Throughout the mission, which lasted about 10 hours, the aircrews practiced intercept and formation training, Pacific Air Forces officials said, enabling them to enhance their combined capabilities and tactical skills while also strengthening the long-standing military-to-military relationships in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region.

Guam, the USA island in the Pacific, has received over 132,000 visitors in July, breaking a 20-year record.

"If there's really a threat coming, then we'll be able to advise the community and ask support from the Philippine government regarding evacuation and other contingency measures", de Borja said.

He's concerned about claims that North Korea's Kim Jong Un plans to fire four missiles into the ocean less than 25 miles from Guam.

Abella's statements are in the wake of North Korea's threat to fire missiles near the US territory of Guam.

Its state-run news agency reported that North Korea's army "will complete its plan to hit Guam before mid-August".

German cops arrest two Chinese tourists for making Nazi salute outside Parliament
The Reichstag building was where the Third Reich met from 1933 - 1945 and was the location for many of Hitler's speeches. In 2011, police arrested a Canadian tourist for giving the hateful salute while taking pictures outside the Reichstag .

Meanwhile, Guam's homeland security adviser George Charfauros urged calm and said defences were in place.

"Evacuating our people here may be hard, but we just have to prepare for it", he said.

"I'm pro military buildup", said resident Gus Aflague, 60, whose grandfather and brother both joined the U.S. Navy. "Our best diplomats, strategists, negotiators, and problem solvers must be at or near the table of the National Security Council". "Some people think this is another one of the threats by North Korea and are not taking it very seriously", Analista said in a phone interview with DZMM on Thursday morning.

It's not the first time North Korea has threatened Guam, which is a crucial, strategic hub for US forces in the Pacific. On Aug. 6, the United Nations imposed sanctions on the reclusive state, which will slash the state's annual $3 billion export revenue by more than a third.

God Bless the people of Guam and God Bless The United States of America. An attack or threat to Guam is a threat or attack on the United States.
