ABSTRACT
The article examines Taiwan's defense strategy. In the author's view China will soon have sufficient military might to destroy Taiwan's navy and air force, should it so choose. Rather than purchase additional diesel submarines and aircraft from the U.S., Taiwan should instead reduce its value as a target by improving its capacity to withstand an attack for an extended period of time.
