GOOGLE MAPS REVEALS PATRIOT MISSILE LAUNCH SITES IN TAIWAN

The Taiwanese government is doing damage control after the latest Google Maps upgrade revealed their most sensitive missile sites, down to the launcher types and models of the missiles, for all to see – including archenemy China.

Defense Ministry officials in Taipei are asking Google to blur the missile site locations, which were exposed in painstaking 3D detail in the latest upgrade of Google’s satellite map app, for the sake of national security – while urging the public to remain calm.

“The site of a military base does not equally mean its fixed position during wartime,” Minister of National Defense Yen De-fa cautioned during a press conference on Friday. An anonymous defense official claimed the images are probably outdated anyway, since the military moves its facilities frequently “to conceal them and deceive the enemy,” according to Focus Taiwan.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is an industrial strength "oops there!!" on Google's part, and the timing could possibly be worse, given the current tensions between mainland China and Taiwan, but I sure has heck don't see how.
