The U.S. military is sending a land-based missile defense system to Guam to defend against possible North Korean ballistic missile launches, according to a news release from the Department of Defense.
The statement said the missiles, a truck-mounted launcher, and radar and target acquisition systems will be deployed in the “coming weeks.”
The move follows weeks of bombastic threats against the United States and South Korea from the North’s young leader, Kim Jong Un, and his government.
