Introduction

The Coming War on China is John Pilger’s 60th film for ITV. Pilger reveals what the news does not – that the United States and the world’s second economic power, China (both nuclear armed) are on the road to war. Pilger’s film is a warning and an inspiring story of resistance.

Outline

Pilger’s film The Coming War on China premiered in the UK on Thursday 01 December 2016, and was shown on ITV at 10.40 pm on Tuesday 06 December and on the Australian public broadcaster SBS on 16 April 2017.

In the documentary, according to Pilger, “the evidence and witnesses warn that nuclear war is no longer a shadow, but a contingency. The greatest build-up of American-led military forces since the Second World War is well under way. They are on the western borders of Russia, and in Asia and the Pacific, confronting China. Like the renewal of post-Soviet Russia, the rise of China as an economic power is declared an ‘existential threat’ to the divine right of the United States to rule and dominate human affairs”.
