The Australiant: China’s new missiles targeting Taiwan, defence head warns

Taiwan is being targeted by China’s new medium-range ballistic missiles, Taiwan’s Defence Minister Feng Shih-kuan announced yesterday.

In a report to Taiwan’s parliament, the Legislative Yuan, he said China was stepping up its military intimidation of Taiwan.

Target the 3 Gorges Dam. Hitting that is almost as good as nuclear 1st strike.

The Chinese cannot build enough air defense to protect it.
