Terminal High Altitude Area Defense, simply called as THAAD, is an American anti-ballistic missile defence system created to shoot down short, medium, and intermediate range ballistic missiles in their final phase by intercepting with a hit-to-kill approach.

Reports claim that the White House set up the THAAD missiles in Guam as a protection against a possible missile attack from North Korea.

As North Korea conducted its first successful test of a long-range intercontinental ballistic missile Hwasong-14, the Indian government on Friday expressed concern over the incident. The U.S. also has a THAAD weapon system at the Pacific Spaceport Complex Alaska in Kodiak. The test showed the world the system can defend the United States against missiles more technically advanced than anything in North Korea's current arsenal. China registered their anger over THAAD implementation as it would had led to a weakening of their own ballistic missile system.

Does the North Korean threat worry you?

Democratic Representatives John Conyers and Sheila Jackson Lee, along with Republican Walter Jones, filed an amendment to the annual National Defence Authorization Act saying that nothing in the bill should be construed as authorizing the use of force against North Korea.

Mr Rudd's comments referred to the need for a system that would protect population centres such as Darwin - which is now potentially within range of North Korea's missiles - rather than the systems Mr Turnbull referred to.
