The Coming War on China - John Pilger - Part 1
The Coming War on China from award winning journalist John Pilger – his 60th documentary and arguably his most prescient. It is both a warning and an inspiring story of resistance. The documentary reveals what the news doesn’t – that the world’s greatest military power, the United States, and the world’s second economic power, China, both nuclear-armed, may well be on the road to war.
Nuclear war is not only imaginable, but planned. The greatest build-up of NATO military forces since the Second World War is under way on the western borders of Russia. On the other side of the world, the rise of China is viewed in Washington as a threat to American dominance.
Filmed on five possible front-lines across Asia and the Pacific over two years, the story is told in chapters that connect a secret and ‘forgotten’ past to the rapacious actions of great power today and to a resistance, of which little is known in the West.
The Coming War on China was broadcast in the UK and SBS in Australia, and seen in many other countries, including China.
