Taiwan fired a live missile towards China and fortunately it hit a Taiwanese fishing boat killing its captain and wounding two fishermen. Taiwan claimed that it was a mistake.
What is Taiwan trying to do? Is it trying to send a message to China or wanting to commit a copycat attack on China like what the ugly Americans did against the Chinese Embassy in Belgrade? Another American 'mistake'in the same nature would be war. Are the Taiwanese so foolish and reckless to attempt such a silly hostile act?
Firing a live missile is never a mistake! Firing a cruise missile to hit the Chinese Embassy was never a mistake. Both were hostile acts. There are many levels of command and control protocol to fire a live missile. Make no mistake about this so called 'mistake'. Taiwan would have to answer and pay for this silly hostile act. There are more to it, as to how the missile was redirected to hit a fishing boat instead of hitting Xiamen. Would the Taiwanese be so cruel to test fire the missile using its own fishing boat and citizens for target practice? What caused the missiles not to land at Xiamen is a big question. If it did, Taiwan would be in smokes today. A war between Taiwan and China has just be avoided.
Maybe it is time that China too starts to fire missiles by mistakes at American warships or at Taiwan. When professional military forces can make such layman mistakes, China should plead ignorance, that their system was faulty, PLA soldiers badly trained and are proned to firing missiles by mistakes. Just beware as China's soldiers are not very good and when they are around, missiles can just go off especially in the South China Sea.
