Going to the Source

Taiwan just wrapped up parts of their annual wargames, this year assuming the Chinese land on Taiwan after defeating Taiwan's air and naval forces.

What is most interesting is what I missed from last year's exercise (or forgot):

After simulation exercises last year, Taiwan announced for the first time it would fire missiles at Chinese airfields and missile launch sites if Beijing attacked.

Good. Anything to gum up the works on a conveyor belt of Chinese troops attempting to cross the Taiwan Strait.
