World War 3: Has WW3 already begun? Why May 13 is an important date about the world’s end – Express.co.uk

Posted: August 25, 2017 at 4:18 am

The start of joint-military drills between the US and South Korea yesterday, prompted fears that a nuclear conflict could be approaching.

North Korea furiously reacted to the drills, with the regime’s state-run newspaper Rodong Sinmun warning that this could lead to an “uncontrollable phase of a nuclear war”.

“The Trump group’s declaration of the reckless nuclear war exercises against the DPRK… is a reckless behaviour driving the situation into the uncontrollable phase of a nuclear war,” the paper claimed.

However one mystic’s bold prophecies suggest that WW3 could already be here, and that it broke out on May 13.

A mystic who accurately foretold the rise of US President Donald Trump, also predicted in April that 2017 would be the year World War 3 finally begun.

Horacio Villegas, who has proclaimed himself the “messenger of God”, believed that May 13 was the day the catastrophic conflict would begin.

Mr Villegas who is a devout Catholic, spectacularly claimed that Donald Trump would trigger the war on the 100th anniversary of the visitation of the Virgin Mary in Fatima in 1917.

The mother of Jesus allegedly made several miraculous appearances to three children in the Portuguese village, and on her last visit on October 13, 1917, she warned: The war is going to end, and the soldiers will soon return to their homes.

This has led Mr Villegas to believe that Donald Trump would trigger a devastating six-month-long conflict between May and October.

Between May 13th and October 13 2017, this war will occur and be over with much devastation, shock and death

Horacio Villegas, Mystic

Explaining his theory, Mr Villegas said: The main message that people need to know in order be prepared is that between May 13th and October 13 2017, this war will occur and be over with much devastation, shock and death.

The mystic went on to also say that at the world would be tricked by “a false flag” of conflicts in North Korea and Syria between April 13 and May 13.

He said: The reason I feel the coming false flag might be during this Holy Week is because just as Christ suffered on a Good Friday at one time, the world is about to enter its Good Friday moment as well and it would fit in Gods timeline as to the start of this dark period in human period in human history that this war would be sparked near Good Friday 2017.

Yet despite these bold claims no global war has broken out on May 13, and the stand-off between the US and North Korea has remained purely verbal.

In fact on that day Choi Son Hui, North Korea’s foreign ministry director, opened up to the idea of direct talks with the United States if the conditions satisfied Kim Jong-un.

Yet Mr Villegas is not the only mystic to have predicted the outbreak of WW3 in 2017.

Nostradamus, a famous French physician who is believed to have prophesied several global events, wrote of a conflict between the East and the West.

The 16th century prophet wrote: “Twice put up and twice cast down, the East will also weaken the West. Its adversary after several battles chased by sea will fail at time of need.”

However these claims remain purely speculative and are open to interpretation.

Eclipse ‘signals start of WW3 as US starts military exercises around North Korea – Express.co.uk

Posted: at 4:18 am

Doomsayers have been predicting for weeks that the phenomena would signal the beginning of a series of events leading to the apocalypse.

However, one, Christian numerologist David Meade, claims announcements by Donald Trump yesterday of military exercises near North Korea, is the first genuine sign.

Millions of people watched the eclipse cross the US from its west to east coast yesterday.

At the same time the US and South Korea started land, sea and air military exercises around North Korea, as a warning to dictator Kim Jong-un who is expected to give an angry response… that could spark Word War 3.

the drill has been scheduled at the precise time Kim threatened to fire missiles towards US territory Guam.

Mr Meade told Daily Star Online the eclipse was a sign a confrontation between the US and North Korea and would spiral into World War 3, involving China, Russia, the UK and Australia, among other nations.

He said this was part of the Great Tribulation a period of famine, war and natural disasters Jesus said would mark the End of Times.

Mr Meade has previously said the world will be destroyed finally when a mythical planet called Nibiru or Planet X appears in the skies on September 23, 2017, and crashes into Earth in early October.

August 21 is highly prophetic. It could be the date that missiles fly but no later than October of 2017. That seems to be the opening of the Sixth Seal.

