The pranksters said: “The Missiles sold to North Korea are of a very poor quality.
“They will not be able to reach Guam.
The plan comes after Donald Trump publicly asked whether Ukraine had supplied rocket technology to North Korea.
Guam governor Eddie Calvo, who appears very pleased to be speaking to the world leader, is shocked to learn about the fictional missile sales.
Mr Calvo said: “Oh my… That is unfortunate and again we are hopeful now that maybe the flow of any type of armaments to North Korea will be halted.”
After hearing the faulty missiles pose no threat to his island paradise the relieved governor greets the “good news”.
He said: “I’m very glad you’ve been able to be very clear that the technology and capability of these missiles are insufficient for Guam.
“And again, thank you.”
Mr Calvo went on to congratulate the pranksters for getting money from the North Korean regime which they told him had been invested in a sweet factory in Russia.
He said: “I want to thank you so much and please convey my thanks to the president and I’m hopeful you made a lot of money out of North Korea for these defective missiles, so thank you so much.”
The missile hoax comes after President Trump revealed plans to develop a new nuclear warhead for Trident submarines and to loosen constraints on the use of nuclear weapons to “deter” Russia, China and North Korea, according to a former official.
Special assistant to Barack Obama on arms control and nonproliferation, Jon Wolfsthal, said a review recommends a new version of the Trident D5 submarine-launched missile to “deter” Russia, China and North Korea from using tactical warheads in a conflict.
The new policy is much more aggressive than that of Obama, who sought to reduce the role of nuclear weapons in US defence.
Mr Wolfsthal said: “What I’ve been told by the people who wrote the thing was what they were trying to do was to send a clear deterrent message to Russians, the North Koreans and the Chinese.
“And there is pretty good, moderate but strong language that makes clear that any attempt by Russia or North Korea to use nuclear weapons would result in a massive consequence for them and I think that’s actually moderate, centrist and probably very much needed.”
The Nuclear Policy Review (NPR) is the first in eight years and is expected to be published after Trump’s State of Union speech at the end of January.
