‘The Coming War with China’ (2016)

A stirring production, and stark warning by award-winning journalist John Pilger.


Our weekly documentary film, curated by our editorial team at 21WIRE.

The Coming War on China, is a film by award-winning journalist John Pilger, which reveals the United States plan to isolate and ultimately force a nuclear confrontation with the nation of China, in the greatest build-up of NATO military forces since the Second World War. It began with President Obama’s ‘pivot to Asia’, and has been resumed by his successor Donald Trump, who foreshadowed a confrontation during his 2016 election campaign, saying, “We can’t continue to allow China to rape our country and that’s what they’re doing.” Pilger films on five possible front-lines across Asia and the Pacific, and documents the rapacious actions of the West.
