The U.S. Army is testing the Iron Dome on Guam. WSJ’s Shelby Holliday got a first-hand look at the missile-defense system, which arrived months after a top military leader called the island’s defenses inadequate against threats from China. Photo: Adam Falk/The Wall Street Journal

while you shouldn't underestimate a potential adversary, you guys are going too far on the other side, 
overestimating and even exaggerating china's capabilities.

It's just funny that they are trying to use a system designed to intercept homemade pipe rocket as cheap as possible can stop CJ-20 and CJ-100. I believe it's more about pushing propaganda for Israel bc if you remember it, last time Israel slaughtered Palestinian, lots of youtubers were paid to brag about how good iron doom is.

None of this will matter once the Dog Head Man Super Soldier is put into service!

shii- I hope they don’t set up missile systems on top of my house

Good to see the DOD going to make their own domestic iron dome system. Never knew why the MEADS never made it to production and into the active system. It's so good

Why can't you just leave China alone. Chinese people are only focused on developing their country. How's someone's development a threat to you like you expect anybody else to not develop. I never hear China saying someone is a threat yet you're always in their region and in their faces provoking, warmongering. The world wants peace!

if something costs millions it must be really good right?

Global:<,,,,Us creates enemies and looks for ways of defending against …………….."///////////////////// That is the signature of a hegemonic power !! Under whatever reasons and strategy, US has been pursuing this world strategy by engaging in almost NON-STOP wars since the end of WWII. Sadly,US does not the inherit a mechanism to correct its own way ….except in the case if there are external forces to cause the change!! Russia and China remains the 'obstacles' for US to continue its world domination plan~~Will see soon if the US would continue same old strategy or US will be forced to adjust to the shifting of world power….!!?

China don’t want that smoke, if American territory is hit it’ll be CURTAINS for Xi and his CPC!

The "woke" Pentagon is "asleep" at the switch

Tara Lujan November 25, 2021 - 7:29 AM

Thank you for highlighting this 🙌

It’s sad that people still refuse to acknowledge the truths from history. China is not the us. It doesn’t invade other countries or interfere with their internal affairs.

Don’t mention Taiwan. PRC and KMT have been fighting a civil war, and it was the us that interrupted the fighting.

Oh and most beaches have coral.

I used to live on Guam in the early 80s, Military brat. Had to do bomb drills as a child at school.

Peter Phrakaysone November 25, 2021 - 8:24 AM

Very good . Iron Dome is not the best but good enough to self-defense.

Eddie Yang November 25, 2021 - 8:25 AM

Are these the soldiers we have? bruh… I'm worried

Top5- Vid November 25, 2021 - 9:01 AM

The only treat is USA

Emmanuel Kiprono November 25, 2021 - 9:25 AM

The timing is kinda sus, Afghanistan's goldpit was just closed. No body will attack the US or Guam. From HiroShima, Iraq, Afghanistan to Libya everybody knows the consequences of at the least threatening war with this country. This is just seems another ploy to sell fear to increase military spending.

This reporter is incompetent

ZincFold November 25, 2021 - 9:29 AM

The only real threat to the Asia Pacific region is the U.S

Sexton Cardew November 25, 2021 - 9:30 AM

Just the usual US nonsense talk. The only serious threat to the world emanates from America.

GripenTactics November 25, 2021 - 9:43 AM

Guam is belong to to the Philippines BTW

Martin P November 25, 2021 - 9:45 AM

It's a tourist place to me and I don't think any chinese need this tiny place to live.
