Guam is armed with the U.S. Army's defense system known as Terminal High Altitude Area Defense, or THAAD, which can intercept missiles.

But there is always a slight worry in the back of her mind - could this be real?

Long used to living within the range of North Korea's artillery, people in the South have generally ignored its aggressiveness and series of nuclear and long-range missile tests. The air base was built in 1944, when the USA was preparing to send bombers to Japan during World War II.

"High-ranking American officials too should refrain from using excessive language", said the party's chairwoman, Choo Mi-ae, without mentioning Mr. Trump by name.

As tensions continue to ratchet up over North Korea's pursuit of a nuclear missile capable of striking the US, CNN has spoken to multiple officials with a detailed knowledge of how the US will determine if any North Korean missile launch poses a threat that requires the US military to shoot it down.

Deploying such weapons would break with decades of precedent, and the idea is contentious.

There are two major bases on Guam: Andersen Air Force Base in the north and Naval Base Guam in the south. Polls show more that only about a third of voters support such constitutional changes.
