(Taipei Times, By Nadia Tsao and Jonathan Chin) Former U.S. Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for East Asia Abraham Denmark said the U.S. military would be able to respond to a crisis similar to the Taiwan Strait Crisis in 1996, stating that the U.S. is legally obligated to ensure it has the military capabilities to defend Taiwan. The U.S., however, is not legally bound to intervene in the case of a crisis, and that will be a decision the President will have to make.
