DEFCON Warning System – Update 7/1/21

This is the DEFCON Warning System. Alert status for 2 P.M., Thursday, July 1st, 2021. Condition code is Green. DEFCON 5.

There are currently no imminent nuclear threats at this time.

The Pentagon has approved two drones made in China for use by U.S. military.  Meanwhile, India has shifted 50,000 additional troops to China border, and China is constructing what experts believe to be 100 new missile silos for intercontinental ballistic missiles in its western desert.

Iran’s enriched uranium stockpile is now 16 times higher than limit set by nuclear deal.  Iran claims a stockpile of 6.5 kilograms (14.3 pounds) of uranium enriched to 60% purity and 108 kilograms of uranium enriched to 20% purity in five months.

Ebrahim Raisi, considered to be a hardliner, has won the Iranian Presidency, while Iran says its ballistic missile programme is non-negotiable.  Iran did not extend its agreement with the IAEA and will neither record data at nuclear sites nor turn over existing data to the monitoring agency.  Meanwhile, the United States continues to vow to not allow Iran to possess a nuclear weapon.

NATO says any attack on allied space assets that threaten the Euro-Atlantic region’s security or prosperity will risk triggering Article 5, the 1949 North Atlantic Treaty’s mutual defence clause.

North Korea says it is prepared for dialogue with the United States, but it is unclear what exactly North Korea is willing to discuss.  It is known that famine and devastation from the Chinese Corona Virus grip the country.

Russia threatens to attack British ships if Britain sails ships into international waters claimed by Russia and says NATO will not respond due to fears of igniting World War III.  Additionally, Russia has formally exited the Open Skies Treaty.

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.

For immediate updates, go to Breaking news and important information can be found on the DEFCON Warning System community forum and on the DEFCON Twitter feed @DEFCONWSAlerts. You may also subscribe to the DEFCON Warning System mailing list. Note that Twitter updates may be subject to delays. The next scheduled update is 2 P.M. Pacific Time, August 1st, 2021. 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.
