Peter Handke og DR Deadline’s dovenskab

13. oktober 2019 Peter Handke får Nobels Litteraturpris 2019 og jeg skriver på min Facebook-side: Tillykke, Peter HandkeDen "gale" forfatter, der tænkte for komplekst, begavet og retfærdigt om Vestens galskab i Jugoslavien og demonisering af alle serber. Godt nok at dét nu kan trækkes frem. Og han får oprettelse. Dette lille hurtige statement fulgtes af…

Ved Niels Helveg Petersens død

Det er klart der i dag skrives smukke og på mange måder rigtige nekrologer. Hér et et eksempel fra Danmarks Radio med overskriften at Helveg Petersen var indbegrebet af det Radikale Venstre. Men den anti-militarisme, som engang var et grundlæggende element i de Radikales program og politik, var ikke så "indbegrebet" i hans tænkning. Niels…

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%…

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,…

Sovjetisk udredning om Danmarks krigsdeltagelse

Politikens Breaking News fortæller at tre såkaldt danske krige skal udredes af en historiker og en politolog; det har et folketingsflertal lige besluttet. Avisen fortæller også at der er meget store forskelle på denne udredning og den nedlagte Irak-kommission. Og det har den helt ret i. 17 år efter NATO's ødelæggelse af Serbien skal Kosovo-krigen…

16 years since NATO started its war on Yugoslavia – all criminals still at large

Today - 16 years since NATO began to bomb Serbia and did so mercilessly for 78 days to carve out Kosovo as an independent state - still today a failed one. Remember that when you talk about Crimea today. Here is a link to "Yugoslavia - What Should Have Been Done?" - probably the world's…

Kosovo – the West’s predictable fiasco

Baffling Kosovo mass exodus exposes domestic hardships - Al Jazeera 5% of the people have left, 100,000 this year. Funny how in the 1990s the only problems were Serbs and Belgrade. NATO bombed and forced Kosovo out of Yugoslavia. Billions of dollars have poured in from the world; EU, NATO etc. helped build the country. When…

Depiction of the Spiral of Violence

Or, rather, of violence against violence + terrorism against terrorism. Among the marchers against terrorism and for freedom of expression we find leaders from France, Denmark, Egypt, Italy, Turkey, Russia, the U.S., Israel, Britain, Saudi Arabia, Bahrein and Ukraine. What do they have in common? A deep belief in violence - violence of various types:…

Partilederdebatten om attentatet på Charlie Hebdo

En beslægtet version på engelsk hér: Blandt verdens mange voldelige handlinger, krige og terrorhandlinger vælger Danmarks Radio at afholde en partilederdebat om netop denne terroraktion, der - så tragisk og afskyelig som den er - kostede 12 mennesker livet på et lille ugeblad i Paris. Den skal, hedder det - og tages uden videre som…

► ► TFF PressInfo # 288 – Where it all went wrong and lessons were never learnt

TFF PressInfo # 288 – Where it all went wrong and lessons were never learnt Why the "conflict management" and "peace making" by the West during the dissolution of Yugoslavia was much more important for our time and what happens now than anticipated. Much of the terrible crisis we see today was started by policies…

26 years ago on November 9: Fall of the Berlin Wall

26 years ago on November 9: Fall of the Berlin Wall It was thanks to Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev that this symbol of division fell. In my view, one of the greatest statesmen of our times - unfortunately never supported by exploited by a triumphalist, winner-takes-it-all West. Those of us who remember those days and…

► ► Bosnia today and Yugoslavia then

Voting has begun in Bosnia in an election dominated by nationalist rhetoric and a stagnant economy. A good 2000 pages by three scholars who were present during the wars in Yugoslavia and did not buy the Western political and media simplifications and blame game. Neither did they buy the Western 'peace' making, the results of…

Fogh Rasmussen efterlader en verden i kaos

Interview med Jens Malling - Publiceret i Arbejderen Efterlader en verden i kaos Anders Fogh Rasmussen træder tilbage som Natos generalsekretær i dag efter fem år på posten. Aggressivitet over for Rusland og hykleri når det gælder Irak har ifølge fredsforsker Jan Øberg kendetegnet hans sidste år i spidsen for organisationen. Et udtryk for Vestens…

Per T. Ohlsson – mannen utan vilja att förstå?

Hej! Tack för ditt mejl. Många inlägg konkurrerar om utrymmet på Aktuella frågor och jag måste tyvärr tacka nej till din replik. Skickar din text vidare till Per T Ohlsson. Vänliga hälsningar Eva Rothstein Debattredaktör Sydsvenskan   Per T. Ohlssons artikel ”Mannen utan själ” om ”psykopaten” Putin är orimlig och bedrövligt anti-intellektuell. Ryssland diskuteras inte…

Debat med Pelle Dragsted, Enhedslisten, om militærtransporten til Irak og kurderne

Debatten begyndte med mit indlæg på Facebook den 25. august 2014: "☮ ☮ Trist med et folketing blottet for moral og nytænkning hvor ikke ét eneste medlem tør gå imod tidens vås om humanistiske krige. OK, danske F16-fly skal vel ikke bombe (endnu) men man ER i krig når man bistår USA og én part…
