The notorious hacktivist group Anonymous has released a frightening video warning the world to prepare for World War III. This video arrives as tensions have been amounting between the United States and North Korea.

“All the signs of a looming war on the Korean peninsula are surfacing,” the masked individual states in a six minute video that was uploaded onto Youtube over the weekend. “Watching as each country moves strategic pieces into place,” the man in the Guy Fawkes mask added. “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 hacktivist group allege that with recent military development, Japan and South Korea have been issuing precautions of an imminent nuclear attack from North Korea. Anonymous has also noted that the testing of the Minutemen 3 intercontinental ballistic missile last week by President Donald Trump and the wave of warnings that the Japanese have been issuing it's citizens of a possible nuclear attack, are all signs of a war waiting to materialize.

But the alarming signals do not end there. With the pressure of China's nuclear weapons program persisting to intensify, the country has urged it's citizens in North Korea to return home.
“This is a real war with real global consequences,” Anonymous illustrates. “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?”
Supposedly, the Trump administration have jointly worked with the Australians, because it is a "strategic location in the Indian Ocean," according to Anonymous. More than 1,000 US troops and a large fleet of military aircraft have been deployed into the country.
President Trump's meeting with Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte over a week ago was a success as a readout later stated that the two countries are “heading in a very positive direction.” The two also discussed about the case of North Korea and other regional security threats.
"However, even Duterte has advised the US to back away from Kim Jong Un,” the group claim.

“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” the group added.
The group warned the people to “prepare for what comes next,” and just like all their other videos they concluded with their declaration, "We are Anonymous. We are Legion. We do not forgive. We do not forget.”
Anonymous, which has no centralized leader, is a global network of hackers and a movement group that is dedicated to disclose "facts the government doesn’t want you to know." They are best described by their supporters as vigilantes, just like whistleblowers Edward Snowden, Chelsea Manning and Julian Assange. However, those that oppose the group perceive them as traitors and a threat to society.
Will Anonymous predictions about World War III come true, or is this another fear mongering distraction?
