About | Military Readiness Alerts & Nuclear & Terror Threats
Advisories & Alerts | Follow On Twitter
Defcon Level monitors military readiness, terror threats as well as nuclear threats to the United States, and to the world globally. Since we base our defcon status levels on both military readiness and nuclear threat risk factors, our alert level does not always indicate risk of nuclear war since both factors are tied together.
For example, if we were to be at risk for a nuclear war the United States military readiness would be raised by default, the same as if we had a terror threat or any other kind of threat. For this reason, our level is an overall indicator for military readiness rather than simply how close we are to a nuclear war.
Please read our disclaimer for more information about who we are and what we monitor. If you have questions about the type of threats that we monitor, the defcon level status or anything else, post them in our growing Facebook Community where we value maturity and respectful communication.
