Taiwan Security Looking Forward: Issues and Problems

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium

Compared with previous years, the situation in the Taiwan Strait area looks quiet as we enter 2007. Most assume that with the Olympics scheduled for China in 2008, that quiet will prevail, at least for a while. But, as the most recent Defense Department report on the People's Liberation Army points out, the number of missiles aimed at Taiwan continues to increase, while Chinese attack capabilities grow and Taiwan's deterrent erodes amid partisan political wrangling. Our panel of experts will discuss the overall situation, the military and political equations, and what it means for America and the region.