Where to find your nearest nuclear bunker in the event of WW3 – Coventry Telegraph

Posted: August 20, 2017 at 6:27 pm

Donald Trump has issued fresh threats towards North Korea – declaring the US military “locked and loaded”.

The US President also warned that the communist country’s leader “will regret it fast” if he takes any action against American territories or allies.

The warnings came in a cascade of unscripted statements throughout the day, each ratcheting up a rhetorical stand-off between the two nuclear nations.

The US president appeared to draw another red line that would trigger an attack against North Korea and “big, big trouble” for its leader Kim Jong Un.

The comments from Mr Trump have led many to fear the prospect of a Third World War.

Hundreds of thousands of people would be killed if a nuclear blast hit Coventry and Warwickshire.

Imagining the bomb went off at ground level in Broadgate, the city centre would be turned into a 300m wide and 200m deep crater, according to interactive data site Nukemap .

The city would be dependent on outsiders and national agencies for help after the blast.

In the fallout survivors would find dozens of hospitals and medical facilities would have been destroyed.

A dozen fire stations would also have been wiped out.

At the same moment around 200 schools and hundreds of churches, mosques, gurdwaras and temples could have been levelled or badly damaged.

So, where could you find shelter?

Following the end of the Cold War, the nationwide network of bunkers fell into disrepair and were sold off.

Some of the bunkers entered active military service, whilst others were sold off privately.

Local councils also have hardened control rooms which mainly date back to the Cold War and Nuclear era.

However these now act as emergency control rooms, and are not referred to as nuclear bunkers.

Don’t panic, though, because there are still a string of bunkers dotted across the country.

And, handily, you can find your nearest one in the West Midlands by clicking here.

Secret North Korea talks with US RESURRECTED to calm WW3 fears, former official declares – Express.co.uk

Posted: at 6:27 pm

GETTY

The talks are being conducted using a New York channel through the United Nations, it has been reported.

Key players in the talks are reported to be Joseph Yun, a former US ambassador to Malaysia and now the US special representative for North Korea policy, and North Korea’s senior diplomat, Choe Son Hui, who is head of the Foreign Ministry’s North American office.

Previous secret talks between the countries in Norway are understood to have led to the release of American student Otto Warmbier from North Korea.

Robert Einhorn, a former State Department official and now Brookings senior fellow who was involved in the Norway talks, said: “Since that episode, I’m told that the ‘New York channel’ has been resurrected and there are periodic contacts.

The current back-channel talks between the two nations have been going on for several months, it was reported last week.

Mr Einhorn said the New York channel was resurrected after being interrupted about a year ago when the Obama administration imposed sanctions on North Korea for human rights violations, and also designated dictator Kim Jong Un as one of the targeted individuals.

He said: The North Koreans retaliated by cutting off the New York channel, and what that meant was no official contacts between the United States and North Korea.

Mr Einhorn was also sceptical about the prospect of the US engaging in a formal dialogue with Pyongyang to talk about denuclearisation of North Korea.

GETTY

He said: The impression that the US has is that the North Koreans are not eager for such a dialogue.

The US has indicated that before talks can begin that the North Koreans would have to take some steps to demonstrate their sincerity.”

James Carafano, vice president of foreign and defence policy studies at the Heritage Institute, said: “Back-channels are useful tools for sending messages back and forth but they won’t be any kind of path forward in terms of setting up negotiations or resolving things.

Meanwhile, the North Korean regime yesterday said that South Korean President Moon Jae-in miserably failed to improve ties between the two nations during his first 100 days in office.

GETTY

Rodong Sinmun, the hermit kingdoms propaganda mouthpiece, said: “In particular, he failed in inter-Korean relations.

He spoke of dialogue and an implementation of inter-Korean agreements, but in reality, he acted in the opposite direction.”

Mr Moon marked his 100th day in office on Thursday.

The South Korean Presidents parents were refugees from North Korea.

Did the Bible predict North Korea starting World War 3 with the US? – Express.co.uk

Analysis from the Philadelphia Church of God, claims the danger posed by North Korea is graver than many people realised.

They suggest Pyongyang and despot leader Kim Jong-Un could inflict major damage on the US or other Western nations.

