North Korean missiles aimed at Australia: US

All Aussies please NOTE that North Korea was never a threat to Oz BEFORE Washington doormat, Gillard allowed Australia to be used as a platform by the US to launch attacks on China and other perceived enemies in the region. Signing off on an UNPRECEDENTED F-I-V-E full scale (nuclear) US military bases of occupation has, as warned by this site, resulted in Australia NOW becoming a PRIMARY NUCLEAR TARGET -- well done you gutless, INCOMPETENT, Canberra clowns!
Lackey PM, Gillard
A senior US official has warned that North Korea's upcoming missile launch will be aimed towards South-East Asia and Australia for the first time.
Kurt Campbell, assistant secretary of state for East Asian and Pacific affairs, delivered the message in person to Australian Foreign Minister Bob Carr, Fairfax reported on Saturday.
"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," Mr Campbell was quoted as saying.
"We have weighed into each of these countries and asked them to make clear that such a test is provocative and this plan should be discontinued."
Nuclear-armed North Korea plans to launch a rocket in April to put a satellite into orbit, a move the US, Australia and other nations see as a pretext for a long-range missile test banned by the United Nations.
The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) said it was deeply concerned by North Korea's plans.
A spokesperson for DFAT told AAP the government had registered concerns with the North Korean ambassador to Australia in Jakarta on Friday.
Senator Carr said North Korea's nuclear and long-range missile programs presented a "real and credible threat to the security of the region and Australia".
He said the planned satellite launch would be a clear breach of UN Security Council resolutions.
Prime Minister Julia Gillard will be among other world leaders invited to South Korea next week for nuclear security talks.
Ms Gillard on Wednesday moved a lower house motion to renew Australia's commitment to the eradication of all nuclear weapons.
UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon is expected to raise North Korea's rocket launch at the meeting on Monday and Tuesday.
