Hacker group Anonymous warns WW3 with North Korea 'looming'

(NEWSWEEK) As former allied nations around the world celebrate the 1945 defeat of Nazi Germany in World War Two, online activist group Anonymous has released a new video warning that global powers are poising for another global conflict--and that the cost would be even higher than that of the last.

The group posted a video Saturday entitled "They are preparing for what comes next (WW3 2017-2018)" on its official YouTube account. In the six-minute-and-forty-five-second clip, a figure wearing a black cloak and Guy Fawkes mask can be heard through a digital voice explaining how the actions of nations, including the U.S., China and Japan, currently involved in the tensions between North Korea and South Korea supposedly indicated that a total war is on the horizon.
