FULL SCALE CONFLICT PREP: North Korea Moves Missile To East Coast, U.S. To Move Missile Defense To Guam, Send Warplanes to Philippines, and Troop Poised at North Korea Border
SKorea: North Korea moved missile to east coast
SEOUL, South Korea (AP) – North Korea has moved a missile with “considerable range” to its east coast, South Korea’s defense minister said Thursday, but he added that there are no signs that Pyongyang is preparing for a full-scale conflict.
U.S. to move MISSILE DEFENSE TO GUAM
The US is sending a missile shield to the Pacific island of Guam as North Korea threatens nuclear strikes.
The Pentagon said the shield would be ready within weeks, adding to warships that were sent to the area earlier.
The North had named Guam among a list of possible targets for attack that included Hawaii and the US mainland.
North Korea is not thought to have the technology to strike the US mainland with either a nuclear weapon or a ballistic missile, analysts say.

The United States says it stands “poised to respond” at the border of North and South Korea, where U.S. troops are on high alert.
“They have ratcheted up their bellicose, dangerous rhetoric and some of the actions they’ve taken over the last few weeks present a real and clear danger,” Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel said.

But just how confident can Pentagon officials be about whether Mr. Kim is a rational actor?
