From , 3:04 pm on 11 August 2017

An academic says Guam is being used as a pawn in the confrontation between the North Korea and the United States.

North Korea says it will develop a plan by mid-August to launch four intermediate range missiles towards Guam, targeting waters near the US territory. 

The US President Donald Trump says he'll respond to any threat from North Korea with fire and fury.

Adjunct professor of Chamorro studies at Guam University Michael Lujan Bevacqua told Koroi Hawkins both North Korea and the US are exploiting Guam's status as an unincorporated territory for their posturing.
