An absolute must-watch
25 January 2020 | by onceharmoniousSee all my reviews

As a current 'victim' of the US-UK-backed proxy war in Hong Kong, I found solace in Pilger's documentation of the foul and sinister intents of the US government. Something I always knew was coming from the early years of China's development in the early 1990s. It presents a simple truth - that the US is the modern world's school yard bully. This is a must-watch.
