense Appropriations Subcommittee. Both Japan and the United States have ships equipped with SM-3 missiles designed for ballistic missile defense.

Reports suggest that Kim Jong-un does have some form of nuclear bomb, but there is disagreement over whether the country has managed to make warheads small enough to fit on its missiles.
