Lowered to safest level as US and Russia tensions ease
This is the DEFCON Warning System. Alert status for 8 P.M., Thursday, November 10th, 2016. Condition code is Green. DEFCON 5.
There are currently no imminent nuclear threats against the United States at this time.
The United States took a tentative step toward a more isolationist policy with its recent presidential election.
The Defcon alert system, which is used by the US military to gauge the threat of nuclear war against the US based on world events, has just lowered the threat level to 5: The lowest level.
The level had been raised to level 3 in recent weeks due to tensions between the US and Russia reaching an all-time high, which was the highest level it had been at since 9/11.
Since the unexpected victory of Donald Trump in the Presidential Election, the threat of a nuclear war has reduced thanks to the positive relationship between Trump and Russian President, Vladimir Putin.
The Express reports: The Defcon Warning System, a private organization which monitors world events and estimates the nuclear threat against America, is now at Level 5 - its lowest possible state.
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
