This is the DEFCON Warning System. Alert status for 11:30 A.M., Friday,
August 11th, 2017. Condition code is Blue. DEFCON 4.
There are currently no imminent nuclear threats against the United
States at this time, however there are events occurring in the world
theater which require closer monitoring.
Tensions between North Korea and the United States are reaching almost a
fever pitch, with new threats coming out every day. Most of the
rhetoric is bluster, however, and diplomatic communications continue to
be open, though through backdoor channels. There have been no military
movements of concern at this time, and there does not appear to be any
sign of an impending attack by either side.
Nevertheless, the threat level remains high and is concerning. Each side
is taking very seriously the threats made by the other, and both the
United States and North Korea are currently on the defensive, with North
Korea expecting some kind of action.
Later in August, South Korea and the United States will engage in
large-scale war games, which is certain to raise tensions even higher.
Additionally, North Korea is formulating plans to fire missiles near
Guam, overshooting Japan airspace.
United States intelligence believes North Korea has succeeded in
miniaturizing a nuclear warhead that can fit inside its missiles. This
places the United States itself in danger of a direct nuclear attack,
which the U.S. has stated it will never allow. China has stated through
its State-run publication that it would remain neutral should North
Korea start a war, but has also said it would come to North Korea's aid
should the U.S. start a war. This is likely China's last effort to warn
either side from provocation.
The world, however, is showing signs that it believe a conflict is
coming and is taking sides, with some areas beginning to prepare their
citizens in the event of a nuclear attack.
