One Year On: National Security - Military quietly putting offshore engagement policy into practice

By Brian Hsu / STAFF REPORTER

Considering that the idea of "offshore engagement" has now been thoroughly adopted by Taiwan's armed forces, it is hard to imagine that only a year ago it was so contentious an issue.

The policy, first spelled out by President Chen Shui-bian (陳水& #25153;) during the presidential election campaign, centers around the idea of "engaging the enemy in areas outside the island of Taiwan." In short the idea is not to fight the enemy "on the beaches" but to make sure they never get to the beaches in the first place.
