Asan, Guam— Chil­dren sit on a World War Ii–era tor­pedo at Asan Beach Park on Au­gust 11. The Amer­i­can ter­ri­tory is caught up in the in­creas­ingly hos­tile rhetoric be­tween the U.S. and North Korea as Wash­ing­ton re­acted to the news that Py­ongyang has pro­duced a nu­clear weapon that can fit into a long-range mis­sile. After the North’s lat­est mis­sile test, Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump threat­ened Py­ongyang with “fire and fury,” and that coun­try re­sponded with its own threat: to strike near Guam, home to thou­sands of U.S. troops. The is­land’s gov­er­nor told Gua­ma­ni­ans not to worry, but one res­i­dent told the As­so­ci­ated Press, “I’m... a lit­tle pan­icked.”
