As an Australian, i myself am not surprised at the fact that an Australian Prime Minister at the time secretly agreed for the US to test new missiles close to the country's border, but i am a bit concerned. First and foremost, this was in the 80's, i can only imagine what type of crap noth the US and Australia are agreeing to now.

It is not for these powerful organisations to determine what Australians can and should know, it is for us to make that decision.

Such agreements are made regularly to test defences i'm sure
There's not really anything wrong with it except for it being under the rug
Truth is not many would accept it even though it may be quite normal
But then again people do nothing for real corruption everyday
I wouldn't call this huge news
Perhaps you could refresh MY memory on the last time the US agreed to let us here in Australia test fire OUR missiles against their US west coast ... I seem to have forgotten that agreement.
