"How we train is how we fight, and the more we interface with our allies, the better prepared we are to fight tonight", a 37th EBS B-1 pilot said.

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.

"Our Consulate General has Contingency Plans which are regularly updated", Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) Spokesperson Rob Bolivar said in a statement.

The American military presence on Guam consists of two bases - Andersen Air Force Base in the north and Naval Base Guam in the south - which are home to 7,000 US troops.

"I urge the government to have the safety of our OFWs as paramount among our concerns.Contingency plans and response measures must be ready", he said. "It shares false information supposedly coming from the Navy regarding North Korea", Calvo stated on his Facebook page. Chamorros are the indigenous people of Guam.

Still, analysts said the market seemed to be a bit skeptical that the North Korea situation would grow into a major crisis, noting that the losses were still not that deep. An attack or threat to Guam is a threat or attack on the United States.
