Last weekend, the Chinese Air Force – the People’s Liberation Army Air Force – posted a video of an H-6 bomber attacking a target with a CGI missile, Reuters reported. The two-minute-long video was posted on the Air Force’s Weibo page – a Chinese social media platform.
Analysts say the plane was pictured taking off from a Chinese airport before launching an animated missile that appears to be a U.S. Anderson Air Force base on the island of Guam.
Then a huge explosion – again computer-generated – was seen from above.
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin claimed that he was “not aware” of the video when he was pressured to comment at a media briefing yesterday.
The dramatic clip compared to the movie trailer has the title: “The god of war continues to attack H-6!”

An additional statement reads: “We are the guardians of the motherland’s air; We have the confidence and ability to always defend the protection of the motherland’s skies. ”
The U.S. base in Guam is about 5,800 miles off the west coast of the U.S. from San Francisco and about 1,600 miles east of the Philippine capital Manila.
The base is considered significant because it is close to Asia, and so it is important in any US response to any conflict there.

The U.S. Department of Defense has not yet released a statement about the video.
The United States has recently expressed outrage in Beijing over its repeated official engagements with Taiwan.
Beijing’s foreign ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin called Taiwan “an integral part of China’s territory” and warned the United States not to do so.

Beijing’s foreign ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin issued a warning to the United States at a press briefing yesterday, condemning the visit.
He told reporters: “China strongly opposes any kind of official relationship between the United States and the Taiwan region.

“This is a political provocation that encourages separatists in“ Taiwan’s independence ”and undermines Sino-US relations as well as peace and stability on Taiwan’s beaches.
“We will also be held accountable against the person concerned. Sino-US coordination and cooperation on major regional and international issues will have further negative consequences for the US, for which it will bear full responsibility. ”
