North Korean missiles can’t hit Australia ‘yet’ [BUT CHINESE ICBMs CAN!]
by james Sunday, May 14 2017, 12:38am
international / prose / post

The above headline (outside brackets) in Murdoch rag, The Weekend Australian, is a lesson in mass media distraction, ‘perception management’ and crowd control. It is no secret that North Korea’s effective missiles are incapable of striking Australia, however, what is missing (by intentional omission) is that China’s ICBMs with up to 14 warheads EACH, are EASILY capable of not only striking Australia but of wiping out every major city leaving our precious resources clean of radiation.

Now consider how the story headline and the ‘experts’ quoted together serve to distract from the real possibility that just one successful ICBM missile from China would wipe out all Australia’s capital cities, and China, if forced to by a pre-emptive American strike, would launch a far great number than one on Australia for the specific REASON that America now militarily occupies Australia and uses it for its military purposes, which our knee-walking, treasonous governments have allowed.

The war mongering Americans are now at liberty to use every major port, airfield and any other military convenience, for their own aims and as every analyst knows, they are targeting CHINA -- North Korea is IRRELEVANT!

So my fellow informed Australians chew on some real facts before you are led by the nose into fantasy land. It is now exposed fact that media saturation of the Korean ‘problem’ is fake, a subterfuge, which is intended to cover up the REAL ISSUE, and that is what, beer and wine swilling Aussie morons? That the Americans are installing anti-missile systems in South Korea as a defensive manoeuvre against CHINA and China knows it -- now that is the REAL news, not the duping, distractive crap from CFR member Murdoch and his paid kindie journalists.

Note that it was school girl Julia Gillard that signed over, WITHOUT A MANDATE, OUR sovereignty to America and elevated Australia to PRIMARY NUCLEAR TARGET STATUS by doing so, and the Libs have followed suit. There is absolutely no reason to jeopardise our nation in this EXTREME way, PRIMARY NUCLEAR TARGET, for Christ’s sake, and for what? To entertain buffoons like Bush and Trump and their needless wars -- give traditional Aussies a break, you spineless, unrepresentative politicians.

Clearly, major political parties are now more servile and obedient to FOREIGN powers, particularly the neocon nut cases in Washington, than working in the best interests of the home nation and for that, major political leaders, past and present, should be shot for their clearly TREASONOUS ACTIONS. There is absolutely no need for Oz to compromise itself and become a convenient platform for any foreign power to conduct its unnecessary, nation and planet threatening, WARS! China is not about to attack Australia, in fact it views Oz with great affection, though that does not apply to our knee-walking, servile, treasonous and USELESS politicians.

Now read that article in The Australian again but this time armed with awareness:

North Korean missiles can’t hit Australia ‘yet’
by ‘Primrose’ Riordan

US physicist and missile tech expert David Wright said the latest North Korea missile launch means North Korea may now be able to reach targets close to Indonesia.

According to his modelling based on South Korean and Japanese government information, the new test shows missiles may have a 4500km range. Darwin is 5800km from the latest launch site.

South Korea’s military said North Korea has fired an unidentified projectile from a region near its west coast - Kusong located northwest of the capital, Pyongyang.

The nation’s news wire Yonhap news agency reported the projectile launched appeared to be a ballistic missile.

South Korea’s military said it flew about 700km, and a Japanese official told Reuters the missile flew for about 30 minutes.

US Pacific Command, however, said it may not be an intercontinental ballistic missile – which could threaten the US and its allies – and landed in the Sea of Japan.

“The type of missile is being assessed and it is not consistent with an intercontinental ballistic missile,” a PACOM spokeman said.

Dr Wright said it could be a KN-17 medium-range ballistic missile. He said the latest launch shows the rogue state’s technology has advanced and this would cause concern in Washington.

Dr Wright said he used computer modelling to come up with the hypothesis that the new Korean technology could now have a 4500 kilometre range.

“What I did was I modelled a missile to see how high it would have to go in order to fly for 30 minutes and splash down at 700 kilometres and what I found was that it would have to fly up to about 2000 kilometres altitude which is very high.”

“I started wondering if the 30 minute flight time. The Japanese cabinet minister said it had reached an altitude of 2000 kilometres, which is just what I estimated.”

“You can then get an idea of how powerful the missile is and then you can see how far would that missile go if I didn’t fly it on such a high trajectory but on a normal trajectory and it comes up to the 4500 kilometre range.”

Dr Wright said this meant the missiles could reach Australia’s neighbours, but not Australia as yet.

“It would have to be 6000km [range], and they would just reach the northern tip, so you’re safe still. “It would get close to Indonesia. It almost reaches Papua New Guinea...it could reach Guan with this.”

Dr Wright said considering North Korea could already hit US allies if it wanted too, it was unlikely to target Australia.

He said this was likely the “next step” in their path toward developing longer range missiles, and it was likely the new missile the country launched in a military parade in April.

“On April 15 North Korea did a big parade and there was a new missile that was in that we hadn’t seen before. And so we think that’s probably what it is.”

Defence Minister Marise Payne condemned North Korea’s latest missile launch as “reckless and provocative”.

Senator Payne said such actions led to global instability. “Australia regards this as a reckless and provocative action that leads to instability both regional and globally and has condemned clearly in the past North Korea for this sort of behaviour and we do so again,” she told reporters.

She said Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull spoke to new South Korean President Moon Jae-in about the crisis on Friday.

“The Prime Minister spoke with the New President of South Korea, President Moon Jae-in, on Friday.

“They of course discussed the issues of current insecurity on the Korean peninsula and President welcomed Australia’s engagement in the region and of course our condemnation of North Korean actions,” Senator Payne said.

In May The Wall Street Journal reported Sayari Analytics — a financial-intelligence firm that works for banking and US government clients — has identified more than 600 Chinese companies that trade with North Korea. Ninety per cent of North Korean trade passes through China.

Senator Payne said China needed to do more to pull North Korea back from its nuclear course.

“We call on nations to redouble their efforts to impose the sanctions agreed through the UN processes on North Korea. We know that there are some nations which have a significant influence in this regard, and that would include China in particular.”
