With tensions rising over North Korea’s continued threats to destroy the United States and its allies, President Donald Trump has taken steps to ensure the U.S. is more than prepared to handle an attack from the rogue regime.
A new report from the U.S. military indicates that the Air Force munitions stockpile in the U.S. territory of Guam recently received a 10 percent boost, according to The Daily Caller.
The 36th Wing Public Affairs revealed Wednesday that a total of 816,393 munitions assets were delivered to Guam’s Andersen Air Force Base between Aug. 21 and Sept. 30, which were valued at over $95 million.

“The inbound munitions ensure required assets are available in theater to support national objectives,” Maj. Erik Schmid, 36th Munitions Squadron commander, said in a news release.
Earlier this week in Seoul, South Korea, Pacific Air Forces commander Gen. Terrence O‘Shaughnessy said the U.S. military is ready to defend itself should the rogue regime continue to threaten the U.S. and its allies, according to a separate news release.
“The North Korean nuclear weapons and missile development program is truly a threat to us all,” O‘Shaughnessy said.
“While the United States will always seek peace over war, we remain poised to defend our ideals, our allies, and those who help preserve these international rules and norms.”
Aside from the U.S. already maintaining a dominant presence in the region with bomber jets, missile defense systems, and active duty troops, the increase in the munitions indicates Trump is again making it clear the U.S. military will not hesitate to use force against North Korea’s brutal dictator, Kim Jong Un.
The air assets located at Andersen Air Force Base send a clear message that the U.S. is no longer playing games.
Trump has promised to rain down “fire and fury” against North Korea and Pyongyang responded with similar threats, but it’s important to remember Trump didn’t start the fight.
Had liberals held former President Barack Obama accountable for eight years while he allowed North Korea to bolster its nuclear arsenal unimpeded, Trump more than likely wouldn’t be dealing with this mess.
While North Korea’s threats to the United States and its allies are disconcerting, many should rest assured the United States has the most advanced military defense capabilities in the world.
Trump has cautioned against a military or nuclear conflict, but has made it clear he will not hesitate to keep the American people safe.
