This is the DEFCON Warning System. Alert status for 8 P.M., Thursday, October 13th, 2016. Condition code is Yellow. DEFCON 3.
Tensions between Russia and the United States have reached levels beyond the cold war in the recent week.
The situation between Russia and the United States is extremely fluid at the moment. In all likelihood as dynamic as at times during the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962. Mainstream media has taken a very serious tone concerning the change from diplomatic to military options between NATO and Russia. CNN stated, â€œIt’s not a new Cold War. It’s not even a deep chill. It’s an outright conflict.â€ On October 10th Former Soviet Premier Gorbachev is quoted as saying, â€œI think the world has reached a dangerous point.â€â€¨â€¨There are signs of a potential growing large scale conflict in nearly every geopolitical hotspot including Syria, Yemen, Ukraine, and the Philippines. Syria is seen as one of the trigger points to the renewed tensions between the United States and Russia. The United States has also accused Russia of a cyberattack and meddling with the US Presidential Election. White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest promised on Tuesday that the U.S. would deliver a â€œproportionalâ€ response to Russiaâ€™s alleged hacking of American computer systems. The US and Britain are also expected to weigh into Syrian military options on Friday. This could increase tensions between the two superpowers to a greater extent.
Moreover, Houthi rebels on the South Coast of Yemen fired one anti-ship missile at the U.S.S. Mason on Sunday, and another on Wednesday. The Pentagon responded by firing 5 TLAM missiles at radar stations inside Yemen. Around this same time, Iran dispatched a fleet of ships to the area. The U.S.S. Eisenhower Carrier Strike Group has also been dispatched to the area.
At this time, the DEFCON Warning System feels that an increase to DEFCON 3 would be a prudent move. The situation is currently fluid with diplomatic ties strained and military threats coming from both sides. Russian media is reportedly telling its citizens to prepare for nuclear war. Russia has recently conducted civil defense drills and completed inspections of underground areas to house government officials and some civilians in the event of nuclear war. This is a very sensitive situation which has the potential to spiral out of control. It is recommended that all citizens learn the steps to be taken in the event of nuclear war. We will continue to bring updated information as we receive it.
The DEFCON Warning System is an analytical reporting organization which focuses on nuclear threats against the United States and offers an alert code to the public based on current events. 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.

This concludes this broadcast of the DEFCON Warning System.
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu held a visit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow on Thursday, where Netanyahu clarified that keeping the Golan Heights in Israeli hands is a “red line.”
At the start of their meeting, Netanyahu thanked Putin for the visit, saying “I very much appreciate your warm hosting, and I very much appreciate the ongoing contact between us.”
“I came here with one central goal – to strengthen the security coordination between us in order to prevent mishaps, misunderstands, unnecessary crashes,” he said, referring to how the Russian military is currently operating near Israel in Syria to prop up Bashar al-Assad’s regime.
Netanyahu noted that in their last meeting he presented Israel’s security policy on the northern border, explaining, “Israel has clear red lines for self-defense needs.”
“First, we act as best as we can in order to prevent a transfer of advanced weapons from Iran and Syria to Hezbollah in Lebanon. Secondly, we act in order to prevent the establishment of an additional terror front against us from the Golan Heights. These are red lines, and we will continue to protect them.”
The Prime Minister focused in on the Golan Heights, which has been in the news this week after on Sunday he held the first Cabinet meeting there since the region was liberated in the 1967 Six Day War. His meeting sparked an international backlash of condemnation, and in it he vowed that the Golan would always remain Israeli.
“Regarding the Golan Heights, we will not return to the days when they fired on our towns and our children from the peaks of the Golan,” Netanyahu told Putin on Thursday.
“Therefore, with an agreement or without an agreement, the Golan Heights will remain under Israeli sovereignty.”
Netanyahu’s declaration on the Golan Heights on Sunday led to condemnation from the EU, the US State Department, the Syrian regime which threatened to conquer the region militarily, and the Arab League which called to establish a special court against Israel on the matter. Netanyahu did however receive backing from Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz.
Passover in Moscow
In his meeting with Putin, Netanyahu noted that the visit was a chance to discuss bilateral issues even as the two sides mark 25 years of bilateral ties.
He particularly made mention of the matter of pensions for Israelis who immigrated from Russia, an issue which he said he hopes will be closed soon to provide aid for those who are eligible for a pension from Russia given their years of working there.
“I also want to thank you for the wishes on the Passover holiday,” said Netanyahu. “This is our holiday of freedom, and on the holiday all of the house of Israel will sit at the seder table including over a million Russian-speaking Israelis who are a living connection between our peoples.”
“I also would like to wish the Jews of Russia and all the house of Israel around the world a happy Passover holiday. I want to thank you again for your friendship, which is important for the interests of both our peoples.”
Netanyahu in his one-day Moscow visit was accompanied by Minister Ze’ev Elkin (Likud), the Israeli Air Force (IAF) commander, the deputy head of the National Security Council (NSC), the military secretary and the bureau chief.
The meeting follows a meeting between Putin and Qassem Soleimani, commander of Iran’s Quds Force special ops unit responsible for managing terror missions worldwide, against UN sanctions – as well as the early stages of Iran receiving the S-300 anti-aircraft missile system from Russia.

