Taiwan has started a computerized military exercise to simulate a scenario of Chinas launching of an invasion on the island in 2017.
The five-day maneuver that started on Monday is part of Taiwans biggest annual military drill with this years exercise being codenamed 'Han Kuang 29', AFP quoted defense ministry officials as saying.
The Taiwanese defense ministry said that the drill simulates a surprise attack followed by a large-scale invasion by China in 2017. It did not, however, provide any explanation as to why the scenario was being considered for that specific year.
Over the past few years, ties across the Strait have improved and civil exchanges have been on the rise, but military threat from the mainland has not accordingly diminished, Taiwanese Army Major General Tseng Fu-hsin told reporters last week.
China and Taiwan are separated by the Taiwan Strait in the west Pacific Ocean. They split in 1949 following a civil war, but Beijing still regards the island as part of its territory.

They may not need us!
The world is getting ready, I think.
There is no political way out.
There is no economic way out.
We are screwed, and the only option left is military action followed by slavery and plundering of neighboring nations.
Some are preparing for offense.
Some are preparing for defense.
But I think everyone is preparing.
... During the transfer of power from Obama to Hillary- both of whom would abet it, and hide from the blame.
Very acute of the planners.
That’s like Victor Cruz shooting off his mouth AFTER the verdict.
I’m surprised China hasn’t already moved on Taiwan.
With Odungo in the White Hut it would be the perfect time.
It means they are practicing rounding up and handing over their weapons as quickly as possible.
They’ve still got 3.5 years left.
they still have too much invested in us. we’d cancel the debt if they went against us on taiwan.
Odungo cares nothing about Taiwan or any other ‘free’ nation. China and Russia are playing him like a cheap fiddle.
“They may not need us!”
Oh yes they do! Without the military assistance of the U.S. and other countries, (Nationalist China) Taiwan will be overrun by Red China in less than a week.
The only reason Red China has not already is that it is still more profitable to leave them alone....for the moment.
