From WWW.DAILYWIRE.COM

A senior Taiwanese official who was in charge of supervising the island nation’s massive ramp up of missile production has been found dead in a hotel room in a southern part of the country.

Ou Yang Li-hsing, deputy head of Taiwan defense ministry’s research and development unit, was found dead Saturday morning, according to state media.

Ou Yang, 57, was on an official trip to the southern county of Pingtung when he died.

Ou Yang was overseeing the military-owned National Chung-Shan Institute of Science and Technology’s work in doubling its production of missiles to 500 per year as the island nation prepares for a possible invasion in the coming years from Communist China.

Ou Yang’s death comes after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) visited Taiwan this week to show that China could not isolate the island, which it falsely claims as its own, from the rest of the world.