Embattled Syrian dictator Bashar Assad’s key ally, Russian President Vladimir Putin, may be preparing to turn his back on the Syrian president.
According to the Al-Hayat pan-Arab newspaper in London, Russia has agreed to a long-standing demand of Syrian opposition forces that Assad be removed from power.
The report comes as negotiators representing Syrian rebels refused to consider even a transitional role for Assad in a proposed unity government.
Asaad al-Zoabi, one of the negotiators, insisted that “Assad should not remain for even one hour after the formation” of a transitional government.
The Al-Hayat report cites a diplomat in the UN Security Council who leaked the basic outline of the agreement.
While the US and Russia have agreed on the principle that Assad should be removed from power and sent into exile outside of Syria, no specifics regarding the implementation of the plan have been determined.
Earlier this month, Russia abruptly announced it would withdraw its military forces from Syria, much to the surprise of international observers.
On March 17th a senior Russian general told to Pravda newspaper that the pullout would be completed within days.

With the recent announcement on Twitter that all Russian Embassy employees had left the London Embassy (disputed bythis Washington Post story) combined with new reports that the Russian flag is no longer flying over the Kremlin as seen in screenshots above/below, speculation is now rampant about either a Vladimir Putin death announcement, the birth of his son or an announcement of the beginning of World War 3 to the Russian people, after lethal aid was confirmed as being shipped to the Ukraine, while the American people remain uninformed as the mysterious disappearance of Vladimir Putin suddenly becomes the biggest story on the internet as summed up in the 1st video below. The secret arrival of North Korea’s Prime Minister in Russia on Friday for a ‘surprise visit’ has only compounded the mystery.
NEW! Radical ‘Forces Of A Big Blood’ To Take Over Russia As Putin Coup Rumors Fly Wildly! Expert On Russia: ‘Pray For Us All’
In a story now confirmed by the websites Western Journalism and DebkaFile, Russian media has been told to stay in town as a huge announcement will be coming this weekend that no one should miss.
With Vladimir Putin death rumors filling the internet and now mainstream media, ANP has gotten access to pictures taken in Moscow on Friday that show preparation for something huge going on as big white trucks are driven into the city, one by one, and construction is now taking place at Red Square as seen in the twitter images above and below.
YouTube videographer Professor Doom1 has also put out the new video below, 2nd video, in which he shares with us the translated story from Vlasti.net about the warning from the Kremlin for the Russian media to stay in town this weekend as ahuge announcement is due.
Speculation on the reason for this huge announcement range from an announcement of WW3 to the Russian people to Putin’s death to the birth of his child to Putin coming clean on ‘what really happened on 9/11’ to claims of an upcoming ‘Pussy Riot’ concert to what some say is the most likely, the announcement that we are being visited by extraterrestrials.
While at this time ANP is unable to confirm what announcement will soon be made, we are keeping you up-to-date as this breaking story continues to develop. Videos and more below.
The sources said Moscow views Ukraine as critical to its geo-strategic posture to maintain a buffer zone between the Russian Federation and countries bordering Russia that belong to NATO.
The Russian president, leaving little doubt that the relationship between Russia and NATO is over, the sources said, will go ahead with deployment of the Iskander-M tactical ballistic missile system to counter Western anti-missile deployments.
Russia seems to be getting closer to American soil inch by inch even possibly trying to provoke our nation into a war. For around a year now, there has been a lot of movement of forces from Russia and China, at the least, ever-growing closer to America. Now just recently there were reports of Russian aircraft in close proximity to California yet the details of exactly how close was not revealed. Exactly how close are we towards the brink of World War 3?
