"TAIPEI — Taiwan has for the first time deployed cruise missiles capable of striking key military bases along the southeast coast of the Chinese mainland, local media reported May 28."

“To some extent, the weaponry can serve as a deterrent,” Kevin Cheng, the editor-in-chief of the Taipei-based Asia-Pacific Defense Magazine, told AFP.

“In case of war in the Taiwan Strait, the missiles could be used to attack the airports and other military bases of the People’s Liberation Army.”

Maybe that's to offset China's over 900 Missiles that they've had ready to pulverize Taiwan for years if hostilities ever break out?

Over 900 Chinese Missiles Aimed At Taiwan

Taipei (AFP) Jan 22, 2007
China has deployed more than 900 ballistic missiles against rival Taiwan and they could obliterate the island's air force should war break out, a report said Monday. Internal Pentagon documents had raised the number of short-range Chinese ballistic missiles aimed at Taiwan, the United Daily News said citing an unnamed US intelligence source.

The Pentagon is the headquarters of the US Department of Defense.

The source said the missiles had ranges of 300 miles to 600 miles and that the number deployed against the island kept on increasing.

Anonymous Taiwanese defense ministry officials told the newspaper that Taiwan's three US-made Patriot anti-missile batteries would not be able to shield it entirely from an intensive Chinese bombardment.

This is it folks, the show begins. The yellow peril will not tolerate this. All hell is about to break lose. Head for the hills and teach your pets how to use tin openers.

Quite possibly a good deterrent to help off-set any would be aggression from the mainland, maybe they will think twice now.

Actually Taiwan and China have economic ties worth Billions. I doubt it'll come to blows, if anything it will eventually end up like Hong Kong. But don't hold your breath for this possibility any time soon IMO
