Afghanistan-fiaskoen som bagtæppe for våbenkonference i Aalborg

"Kill, kill, kill for peace...!" (Tuli Kupferberg) Arbejderen er naturligvis den eneste,der mener at den h√©r slags nyheder ogs√• er v√¶rd at bringe. Tak for det! Afghanistan - den forudsigelige v√•ben- og krigsfiasko - m√• da danne et fint bagt√¶ppe til denne messe: V√•ben er nyttige, neutrale og kan l√łse alle politiske og samfundsm√¶ssige problemer, [...]

Biden bombs in Syria – helping to steal its oil but what is there to talk about?

Biden bombs in Syria – helping to steal its oil but what is there to talk about?

And Western media either don't tell you or operate as one megaphone for the administration and Pentagon. Pentagon on February 25, 2021: "At President Biden's direction, US military forces earlier this [Thursday] evening conducted airstrikes against infrastructure utilized by Iranian-backed militant groups in eastern Syria," said spokesman John Kirby in a statement on Friday. "These [...]

“Russerne kommer!” – med kinesiske v√¶rnemidler til det Danmark, der misbrugte sine penge p√• krig i stedet for menneskelig sikkerhed

“Russerne kommer!” – med kinesiske v√¶rnemidler til det Danmark, der misbrugte sine penge p√• krig i stedet for menneskelig sikkerhed

I den ene fjendes fly leverer den anden fjende bistand til et land, der har k√łbt sig fattig i krig i stedet for at beskytte sin befolkning. 8. april 2020 - #coronaissecuritypolitics Russerne kommer!! Det har vi h√łrt i vel omkring 70 √•r - den konstruede fjende, der skulle legitimere oprustning, Danmarks krigsdeltagelse, flyk√łb, koldkrigsretorik [...]

Tyrkiet forbryder sig mod FN og folkeretten

Tyrkiet forbryder sig mod FN og folkeretten

3. marts 2020 Tak til Arbejderen og Anders Fenger for at man fokuserer p√• og st√łtter at folkeretten og FN-Pagten - der tr√¶des under fode af alle regeringer, hotheads og ukyndige - er vigtig. Det er fortvivlende f√• medier, der har denne holdning. FN-Pagten er det mest gandhianske dokument menneskeheden har. Uden folkeretten, FN og [...]

Risikoen for krig mod Iran

Risikoen for krig mod Iran

16. juli 2019 Arbejderen er tilsyneladende den eneste danske avis, der er interesseret i "andre" synspunkter p√• denne konflikt end de g√¶ngse mainstream, styret af amerikanske interesser og nyhedsbureauer. Det er jeg selvsagt taknemmelig for. H√©r kan du l√¶se hvordan jeg ser p√• hele historien og bed√łmmer risikoen for at en krig bryder ud - [...]

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 [...]

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" markedsf√łring. Det er det skam - men af andre grunde end den der fremh√¶ves i artiklen. Dette billede pryder ogs√• hele forsiden p√• Amnesty's hjemmeside. Har Amnesty ikke lagt m√¶rke til at Aleppo blev [...]

What foreign policy if the US had no weapons?

Just a thought...

Syria – two perspectives illustrated

"The Debate" of April 16, 2017 on Iran's PressTV between Richard Millett and myself is important to me. I think it will be for you too in the sense of clarifying two approaches and positions on Syria. Its focus is on the difference in media coverage of the terrible events in Khan Seykhoun and al-Rashideen [...]

The Meaninglessness of War: Aleppo

Snak om Syrien på en måde der fremmer fred!

En "meta"-kommentar i Arbejderen til den d√łdf√łdte m√•de man diskuterer konflikter p√•, is√¶r Syrien. Diskursen kommer aldrig frem til at sige noget v√¶sentligt om fred - og den gavner ingen i Syrien, mindst af alt de uskyldige, der lider frygteligt i disse √•r. Man kan faktisk snakke om tingene p√• en anden m√•de. Se h√©r! (Kommentar [...]

MS – Markedsf√łrt Sandhed og Syrien? Med till√¶g om en god dialog

Introduktion tilf√łjet den 7. februar 2017 Som det fremg√•r i en kommentar under denne artikel blev b√•de MS' forkvinde, Helle Munk Ravnborg og generalsekret√¶r, Tim Whyte, kede af min udl√¶gning omkring MS "markedsf√łring" og holdning til Syrien. Naturligt nok. Mit indl√¶g var skarpt formuleret - der skal af og til sparkes i l√łgsovsen ogs√• for den gode [...]
