AMERICA’S nuclear warning system DEFCON has been upgraded as tensions between the US and North Korea reach a critical boiling point.

Last week US President Donald Trump threatened the hermit state with “fire and fury” should it continue to test missiles and issue threats to the West.

Now, the Defcon warning system, which has monitored and assessed nuclear threats against the US for more than 33 years, has been upped from its lowest level to level four.

A report said while there does not appear to be an “imminent nuclear threat”, there are events which are beginning to require close attention.

The statement said: “Tensions between North Korea and the United States are reaching almost a fever pitch, with new threats coming out every day.

“Most of the rhetoric is bluster, however, and diplomatic communications continue to be open, though through backdoor channels.

“There have been no military movements of concern at this time, and there does not appear to be any sign of an impending attack by either side.

“Nevertheless, the threat level remains high and is concerning.

“Each side is taking very seriously the threats made by the other, and both the United States and North Korea are currently on the defensive, with North Korea expecting some kind of action.”

It comes just days after its previous report on August 1 which saw the DEFCON level was ranked at five – its lowest.

The Defense readiness Condition (DEFCON) is an alert system used by the United States Armed Forces, and is widely regarded as a reliable gage of global tensions.

The level has fluctuated over recent months, as tensions in the Korean peninsula continue to run high while Washington refuses to rule out a military strike against the dictatorship in response to any attacks.

And it was revealed Mr Trump has a “dramatic solution” if diplomacy fails, according to his former White House director of communications Anthony Scaramucci.
