Who knew that our neighbors down under could help?
Japan, allies warn North Korea on missile launch. See link here-->Australia -- which unlike the United States and Japan maintains diplomatic relations with the North -- said it had summoned Pyongyang's ambassador and warned against a test. The missle has been confirmed to be real and will be launched, effectively it has been fully fueled. I find it very interesting that despite all of this, the Austrialians actually communicate regularly with Pyongyang officials on a freindly basis. A nation which had no reason to fear North Korea, as it has yet to step on anyones toes nor actively try to undermine the regime, wants to help stop a potential WWIII scenario that seems all to real should North Korea decide one day to build another "test missle" and use it to unite the korean pennisual by force.
