Friday, April 12, the US raised its nuclear alert status to DEFCON 3, Condition Yellow (out of 5 levels), stating “There are currently no imminent nuclear threats against the United States at this time, however the situation is considered fluid and can change rapidly.”
China has mobilized its military and is massing near the border with North Korea. This step was taken after North Korea placed a mid-range Musudan missile ready to launch on its east coast and its “dedication of more facilities at the Yongbon complex to nuclear weapons work.” According to some sources in Washington, the Chinese military mobilization is not directed at deterring Pyongyang but as support for North Korea’s steps.
The long-standing reassurances that North Korea cannot fit one of its crude nuclear warheads into a long-range missile suddenly grew much less reassuring on Thursday, as the Defense Intelligence Agency told a House Armed Services Committee hearing: “DIA [Defense Intelligence Agency] assesses with moderate confidence the North currently has nuclear weapons capable of delivery by ballistic missiles, however the reliability will be low.”
Additionally, the North Koreans have been sharing advanced missile technology with Iran. Joint Chiefs chairman General Martin Dempsey was reportedly “taken aback” by the revelation of North Korean ballistic nuclear weapons during House Armed Services testimony.
Recently we posted an article on an old Benedictine prophecy regarding the possible devastation of the east coast of the US by two nations, prophetically called a Lion and Tiger, which we think may be Iran – the Lion, and North Korea – the Tiger. We also believe the presence of China could be prophetic.
