Nukes are not only history: Discuss this on August 6 and 9 and all other days

Nukes are not only history: Discuss this on August 6 and 9 and all other days

August 6, 2020 It is natural and human to commemorate what happened in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. But these stories, films and photos from back then must never come to serve as a museum for just a historical event. It would also be fairly naive - now 75 years later - to believe that showing such [...]

Det danske fredsakademi siger sandheden forud for Hiroshima og Nagasaki 75

Det danske fredsakademi siger sandheden forud for Hiroshima og Nagasaki 75

22. juli 2020 Mens Danmark har m√¶ngder af velfinancierede institutter for milit√¶re studier samt et forsvarsakademi har det hverken et institut for fredsforskning eller et velfinancieret fredsakademi. Men Det Danske Fredsakademi findes - et h√łjkvalificeret initiativ, som du formentlig aldrig har h√łrt om. Det er i √•rtier blevet drevet af en ildsj√¶l ved navn Holger [...]

Endnu mere USansk selv√łdel√¶ggelse: Det nye k√¶rnev√•benkapl√łb mod Rusland og Kina

Endnu mere USansk selv√łdel√¶ggelse: Det nye k√¶rnev√•benkapl√łb mod Rusland og Kina

24. maj 2020 For nogle dage siden publicerede jeg et video-interview p√• vor stiftelses hjemmeside - ‚ÄúAmerica exists today to make war. How else do we interpret‚Ķ?‚ÄĚ med en h√łjtst√•ende, nu pensioneret, amerikansk oberst, Lawrence Wilkerson - gjort af Amy Goodman p√• det amerikanske online medie, Democracy Now!

A happier, less violent 2020

A happier, less violent 2020

December 30, 2019 Each and every problem humanity faces is rooted in violence. Why do so many continue believing in violence, the most counter-productive, unintelligent and expensive means of all? Violence invariably makes a problem between conflicting parties deeper and broader and every solution more difficult. It make the original problem ten times bigger. All [...]

Nuclear weapons states are terrorist states and these weapons are indefensible

Nuclear weapons states are terrorist states and these weapons are indefensible

August 6, 2019 - Hiroshima Day Thought you might like to see a discussion I participated in at the invitation of PressTV in - non-nuclear - Iran. And, like me, you may have wondered why the Western world's mainstream media largely ignore Hiroshima and Nagasaki Day? Well, I have a nasty mind: Because someone has [...]

NATO at 70: An unlawful organisation with serious psychological problems

NATO at 70: An unlawful organisation with serious psychological problems

The North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, NATO, celebrated its 70th Anniversary on April 4, 2019. Some of us don’t see anything worth celebrating about an incredibly expensive, dangerous and harmful alliance which should have been closed down exactly 30 years ago. Why 30 years ago? Because in 1989, the First Cold War in the Western sphere [...]

Fire danske pensionsselskaber har store investeringer i atomvåben

2. april 2019 ...fortæller dagbladet Information den 30. marts, 2019 i en fremragende, research-baseret artikel af Lasse Skou Andersen, Sebastian Gjerding og Bo Elkjær. Ja, hvorfor ikke? - kan man kun sige. Ingen har tænkt. Og har de tænkt, har de ingen forretningsetik eller personlig etik. Og der er vel ingen, der har overvejet at [...]

Hvorfor har Danmark ikke atomv√•ben? – sp√łrger Danmarks Radio

Hvorfor har Danmark ikke atomv√•ben? – sp√łrger Danmarks Radio

27. marts 2019 DR n√¶sten ikke til at b√¶re # 22 Den 4. marts stille public service mediet dette sp√łrgsm√•l. Artiklen er skrevet af Dan Giese Rasmussen, der if√łlge Linkedin ikke har nogen som helst kvalifikationer p√• sagsomr√•det atomv√•ben/sikkerhedspolitik. Han er derimod digital redakt√łr p√• DR efter en karriere p√• bl.a. Ekstrabladet, TV2 og Metro. [...]

Iran respekterer atomaftalen – USA g√łr det ikke

11. februar 2019 Idag er det 40 år siden millioner af iranere med sine demonstrationer afsatte Shahen af Iran og den islamiske revolution overtog magten. Det kan man have mange meninger om - og derfor har TFF idag udsendt en analyse af Dr. Farhang Jahanpour - Iran At Crossroads On 40th Anniversary of Its Islamic [...]

Peace illiteracy

Peace illiteracy

And why I am switching balances from the most noble and important - but momentarily meaningless - job to something more rewarding... February 1, 2019 Just yesterday, I posted this extremely important and modest appeal - the Basel Appeal - on our foundation's homepage, The Transnational, here. It was disseminated to social media, among others, [...]

Danmark st√łtter igen bombninger der er i klar strid med folkeretten

Den 12. april 2018 udtalte statsminister L√łkke Rasmussen sig s√•ledes til Danmarks Radio: Den amerikanske pr√¶sident Trump har den danske regerings fulde opbakning til at sende missiler afsted mod Assad-styret i Syrien.Det fastsl√•r statsminister Lars L√łkke Rasmussen (V), efter at han i dag m√łdtes med den tyske kansler, Angela Merkel, i Berlin.- Hvis verden skal [...]

Readying B-52 bombers – for what?

Here is the background article. Funnily, or perhaps not so strange, there is some denial of this story too. Perhaps it wasn't intended that it should end up in the public domain? And here my comments to this ill-considered escalation.

President Trump moves towards war on Iran

With his speech today - half an hour ago - U.S. President Trump has taken a huge step into uncharted territories. (Here on video). One that implies a 60-75% risk of leading to a US attack on Iran. Behind him stands the hardline militarists whom he has himself appointed. ‚Ä® Secondly, neo-conservative individuals and think tanks [...]

Anders Samuelsen og Nordkorea

Udenrigsminister Anders Samuelsen er langt dygtigere i rollen som USAs udenrigsambassad√łr end som dansk udenrigsminister. Citaterne i denne artikel vidner om omfattende uvidenhed om Nordkorea, historien om Nord og Syd, Ikkespredningsaftalen, konfliktl√łsning - herunder diplomatisk samtale - og atomv√•ben. M√łdet kan kun have bidraget til at cementere Nordkoreas oplevelse af at v√¶re tr√¶ngt og f√• [...]

Why NATO is obsolete – some arguments

Jan Oberg comments on NATO and the need for a much larger citizens-taxpayers movement against militarism since, for almost 70 years since 1949, NATO has failed miserably in creating the peace it says it aims at. In addition it is systematically violating its Treaty.

You’re invited to the Nuclear Denial Party

By Jan Oberg Lund, Sweden - Hiroshima Day, August 6, 2017 Welcome to the Nuclear Denial Party!! Since marketing, omitted and fake news have - to a worrying extent - replaced knowledge and ethics, why not celebrate that the media have omitted every mention of Hiroshima Day today? Why not celebrate that all the responsible [...]

New sanctions on Russia, Iran and North Korea

Does the U.S. have anything constructive and benign to offer the world anymore?In this comment on PressTV I list a series of arguments against these new sanctions which were passed by the US Senate two days later.
