Americans should watch this film to understand why so many view Americans as non-Christlike aggressors who only care about Americans. This is part of the real history of what we’ve done to others.
The film’s goal is to help people see America’s aggressions, including having almost 1,000 military bases worldwide, which Ron Paul so often talked about. Many Okinawans are currently outraged by our base there, and are trying to get it removed. Many of their women have been raped by GIs, etc..
This film is definitely one-sided, whitewashing China, whom many believe does have a world domination plan, and are gearing up to EMP and nuke US. I pulled this quote, which is absolutely not true:
1:00:25 “China’s objectives are modest, compared with their weight. They’re not trying to run the world.”
The film spends a lot of time showing the devastating effects of our brazen nuclear testing on the people in the Marshall Islands, who we treated as Guinea Pigs. Many died from cancer.
The adulterous bikini that blew off modest restraints was named after US blowing up Bikini Island. John Pilger explains:
15:05 “In 1946, the bikini swimsuit was launched to celebrate the nuclear explosions that have destroyed life on Bikini Island. … The bodies of the people of Bikini and other islands are the most irradiated in the world. All these women [in the photo] have had thyroid cancer.
‘The Secret of the Bikini Islands’
The site of US atomic bomb testing for many years, which notoriously lent its name to the swimsuit design, the Bikini Atoll within the Marshall Islands is “America’s strategic secret.” Lying in the vast Pacific Ocean between the US and Asia, the “once bountiful” atoll is a “stepping stone to Asia and China” for the US.
In 1946 the US took over the Marshall Islands as a trust territory, but turned it into a “laboratory for the testing of nuclear weapons, and its people into guinea pigs,” the film says, adding that effects of the atomic bomb were also tested on animals.
While the revealing swimsuit was named after US H-bomb detonations in Bikini Atoll, the bodies of the people on the islands were less celebrated than its wearers. They were among “the most radiated in the world.”
With test sites at sea, in the air, on reefs and underwater, the total yield of the nuclear experiments on and around the Marshall Islands was equal to 7,200 Hiroshima bombs, meaning the equivalent of more than one Hiroshima bomb was exploded in the area every day for 12 years, Pilger says. Bikini Island is till nowadays unfit for human life, he adds.
The area surrounding the crater of one of the greatest man-made explosions, from a hydrogen bomb called ‘Bravo’, is “by far the most contaminated place on Earth,” the film cites a US atomic energy official as saying. “It will be interesting to get a measure of human uptake when people live in a contaminated environment,” the official added, while the film explores the sufferings of the atoll locals, many of whom died of cancer.
“What the Americans did was no accident. They came here and destroyed our land. They came to test the effects of a nuclear bomb on us,” a local woman told the filmmaker.

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.
