London, United Kingdom. The internationally known group Anonymous has released a communique, suggesting that the North Korean missile standoff is actually an out of control confrontation, expected to shortly result in WWIII.

Hacking group Anonymous has claimed the Third World War will start this year or next because of tensions on the Korean peninsula between the world superpowers involved. One of the group’s Guy Fawkes masked members provided the backdrop for robotic speech narration.

The video says, “All the signs of a looming war on the Korean peninsula are surfacing. Watching as each country moves strategic pieces into place, but unlike past world wars, although there will be ground troops, the battle is likely to be fierce, brutal and quick.”

“Prepare for what comes next,” the group warned in a video published to its YouTube channel as it suggested a conflict would be “globally devastating, both on the environmental and economic levels”. “This is a real war with global consequences, with three superpowers drawn into the mix. Other nations will be coerced into choosing sides.”

The video cites reports of China telling its citizens to leave North Korea, recent US tests of its Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missiles and US military deployments to Australia in making its claim of “looming” war.

“The Chinese are desperate to avert a war. Economically, it would put them back behind the eight-ball as they deal with an influx of refugees over the border and the very real threat of a devastating war. “Only this week, after many pleas to both the US and North Korea to refrain from escalating already decades-high tensions, Chinese officials told them to stop irritating each other. The pragmatic Chinese, it seems, are starting to lose their patience.”

In it’s summation the group’s warning of a war simply concludes,”Prepare for what comes next.”
