North Korean strike on Guam could trigger UK strikes

A British MP today warned the UK could join a war against North Korea if the dictatorship attacks the American territory of Guam.

Jack Lopresti said Britain would be under an obligation to step in and defend its Nato ally by force if necessary if Kim Jong-un follows through on his threat to launch a missile strike.

And fellow Tory MP Dr Julian Lewis, chairman-elect of the defence select committee, warned that an attack would be seen as a modern-day Pearl Harbor and would trigger a ferocious response by the Americans.

Fears that tensions in the Far East could spill over into a deadly war intensified last night after Pyongyang threatened to attack the South Pacific island.
