After the US buzzed North Korea with B-1B jets on a practice bombing run, Pyongyang has responded by saying that Kim Jong Un may finally decide to launch missiles towards the US territory of Guam. According to CNN's Will Ripley, North Korean media said that the "US should be tamed with fire," and that tensions now bring its "hand closer to the 'trigger'" on carrying out the launch. While the US operates a powerful missile defense system in Guam, and the US Navy has ships that can defend against missiles, it remains unclear whether it would risk shooting down missiles bound for the ocean.
