UPDATED 8:00 PM EDT (SEE BOTTOM) — US satellites see North Korean mobile missile launcher movement, intermediate ballistic missile launch prep possible.
Intermediate range missiles are the exact type that North Korea threatened last week, to fire at the US Territory of GUAM.
In addition, North Korean leader Kim Jung Un has apparently "disappeared" and has not been seen in public for almost two weeks. The last time North Korea launched a missile, Kim Jung Un was also out-of-sight for two weeks prior.
U.S. Secretary of Defense James Mattis said this afternoon, "If North Korea launches a missile at the United States, it could mean war."
As of the publication of this story at 4:39 PM EDT on Monday, August 14, it is already 5:09 AM on Tuesday in North Korea.
In the past, when testing missiles, North Korea usually fires them in the morning. SO within the next few hours (4) we may find ourselves at war.
This is a developing story, check back for updates.
UPDATE 4:57 PM EDT —
Units being moved appear to be related to HS-12 system. This is the same system DPRK threatened to use against Guam
UPDATE 5:04 PM EDT–
U.S. DEFENSE SECRETARY Mattis saying any attempt to launch towards Guam, will be "taken out" and the situation could very quickly turn into WAR.
He also told reporters "Yes that means for a lot of young troops they’re going to be in a wartime situation"
UPDATE 5:23 PM EDT —
Two (2) E-4B's and Two (2) E-6B airborne military command centers for the United States have been launched and are flying at this time. CALL SIGNS "BACON22" and "VANDAL22"
This is what an E-4B looks like:
The Boeing E-4 Advanced Airborne Command Post, with the project name "Nightwatch", is a strategic command and control military aircraft operated by the United States Air Force (USAF). The E-4 series was specially modified from the Boeing 747-200B. The E-4 serves as a survivable mobile command post for the National Command Authority, namely the President of the United States, the Secretary of Defense, and successors. The four E-4Bs are operated by the 1st Airborne Command and Control Squadron of the 595th Command and Control Group located at Offutt Air Force Base, near Omaha, Nebraska. An E-4B is denoted a "National Airborne Operations Center" when in action.
This is what an E-6B Look Like:
The Boeing E-6 Mercury (formerly E-6 Hermes) is an airborne command post and communications relay based on the Boeing 707-320. The original E-6A manufactured by Boeing's defense division entered service with the United States Navy in July 1989, replacing the EC-130Q. It conveyed instructions from the National Command Authority to fleet ballistic missile submarines (see communication with submarines), a mission known as TACAMO(TAke Charge And Move Out). The E-6B model deployed in October 1998 kept this role, but added further command post capabilities and the ability to remotely control Minuteman ICBMs using the Airborne Launch Control System. The E-6B replaced Air Force EC-135Cs in the "Looking Glass" role, providing command and control of U.S. nuclear forces should ground-based control become inoperable. With production lasting until 1991, the E-6 was the final new derivative of the Boeing 707 to be built.
UPDATE 5:41 PM EDT —
Numerous Emergency Action Messages (EAM's) being transmitted to US Military via worldwide shortwave on 11.175 MHz, Upper Side-Band. All these messages are CODED and there is no possible way to decode them, but the fact that numerous EAM's are being transmitted is probably not good.

UPDATE 7:17 PM EDT —
WASHINGTON, Aug. 14 (Yonhap) — The United States will go to war with North Korea if it fires missiles at Guam, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said Monday, issuing another strong warning to the nuclear armed regime.
Guam, a U.S. territory in the Pacific, has emerged as a major security issue following North Korea's threats to shoot ballistic missiles into nearby waters.
That threat came last week, escalating already high tensions between Washington and Pyongyang.
"We'll know if it's going towards Guam within moments," Mattis said of the missiles, on an unannounced visit to the Pentagon's press room. "I think if they fire at the United States, it could escalate into war very quickly. Yes, that's called war, if they shoot at us."
UPDATE 7:24 PM EDT —
KCNA: "The Hwasong artillerymen will wring the windpipes of the Yankees and point daggers at their necks."
KCNA: "when a second Korean war breaks out, it would be a nuclear war."
South Korea and the United States CONFIRM THEY WILL conduct a major annual military exercise next week amid rising tensions on the Korean peninsula between Washington and Pyongyang, which threatened earlier in August to launch missiles into the ocean near US military bases on Guam.
The spokespersons for the South Korean military and the Combined Forces Command confirmed to EFE on Monday that these maneuvers are scheduled for next week, but the official dates have yet to be announced.
Traditionally, the joint annual military exercise known as Ulchi Freedom Guardian kicks off on Monday of the penultimate week of August and lasts for 12 days.
The Ulchi Freedom Guardian, the world's largest computer-simulated combat session, is expected to begin this year on Aug. 21 and conclude on Sept. 1.
The joint drills will simulate combat in which both South Korean and US forces defend South Korean territory from a potential North Korean invasion.
Pyongyang considers such maneuvers provocative and often responds to them with missile launches or war threats.
The exercises come at a time of exceptional regional tension after North Korea threatened to attack the United States earlier in August.
The Stalinist state heavily criticized the latest set of sanctions imposed by the United Nations over its missile launches, and threatened to attack the US territory of Guam, to which US President Donald Trump responded that North Korea would be met with "fire and fury" if it did not stop threatening the US.
The Pyongyang regime responded to its rival with an unusual twist, saying that it was preparing a missile strike on waters near Guam, which houses important US bases, and has even provided details of such a plan.
Pyongyang's constant weapons tests have escalated tensions on the Korean peninsula and worsened its relations with the US, leading Trump to consider the possibility of preemptive strikes against the North Korean regime.
UPDATE 8:00 PM EDT —
North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has decided not to launch a threatened missile attack on Guam, Pyongyang’s state media reported on Tuesday, but warned that he could change his mind “if the Yankees persist in their extremely dangerous reckless actions.” (Source)
