DEFCON Warning System – Update 8/1/21

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

There are currently no imminent nuclear threats at this time.

Japan suggests it may assist Taiwan militarily in the event of a Chinese attack.  In response, China has revised its declared No First Use policy and has threatened to use nuclear weapons against Japan if Japan sends military to Taiwan.  The DEFCON Warning System warns other countries that China’s No First Use policy is propaganda only and they will use nuclear weapons in an engagement regardless of any declared No Use policy.

The United States is developing a hypersonic missile with a claimed range of 1,725 miles, further reducing the time a country must decide if it is under nuclear attack.

Russia has threatened to attack U.K. ships if the United Kingdom sails ships into Russian-claimed waters in the Black Sea and is involving itself in Belarus internal problems.  North and South Korea restart hotline and pledge to improve ties.  In good news, the UAE has opened an embassy in Israel.

Meanwhile, another missile silo field is detected in China as the country increases its ICBM capacity.

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, September 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.
