DEFCON Warning System – Update 6/13/2017

The DEFCON Warning System

This is the DEFCON Warning System. Alert status for 7 P.M., Tuesday, June 13th, 2017. Condition code is Green. DEFCON 5.

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

While the Korean theater continues to be an area of significant tension, South Korea currently is in no mood for war, which has caused the United States to re-evaluate plans for the region. South Korea has made some recent overtures to North Korea, but so far they have been mostly rebuffed, which seems to have come as a surprise to South Korea. It remains to be seen how South Korea will re-model its approach to its northern adversary, but for the time being it appears the region is not heading to war.

Meanwhile, North Korea has stated that it has accomplished high precision in newest missile test. It is impossible to verify the claim, but if true it would mark significant progress in its ballistic programme. South Korea, for its part, has suspended deployment of an anti-missile system.

Russia claims strategic parity with NATO as it receives a steady flow of new weapons to its arsenal. Additionally, it continues to successfully test its hypersonic missiles, capable of thwarting anti-missile defenses as Russia continues to move away from its nuclear “no first use” policy. The United States, however, has successfully shot down an intercontinental-range missile during a test.

Elsewhere, Iran has built a third underground ballistic missile facility while the Pentagon reports that China is arming manmade islands in the South China Sea with warplane hangars and weapons. Additionally, it says China is capable of delivering nuclear missiles to the West Coast of the United States.

The DEFCON Warning System is a private intelligence organization which has monitored and assessed nuclear threats against the United States by national entities for over 33 years. 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.
