Tyrkiet forbryder sig mod FN og folkeretten

3. marts 2020 Tak til Arbejderen og Anders Fenger for at man fokuserer på og støtter at folkeretten og FN-Pagten - der trædes under fode af alle regeringer, hotheads og ukyndige - er vigtig. Det er fortvivlende få medier, der har denne holdning. FN-Pagten er det mest gandhianske dokument menneskeheden har. Uden folkeretten, FN og…

EU words, words and words on the Iran nuclear deal: What about action?

January 13, 2020 European allies of the U-S have turned down a request by the American President to leave the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran, the JCPOA. France says it remains committed to the Iran deal, and will continue to work with other parties. Britain has pledged to remain committed too. Prime Minister Boris Johnson…

Open letter to Nordea Bank concerning the sanctions on Iran

September 29, 2019 By Jan Oberg IntroBelow please find a letter I wrote more than 3 months ago to the Nordic bank, Nordea - present in roughly 20 countries around the world.Since then, I have been waiting for an answer, but none has arrived. I believe it should have been possible for Chairman of the…

The West has done a Jeffrey Epstein on Syria – and it continues…

September 3, 2019 Its all so easy...so very easy... perhaps so easy that only criminals get it? And get away with it? About rape at different levels - and how we relate to them Kurds violently carve out their own state on sovereign Syria's territory. Turkey hates Kurds and is itself a main destroyer of…

War without remorse: A callous tweet about a tasteless celebration

August 23, 2019 Yesterday, the US Ambassador to Denmark, Carla Sands, tweeted the following: https://twitter.com/USAmbDenmark/status/1164505164201517056 As will be seen below, there were four photos from an event in Copenhagen. The first shows all the people present, including former Danish Prime minister Fogh Rasmussen (also on the 4th photo with the ambassador), the present Danish defence…

Risikoen for krig mod Iran

16. juli 2019 Arbejderen er tilsyneladende den eneste danske avis, der er interesseret i "andre" synspunkter på denne konflikt end de gængse mainstream, styret af amerikanske interesser og nyhedsbureauer. Det er jeg selvsagt taknemmelig for. Hér kan du læse hvordan jeg ser på hele historien og bedømmer risikoen for at en krig bryder ud -…

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…

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,…

Why is the UN still so important – while it must also be reformed?

Why is the UN still so important - in spite of having had its Charter violated repeatedly during the last 25 years? https://www.facebook.com/obergpeace.artphotographics/videos/287165988441422/ Why should we not - cynically - side with the cynical and powerful countries that want to undermine and marginalise the world's finest organisation with the most Gandhian-like document ever signed by…

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. 
 
 Secondly, neo-conservative individuals…

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.

How many Americans has al-Assad killed?

I read dozens of articles every day about various conflict zones, commentaries, war reports and - the few times it happens - possibilities of peace. I read about Syria in particular as I have since I visited Damascus and Aleppo in December 2016. It's important that one does not, over time, develop the disease called…

Dette er ikke hverdag i Aleppo

Amnesty International lader i disse uger en bus udsmykke med et reklameslogan hvilket er blevet opfanget af Adweek Adfreak som "remarkable" markedsføring. Det er det skam - men af andre grunde end den der fremhæves i artiklen. Dette billede pryder også hele forsiden på Amnesty's hjemmeside. Har Amnesty ikke lagt mærke til at Aleppo blev…

The BAN Treaty – it’s significance and why some have isolated themselves from civilisation

A debate on PressTV between Jan Oberg and Jim Walsh, MIT Here is a link to a partial transcript

Intellectual nonsense about Syria

There should be a lower intellectual level to the statements by a US Secretary of Defence. There should be a debunking of the unethical behaviour that repeatedly state that there is only a political solution to Syria and continue to use only violence. There should be a discussion about international law here. There should be…

The future of U.S.-Europe relations

"The Debate" with Jim Walsh, MIT and Jan Oberg, TFF Lund, Sweden – May 30, 2017 Last night “The Debate” on PressTV was devoted to the future of European-US relations in the wake of the NATO Summit, President Trump’s words and omissions and the – historic – words, in particular, of Chancellor Angela Merkel immediately…

NATO should be dissolved – 8 arguments

This is TFF Live on Facebook - the live broadcast I do now and then because live broadcasts have a much larger dissemination than articles, images, texts and Youtube videos. You may find more here. I argue why I believe NATO belongs to the past and should have been dissolved when the Soviet Union and…

Lost peace and fake news

By Jan Oberg Proud to join "Middle East With Naskah Zada" at her program in New York and talking about the reasons that peace has become so 'unpopular'. Touching also upon international law, the new Cold War and the increasing U.S. involvement in Syria.
