On the other side of the International Dateline, the people of the US Territory of Guam hail themselves as the place “Where America’s Day Begins.”
But one of the problems with being America’s westernmost territory, Guam is roughly 1,800 miles from Communist China. To keep things in perspective, this bit of American soil is over 6,000 miles from Los Angeles.
In a slick video, the Chinese Air Force (technically, The People’s Liberation Army Air Force) has released a 2:19 video that Hollywood would be proud of.
Unfortunately for the thousands of American citizens of Guam, they’re less-than-thrilled with the same.
As reported, the vid simulates a Chinese attack on a US Air Force Base located on the northernmost part of the American island.
Noted by the New York Post, “a satellite image of which is shown that looks exactly like the layout of Andersen [Air Force Base on Guam].”
The video — which is called “The God of War H-6K Goes on the Attack!” — was released Saturday on the People’s Liberation Army Air Force Weibo account, Reuters reported.
It shows nuclear-capable H-6K long-range bombers flying from bases in western China to the Pacific, where they drop their ordnance on a naval base that bears a striking resemblance to Andersen Air Force Base on the US Pacific island of Guam.
A pilot is seen pressing a button and firing off a missile at an unidentified seaside runway — a satellite image of which is shown that looks exactly like the layout of Andersen. The music then halts as images of the ground shaking appear, followed by dramatic views of an explosion.
“We are the defenders of the motherland’s aerial security; we have the confidence and ability to always defend the security of the motherland’s skies,” the air force wrote in a description for the video.
Interestingly enough, the USAF (via the Air Force Times) cited today a recent photo of a B-2 Spirit, a B-52 Stratofortress and a B-1 Lancer in a flyover of Guam’s Andersen AFB;
The Air Force on Monday flew all three types of bombers in its fleet over Eastern Europe and western parts of the Pacific Ocean in a major bomber task force mission.
