BREAKING NE:--just got a heads up that the U.S. military has gone to threat level RED and the Air Force reserve base in Portland (OR) has been put on Stand-by.

This is UNCONFIRMED so far---waiting on confirmation from multiple sources. Anyone else have any input???

DEFCON's current status is blue. Unless, the west coast and/or Hawaii is not under it's watch, or the website hasn't been updated; it looks like this id a hoax
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 22365009


According to the wiki article each branch of the military can have its defcon level raised independent of one another. Makes sense. If this were about NK, the Army's defcon level most likely wouldn't change, it would be the USAF since they (and the Navy) are the nation's first responders. But I hear the Navy has no carrier groups near NK at the moment? And also, the Navy doesn't have stealth aircraft capable of long range bombing deep within NK territory. Remember in '91 when the B2 stealths flew from the Midwest USA to Iraq and dropped the first bombs?

just thought I'd put my two cents in but the Defcon status is not something that is every publicly known, only a few in the highest chain of the US military command structure have that knowledge.

If any of this were true you would see massive movement in Guam as well as Japan,there would most likly be a communications black out including the internet (for OPSEC)

Movement would also occur at Elmendorff in Alaska and Perl harbor.

But none of this has happened so i would say it's safe to raise the BS flag at this point.

I see where you're going with this, but I think I respectfully disagree. Something tells me that the levels have to do with a direct threat to the USA as a whole. Hence the elevated levels during the Cuban missile crisis and 9/11. The defcon system was developed back in the days of the cold war and SAC (strategic air command) when the entire country was at risk of nuclear attack by the soviets. I think the system remains, but the rules have changed/adapted since '59 with the end of the Cold War and the risk/threat of attack on the nation as a whole has been drastically reduced. That's why I think nowadays the POTUS and the joint chiefs have the option to raise the defcon level of individual branches depending on the relevancy of the threat.

DEFCON Color Red = "Next step nuclear war. Forces ready to deploy and engage in less than six hours."

I'm assuming this is what is meant by "threat level RED."

Just an FYI...

DEFCON Warning System does NOT represent US Military

by DEFCONWarningSystem

We feel the need to re-emphasize that the DEFCON Warning System does NOT represent the alert condition of any branch of the US military. We are a private organization and we assess current events and issue our own evaluation of the situation.

Any website which links the DEFCON Warning System to the current alert status of any branch of the military is mistaken.

Currently it is Still Blue at #4

Re: ***UNCONFIRMED*** US Military has gone to THREAT LEVEL RED?????
B2 are too few in numbers to really do anything beyond a very limited number of precision strikes. The real hammer is the thousands of Tomahawks. The Norks will never see those coming. When the big attack comes, the US will have literally one thousand come in a single wave and detonate simultaneously. The Nork government and every ounce of military leadership vaporized in an instant. Five minutes after the dust and noise settles, North Korea will no longer exist as an entity. That quick and that fast. The US stunned the Russisns and Chinese ten years ago with demolition of Iraqi military who at the time was one of the biggest. They were no slouch, but folded like a accordion. The communists have only slightly improved their tech and abilities since then while the US has jumped ahead even further. Do not confuse domestic debt bullshit with military prowess. The US has tech that simply cannot be beaten.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 22896380


Radar fire controlled AAA > tomahawks. And the Norks have shitoads of it, especially around Pyongyang. And when I mean shitloads, I mean it's the most heavilly fortified area on the planet when it comes to anti-air systems.

So they'd better do one HELL of a SEAD first!
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 37025662


Soviet era radar guided 23mm and 57mm AAA and the like would be easily, and I mean easily jammed and could only resort to optical guidance which is essentially a man trying to keep a crosshairs on something that has zipped by seconds before be even realized something was coming. There is almost no chance, beyond fluke, that anything more than a fraction of one percent could be shot down. The chances are so low as to be neligible.

Preparedness Pro :

Um, obviously on matters such as this, the sources I have are kept confidential as most of the time when I get this kind of info it's NOT authorized. When you're on here for a while you'll note that you can always rely that I'm providing quality information on instances such as this.

U.S. military does not use "red alert" for exercises. Also, Red alert IS DHS designation, not military--that will tell you that the initial info came from an off-site source.

As noted, USAF has been put on standby status.

Even military exercises don't use "Red Alert" status.

U.S. military does not use "red alert" for exercises. Also, Red alert IS DHS designation, not military--that will tell you that the initial info came from an off-site source.

If is was a news story, I'd be posting a link. But when I get direct tips like this, I must keep those sources confidential.

that indicates high alert that typically emphasizes that a viable threat is imminent.
confirmed off site, waiting for on site confirmation

UPDATE: Confirmed by two other sources, including one I really rely upon however I have NOT received an ON SITE confirmation yet.
