It’s no longer a war of rhetoric for the United States of America and North Korea; Britain has drawn up a battle plan and is ready for war against Kim Jong Un.
In the face of recurring provocations with DPRK’s nuclear missile tests and verbal threats of attacks against Guam, Japan, South Korea and the U.S., there’s a possibility that America could launch a preemptive attack. This fear has triggered Britain’s decision to ready itself for war.
Ahead of last Tuesday’s anniversary to mark the founding of the ruling party in N. Korea, there were speculations that Kim would fire more missiles to prove its military might despite sanctions from the United Nations.
Recent rants from US President Donald Trump and his erring counterpart somewhat increased tensions in the region, and by other means, helped douse extremities.
Mr Trump previously said his country would “totally destroy” North Korea if necessary to protect itself and its allies from Pyongyang’s nuclear threats.
“Presidents and their administrations have been talking to North Korea for 25 years, agreements made and massive amounts of money paid……,” the billionaire business mogul said on Twitter.
Still talking about the need to bear arms against North Korea, the US President tweeted, “…hasn’t worked, agreements violated before the ink was dry, makings fools of U.S. negotiators. Sorry, but only one thing will work!”
The Daily Mail reported that Britain, in response to a possible war situation, deployed its Navy’s newest aircraft carrier, HMS Queen Elizabeth, even before it was tested on air.
The aircraft carrier is not due to enter service until 2020; it had only arrived Portsmouth last August, after a thorough test at sea.
Responding to questions on HMS Queen Elizabeth, a source from Whitehall told The Telegraph, “We have plenty of ships to send… the Type-45 destroyers, the Type-23 frigates. Britain’s new aircraft carrier could be pressed into service early if things turn south.”
