Japan Plans To Deploy Missiles To Strategic Island Near Taiwan

Japan Plans To Deploy Missiles To Strategic Island Near Taiwan.

Commentary: Ishigakijima and Miyakojima are two inhabited islands in the Ryukyus that flank the Miyako Strait. The PLAN has been sending surface task forces through the strait once or twice a year since 2010 or so.

Placing anti-ship missiles on both islands will close the strait during wartime or times of crisis, and short of occupying the islands there won’t be much China could do about it.
