Taiwan tests its missiles but failed to succeed in targeting the predetermined sites. This was reported by International news sites, January 18, 2011. The surface-to-air-missiles were tested at Jiupeng Military Base, Taiwan.

Taiwan’s President, Ma Ying-jeou wants the military to step it up and find solutions to the problems that had caused the failure.  Taiwan’s perceived inability to defend itself from China’s J-20 stealth aircraft pervades and President Ma Ying-jeou is disappointed.

Ma’s shifting of military duties to the disaster relief program was criticized because according to concerned sectors, the military should primarily “defend Taiwan against threats.” The military stated that they have done the test to prevent Chinese aircraft from crossing the median line.

Meanwhile, the beautiful Jiupeng Desert stays as a silent witness to Taiwan’s struggle for supremacy against rival China.
