North Korea directs missiles towards Australia


www.smh.com.au

NORTH KOREA'S forthcoming missile launch will be aimed towards South-East Asia and Australia for the first time, the US has warned.

The warning was delivered in person yesterday to the Foreign Affairs Minister, Bob Carr, by a senior official in the Obama Administration, Kurt Campbell, during a visit to Sydney.

"If the missile test proceeds as North Korea has indicated, our judgment is that it will impact in an area roughly between Australia, Indonesia and the Philippines,"

"The North Korean nuclear and long-range missile plans represent a real and credible threat to the security of the region and to Australia."


So, a missile planned for next month will be shot towards/in between Australia, the Phillipenes and Indonesia, according to the US. That doesn't leave a lot of room for it to hit the ocean. I think that if Japan doesn not shoot it down, Australia should.

The USA should shoot it down with either a airborn laser system or an Ageis class cruiser .

That's what the papers and the US administration states. Where is the proof? Should someone perhaps ask the N Koreans if this is the case?

No we do not. I was looking into it a couple of months ago, and came across a Defence Brochure - information pack, and a huge PDF. the brochure didn't have anything interesting, but the PDF on the other hand had numerous interesting stuff. Australia feels it doesn't need a MDS because we are not in danger, if memory serves me, they are planning for one in 7 years or something.

I hope not, they're a huge waste of money. We have ways to bring down missles if know they are going to be fired though.

The U.S. needs to have the naval presence in the area so they can shoot this thing down as soon as it clears NK airspace.

Kim Jong ul sa de fi wan ker, Your time is limited if you turn out like your psychopath dad....

Interesting to see how their capabilities are coming along though. If they cant hit Aus, they are sitting ducks to the best from the west....

Perhaps it's about time we dug a little deeper into the old pockets hey?

Mind you, it does seem a little random of NK to just point and shoot.

There will be a lot of angry looking faces looking to the skies from NK downwards. Wouldn't there be a question of airspace as well?

Don't you suppose that your reaction is exactly what the U.S. defense contractors want?

I wouldn't put anything past them.

We had a Patriot battery right next to us in Saudi in the first Gulf War.

Got to know the crew really well as my sick call tent was right next to their sleeping tent. To the man they thought the system was a joke.

I'm paraphrasing but the Lt who was in charge made the comment that 100 quad 50's would be a lot cheaper and more effective.

We Americans will not have it.

Hate our occupation of your country all that you want to.... but we will be there to protect you guys!

I thought it was a rockert launch anyway. Not a missile. Maybe Cuba should invest in a anti missle shield to shot down rockerts from Florida.

Well seeing how they piss off Japan every time they have sent one over their heads before, This must be a change from the new kid leader in response to his fathers reckless ways. It is supposed to be a Satellite but I think the Navy should still shoot it down for practice.

This sounds suspiciously like a joint secret deal between AUS and DPRK to put an end to the illegal refugee boats coming down under.They are bound to hit one

Yes you do and its heart is Pine Gap, but it isn't exactly Australian its owned by the U.S. in a joint U.S. & A.U. military relationship.
