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.”
