As each of the thRee-of-us backed into each others back due to advancing armies “all thRee of them” I met John PilgeR and SeymouR Hersh. Were they lucky I wondeRed, but I knew I was pleased that we each spoke english quite, well. The year was 1981 and the state was Lebanon and Jordan, as we were atop an ancient paved in flat-stones: gRanite, best descRibed as ancient Rome or where ameRicans got the ideas for paved stReets 19-centuRy-HistoRy! John is one thorough “documentaRian” whose backlog of expanding upon the Journalist principles was his mannerist appRoach w movie-the-video cameRas utility.

“The Coming War on China, from award winning journalist John Pilger, reveals what the news doesn’t – that the world’s greatest military power, the United States, and the world’s second economic power, China, both nuclear-armed, may well be on the road to war.
Nuclear war is not only imaginable, but planned. The greatest build-up of NATO military forces since the Second World War is under way on the western borders of Russia. On the other side of the world, the rise of China is viewed in Washington as a threat to American dominance.
To counter this, President Obama announced a ‘pivot to Asia’, which meant that almost two-thirds of all US naval forces would be transferred to Asia and the Pacific, their weapons aimed at China. A policy which has been taken up by his successor Donald Trump, who during his election campaign said “We can’t continue to allow China to rape our country and that’s what they’re doing”.
Filmed on five possible front-lines across Asia and the Pacific over two years, the story is told in chapters that connect a secret and ‘forgotten’ past to the rapacious actions of great power today and to a resistance, of which little is known in the West.”
