China is not happy with the U.S.

State media complained bitterly about the a $6.4 billion dollar military package for Taiwan. The Chinese say the sale will complicate U.S./Sino relations. China claims Taiwan is it's own, but the 14 thousand sq mile Island of 23 million people says it has no master. China is threatening sanctions against U.S. companies, but for the U.S. those threat pale by comparison against an even bigger threat --a military showdown between the U.S. and China over Taiwan.

China Shoots Down a Missile

China says its military intercepted a missile in mid-flight recently. It was a test of some new technology. The story emerged as nerves about Taiwan begin to show. Raytheon has just sold one billion dollars in hardware to Taiwan for use in it's Patriot air defense system. The Chinese have strongly denounced the sale and called Taiwan a renegade province. Perhaps the reason for both the strong Chinese language about Taiwan and the missile test is because now Taiwan has the capability to shoot down Chinese short and mid-range missiles.