Writing for The Trumpet, the news magazine of the church, Jeremiah Jacques indicates any strike could contribute to the wars and rumors of wars that Jesus Christ warned would occur before the third world war breaks out.

GETTY

End times and the apocalypse have long been linked to possible nuclear war.

The Bible describes that some 2,000 years ago, as Jesus sat on the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem with his disciples, he was asked what would happen at the end of the world.

He claimed there would be wars and rumors of wars, as well as fierce international tensions and famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes.

And while Mr Jacques admits this is unlikely to refer to North Korea, he suggested the hermit state could in fact play the role of a trigger to cause the devastating scenes of Revelations.

North Korea State Media

The analysis said: All of the missiles and nuclear technology the Kim dynasty has been developing over the years will contribute to the unprecedented devastation to occur during that prophesied third world war.

And he claims that although North Korea will not cause WW3 according to the Bible, the world should take its threats and actions seriously.

Trumpet executive editor Stephen Flurry and managing editor Joel Hilliker said: If nothing else, the mere threat of a mentally unstable tyrant in North Korea using nuclear weapons should cause all of us to be asking some very hard questions.

Rising current nuclear tension should provoke us to consider seriously the biblical prophecies of nuclear destruction.

Those prophecies are drawing closer than ever to fulfillment!

It comes after Pastor Greg Laurie of Harvest Christian Fellowship in Riverside, California says analysis of the escalating tensions between North Korea and the US suggests a nuclear war between the two superpowers fits into the End Times prophecy.

He said: In the Last Days there is no mention of any nation that would resemble North Korea however the Bible does speak of Iran in the End Times scenario.

You might be surprised to know there is an alignment of sorts between North Korea and Iran.

REUTERS

In fact, former ambassador the United Nations John Bolton recently said if North Korea developed a delivery system for nuclear weapon Iran would have it the next day simply by writing a cheque.

Tensions between North Korea and the United States have escalated in recent weeks with US President Donald Trump and dictator Kim embroiled in a war of words.

Mr Trump warned the US was “locked and loaded” as Kim threatened to strike US territory Guam in the Pacific Ocean.

Kim’s WW3 threat: Rare colour pics show brutal reality of LAST Korean War – Daily Star

Posted: at 6:27 pm

THESE incredible colour pictures capture the brutal reality of the Korean War for Western troops as tensions escalate between Washington and Pyongyang.

The shots, sure to worry Kim Jong-un, show UN forces in action during the devastating conflict, which lasted from 1950-1953.

US soldiers are seen firing bazookas, taking cover behind tanks, and training their sights on enemy forces.

The pictures emerge as North Korea and the US ramp up their war of words.

Defence Secretary Jim Mattis last week said continued aggression from Pyongyang could escalate into war very quickly.

Washington and Pyongyang have stoked fears of nuclear conflict since the North Korean tyrant said he was carefully considering an attack on a US military base on Guam earlier this month.

Donald Trump said the hermit kingdom would be met with fire and fury if it maintained its threats.

The photographs will be a stark reminder of the horrors faced in the last Korean conflict.

They reveal images including three grizzled Royal Marines taking cover in a trench with fixed bayonets and a monster M20 rocket launcher.

One weary US marine is shown huddling against the bitter cold, while another bloodied troop tries to find a moment of solitude.

The most important thing is to research the image thoroughly before attempting the colouring.

My aim is to establish the media of colourising black and white images in a way that will earn credibility among the purists who think that black and white photos should remain in that way.

I also want to educate those, particularly youngsters, that otherwise would not be interested in dull black and white images that are gathering dust in museums and private collections.

Earlier this month, Daily Star Online uncovered other pics from the conflict showing wounded American troops on the battlefield.

In June, we also revealed colourised World War Two photos that capture dogfights and RAF heroes with their aircraft.

The Korean War began when North Korea invaded South Korea in June 1950.

The UN came to the aid of South Korea with US forces providing the bulwark of resistance.

After three years of fighting, an armistice was signed and the Korean Demilitarised Zone separated North and South Korea.

No peace treaty was agreed and the two Koreas are still technically at war.

