- They also followed threats by Pyongyang to "make the USA pay dearly" for helping spearhead the passage of new United Nations sanctions against the country in response to two recent missile tests. It cited a military statement made a day earlier, before Trump's remarks. The bombers were joined by Japanese and South Korean aircraft. "We are not just a military installation", he added.

Governor Eddie Baza Calvo said Wednesday there is no threat to Guam or to the Mariana Islands to the north. Guam's Homeland Security Advisor George Charfauros told CNN that he remains confident of the island's defenses.

A preventive war is aimed at heading off the possibility of an enemy's attack. The U.S. calculated last month that up to 60 nuclear weapons are now controlled by North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Senator John McCain, a Republican, said he wasn't sure Trump was ready to act, while Senator Ben Cardin, a Democrat from Maryland and ranking member on the Senate Foreign Relations committee, said Trump's language was counterproductive.

McCain tried to be measured with his reaction, telling KTAR it was "classic Trump". Dianne Feinstein said in a statement.

Even so, the competing threats and Trump's use of North Korea-style rhetoric - Pyongyang has long vowed to reduce Seoul to a "sea of fire" - raise already high animosity and heighten worries that a miscalculation might spark conflict between the rivals.

CNN has previously reported that USA intelligence estimates Pyongyang may have the capacity to deliver a nuclear weapon to the United States mainland by early next year and its missile program showed significant progress during two intercontinental ballistic missile tests in July.

However, there's debate within the intelligence community that Pyongyang has the required skill and technology.

Nearly two-thirds of those polled, 62%, say Kim Jong Un's isolated dictatorship poses a deep threat to the U.S., up from 48% who said the same in March and the highest that figure has been in polling dating back to 2000.

US stocks closed lower on Tuesday after a late afternoon selling spree as investors fled for safety after Trump's vow to respond aggressively to any North Korean threats.

Another was released soon after which broadened the threats leveled against the United States mainland.

The poll found that before those comments, Trump merited more negative than positive reviews for his handling of the situation with North Korea.

Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull says North Korea is reckless, provocative, risky and a threat to peace.

North Korea ramped up the rhetoric in a new statement issued Wednesday, sourced to a spokesman for the General Staff of the Korean People's Army (KPA), which said a "preemptive strike is no longer the monopoly of the U.S.". "And that includes a military option", he told MSNBC.

Experts had until last month said it would still take another two or three years for North Korea to develop a nuclear-tipped ICBM.

He added that the USA "routinely uses" Aegis-equipped warships around the island chain of the Marianas, of which Guam is the largest. The first being that both sides recognize how devastating another Korean War would be, the second being that the Kim regime, which values its survival above all else, knows it would lose.
