The Queen Is Prepared For WW3, And She Already Has Her Speech Ready

The Telegraph

A speech that was prepared for Queen Elizabeth II has been leaked to the public and it's absolutely bone-chilling.

As tensions mount between the U.S., Russia and China over the actions of North Korea and Syria many people predict that we are on the brink of an all-out nuclear war.

As North Korea refuses to back down over its nuclear testing program and boldly continues to test it's arsenal, many fear that the United States will respond with some sort of military strike.

With new predictions of the end of times, the shocking announcement couldn't have been leaked at a more eerily perfect time.

The script was drafted as a hypothetical broadcast. It was written during a war-gaming exercise in the spring of 1983, but the words are frighteningly accurate to what the world is going through in the last few months.

The address describes a "solemn and awful duty" that the Queen must deliver such a message. The reasons for entering into a war? "The deadly power of abused technology."

Read the Queen's speech below:

....

When I spoke to you just a few months ago we were all enjoying the warmth and fellowship of a family Christmas. Our thoughts were concentrated on the strong links that bind each generation to the ones that came before and those that will follow.

The horrors of war could not have seemed more remote as my family and I shared our Christmas joy with the growing family of the Commonwealth.

Now, this madness of war is once more spreading through the world and our brave country must again prepare itself to survive against great odds.

I have never forgotten the sorrow and the pride I felt as my sister and I huddled around the nursery wireless set listening to my father's inspiring words on that fateful day in 1939. Not for a single moment did I imagine that this solemn and awful duty would one day fall to me.

We all know that the dangers facing us today are greater by far than at any time in our long history. The enemy is not the soldier with his rifle nor even the airman prowling the skies above our cities and towns but the deadly power of abused technology.

But whatever terrors lie in wait for us all, the qualities that have helped to keep our freedom intact twice already during the last century will once more be our strength. My husband and I share with families up and down the land the fear we feel for sons and daughters, husbands and brothers who have left our side to serve their country.

We pray continually for the safety of all servicemen and women at home and overseas. It is this close bond of family life that must be our greatest defense against the unknown. If families remain united and resolute, giving shelter to those living alone and unprotected, our country's will to survive cannot be broken.

My message to you, therefore, is simple. Help those who cannot help themselves, give comfort to the lonely and the homeless and let your family become the focus of hope and life to those who need it.

As we strive together to fight off the new evil let us pray for our country and men of goodwill wherever they may be. God bless you all.

Did this give you chills? Are we headed for World War 3? You decide.
