Taiwan is now bolstering its defenses. Will it be too late or too little too late?

Foreign Minister Joseph Wu: “We know the military threat against Taiwan is very serious”. Taiwan has been in China’s crosshairs since Chiang Kai-shek moved his government here in 1949. Most Taiwanese leaders have awaked to the danger and are acting to avert it, Wu says. Taiwanese official: “We need to beef up our defense capability, knowing that China might attack at any time”. Many Taiwanese count on the U.S. to come to its aid in the event of war, but Washington has long maintained a policy of “strategic ambiguity”.
