— the very first time it had actually done so, and that missile may have been a test for Guam, a U.S. area in the Pacific.

prepared to provide a lethal reaction at a moment’s notice if our nation calls,”the U.S. Pacific Command (USPACOM)tweeted Thursday.(Twitter )”By forward-basing [the F-35], the most sophisticated airplane worldwide, here in the Pacific , we are allowing the [U.S. Marine Corps] to react quickly,”PACOM said.(Twitter)A South Korean official told CNN that the workout was suggested to “highly counter North Korea’s
repeated ballistic missile tests and advancement of nuclear weapons,” CNN reported.
