Anvender DR og DIIS screening?

Hvis ikke hvorfor er alsidighed så ophørt på udenrigspolitikkens område? DR’s dækning af forsvar, sikkerhed og udenrigspolitik bør diskuteres langt mere Der skal nok være nogen, der tror at jeg har fået DR på hjernen. Men jeg skriver ofte – og ugerne – om DR’s behandling af forsvars-, sikkerheds- og udenrigspolitikken fordi det: a) handler om eksistentielle ting, om krig […]

Discussing NATO with a former U.S. Ass. Sec. of Defence

A 30 min debate about NATO, Ukraine, Crimea, Yugoslavia, Syria the eternal enemy images and the – obsolete – philosophy on which NATO builds. Time for something new, I argue in the debate with former U.S. Assistant Secretary of Defence under Reagon, Mr. Lawrence J. Korb who at the time was in command of 70% of Pentagon’s budget. Here in TFF PressInfo # 403  is a little longer text about this debate and there is also a little about my experience and policy vis-a-vis the media.

Hjort Frederiksens Danmark og Honeckers Østtyskland

Der var en gang sikkerhedspolitik var vigtigt og krævede sagkundskab Jeg er gammel nok til at huske danske politikere, der have kundskab om forsvar, sikkerhed og fred som f.eks. Lasse Budtz, Kjeld Olesen, Gert Petersen, Bilgrav-Nielsen, Jytte Hilden, Poul Hartling, Anker Jørgensen, Preben Wilhjelm. Nogle af dem skrev bøger om international politik. Jeg kendte flere af dem, sad i Sikkerheds- og Nedrustningspolitiske […]

I wonder about Aleppo…

By Jan Oberg I shot this simple video out of the window on December 13, 2016. I wonder about Aleppo and say #keepfocusonaleppo © Jan Oberg 2016 Here in the Sheikh Najjar Industrial City outside Aleppo lived and worked 40,000 people. It had 50% of Syria’s industrial capacity. Today – after the occupation by Western-backed militants and terrorist groups – this is what is left. I wonder why the Syrian government did not destroy this industrial city between 2000 and 2012. We are told that all this destruction is caused only by that side and the dictator kills his own. I wonder where the terrorists used the weapons and spent the money they got from NATO countries – Turkey in particular – Saudi and Qatar since they did not do any of this destruction here – according to Western media and the White Helmet reporters and a series of humanitarian organisations. I also wonder where the Western left is? Solidarity with the workers who lived here? No many among them defend this and want to arm this or that group even more. The more I study, the more I wonder. And something doesn’t seem right.
