On Guam, The Mood Is Calm Despite Being In North Korea's Crosshairs

The escalating threats between the U.S. and North Korea have thrown the tiny U.S. territory of Guam into the headlines. North Korea this week threatened to create an "enveloping fire" around the strategically important Pacific island, located about 2,100 miles to its southeast.

But life here seems to go on as usual.

At Mosa's Joint, in Guam's capital Hagatna, Thursday happy hour lasts until 8 p.m. The place fills up fast with locals and military personnel, "kind of a little bit of everything," says Monique Genereux, who opened the bar and restaurant a few years ago.

Despite North Korea's threat against Guam this week, she says folks are keeping their cool.

"It's a very serious topic for sure, and it can be scary, but you know, if it's gonna happen, it's gonna happen," she says.
