“In March of 2016 the renowned Australian journalist and filmmaker John Pilger published an article titled ‘A world war has begun. Break the silence.’ which urgently warned of the US empire’s aggressive escalations against Russia and China. Re-reading parts of it in 2023 is like watching someone placing flags next to recently planted seeds that would eventually grow into the towering problems our world now faces. It’s like listening to a time traveler warning people from the past about a grave mistake they were about to make. Pilger points to US provocations in Ukraine, NATO militarism, and the encirclement of China and warns of the surging risk of nuclear war, noting that nuclear warhead spending ‘rose higher under Obama than under any American president.'” (09/06/23)
