John Pilger: The Coming War on China


A nuclear war between the United States and China is not only imaginable but a current ‘contingency’, says the Pentagon. This film by acclaimed filmmaker John Pilger’s is both a warning and an inspiring story of resistance.

The Coming War on China, filmed over two years across five potential flashpoints in Asia and the Pacific, reveals the build-up to war on more than 400 US military bases that encircle China in a ‘perfect noose’.

Using rare archive and remarkable interviews with witnesses, Pilger’s film discloses America’s secret history in the region – the destruction wrought by the equivalent of one Hiroshima every day for 12 years, and the top secret ‘Project 4.1’ that made guinea pigs of the population of the Marshall Islands.

In key interviews from Pentagon war planners to members of China’s confident new political class – who rarely feature in Western reports, Pilger’s film challenges the notion and propaganda of China as a new ‘enemy’.

Pilger says: “The aim of this film is to break a silence. A new cold war is under way along with the drumbeat to war, this time with the real possibility of nuclear weapons.

‘The Coming War’ is also a film about the human spirit and the rise of an extraordinary resistance in faraway places.

    America, since the tri-polarisation of world economy in the ’60s, has been effectively a zombie superpower maintained purely by her bullish military prowess. This is what makes its imperial crisis today so dangerous. It can no longer convince nations into its IMF/World Bank system (look how TPP failed), so all it can do to counter China’s economic challenge to US regional hegemony is to encircle her militarily.

    We saw how regional militarisation caused a series of accidents leading to WWI. Only the external intervention of the US public can halt this drive to nuclear war.
