This is the DEFCON Warning System. Alert status for 8 P.M. Thursday, September 10th, 2015. Condition Green. DEFCON 5. Condition Green. DEFCON 5. Condition Green. DEFCON 5.

There are currently no imminent nuclear threats against the United States at this time.

The rhetoric surrounding North and South Korea has toned down back to normal levels. While we expect another nuclear test by North Korea in the near future, it seems that the recent tensions have abated. The Koreas remain a flashpoint so we will continue to monitor and provide updates as necessary. The danger of a military escalation however is no longer an immediate threat.

During this time, Russia has made additional moves to support the government of Syria, sending boots on the ground, prompting a warning from the United States that such a move could lead to a confrontation with coalition forces.  Russia has also finally agreed to deliver S-300 anti-aircraft weapons to Iran and is expanding its presence in the Baltic regions. NATO, on the other hand, plans to cut back patrols in the area and is United States is to removing Patriot missiles from Turkey.

Debate in the United States Congress over the Iranian deal seems to indicate that Congress will not block the measure, and the U.S. will follow through with its promises at least for the next year and a half, allowing Iran to continue nuclear research and development nearly unabated.

According to audits, the United States is suppressing information regarding Russian violations of weapons treaty.  Swinging over to China, the U.S. is sending advanced bombers to Guam in a show of strength to China while the  Pentagon announces development of war plans to defend against Russian and Chinese attacks on U.S. satellites.

China has begun research on floating fortresses: small man-built islands which can house airstrips, docks, and even complete bases. Reports indicate that China is developing a liquid-fueled missile capable of striking targets anywhere on Earth including the United States.  Additionally, Chinese military ships have been spotted operating in Bering Sea off Alaska for the first time. China has issued a pledge to cut 300 thousand troops to show that it is not an expansionist threat, however advances in technology reduce the need for foot soldiers, plus it has not given up on either Taiwan or the South China Sea expansion.

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. 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 message board and on the DEFCON Twitter feed DEFCONWS. You may also subscribe to the YouTube channel DefconWarningSystem and the DEFCON Warning System mailing list. Note that Twitter and YouTube updates may be subject to delays. The next scheduled update is 8 P.M. Pacific Time, November 1st, 2015. 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.
