DEFCON 3 NO JOKE -

Postby Dantesinferno » Thu Apr 11, 2013 11:08 pm

http://www.defconwarningsystem.com/

This is the DEFCON Warning System. Alert status for 2:45 P.M. Thursday, April 11th, 2013. Condition Yellow. DEFCON 3. Condition Yellow. DEFCON 3. Condition Yellow. DEFCON 3.

There are currently no imminent nuclear threats against the United States at this time, however the situation is considered fluid and can change rapidly.

The Pentagon reports that North Korea probably has nuclear weapons that can be mounted on ballistic missiles. This is a very significant admission by the United States and a dangerous change to the Korean situation. Currently, North Korea has moved its mid-range Musudan missile to east coast and has prepared it for launch. Additionally, North Korea has dedicated more facilities at its Yongbyon complex to nuclear weapons work. In response to rising tensions, China has mobilized its military and is massing near border with North Korea. South Korea has vowed a swift response to any attack by the North. While any response would be couched within political and diplomatic realities, this represents yet another step toward possible miscalculation in the Korean theatre.

Many believe that North Korea will launch their test missile on or about April 15. Japan has instructed its armed forces to shoot down any North Korean missile that heads toward its territory.

The United States has positioned two destroyers off the coast of Korea in response to the escalating situation. Additionally, the U.S. has expressed fears that North Korea has ability to launch a high-altitude nuclear device over the United States, resulting in the destruction of the electrical grid. Many analysts do not believe North Korea has the ability to do this yet, however it is only a matter of time.

The United States has grown concerned that they have contributed to the escalating tensions by matching threat for threat and are claiming that they are going to take steps to try and dial-down the temperature, though they have left unsaid exactly how they intend to do that.

Meanwhile, Russia is practicing bombing run against U.S. assets in Asia while Iran has publicly has backed down somewhat from its nuclear programme, claiming to remain within the limits demanded by Israel. Many see this as simply another delay tactic during an election cycle. The International Atomic Energy Agency chief suspects that Iran has pressed ahead with nuclear activity applicable to development of weapons.

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. This system serves the Kettle Falls area of Northeast Washington. Official news sources will have radiation readings for your area.

For immediate updates, go to www.defconwarningsystem.com. Breaking news and important information can be found on the DEFCON Warning System message board and on the DEFCON Twitter feed DEFCONWS. You may also subscribe to the YouTube channel DefconWarningSystem, Note that Twitter and YouTube updates may be subject to delays. The next scheduled update is 2 P.M. Pacific Time, April 18th, 2013. 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.

North Korea seemed to edge even closer to nuclear war, with one China expert saying there is an 80 per cent chance of missiles being fired.

However reporters in South Korea say it is "business as usual" with the locals there talking more about pop sensation Psy's follow-up song to the smash hit Gangnam Style. South Korean officials believe any missile launch will come on Monday to celebrate the birthday of the country's late founder, Kim Il Sung.




6am (AEST): President Barak Obama has told North Korea to "end belligerence" and says he will protect the United States and its interests with "all necessary steps".
South Korea

Some 200 South Korean conservative activists demonstrate with placards denouncing North korea for heightening tension on the Korean peninsula during a rally in Seoul.

But Obama also says that no one wants to see a conflict on the Korean Peninsula.

"Now's the time for North Korea to end the kind of belligerent approach that they've been taking and to try to lower temperatures. Nobody wants to see a conflict on the Korean Peninsula.

"We will continue to work to try to resolve some of those issues diplomatically even, as I indicated to the Secretary-general, that the United States will take all necessary steps to protect its people and to meet our obligations under our alliances in the region,'' Obama said.

North Korea ratcheted up its threats against the US after the UN Security Council levied new economic sanctions on the isolated nation. The penalties were in response to a February rocket launch.

Obama spoke alongside UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon (bahn kee-moon) after the two met in the Oval Office.

5:15am (AEST): North Korea is poised to launch as many as five missiles from its east coast, South Korean intelligence officials said.

"There are signs the North could fire off Musudan missiles any time soon," an unidentified intelligence source in Seoul told the state-run Yonhap news agency.

Others think the military exercise is just part of the festivities planned for a national holiday on Monday marking the birthday of the country's late founder, Kim Il Sung.

"There is no threat, said Xu Guangyu, a senior military analyst in Beijing. The grandson is using the missiles to salute his grandfather and celebrate his power.

4:20am (AEST): China appears "frustrated" with volatile rhetoric from its North Korean allies but is eager to see the regime stay in power as a "buffer state" on its border, US spy chief James Clapper said Thursday.

The national intelligence director told lawmakers North Korea's young leader Kim Jong-Un, who has threatened nuclear war with the United States, was testing China's patience.

"China is under new leadership and the indication we have is that China is rather frustrated with the behaviour and belligerent rhetoric of Kim Jong-Un," Mr Clapper told the House Intelligence Committee.

PROPAGANDA TURNS HUMOUR WHEN LOST IN TRANSLATION.

3:30am (AEST): The Washington Post says that Google searches for North Korea in the US are seven times higher than the last peak, which was during the country's 2006 nuclear test. More Americans are Googling North Korea than Beyonce or Barack Obama, two of the most consistently popular searches.

Pew estimates that 36 per cent of Americans are following the news very closely, which is unusual for an international news story. About 56 per cent said the US should take the threats very seriously.

However, despite Americans reading more about North Korea, Pew found 47 per cent believe the country has a nuclear missile that could hit the US (which it does not).

3:13am (AEST): UK foreign secretary William Hague says the G8 (US, Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Canada and Russia) would not be intimidated by North Korea.

