with i pity a country that would come up against us. the synergy with their land and sea forces and in our ability to control the battle space and seize the high ground is devastating all countries respect the power of the united states in that respect how dominant we are in this region and we get better and better better and . tonight attend a reg limps of china's on vicious expansion in one of the world's most contested regions we report from the south china sea where the chinese are warning off anyone who comes too close to that building program we continue our look this morning and

what china does not want you to see the united states as the superpower is reclaiming land in the south china sea the fact that we're dealing with a situation right now where we the u.s. has to be much more aggressive in dealing with the chinese government c.n.n. has learned the u.s. navy is about to send a destroyer there let's go to our c.n.n. c.n.n. got exclusive access to classified u.s. surveillance flights over the islands and. the threat to china is becoming big news the media is beating the drums of war as the world is being primed to regard china as a new enemy china's alarming creation of entirely new territory in the south china sea is one part of a broader military push that some fear is to challenge us dominance in the region. china is building in strips in the south china sea on disputed islands condemned by an international tribunals this is now a flashpoint for war between china and america. what is not
3:08 pm
news is that china itself is under threat. these american bases form a joint news in circling china with missiles bombers warships all the way from a straight through the pacific to asia and beyond. i mean if you were in beijing looking out stood on the tallest building in beijing and looked out of the pacific ocean you'd see american warships you'd see guam is about to sink because there's so many missiles pointed at china you look up the korean see american armaments pointing at china you'd see japan which is basically. japan's a glove over the american fist i think if i was chinese i'd have a little to worry about about american aggressiveness and we have china surrounded and we're doing more all the time to try and keep it surrounded and deepen that
3:09 pm
containment of china. but china presents a fascinating case of a country that is independent doesn't have foreign bases on its territory. growing very rapidly not as rapidly now as it did for thirty years but still the second ranking economy in the world we have an adversary and that adversary is china and that adversary unless there is dramatic reform inside china will be our enemy someday when miss. i think really the needs to be dispelled somehow china's aiming to replace america and going to run the world. well first of all the chinese are not that stupid the west with its christian. roots are about converting other people into their beliefs the chinese are not about that it's just the again i'm not degrading the western

culture i'm just pointing out being hara nature of the d.n.a. is a two different cultures the chinese two thousand years ago built the great wall to keep the barbarians out and not to invade the. as the world's economic power moves rapidly to asia the response of the united states is to deploy the majority of its naval forces to asia and the pacific this massive military buildup is known in washington as the pivot to asia the target is china. the great power game in the twenty first century it's called put petrol or. for america's unchallenged dom's industry the annual prize is huge profits from almost six hundred billion dollars of military spending.
3:11 pm
once an imaginary weapon on star wars the electromagnetic gun is now reality you're sitting there thinking about these next generation and futuristic ideas and we've got scientists who have designed these things and it's coming to life. and the smartest weapons made enemies as a pacific nation and the united states will play a larger and long term role in shaping this region and its future i have directed my national security team to make our presence and mission in the asia pacific a top priority in one sentence is for us already at war with china yes on the ground and in the air the winner of the nobel peace prize president barack obama has committed to trillions of dollars of to our nuclear arsenal he's committed trillions of future dollars to war in space and we need an enemy for
3:12 pm
all this money and china is the perfect enemy. the aim of this film is to break a silence the united states and china may well be on a path toward a nuclear war is no longer unthinkable in a few years china has become the world's second biggest economic power the united states is the world's biggest military power with bases and missiles and ships covering every continent and every ocean china is a threat to this dominance says washington who is the threat this film is about shifting and great danger it's also a film about the human spirit and the rise of an extraordinary resistance among people on the frontline of a coming war where the words never again have an urgent meaning for all of us.
3:13 pm

3:18 pm
not evacuated and people. so that only leaves one one up but i don't believe that number one in the united states made this from guinea pigs to extend the thought that. the effects of radiation would do and it's a pretty strong indication if you know the station knew it it seems extraordinary here we are this far into the twenty first century talking to people still frightened of all that nuclear fallout all those tests all those years ago the impression i get is that there's sort of a little trust the most people the u.s. is trying to provide as much information as much good information as we can and so i wouldn't accept the characterization that that there have been lives and. the word guinea pigs comes up a lot from the survives i would i would refer you to our embassy website on that

3:41 pm
shiny new at their own the united. one of the myths about mao is that he was an implacable enemy of the capitalist west. shanghai today is a prosperous international city still run by the communists at least in. my. when i was last in china more than a generation ago the loudest noise was the tinkling of bicycle bells now just the streets were dark the universities were closed the chaos of the cultural
3:42 pm
revolution had given way to a great silence where exhausted was the freest comment i heard. coming back the change was barely comprehensible here in shanghai the freedom bears no comparison yes there are issues with human rights especially the right to speak against the state and challenge its power since i was last here millions of people of been lifted out of poverty many of them into an entirely new middle class this is still barely understood in the west or should there be wilfully misunderstood the truth is that china has matched america crn great game of capitalism and that is one forgivable. one measure of china's new capitalism is the run ritualised this league table of

