DEFCON Warning System – Update 11/10/16

The DEFCON Warning System

This is the DEFCON Warning System. Alert status for 8 P.M., Thursday, November 10th, 2016. Condition code is Green. DEFCON 5.

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

The United States took a tentative step toward a more isolationist policy with its recent presidential election.  While it will take several months to see how the U.S. reforms its foreign policy, already some world leaders have expressed hope that relations could improve, including Russia and Syria.  China and North Korea, however, continue to either cast a wary eye or are outright belligerent.

If the new U.S. President keeps to his previous statements, look for the United States to withdraw somewhat from military confrontations in the Middle East and possibly European theater, though it is highly unlikely it will abandon NATO commitments, and the Ukraine will likely pop up again in the near future.  Russia, however, will probably wait to see what the new President does, as well as now being hampered by the coming winter.  Israel, on the other hand, will become more of a focal point again.

U.S. intelligence claims to have penetrated Russian computer systems including the electrical grid and command structures.  Meanwhile, more troops are to be sent to Europe in 2017 to bolster defenses against Russian movements and NATO continues building up forces in Poland and surrounding areas to protect against a potential Russian assault.  Additionally, it is said to be preparing a force of three hundred thousand ready to be deployed in the event of escalating tensions.  Russia has recently revealed new RS-28 Sarmat nuclear weapons which are claimed to be able to avoid radar defenses as well as testing new hyper-sonic missiles.  A new hyper-sonic weapon is expected to be fitted on to the Sarmat missile.

The Pentagon has issued a warning against the use of Chinese computers by the U.S. military which may be infected with spyware, while China continues to develop its capabilities among its growing carrier fleet.  The latest appears to be a catapult launch bar on its nose wheel, allowing heavier aircraft to be serviced.  China has also debuted its J-20 stealth fighter as it continues to close the tech gap with the United States.

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.

The next scheduled update is 8 P.M. Pacific Time, December 1st, 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.