"If there is a missile test, we will advocate further measures to the UN security council," he said.

2:48am (AEST): CNN's Australian reporter Anna Coren says it is "business as usual" in South Korea as it faces the prospect of war with North Korea.

Coren said South Koreans seem more interested in the imminent release of pop artist Psy's new song Gentleman than they are about the prospect of war.

1.54am (AEST): One of China's leading experts on North Korea has warned there is an 80 per cent chance of war breaking out on the Korean Peninsula.

"There is a 70 to 80 per cent chance that a war will happen because North Korean leader Kim Jong-un may want to use this opportunity to force a reunification of the Korean Peninsula," Zhang Liangui, a professor of international strategic research at the Communist Party's Central Party School, told the South China Morning Post.

Professor Zhang said China needed to do more to get nuclear weapons out of North Korean hands.

"The longer we delay fixing it, the more difficult the situation will become," he said. "China needs to seriously consider how to tackle the problem."

THE TWO FACES OF KIM JONG-UN.

1.11am (AEST): Top US intelligence officials say North Korea's new leader is trying to show the world and his people that he is in charge, rather than trying to trigger military conflict.

Director of National Intelligence James Clapper told Congress that his analysts believe North Korean leader Kim Jong-un is using rhetoric to gain recognition, and to manoeuvre the international community into concessions in future negotiations.

CIA director John Brennan says judging his actions is made tougher because he hasn't been in power long.

Mr Clapper says the intelligence community believes the North would only use nuclear weapons to preserve the Kim regime, but says they do not know how the Kim regime defines that.

Both men say China is best able to influence North Korea to tone down its rhetoric.

12.50am (AEST): Former US Vice President Dick Cheney has given his fellow Republicans a dire warning on the ongoing crisis in North Korea.

Were in deep doo doo, Mr Cheney told Republican lawmakers, according to a leadership aide who spoke to CNN.

12.22am (AEST): Bloomberg News provides some analysis of North Korea's propaganda machine which has described Hillary Clinton as "funny lady" who is by no means intelligent and describes the continental US as being similar to a boiled pumpkin.

North Korea reportedly warns Tokyo would be first target of nuclear attack
DEBKAfile Special Report April 12, 2013, 9:00 PM (GMT+02:00)

Tokyo, Japan faces North Korean threat




US and Japanese sources reported Friday, April 12, that North Korea has warned Japan that Tokyo would be the first target if Pyongyang decided to launch a nuclear attack. This was in response to Japan’s orders to its armed forces to shoot down any North Korean missile that heads toward its territory. Taking the threat seriously, Japan has deployed Patriot interceptors around its capital.
Japanese defense officials refused to confirm reports about their naval alert saying they do not want to “show their cards” to North Korea.
On arrival in Seoul Friday, US Secretary of State John Kerry said: “We will stand with South Korea and Japan against these threats. And we will defend ourselves," he said. He rejected the Pentagon's assessment that Pyongyang had probably developed nuclear weapons which could be mounted on ballistic missiles, saying that North Korea had still not developed or fully tested the nuclear capabilities needed for this step.

The White House again insisted Friday that North Korea had not demonstrated a capability to deploy a nuclear-armed missile, evidently intent on having the last word in the debate with the Pentagon on this matter.

North Korea vows 'sledgehammer blows' against South

Pyongyang promises retaliation if Seoul does not apologise for Monday's anti-North Korea protests

http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2013/ap ... lows-south


(CNN) -- North Korea turned up the temperature yet another degree on its neighbors Monday, warning that it would not give any advance notice before attacking South Korea.

"Our retaliatory action will start without any notice from now," the North said in a statement carried by its official news agency, KCNA.

North Korea said it was responding to insults from the"puppet authorities" in the South, claiming that there had been a rally against North Korea in Seoul, the South Korean capital. It called the rally a "monstrous criminal act."

North Korea said last month it was withdrawing from the armistice that put the Korean War on hold in 1953.

This is the DEFCON Warning System. Alert status for 2 P.M. Thursday, April 18th, 2013. Condition Yellow. DEFCON 3. Condition Yellow. DEFCON 3. Condition Yellow. DEFCON 3.

There are currently no imminent nuclear threats against the United States at this time, however the situation is considered fluid and can change rapidly.

The United States has been backing away from statements that North Korea has nuclear-capable missiles. The DEFCON Warning System has found, however, such statements to be carefully phrased and thus continues to advise the public to assume that North Korea has deliverable weapons until more hard data becomes available. Additionally, we caution the public against complacency or burn out from constant and continual North Korean threats. The situation in the Korean theatre remains hostile and the chance for misinterpretation, miscalculation, or error remains extremely high. While North Korea is unlikely to initiate any direct offensive action at this time, the psychological profile of North Korea also indicates a propensity to react with extreme force against any perceived threat, real or imagined. Therefore, the DEFCON alert condition will likely remain at Yellow through the end of April.

Tactically, North Korea has lowered its missile out of firing position and there remain no troop movements by North Korea indicating an imminent attack.

The United States is offering China a concession on U.S. missile defense as a way to gain China's support against North Korea. Additionally, the United States wishes to work with China on cyber-security, the same China that has been hacking into the United States for years.

Learning from the events transpiring in North Korea, Iran has now issued a warning that an attack on its facilities could lead to nuclear war. An interesting statement considering Iran's constant denial that their work is non-military. Additionally, Iran is to meet with Niger, a major Uranium producer.

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. This system serves the Kettle Falls area of Northeast Washington. Official news sources will have radiation readings for your area.
