System of a Downer
Downer launches own missile on eve of visit to North Korea :
"The Minister for Foreign Affairs, Alexander Downer, yesterday made the astonishing claim that North Korea could launch a ballistic missile to hit Sydney, prompting incredulity among experts who said he had got his facts very wrong.... [North Korean missiles have a maximum 4,000 km range with limited accuracy: Australia is 10,000 ka away].
Mr Downer's comments follows the furore after he suggested the Philippines Government were "marshmallows" who had appeased terrorists after it withdrew troops from Iraq. Similar comments about Spain also met with an official rebuke."
