North Korean despot Kim Jong-un has gathered trusted advisers in Pyongyang to consider the implications of an inter-continental ballistic missile (ICBM) attack against the US.
The conflict has the potential to spark Word War 3 with military heavyweights Russia and China forced to pick sides.
Earlier today Russia Today was reporting: “Pyongyang said that it has been working on a plan to launch a medium-range ballistic missile at a US airbase in Guam.
“This comes after US bombers flew over the Korean Peninsula with Korean and Japanese warplanes.”
Military strategists were expecting Kim Jong-un’s response to the US and Japan flying deadly bombers near North Korean territory in a brazen show of military strength last night.
More US bombers are set to arrive at the peninsula today.

He urged calm and said he did not expect an imminent attack.
Mr Tillerson said: “Americans should sleep well at night … Nothing that I have seen and nothing that I know of would indicate that the situation has dramatically changed in the last 24 hours.”