US to stage massive drills on Kim’s doorstep as WW3 fears grow – Daily Star

THE US and South Korea are set to carry out joint military drills next week resisting calls from the North and China to halt their exercises.

WASHINGTON will step up its military actions in Asia as tubby tyrant Kim Jong-un defies calls to surrender Pyongyang’s nukes.

Fears over the Hermit Kingdoms nuclear programme have grown in recent weeks after the Norths supremo announced he was considering firing a barrage of missiles at Guam.

But Pyongyang appears to have cooled talks of an imminent strike on the US-owned Pacific island.

It dialled back its rhetoric after US President Donald Trump vowed to use fire and fury against North Korea if it continued to develop nuclear missiles that could hit the American mainland.

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Washington did, however, prefer a peaceful solution and offered an olive branch to the rogue regime.

He said: Our effort is to cause them to want to engage in talks but engage in talks with an understanding that these talks will lead to a different conclusion than talks of the past.

The Hermit Kingdom was quick to dismiss any suggestion it would give up its nuclear programme and said this week it would never be up for negotiation as long as the US governments hostile policy and nuclear threat continue.

In 2005, Pyongyang agreed to suspend its nuclear in return for much-needed energy assistance before the deal collapsed.

Chubby Kim has repeatedly threatened to use its nuclear weapons and Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles (ICBM) to bomb targets in the US, South Korea and Japan.

The rogue communist state became more emboldened in July after it successfully launched two Hwasong-14 missiles that could strike targets in the American heartland, including Los Angeles and Chicago.

MAPPED: Where in the UK you’ll be SAFE from a WW3 nuke missile strike – Daily Star

Posted: at 5:28 am

A MAP has emerged supposedly showing where in the UK you’ll be safe from nuclear war.

An estate agent has issued the guide to the places best to live if global nuclear war breaks out.

Online agents eMoov was forced to issue an apology after facing backlash for the stunt.

The map highlights the zones which would be wiped out by a nuclear strike on the 20 biggest cities in the UK.

Along with the map, the estate agent wrote: With tensions between the US and North Korea escalating, eMoov.co.uk has highlighted some options for home buyers, that should (hopefully) keep them clear of any nuclear impact from World War Three.

A back yard nuclear bunker can be a cool edition to a property, but can also be a pain to construct.

So rather than hide away, home owners can look to radiation free pockets of the nations to save themselves the trouble.

Scottish town Dumfries, which has an average house price of 115,929 and Welsh town Aberystwyth, with an average house price of 175,809, would be the best spots for nearby Brits concerned by the possibility of a nuclear WWIII.

The agents claimed a nuclear strike on London would wipe out most of the commuter belt including Surrey and Essex, as well as towns such as Reading.

If the world was to descend into nuclear madness the fallout would mean house prices would probably become irrelevant

The only commutable towns which would be safe from a nuclear attack on London are in the furthest reaches of Kent and Essex.

The agent used a web tool called Nukemap to calculate the effects of 100-megaton strikes on London, Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Newcastle, Leeds, Manchester, Hull, Nottingham, Birmingham, Cambridge, Norwich, Oxford, Bristol, Swansea, Southampton, Brighton, Plymouth, Liverpool and Sheffield.

It said swathes of the country would become uninhabitable due to a 40-mile thermal radiation radius from each warhead.

EMoov chief executive Russell Quirk said: Luckily, were out of range from any North Korean missiles, but if the world was to descend into nuclear madness the fallout would mean house prices would probably become irrelevant.

That said, with buyer demand already at explosive levels compared to the ground zero stock levels available, a nuclear war could see these more affordable areas grow in value as demand for a house still standing outside of an impact zone increases.

The average house in Margate is 216,134, compared to 209,645 in Clacton-on-Sea.

Elsewhere, Carlisle, Lancaster and north Wales offer good value homes safe from nuclear destruction.

For years it was tip top secret, but this Cold War-era Chinese nuclear installation used to make plutonium for nuclear weapons has now been opened as a tourist attraction

Not everyone saw the funny side to the prank.

