This is the DEFCON Warning System. Alert status for 8  P.M. Sunday, March 1st, 2015. 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.

Although there has been an official cease fire in Ukraine, the situation is far from resolved as shelling continues by both sides as well as reports that heavy equipment is being removed during the observable day but returned under cover at night. Further hostilities are continued to be expected when the Spring thaw comes. Immediately prior to the ceasefire, there were concerns of renewed escalation as the United States contemplated sending lethal force weapons to aid Ukraine in their conflict with Russia. We do not know if Russia was aware of this or if this spurred the ceasefire.

NATO has reinforced its eastern border with Russia, likely to antagonize Russia which inherently fears invasion by Western powers.  Meanwhile, Russian bombers test England's response capabilities as Russian intercepts have tripled since 2013. Russia has also made diplomatic inroads with North Korea, including that Russian and North Korean militaries would hold joint drills later this year.

Russia's satellite-based early warning system is offline as delays have prevented the launch of a new generation of satellites to replace those that have malfunctioned or at the end of their operational lifetimes.  It is estimated that the launches will begin in July. Russia's ground-based early warning system remains operational. Disturbingly, Russia has an automated system which will order a retaliatory strike without human intervention, a system which some have expressed concern as to its vulnerability to hacking. This system is designed to respond to Russian concerns over U.S. hypersonic missiles.  These missiles have a variable trajectory and can be mistaken as an ICBM attack against Russia.

High ups in the U.S. military have expressed concern over micromanaging by the Obama administration, hampering the military's ability to effectively conduct campaigns. China is now reported to have a larger submarine fleet than the United States and is expanding the geographic areas of operation for its submarines. Saudi Arabia is currently bolstering its ballistic missile arsenal, fearing that Iran will continue its nuclear programme in spite of negotiations between Iran and the West.

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. This system serves northern Stevens County, Washington and Hutchinson County, Texas. 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, April 2nd, 2015. 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.
