With the threat of war coming from all corners of the world, nuclear war is becoming something that is no longer unthinkable. The Coming War on China is a new documentary created by award-winning journalist John Pilger about the rising tensions between the United States and China. According to Pilger China’s recent activity of claiming back territories in South China is actually in a response to US military activity encroaching on their borders. After US president Barak Obamas’ approval of military projects in Asia in 2011 more than 400 military bases surround China. These have been progressively built since the second war and continue to be.
This is an extraordinary story that rarely sees any light in western main-stream media. In fact, China is reported to be the aggressor in this situation but there is another side to the story which Pilger paints a picture of in the documentary, Coming War on China. It’s obvious that nobody wants nuclear war but a relaxed approach to the idea of actually using them is meaning, as John Pilger describes, we are heading down the same path as what happened during the Cuban missile crisis.
