The Pentagon said on Wednesday it was sending an advanced ballistic missile defense system to Guam, as U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel cited a "real and clear" danger from North Korea's declaration of nuclear strike against United States.

North Korea has singled out U.S. military bases in Guam, a U.S. territory in the Pacific, and Hawaii among its potential targets in threats in recent weeks that have put the Korean peninsula on edge and triggered a change in the U.S. defense posture and missile defense planning.

Shortly after Hagel spoke, the Pentagon said it was deploying a Terminal High Altitude Area Defense system (THAAD), which includes a truck-mounted launcher, interceptor missiles, an AN/TPY-2 tracking radar and an integrated fire control system. - Reuters
