EDITOR NOTE: For a period of several days last week, Chinese warplanes breached the Taiwan Strait median line almost 40 times to conduct military exercises, presenting a show of force designed to threaten the small nation. Concurrently, a leaked video shows nuclear-capable Chinese bombers attacking a mock-up of US Andersen’s Air Force Base (Guam). The video was highly produced, from its style of editing to the dramatic music accompanying the scenes of attack. In short, it was more than just documentation of a military drill--it was a piece of propaganda aimed at stirring aggressive sentiment toward the destruction of a vilified enemy, the United States.
The People’s Liberation Army Air Force on Saturday released a video that showed nuclear-capable bombers attacking what appeared to be U.S.'s Andersen Air Force Base in Guam, a report said.
Reuters reported on Sunday that the video, titled, “The god of war H-6K goes on the attack!” is about two minutes long and has dramatic music.
China sent warplanes toward Taiwan for the second day Saturday. Beijing dispatched 19 more warplanes, two of which were bombers, according to Taiwan’s Defense Ministry. The island’s air force scrambled its own and deployed an air defense missile system to monitor China’s activities, according to a statement.
Collin Koh, a research fellow from Singapore’s Insitute of Defense and Strategic Studies, told Reuters that the video is a warning to the U.S. that “even supposedly safe, rearward positions such as Guam may come under threat when conflicts over regional flashpoints, be it Taiwan or South China Sea erupt.”
