Entry: DEFCON (n.)
In context: "Both AMNAT and SOVWAR go DEFCON 2 to DEFCON 4."
Definition: Okay, so there is a lot of military jargon there, but I've heard of DEFCON enough I wanted to take a look.
A defense readiness condition (DEFCON) is an alert posture used by the
United States Armed Forces. The DEFCON system was developed by the
Joint Chiefs of Staff and unified and specified combatant commands.
It prescribes five graduated levels of readiness (or states of alert)
for the U.S. military, and increase in severity from DEFCON 5 (least
severe) to DEFCON 1 (most severe) to match varying military situations
