All summer, a group of experts and former military leaders at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), have been conducting wargames to simulate what would happen if the United States responded to a Chinese invasion of Taiwan.

  • The scenarios in which Taiwan cannot repel an invasion are “very pessimistic,” said Mark Cancian (Colonel, USMCR, ret.), senior adviser at CSIS. In most cases, the games show Taiwan, the U.S. and Japan can stop the invasion, albeit at a high cost.
  • While the Taiwanese have a strong military, CSIS recommends they invest more in asymmetric capabilities, said Cancian.
  • Strong deterrence is the best way to avoid a conflict with China, he added.
