KOREAN NERD NOT A WORRY
GOOD old Kim Jong- un. What a unit he is. The question is, will the North Korean knucklehead point one of his intercontinental ballistic missiles at Australia and pull the trigger? And more specifically will he point it at Townsville? I asked defence expert Dr Andrew Davies yesterday if we Townsvilleans should be sleeping with one eye open just in case the Nerd from the North decides to take a potshot at us with a nuclear warhead. I have to say I got the immediate impression that Dr Davies thought I was pulling his leg. But he composed himself and said no one should be losing any sleep over being taken out by a missile strike in the foreseeable future. He didn’t rule out, though, that if North Korea’s weapons arsenal were allowed to increase unchecked the “rogue state” might one day send a missile or two hurtling towards “America’s eyes and ears” at Pine Gap, 18km south of Alice Springs. In the meantime we can sleep tight here in the Ville.
