Last week US President Donald Trump threatened to “totally destroy” North Korea in his apocalyptic debut speech at the United Nations.

In response North Korea supreme leader Kim Jong-un vowed to “tame” Trump “with fire” in an unprecedented personal statement.

With tensions reaching alarming levels, US nuclear warning system DEFCON remains at level 4, according to an announcement on September 24, 2017.

DEFCON, meaning the defence readiness condition, is an alert system used by the US military to indicate the risk of nuclear war.

The system has five levels of readiness, or states of alert, increasing in severity from DEFCON 5 – the least severe – to DEFCON 1 – the most severe.

The official DEFCON level is understood to be 5 – the lowest state of readiness.

But “private intelligence” website DEFCON claims the threat has been upgraded to level 4, meaning “above normal readiness”.

Although there are no “imminent nuclear threats against the US”, DEFCON insists “there are events occurring in the world theatre which require closer monitoring”.

The most severe of those threats is said to be North Korea, whose arsenal of nuclear weapons and missiles has brought the world to the brink of war.

The communist nation stunned the world after testing a hydrogen bomb five times more powerful than the Hiroshima nuke that killed 135,000 during World War 2.

North Korea has the capability to fire a H-bomb tipped missile that can reach the US, according to DEFCON.

A post from the website reads: “North Korea has shown a propaganda video of an H-bomb being loaded onto a missile, though there is question as to whether it is real and if it can actually fly.

“South Korea believes that North Korea can mount a nuclear warhead on a missile and the United States believes North Korea has up to sixty nuclear bombs.”
