In addition to military deployments, Anonymous notes warnings governments in Japan and South Korea have made to their citizens about possible nuclear attacks from North Korea.
Watching as each country moves strategic pieces into place,” the organization says, in its notorious robotic voice. “But unlike past world wars, although there will be ground troops, the battle is likely to be fierce, brutal and quick. It will also be globally devastating, both on environmental and economical levels.”
The hacker group points to last week’s U.S. test of a Minuteman 3 intercontinental ballistic missile as proof a major conflict may be coming between North Korea and the United States.
While Japan told its citizens to make preparations for a possible nuclear attack, China has urged its citizens in North Korea to return home as tensions keep rising.
Anonymous credits the United States and South Korea for working together to keep peace in the region, with assistance from China and the Philippines.
They also assert that the United States is working with Australia, having sent a rotational deployment of more than 1,000 troops to the Land Down Under, along with a large fleet of military aircraft.
For Anonymous, another sign that war may be imminent is the fact President Trump has reached out to Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte to discuss the North Korean situation and other regional security matters.
Trump has received criticism from Democrats and weak-kneed Republicans for his contact with Duterte, given the Philippine leader’s controversial human rights record. But Anonymous notes that relations between the two leaders and their countries are “heading in a very positive direction,” given the threat posed by North Korea to global peace.
The citizen will be the last to know, so it is important to understand what the other nations are doing,” the group states, citing China’s warning last week to its people in the North. “The pragmatic Chinese, it seems, are starting to lose their patience.”
Anonymous worries that a conflict on the Korean peninsula could spread to other Asian nations and even draw others into the conflict.
This is a real war with real global consequences,” the group explains. “With three superpowers drawn into the mix, other nations will be coerced into choosing sides, so what do the chess pieces look like so far?”
As more people view the video and consider its implications, greater attention will be focused on the strategic moves underway and where they may lead.
