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 the 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 runs 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.

Well here we go.

Code: Select all

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.

Well this is a good job done by DEFCON systems. Communication and knowledge of threat against a country is one of the biggest resource and help that anyone could use as it can help in avoiding the "situations" that may arrive. I still don't understand why North Korea is going mindless and doing such things that is threatening the whole world. I will say it's sheer and pure stupidity.
