"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

Australia has joined Japan in calling for US led development of missile defence.

Defence Minister Robert Hill says North Korea is working on missiles that could reach Australia. Releasing a review of national security, the Federal Government says United States work on missile defences is an important priority in dealing with "rogue states" such as North Korea. Senator Hill has flagged Australia's growing interest in United States anti-missile programs. He says North Korea's effort to get long-range missiles is a potential threat. "We don't believe they've tested a missile that would reach Australia at this time. But we certainly believe they have missile programs underway which would have that range," he said.
