The United States says that China is looking to establish a large navy port capable of hosting submarines or aircraft carriers on Africa’s western coast.  Meanwhile, China threatens to attack Australia if Australia militarily defends Taiwan from China attack.  The United Kingdom has sent a military fleet to sail through the South China Sea as tensions in the area continue to increase.

The head of the United Nations nuclear watchdog has said Iran is enriching uranium to levels that only countries seeking to make atomic weapons reach.  Additionally, The International Atomic Energy Agency says that it has not been able to access data to Iran’s nuclear program since late February.  The United States says sanctions will only be lifted from Iran if Iran comes into compliance with nuclear deal.

South Korea and the U.S. end Revised Missile Guidelines which limited South Korea ballistic missiles to 800 km.  Meanwhile, current estimates place North Korea’s nuclear weapon arsenal somewhere between 20-60 with a projection of 151 to 242 in six years.

The DEFCON Warning System is a private intelligence organization which has monitored and assessed nuclear threats by national entities since 1984. 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.