One Twitter user said a disturbing amount of research had gone into the guide, and another joked: Nothing says Why not take on a 30-year mortgage like the threat of imminent nuclear war.

Mr Quirk said that the release was intended as a “tongue-in-cheek” response to the news of an escalation of tensions between the US and North Korea.

“Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un are a couple of joke characters. Their posturing is akin to two drunk uncles at a wedding pathetically threatening to punch each other,” he told CNBC via email.

“We conceived this as a rather tongue-in-cheek release but on reflection realise that our over enthusiasm may be seen as in poor taste by some and for which I apologise,” he added.

The guide was issued after Donald Trump promised fire and fury in response to Kims threat to launch missiles at US territory Guam.

Last year Daily Star Online revealed what would happen if one of Kim’s nukes were dropped on your town.

Despot Kim Jong-un today launched the five-day event, which celebrates his legacy and the legacies of his father Kim Jong-il and grandfather Kim il-Sung.

The huge party is taking place in Pyongyang, home to Kim and his closest allies.

Huge rallies, mass performances and speeches will be held across North Korea’s capital. Thousands of civilians will also be expected to pay tribute to statues of their former leaders, who are still hailed as demigods.

It will also serve as an opportunity for Kim to once again issue provocative statements regarding America and Donald Trump.

The party will coincide with North Koreas Liberation Day celebration on Tuesday, which marks Korea’s WW2 victory over Japan.

On that day massive demonstrations will take place in North Koreas cavernous Rungrado 1st of May Stadium. It is the largest stadium in the world and holds more than 100,000 people.

A huge rally held earlier this week should serve as an example of the sort of events expected during the next few days.

On Wednesday thousands of people took part in the mass demonstration, where they held up banners in favour of war.

‘Give Japan NUKES to stop WW3’ North Korea crisis sparks calls for MORE weapons – Daily Star

Posted: August 16, 2017 at 6:30 pm

JAPAN should armed with nuclear weapons to deter North Korea from launching a missile strike against the US, an ex-US Navy commander has said.

GETTY

North Korea has angered the international community after threatening to fire ballistic missiles towards the US territory of Guam.

It is thought supreme leader Kim Jong-un may order the launch in the coming days after threats of fire and fury from US President Donald Trump.

To curb the threat posed by North Koreas nuclear programme, John M Bird, a retired vice admiral, has called for Japan to be given nukes.

Under Japans post-WW2 constitution, the nation is prohibited from possessing the weapons to wage war, including nukes.

But Mr Bird believes it is time to allow Japan, a major US ally, to develop a nuclear weapons programme of its own to counter North Koreas.

Kim Jong-un has threatened to fire missiles at the island of Guam, where the US has its foothold in the Pacific Ocean a key strategic location. We take a look at the island North Korea want to nuke

Earlier this year Japanese Democratic Party head Hiroshi Amazu argued that his nation should have the right to defend itself with nukes.

He said: “Japan can’t just wait until it’s destroyed.

“It’s legally possible for Japan to strike an enemy base that’s launching a missile at us, but we don’t have the equipment or capability.”

If Japan were to become nuclear-armed, Mr Bird said it may deter the totalitarian state from launching an attack on the US or its allies.

GETTY

Many thoughtful people have said we should introduce tactical nukes into the Western Pacific.

He said that Japanese nukes would also force China, North Koreas traditional ally, to rein in Jong-un and change its view of THAAD Americas defence missile system.

He said: Many thoughtful people have said we should introduce tactical nukes into the Western Pacific, making signals that Japan no longer considers the US nuclear umbrella adequate and is going their own way.

Those sorts of things will pique Chinas interest. Being that theyre upset about a THAAD, theyd be very upset and not like that option.

And if they thought it was realistic, they China might be willing to really weigh in with the North Koreans. That is only kind of diplomacy thats going to make a difference.

His comments come after China warned Jong-un and Trump to slam the breaks on the North Korea crisis.

The US and North Korea were urged to urgently “put the brakes” on provocative actions and words on Tuesday.

Speaking with his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov on Tuesday in a phone conversation, China’s Foreign Minister Wang Yi said he wanted to prevent an “August crisis”.
