Between Feb 6-7, AlertsUSA issued the following
related Flash message to subscriber mobile devices:

2/7 - Flwg successful satellite launch, S. Korean intelligence rpts N. Korea preparing for fifth nuclear test. AlertsUSA monitoring...

2/6a - BREAKING: N. Korea launches long-range rocket launch detected. AlertsUSA monitoring...

2/6b - N. Korean rocket passes through Japanese airspace near Okinawa. No Japanese air defense response. Add'l alerts only if situation warrants.

What You Need To Know

On Saturday, AlertsUSA subscribers were some of the first in the nation to learn of North Korea's launch of a long range missile in defiance of UN sanctions barring it from using ballistic missile technology. This particular launch, the first since 2012, successfully inserted an object into orbit after overflying Japan's southern Okinawa islands. Japan had previously warned it would shoot down the rocket if it entered their airspace, but did not do so. U.S. defense sources indicate, at least publically, that the object has managed to achieve stability in orbit but is not transmitting any signals.

Readers will recall that two weeks ago we warned the launch was imminent and that U.S. military forces and those of regional governments were on high alert. Between that time and the launch the U.S. moved a variety of missile defense and other conventional assets into the area in order to track and potentially respond to the event.

Why is any of this important to us here in America? Because Western governments believe these missile launches are intended to refine the ability to deliver nuclear weapons (which the North already has developed and repeatedly threatened to use) either to orbit, or as a standard intercontinental ballistic missile shot. Additionally, one of N. Koreas most faithful supporters and customers of their missile technologies as well as other capabilities is Iran. South Korean intelligence sources have previously reported Iranian engineers present at the N. Korean site during previous launches.

Fast forward to this week and tensions are spiking on the Peninsula. In a tense standoff that started with N. Korea's nuclear test last month, followed Saturday's long-range rocket launch, S. Korea has announced the closure of the Kaesong joint industrial park, the last major symbol of Korean cooperation, and has cut off water and power to border areas. N Korea has ejected all S. Korean workers, seized the companies' assets and vowed to militarize the park.

Perhaps most concerning is that communication hotlines between the two militaries have been cut. Late this week the U.S announced it had deployed at least one additional Patriot missile battery to S. Korea ahead of talks next week about deploying an American ballistic missile interceptor system known as THAAD (Terminal High Altitude Area Defense) on the Korean Peninsula..

AlertsUSA continues to monitor ongoing developments in this region and will immediately notify service subscribers of changes in the overall threat picture as events warrant.

Intelligence Officials:
ISIS Determined to Strike U.S. This Year

Feb 13, 2016
On Feb 9th, AlertsUSA issued the following
related Flash message to subscriber mobile devices:

2/9 - Dir. of National Intelligence warns Islamic State likely to attempt attacks on US this year. Adds group is infiltrating refugee flow to move across borders.

What You Need To Know

Multiple warnings were issued by government officials this week regarding growing terror threats to the homeland.

On Tues, AlertsUSA subscribrs were also notified via SMS messages of a warning issued by the Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, within which he stated that ISIS was likely to attempt direct attacks on the U.S. in the coming year and that the group was infiltrating refugees escaping from Iraq and Syria to move across international borders.

Also this week, Marine Corps Lieutenant General Vincent Stewart, Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, warned the Islamic State is likely to increase the pace and lethality of its transnational attacks in an effort to provoke a harsh reaction from the West.

Additionally, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson warned this week that terror groups remain focused on targeting aviation. His comments come on the heels of a Feb 2nd attack within which a suicide bomber used a sophisticated bomb built into a laptop computer to blow a gaping hole in a Daallo Airlines jet forcing an emergency landing in Mogadishu, Somalia. In that attack, the attacker appeared to have been sucked out of the hole to his death. At least 20 people are under arrest in connection with the bombing, including two men caught on surveillance video handing the laptop to the suspect.

AlertsUSA continues to monitor the overall domestic and international threat environment and will immediately notify service subscribers via SMS messages of new alerts, warnings and advisories or any developments which signal a change the overall threat picture for American citizens as events warrant.
