Why is the US in DEFCON 4?
Green is good? DEFCON 4 translates to “above normal readiness” in terms of military status, and includes increased intelligence watch and strengthened security measures. To put that in more useful terms, it means you have to be a bit more ready to submit your team. Thats DEFCON 4.
Is Defcon 5 GOOD OR BAD?
DEFCON 5 means no danger, DEFCON 1 is a crisis! In some movies, the phrase Defcon 5 or Defense Readiness Condition 5 is used to refer to the highest state of alert for the United States Armed Forces. This is incorrect, and this trope is about the misuse of these terms.
