China claims a missle intercept test went well:
China says it has successfully carried out a test of military technology to shoot down missiles in mid-air. The news comes in the wake of tensions between Beijing and Washington because of American missile sales to Taiwan, an island China considers part of its territory.Wait until everyone gets their hands on that.
Jiang says Monday's test of "ground-based, mid-course missile intercepting technology" had what she describes as "the expected result."
There have been few details about the test....
She emphasizes that the anti-missile test is in line with what she calls China's path of peaceful development and is not targeted at any country.
My guess? The test didn't go very well. And I believe Taiwan media will go crazy about the report, with the pro-unification media emphasizing that any test like this was aimed at the US, not Taiwan.
