China war threat as 1,500 missiles aimed at US army bases in Taiwan | Daily Star: Military bosses from the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) are aiming the firepower at Taiwan as part of an escalating military threat to the island.
US military bases in Okinawa are within range of the DF-16 ballistic missiles – which can hit targets with “pinpoint precision” from 1,500km away.
Chinese defence minister Feng Shih-kuan issued the shock announcement as tensions over the disputed South China Sea territory threaten to spill over into war.
His comments come after Taiwan revealed it has missiles capable of reaching Chinese shores last week.
