DEFCON Warning System Alert for 2/2/2014

This is the DEFCON Warning System. Alert status for 8 P.M. Sunday, February 2nd, 2014. 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.

Under the recent deal with Iran and Western powers, Iran claims that “no facility will be closed; enrichment will continue, and qualitative and nuclear research will be expanded. All research into a new generation of centrifuges will continue.” Additionally, Iran has stated that the agreement does not require any dismantling of equipment. While it is difficult to separate fact from diplomatic posturing, it is the DEFCON Warning System’s assessment of the deal that this position of Iran’s is essentially correct and the deal will do nothing to curb any atomic research Iran is conducting. Nevertheless, the deal has gone through, Iran has let some minor inspections take place, and some previously frozen funds are being released to Iran, whose economy has been battered by the sanctions. Still, according to U.S. Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, Iran now has the capability to produce a nuclear weapon, though he also states that such a move would be detected.

Under the new START pact with Russia, the United States is to begin reducing sub-based launchers, while there has been some contention in Congress that they have not been timely informed of Russian violations of weapons treaties. Russia, meanwhile, plans to boost its navy by 40 new vessels in 2014, with further acquisitions in later years. The United States is to launch radar blimps over Washington D.C. to detect incoming cruise missiles.

China is testing hypersonic delivery systems, designed for fast delivery of weapons and survivability against defense. The country has also released images of an intercontinental ballistic missile which experts believe has enough range to reach the United States. China is also to begin regular air patrols in disputed island territory and has begun warning military aircraft entering it’s self-proclaimed air defense zone. Related to China events, the U.S. Air Force Space Commander warns that U.S. satellites are vulnerable to attack and jamming.

While the United States will be sending additional troops and tanks to South Korea, the U.S. is scaling back wargames with South Korea, officials claiming that a reduced military force is in response to conciliatory gestures made by North Korea in recent weeks.

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 northern Steven County, Washington and Hutchinson County, Texas. Official news sources will have radiation readings for your area.

This concludes this broadcast of the DEFCON Warning System
