North Korea has responded to US President Trump's threats of "fire and fury" by saying it's planning to fire four ballistic missiles at the island of Guam. The regime also mocked the President saying he was bereft of reason.
North Korea's actions are in direct response to a quote from Mr Trump, who said North Korea "will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen. My first order as President was to renovate and modernise our nuclear arsenal."
The New Zealand Air Force currently has an Orion plane and personnel training in Guam. They are due to leave in two days.
North Korea's plan is to launch four Hwasong-12 missiles that would pass over southern Japan, fly 3356 kilometres and land 30 to 40 kilometres from Guam.
Guam locals have calculated the missiles would take 15 minutes to reach them.
US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson defended his country's actions.
"What the President is doing is sending a strong message to North Korea in language that King Jong Un would understand, because he doesn't seem to understand diplomatic language."
Right now, the people of Guam are hoping this ramping up of rhetoric is just bluster from both sides.
