If nothing else, they have heart

Taiwan stages war games as report shows China would win in six days (AFP - 11 Aug 2004)

The scenario of the maneuver, the first of two rehearsals for a major exercise to be held on August 25, was that Taiwan troops had failed to hold off an amphibious landing by Chinese forces, TVBS cable television showed. ...

China, which has some 600 ballistic missiles aimed at the island, has itself been staging large-scale military exercises on Dongshan island off its southeastern coast.

The drill came as Defense Minister Lee Jye confirmed a report that in a recent computer-simulated exercise, Taiwanese troops were wiped out 130 hours after the People's Liberation Army (PLA) started invading.

Six days.
