In John Pilger’s 60th film for ITV, The Coming War on China sheds light on an issue missed by mainstream media. Two nuclear armed nations, the US and the world’s second biggest economic power, China, are on the road to war.Amid The Coming War on China providing a very timely warning, John Pilger also presents an inspiring story of resistance.While the media has given some attention (and rightly so) to concerns about Russia, what is happening in the Pacific has been ignored. Simmering territorial disputes in the South China Sea are the tip of the iceberg, as the Obama administration has overseen the largest buildup of nuclear arsenal in history. Much of this increase has been directed to the “pivot to Asia”, providing a clear focus from the US on the region. It is clear, that the US is ready to aggressively counter any Chinese aspiration to convert commercial prosperity into regional power.Pilger provides historical context to what these moves represent, filling in the gaps to the strategic moves being made. Added to this, the recent moves of Donald Trump, encouraging America to consider China the enemy, it seems the buildup to war has no signs of abating any time soon. Overall, Pilger’s film, The Coming War on China, provides a corrective view to the indifference and complacency that has plagued the new war-game scenario building in the Pacific.
