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 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.

    “NOTE! This programme is no longer available due to copyright restrictions”

    …so I attached this comment ~

    ‘I’d like details of the copyright restrictions please, and a full explanation of why it has been made unavailable in the UK…is this state censorship?’

    As our sacred planet is degraded ever further into uninhabitable hell by the demented architects of perfidy, latter-day climate deniers can seek comfort and perpetual solace from their masters’ wilting assurances of immunity, rejoicing forever in Madeleine Albright’s wondrously callous hymn to infanticidal optimism ~ “it was worth it…”
