Peter Lee, aka @chinahand, returns to the show to discuss his new documentary General Douglas MacArthur’s Conspiracy To Start A War With China. Lee describes the history of U.S.-China tensions dating back to the 1950s, MacArthur’s trigger happy attitude toward nuclear weapons, and how MacArthur and the military almost provoked full-fledged war with China. Lee then details the looming tensions between the U.S. and China that may boil over into conflict and explains why, even with China, blame can be assigned disproportionately to Dick Cheney.

Peter Lee is the editor of China Matters and the host of China Watch at NewsBud. He is the director and narrator of the new documentary General Douglas MacArthur’s Conspiracy To Start A War With China. Follow him on Twitter @chinahand.
