Friday, April 5, 2013 - 10:03pm

For the most part, despite the threats, it's business as usual on Guam.  It's the closest American territory to North Korea.
The news director at KUAM, said they're not immune to the threats, but are confident the military will protect them.

 "There is that heightened sense of caution and people are still like what should we do but everybody's just kind of carrying on," said KUAM news director Sabrina Salas Matanane. 

There are two military bases on Guam: Andersen Air Force Base and Naval Base Guam.

About 120 Fort Bliss soldiers, as well as a "THAAD" or Terminal High Altitude Area Defense missile system are being deployed to Guam in an effort to intercept incoming enemy missiles, should North Korea decide to fire them.

"There is not much experience, as far as what is going through the mind of a 28 year old dictator, so I'm sure from the stand point of the strategist, the allies as well as the people of Guam, there's a concern about what he's doing and why he's doing it," said Guam Governor (R) Eddie Calvo.
