China Protests US Missile Fuse Flub

China has issued a protest against a shipment by the U.S. of missile parts to Taiwan, which the U.S. has said was a mistake. From AP:

In a statement posted on the ministry’s Web site, Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang said China had brought a “serious representation” to Washington and expressed “strong displeasure” over the error.

The U.S. Defense Department said Tuesday that the Air Force had mistakenly shipped to Taiwan four electrical fuses designed for use on intercontinental ballistic missiles. The fuses have since been recovered and an investigation launched.
