The Coming War on China, from award winning journalist John Pilger, reveals what the news doesnt that the worlds greatest military power, the United States, and the worlds 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 cant continue to allow China to rape our country and thats what theyre 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.
Once China starts to see its economy begin to collapse, it will either die in a civil war or attempt to thrive in a small regional war.
I found the info on nuclear bomb testing in the Marshall Islands from 1946-1958 quite abominable . A stain on the USA’s rep around the world methinks . Most people unaware . I know I was .
No enemy would do us the favor of $ Trillions in improvements of our major urban centers. We are immune from nuclear attack.
Although there are lingering remnants of testing, the islands have recovered.
The Coming War on China
Headlines to jumpstart your day.
Where do you think they got all those movies?
Time to bring out your Dragon’s Fury series.
Yes, I remember some of that. It was where he ignored our European allies and attempted to make nice with the Chinese, by ignoring their aggression against their neighbors in Vietnam, Taiwan, Singapor, Indonesia, and the Philippines. He deliberately ignore China's takeover of reefs and rocks in direct violation of their treaty commitments.
President Obama refused to enforce our policy of freedom of the seas.
President Trump has re-ignited it.
Very likely, this film was financed by China.
McCain with the protestors and other bits are well worth watching:

Using the narrowest of terms, 9/11 cost the US one trillion dollars.
I used to own that book ! Bought it in Tokyo in fact .
China has no ability to wage war in the US. It’s silly to even contemplate it.
I guess it depends on your definition of war.
It has excellent cyber war potential; arguably already being used against us.
It likely has the ability to take out most of our satellite space resources. We depend on those a great deal.
It is, at minimum, studying how to take out our electric grid and communications network. It may have the capability to do that. We have been negligent in developing robust protections for them.
Are those capabilities included in your assessment?
The negligence in mandating protections of electronic, communications,
and electrical systems has been both corporate and governmental issues.
This is due primarily to concerns about who should bear the expense of such protections: business or government.
Have we already forgotten the 2013 incident in California whereby transformers were shot by a gunman,
and this incident led to almost cascading collapse of the electrical system in the Silicon Valley.
Some call it vandalism, some call it terrorism, but regardless, it demonstrates the level of our vulnerability.
See: "Attack on electric grid raises alarm (LA Times ^ | February 6, 2014 )"
Just like all the substations in America...<sarcasm>
Thanks,.. I now feel so much more secure.. NOT !
The other issue about this sabotage that concerns me is the fact that this information
wasn't made to the public until almost 1 1/2 years after the fact.
We are still currently facing rocket EMP threats from Iran, North Korea and China,
while at the same time China is hacking corporate and military information off the internet.
Our electrical and electronic infrastructure still remains vulnerable almost 7 years later,
and nothing has been done to protect them.