3:44 pm
irony is not released this museum that was once the house where mounties comrades secretly found of the communist party of china in one nine hundred twenty one. today it stands in the heart of an exclusive fairy capitalist shopping district. when you leave the shrine to china's great revolution you're confronted by a surreal spectacle for right outside where the chinese communist party was blown all the very symbols of capitalism stocks apple. all shake up.
3:45 pm
and down there perhaps the free market is greatest triumph bottled water but in shoals you live young costing six pounds for a small bottle in my hotel. spin and as to if he was here i'm not so sure hidden history is always a key to the truth five years before his great communist revolution in one hundred forty nine mts sent this secret message to washington and china must industrialize right now this can only be done by free enterprise chinese and american interests fit together economically and politically america need not fear that we will not be cooperative we cannot risk crossing america we cannot risk any conflict. received no reply. nothing has changed.
3:46 pm
mouse a tongue was looking to be a friend with the united states from the beginning ma says i will go meet franklin roosevelt in the white house reaches out nine hundred fifty to harry truman he reaches out to dwight eisenhower his hand was tossed away. this help. ciarán a-t. that might have changed history prevented wars save countless lives was lost because the truth of miles over true was was denied in the washington of the one nine hundred fifty s. . state department officials who had carried mao's messages were condemned down justly as communist traitors. everybody who knew who spoke cheney's was gone in the one nine hundred fifty s. the state department had no employees who spoke cheney. it's resulted in us not
3:47 pm
having relations with the number one most populous country in the world in one thousand nine hundred seventy nine this man. paying became china's paramount leader he said socialism does not mean shared poverty. this was code for the most radical reforms since miles revolution. the return of capitalism to china but this time controlled by the communist party. to be riches glorious day and was reported as saying. america was now threatened by the emergence of a vast image of itself. this is one of the many very exclusive gated communities in shanghai where an apartment is one
3:48 pm
of the prices of the new communism. i had a range to see professor zion way way a close aide to the late things paying the man who changed china. they're in. really extremely. long term visionary the leader will exceed the long term strategic vision for his country for his people that chinese do you follow that path you know they're true this is really a tradition from china's along history you look at even like mao he said we should you know surpass u.k. . which was supplied by which so they didn't used to this day. actually or many chinese have problem with the
3:49 pm
western media is this theory about china if you. contend with fear it hypes you missed so many things you know if the b.b.c. broadcast something they are happy to always mention this comment is to dictatorship this autocracy not actually with this one label even though you cannot understand this china as it is but if you watch b.b.c. c.n.n. or read economist and try to understand china it will be a failure it's impossible. multiple parties fight for political power and everyone involved in on them is the only path to salvation for the long suffering that's. a shanghai entrepreneur educated in america and typical of a new confident outspoken political class in china there are a lot of problems but at the moment the chinese the party state has
3:50 pm
proven an extraordinary ability to change me i make the joke. in america you can change political parties but you can't change policies. in china you cannot change the party but you can change policies. so in a sixty five or sixty six years china is being run by one single party yet. the political changes that have taken place in china in the past sixty six years have been wider and broader and greater than probably any other major country in modern memory so in that time china ceased to be communist patrol so well china is a market economy and survivor a market economy but it is not a capitalist country here's why there is no way a group of billionaires could control the politburo. the owners control
3:51 pm
american policymaking so in china you have a vibrant market economy but capital does not rise above put of course already capital is not does not have in trying rights in america capital the interest of capital and capital itself has risen above the name of the american nation the political authority cannot check the power of capital and that's why america is a catalyst country but china is not this is the ironic title of a bestselling book by zhang leisure a journalist and critic who lives in beijing many americans imagine that the chinese people live miserable repressed her life these no freedom western ever that's not quite sure if you toss speak to many ordinary
3:52 pm
chinese people they will tell you that they feel that their life i quite free some five hundred million people being lifted out of poverty and some would say probably six hundred million people that's a great achievement. for many americans the yellow peril has never left and i think of the there's the fear about china of course there's a fear for china's rapid rise but it's also has a lot to do. with china's. the label as a communist and state china's object of some modest compare with their weight they're not trying to run the world then i mean trying to run asia pacific i think they want to keep america from dominating the asia pacific so they have what they believe is their rightful place in asia
3:53 pm
pacific because alaska was asian our history and their size so their objectives are really modest compared with their capacity to the the world for new wealth in china and i often say this is this is the product of so entrepreneur school but it's not also the product of the exploitation of people at the bottom what are known in china as migrants but they're not really migrants so. if you really. go to port to this my woodworkers you will find quite surprisingly. over the past five to seven years they have experienced. greater income increase their. social groups china not a car society. but china is a class society. these are the homes of migrant workers
3:54 pm
people who build and service the new china. here it's not uncommon for three families to share one tiny flower. you know you would so see it it's a socialist country is a call with equality but i'm fortunately since the reform has started china has become one of the most unequal societies in the word the income gap is widening governments i feel have retreated some of the responsibilities left the markets to take over by the market does not always treat women kindly. private companies they would just refuse to high and child's bearing age women and sometimes when women become pregnant they want second because they don't want to pay the matelote leave
3:55 pm
and in fact a the income gap has grown much bigger between men and women your old boss found presided over the bloodshed and tear them square what would you say to the survivors of tiananmen square because so many of those did fight for what they saw as democratic change in china. in ninety eight hundred nine there were two political force one was those represented by the chinese students their hero was me how you go back trough who happen to be a chief. slogan was soviet union's today charles to more so the idea was a political reform first as. reform second otherwise chano be hopeless and does mess
3:56 pm
you would you opposite he so go but you will eat it yeah he sold you know china must have economic reform first as a reform second this power. must be set clear. canara is the front line of a beckoning war with china we can't continue to allow china to rape our country and that's what they're doing there never have been two countries more into dependent on each other than china us in history there's like a total disconnect with the changing world you have a giant rising power in this case china. why would you expect the giant rising power to not want to have more control over its destiny orders and. what is that what's the purpose i mean where are we going to stop this process before it starts a war. and then if the war starts where does that end.
3:57 pm
