WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?
DEFENCE expert Hayden Ollerton of the think tank Forward! claims that all the pieces are falling into place to see the start of World War 3.
He said: “This is knife edge stuff because just like the First World War we could see the world’s nation’s clash because of a series of treaties.
“The U.S. are duty bound to protect South Korea and Japan while China have a defence treaty with North Korea. Ordinarily that is enough to prevent any military action but with Trump in the White House things have changed.
“If a North Korean missile lands on anywhere the U.S. has sworn to protect they will react. That would mean China weighing in on behalf of North Korea.
“That would be Kaboom! time, quite frankly.”
