OK, what's tit for tat with the North Korea Guam threat:

President Trump seemed to draw a red line Tuesday when he warned North
Korea that continued threats against the United States would be met with
“fire and fury like the world has never seen.” The next day, North Korea
crossed it.

Or at least it announced, in unusually specific terms, how it could. The
country’s state-run Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) on Wednesday night
issued a statement that said the North is “seriously examining the plan for
an enveloping strike at Guam through simultaneous fire of four Hwasong-12
intermediate-range strategic ballistic rockets in order to interdict the
enemy forces on major military bases on Guam and to signal a crucial
warning to the U.S.” The statement, citing the North’s Strategic Rocket
Forces head General Kim Rak Gyom, added that the plan would be finished by
mid-August before going to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un for approval.

“Sound dialogue is not possible with such a guy bereft of reason and only
absolute force can work on him,” the general said, in apparent reference to
Trump, whose ultimatum he described as a “load of nonsense.”


I suppose firing 4 rockets to land in NK waters? Or sending 4 drones to
hover over NK? Shooting down the NK rockets would be risky, showing our
hand as to effective antimissile capabilities.
