In light of continuing threats from North Korea towards the United States, Guam and South Korea, Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis said Monday that if North Korea did fire a missile at the U.S. that, “it’s game on.” Fox News reported.

Fox also reported, ‘Speaking to reporters, Mattis added that the U.S. military would “take out” any North Korean missile it detects is heading for American soil, including Guam, a U.S. territory. Mattis added that if North Korea fires at the U.S., “it could escalate into war very quickly… yes, that’s called war, if they shoot at us.”‘

This comes the same day that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and SECDEF Mattis wrote an op-ed for the Wall Street Journal laying out the US plan to handle North Korea.

On August 8th North Korea says it will finalize plans to bomb Guam, a U.S. territory, by mid-August and some reports say the Dictator has already been briefed.

The back and forth between the US and North Korea, specifically US President Donald Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jung Un has been going on for weeks as each tries to get the last word in.
