Breaking. The head of Taiwan's defense department: the Taiwanese military has changed the definition of "first strike"


According to the March 8 report from Taiwan's "Central News Agency", the head of Taiwan's defense department, Qiu Guozheng, said on March 7 that the Taiwan military changed the definition of "first strike" and this will happen when Chinese planes cross the "border".


When the PLA's "physical aircraft" crosses the "border", the Taiwanese military will consider it as the "first strike" and will "countermeasure" it, Qiu Guozheng said.

According to reports, Qiu Guo-zheng said in a question-and-answer session at the Taiwan Legislature's Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee on March 7 that in the past, mainland China's "first strike" was defined as artillery and cannon fire, but the Taiwanese military has long since changed the definition of "first strike" so that as long as the PLA's "physical aircraft" crosses the "border," the Taiwanese military will consider it as the "first strike" and deal with it.


The Taiwanese military has long changed the definition of "first strike," so that as long as a PLA "physical aircraft" crosses the "border," the Taiwanese military would consider it as a "first strike" and take countermeasures.

Qiu Guo-zheng added that the military ìdefinitionî of "first strike" was changed not long after he took office.


And how to "counteract"?

Qiu Guozheng said that "as long as there are entities including aviation, maritime aviation, drones and unmanned ships, it is necessary to deal with them. It is time to warn, shout and send flares to let them know that we have noticed If he continues to not cooperate, obviously there will be a response."
