Fitzgibbon congratulates shooter

I'll bet Defence Minister Fitzgibbon will be trying to get the SM 3 for our destroyers:

Mr Fitzgibbon confirmed missile defence was discussed but declined to reveal details. The former coalition government expressed an interest in acquiring a missile defence capability through fitting advanced Standard SM-3 missiles to new air warfare destroyers.

But Mr Fitzgibbon said the government had observed this week's US shootdown of a rogue satellite with a SM-3 with great interest.

"Can I say Bob, nice shot,'' he said.
