We told you the other day how threatening statements between North Korea and the U.S. were going back and forth and how North Korean officials had discussed firing missiles toward the U.S. Pacific territory of Guam. Earlier this week, U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said that if North Korea did that, it would be game on, adding, quote, you don't shoot at people in this world unless you want to bear the consequences.

Yesterday, North Korea's government-controlled media reported that Leader Kim Jong-un had discussed the Guam proposal with his military officers, but that he'd, quote, watch a little more the foolish and stupid conduct of the Yankees, indicating Kim had backed off the Guam threat for the time being.

At this point, both North Korea and the U.S. seem to be suggesting that it's up to the other side to determine what happens next.

It's not certain how or if the North will react to the upcoming military exercises between the U.S. and its ally South Korea. Those start next week.
