This is the DEFCON Warning System. Alert status for 8 P.M. Monday, February 1st, 2016. Condition Green. DEFCON 5. Condition Green. DEFCON 5. Condition Green. DEFCON 5.

There are currently no imminent nuclear threats against the United States at this time.

The United States and Russia continue to antagonize each other with each encroaching into areas considered to be part of the other's sphere of influence.  The U.S. has involved itself more into Syria while Russia has sent flights to Japan and Turkey. While it is unlikely that Syria will devolve into an armed conflict between Russia and the United States, Turkey continues to be a wild card, though their reaction to the alleged recent overflight was more restrained than last time.  Russia has rearmed two missile divisions with nuclear ICBMs while NATO has refused to limit missile defense to appease Russia.

North Korea has announced a successful test of a hydrogen nuclear bomb, however some scientists doubt that the bomb was hydrogen as the explosion was not large enough. Nevertheless, South Korea has begun to take steps in response to the nuclear test, including resumption of propaganda broadcasts which have inflamed the North in the past.  The South is now also seeking strategic weapons from the United States, though it is considered unlikely that such a request would be granted given how the North would respond to such armament.  The U.S., for its part, has conducted a flight of a strategic bomber over South Korea in a show of force to North Korea.

Iran has removed the core from Arak as part of nuclear deal.  Sanctions have been lifted against Iran under the nuclear agreement reached between Iran and the West, though the U.S. has imposed new sanctions on Iran over its ballistic missile programme.  With assistance from Russia and China, Iran plans to build two more nuclear plants.

China tests rail-mobile nuclear missiles, which are much harder to detect and neutralize, while China also admits that it has begun sea patrols with its nuclear missile submarines. Meanwhile, the United States sends a warship to South China Sea.  China also continues its expansion into Africa, making a deal for its first military base there.

The DEFCON Warning System is a private enterprise which monitors world events and assesses nuclear threats against the United States by national entities. It is not affiliated with any government agency and does not represent the alert status of any military branch. The public should make their own evaluations and not rely on the DEFCON Warning System for any strategic planning. At all times, citizens are urged to learn what steps to take in the event of a nuclear attack.

If this had been an actual attack, the DEFCON Warning System will give radiation readings for areas that are reported to it. Your readings will vary. Official news sources will have radiation readings for your area.

For immediate updates, go to Breaking news and important information can be found on the DEFCON Warning System message board and on the DEFCON Twitter feed DEFCONWS. You may also subscribe to the YouTube channel DefconWarningSystem and the DEFCON Warning System mailing list. Note that Twitter and YouTube updates may be subject to delays. The next scheduled update is 8 P.M. Pacific Time, March1st, 2016. Additional updates will be made as the situation warrants, with more frequent updates at higher alert levels.

This concludes this broadcast of the DEFCON Warning System.
