North Korea to Hold Off on Guam Missile Tests

•, Jason Ditz

Last week's reports of North Korea preparing to fire four missiles into the waters off the coast of Guam appear to have been a bit hasty, as today, North Korea's official news agency revealed that the "plan" was finalized, and sent to Kim Jong-un, and is on hold pending his approval.

Last week the reports gave the impression that the plans would be put into action more or less immediately on being completed, and a launch was expected mid-week this week. Official reports, however, say Kim hasn't decided on the plan at all, and wants to watch US actions longer before making a decision.

Now, instead of the missile fire being just the next in a series of tit-for-tat escalations in rhetoric and action between the two countries, the report suggests that the plan is something North Korea is holding in its back pocket "if the Yankees persist in their extremely dangerous reckless actions."
