So why are the N.Koreans not allowed to launch test missiles? The States does, The UK does, Pakistan, India does, so why the hub bub over N. Korea testing a missile? I dont see the problem?

dont worry the missle janitor accidentally moved it a few inches to the left while giving it its daily polishing. im sure they will swivel it in its proper position when they test it.

Hahahaha, the North Koreans can feel free to hit Canberra and Adelaide any time they want!!!


Only good thing to come out of either places are a bunch of 44 Gallon drums, and fireworks and porn. And even then, the fireworks and porn are on the outskirts of Canberra.

Found this via BBC news, so even though the missile launcher is aimed southward - it could be turned anywhere. Dawin seems to be in line again as it was on 19 February 1942.

This is the second mention in 7 posts stating that the U.S. should do something. WHY??? Why is it always up to us to save everyone's behinds, only to be looked upon as an aggressive nation? Clean up your own freakin' mess. I don't see anyone saying that China should do something.

Hmm they may be a threat but since Ive had my eyes open personal opinion I'd say the US is one of the biggest threats. As I've said to a friend .. What if Iran or n.korea where to produce ONE nuke they would be stupid to use it. As for the US always sticking their noses in everywhere, I'm from the UK and our government is no better. I still think about the film Team America .. World police, blowing everything up and invadin countries no wonder people are starting to get fed up. But hey that's my personal opinion slate me if you will


Couldn't agree with you more. Throughout the 1900's we (the U.S.) has set up puppet leaders throughout the world, only to have to take them out when agendas do a 180 and deem these puppets a threat. We should stay the hell out of world affairs; and guess what would happen? No one would be out to blow us the hell up. God bless America...and screw you! lol

Perhaps we could stop starving the masses via sanctions and perhaps we would have some credibility in humanitys eyes.


And perhaps the citizens of NK should grow a pair and take down their own government. No sick government, no sanctions.

I was indeed serious. As well, sport is sport and all sides deserve equall cheering and respect. I generally stay out of sides debates due to the nature of humans to pick sides. (Our R-Complex loves doing that, its why we have a hierarchical system in all facits of life.) I am still confused why one side is allowed to do testing while another is not? I understand N.Korea has a bad track record for almost everything, but its just a missile test schedualed to crash into the ocean. You can get some pretty advanced hobby rocket kits that have full yaw control, I dont see anyone getting mad at me for sub orbital launches.

We dont hate the USA at all. We think your government is completely mental and that your population often displays closeted and uneducated behavior but other than that we like you for the most part.

But don't you think we dont deserve some of your country's military protection after having been dragged into your stupid ass 'wars' all the time?

The Americans said it so no it's not true, Of course I don't have a source to say it isn't real but I don't tend to trust anything the US government says anyway. I just can't stand the US Government.


American here, and what you've written (which is pretty much in line with world opinion) is the culmination of years of U.S. interference (oops! I meant involvement) in other countries. This is what we get for all the American soldiers that have died to protect and/or free other nations from tyranny. Yet, sadly, I can't disagree with you. Our governent keeps putting us deeper and deeper in debt, to the point where there's no getting out of the hole now. So, what has my government accomplished? Is the world a safer place? Hell no, it's more dangerous now than ever before in man's history. Has it snuffed out inhumane treatment around the world? No.

In short, my government has sent our own soldiers, our own sons and daughters, to die for...?...oil? For future business prospects? It has utterly destroyed our economy. So what good is oil and business if we can't afford to buy anything? Maybe I'm just rambling here. I'm just disgusted with the whole human mess.

Also Australian's don't hate all of America. We mostly have a great distaste for what your government and military do and authorize in your nations name. As for things on a civil level. Well I have to admit I've met a lot of American's who have displayed endless amounts of Arrogance. Most often displayed when questioned critically about a subject (they have most often lacked knowledge on) or when you try to advise logic on a subject, that requires them to physically do something.

My best example of my second point. My cousin playing Black Ops on xbox live. It has a privacy search function which allows you to set how the game match makes. I believe you can have it set to open (joins a game on any host connection locale or abroad), locale (which prioritized local hosts, usually within ones own nation) and Locale only (which will own search for connections within the parameter of locale, not abroad as well). Anyhow to the point. From time to time you'll get Americans who join a lobby. Get in game. Notice the excessive lag and begin to carry on. Then comes the end of the game. Your back in the pre-game lobby. The individual(s) begins to carry on in a childish manner about the lag. We then proceed to explain how they can use the search function.

