Australia Takes MASSIVE Stand For The United States… Puts North Korea On Notice

Countries around the world are on the edge of their seats watching the United States and North Korea exchange worsening threats.

But while they’re watching, our brothers and sisters down under just stunned the world with one epic statement about defending the United States and how they feel about North Korea.

Breitbart reports:

CANBERRA, Australia — Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull says if North Korea directy launches an attack on the United States mainland or any of its overseas territories including Guam, Australia will immediately join the conflict.

“America stands by its allies, including Australia of course, and we stand by the United States,” Mr Turnbull told local radio station 3AW on Friday morning.

“So be very, very clear on that. If there’s an attack on the US, the ANZUS Treaty would be invoked and Australia would come to the aid of the United States, as America would come to our aid if we were attacked.”

The ANZUS Treaty binds the U.S., Australia and New Zealand together in a defense pact covering military matters in the Pacific Ocean region. It provides that an armed attack on any of the three parties would be dangerous to the others, and that each should act to meet the common threat.

Mr Turnbull also revealed he had discussed North Korea’s behaviour with U.S. Vice-President Mike Pence overnight, calling it “the most dangerous flashpoint in the world today, ” adding the terms of the Australia-U.S. alliance were clear.

“But be under no misapprehension, in terms of defence, we are joined at the hip,” he said. “The American alliance is the absolute bedrock of our national security. If there is an attack on the U.S. … we would come to their aid.

“Now, how that manifests itself obviously will depend on the circumstances and the consultations with our allies.”

  1. Why should anyone wait for Kim Un to strike first. If one of the missiles mistakenly hits Guam or South Korea or even America, does any of you out there know how many souls that would have been lost. Any retaliation that would be meted to North Korea will be medicine after death. Let’s make haste while the sun shines. If you have information concerning where he stockpiled the weapons of mass destruction please go ahead and destroy them and do not wait till he strike.
