The Current REAL WORLD AmRRON Communications Network Condition Level is:
*08 AUG 2017 UPDATE: *
///////REAL WORLD UPDATE//////NOT AN EXERCISE/////// Due to the increased probability of armed conflict with North Korea, which is now nuclear-capable and could strike American cities on the mainland, we are increasing our readiness levels and the AmRRON Readiness Condition Level to 3. This means that while disruptions to conventional communications are by no means imminent, there is an increased probability. Trump warns North Korea threats 'will be met with fire and fury' * President Donald Trump warns that threats from North Korea "will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen." * North Korea has successfully created a miniaturized nuclear weapon that can fit in its missiles, according to NBC News and The Washington Post. *Note from JJS: * This is significant. President Trump is warning that these continued threats must stop and that he is prepared to carry out military action. Previous attitudes and responses indicate that North Korea will continue to agitate the US and other nations. Essentially, Trump must make good on his word. If he does not, it will only embolden North Korea and increase the danger to US citizens and interests, as well as our allies. Essentially, it appears the time for talking and negotiating are over. We'll see. Boy Scout's motto: "Be Prepared" ------------------------------------ *Additionally, the previous open source (OSINT) information which prompted us to raise to Level-4 several weeks ago is still relevant:* SEE BELOW

This is a precautionary measure to raise awareness, based on the
A) North Korean capital city of Pyongyang is calling for an evacuation
at this time
B) Foreign Journalists told to prepare for “big event” (on Thursday?)
C) High potential for EMP-capable satellite(s)
On Wednesday former CIA director James Woolsey and Dr. Peter Vincent Pry
