Strait Tensions Soar: Taiwan Test Fires Missiles, Beijing Sends Warplane

Eight months after we penned a piece titled "Taiwan Warns Of Possible Invasion If China's Economy Continues To Deteriorate" -- a virus pandemic has crippled the global economy and Taiwan on Thursday (June 11) conducted missile tests off several of its coasts as tensions between China and the US are rising in the Taiwan Strait.

The South China Morning Post (SCMP) is reporting that Taiwan has test-fired missiles off its eastern and southern coasts as the self-ruled island increases its defense capabilities against mainland China.

The tests were held near Taiwan's eastern county of Taitung and the Jiupeng military base in the southern part of the island on Thursday night.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US is is in no real position to assist Taiwan, rather than with already-concluded missile sales, which appears to be President Trump's only way of dealing with adversaries at this point in his presidency, other than sanctions.
