520    Over the past decade, Chinese military strategists have 
       keenly observed changes in U.S. national strategy and 
       military transformation. The acceleration of its own 
       military modernization suggests that China is not 
       dissuaded by U.S. military prowess but instead is driven 
       by a range of strategic and military motivations to keep 
       pace. This report examines the constraints, facilitators, 
       and potential options for Chinese responses to U.S. 
       transformation efforts, especially with respect to whether
       Taiwan moves toward or away from formal independence. The 
       authors focus on four areas of counter-transformation 
       options that China may pursue (which most likely would 
       include all or portions of each strategy): Conventional 
       Modernization "Plus"; Subversion, Sabotage, and 
       Information Operations; Missile-Centric Strategies; and 
       Chinese Network-Centric Warfare. The path China takes will
       depend on its key national security goals and the 
       political and economic context within which these goals 
       are pursued. That said, the authors offer possible U.S. 
       counterresponses to such courses of action (e.g., planning
       defensive measures, augmentation of network-centric 
       platforms) and emphasize that the ultimate "victor" of 
       transformation will be that nation with the best 
       combination of surprise, error control, fortune, and 
       highly trained people.