This is usually met with comments such as, "why should I have to do that it's an American game", "No, you need to get off the wal-mart connection", etc. Either way when they get aggressive over the subject when all you try to do is help. That's when we take offense and tend to dish back just what we're getting for trying to be courteous. I would say you get 1/30 who may not react in such fashion. If they take the time to listen, it makes things better for all. But most the time the filth that comes out of their mouths is nothing short of gun-ho. Most of us Aussies aren't quick to judge. We have enough common sense to know all Americans aren't the same. I think respect, manners and common courtesy are heavily vacant from your younger generations.

Back on to the main topic. Is there a North Korean source firstly. I just think its overly convenient the US is giving us the first notice on this. I don't expect North Korea to pass word on to our government that the test would be taking place. It's just clear if the US atleast has a source. It shouldn't be hard to provide. Unless of course it endangers some covert operations team, but they had no problem identifying Seal team 6's presence in Osama's alledged killing right?

SO WHAT???
I am sooooooo tired of America dictating what country can have what.Mind you I live in this hell of a country and I agree with almost NOTHING this government does.I mean so NK has nukes or missiles pointed wherever.
So what? Since when are we Thor who decides the weather and who can have what type of arms and weapons?

It's ok for the goddamn ,crap of a country (smaller than NJ) called IsraHell to be armed to the teeth but God forbid another country does the same.Enough with what the Americans 'want' or think.If they don't like it , disarm Israel , cut off all foreign aid to them and disarm yourselves.THEN you can talk.

For now the US should shut the *F up.America ain't the superpower it used to be.They are spread thin as it is.
UNLESS NK actually fires at another country (unprovoked) than what gives 'us' the right to say what country can have what.Not trying to beat a dead horse but if IsraHell can do it why not NK.Buncha hypocrites.

TextWhere was our help in WW2 then?


That was a different time....I think things would be different now. At least I hope it would. I know the U.S. has done some bad things and I am not defending that.....but please don't judge all people of a country based on what the government does. I don't hate you.


It wasn't just America that ignored our calls for help in WW2, Britain too abandoned us so they don't get much love either.

Maybe you are right though, it might be different today but I don't know.


I thought that in WW2, Britain failed to help us, so we then asked for America's help and they actually did help us out; which then resulted in the ANZUS treaty. Am I wrong on that?

Don't judge a country of people based on what you've experienced on the internet, especially xbox live


The internet brings out the worst in everyone, I played black ops recently on the PC, within 5 minutes everyone was swearing at each other in an Australian server. People's behaviour goes to crap on online games.

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.

(visit the link for the full news article)


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?


When this sort of intelligence emerges from NK it needs to be accepted as fact until proven otherwise. Their is peoples safety at stake. You might not take that seriously but many do. The NK regime are animals and we need to do everything in out power to stop any threat. If you take NK side you are a terrorist sympathiser.

If you are so tired of us dictating what country does what then the answer is quite simple...

BUILD A BETTER SUPERPOWER AND TOP DOG US?

I do not know what you are going to do about land mass, but I understand that there are currently 5 gyrating continental-sized islands of plastic conveniently located around the globe in the oceanic sectors that may the bill so pick your spot and get to building your army pal!

...and YES IT IS OK for Israel to be armed to the teeth...they belong to the U.N and are sanctioned to be so......since you have a problem with them I suggest taking your issues to the Prime Minister of Israel himself instead of griping about it like a baby on an American forum....they are a sovereign nation afterall.

Because Israeli spies stole the nuclear technology from us you ingnoramous. I don't like the Globalist policies of my Country either, but you can bet your ass that we are not gonna shut up, so maybe you should shut up?

The other Nations like Pakistan, North Korea, India as well as Germany, Britain and france were sold the technologies from spies in various already armed Nations. Obviously it was The USA and Russia who first possessed Nuclear technology.

You ask why if one has it, another should not, Well think about it for a minute? Should we just allow the entire planet to become Nuclear armed? Are you a lunatic? Would that only increase the chances of Nuclear warfare, not to mention a dirty bomb being sold to someone who wanted to ignite one in some Nations City?

Think about what you're actualy saying my misled sheoplized friend. Just think about what you're complaining about........
