Learn how China managed COVID-19: A rolling guide

March 20, 2020 It should be obvious that China and it's 1400 million people have managed this grave challenge in a way that should make every thinking human curious. However a large segment of the Western politicians - Trump in particular - and media have shown no particular curiosity whereas much has been presented about…

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…

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…

TFF’s Transnational Peace Affairs – A new magazine

August 21, 2019 I have long wanted to produce something like a magazine - a daily, diverse drumbeat - that is also easy and fast to curate and edit. Because... I've been grappling with this: The world is to rich and diverse: Why are mainstream media so predictable/boring, narrowly focused, uniform - I mean, buy…

Why the Kim-Trump Summit was a – predictable – fiasco

February 28, 2019 Peace can never be achieved this way a) The issue is about peace, not only nuclear weapons. The US has not been willing to sign a peace agreement after all these years. After some kind of peace process and treaty has been achieved, you can turn to the specific issue of nuclear…

Of course, they deceive you

Because of ignorance, lack of honouring basic journalistic standards and political correctness vis-a-vis owners and governments. February 23, 2019 Of course, the freedom of the free Western mainstream media means the freedom to deceive, use fake and omission as much as they like. Here is a well-informed article by Marc Cook in the media-analytical, critical…

Apple, Facebook, Spotify and YouTube remove Alex Jones and Infowars content

  That's what New York Times told us on August 6, 2018, here. How sad for a West that no longer believes in its own core values but goes increasingly authoritarian. In the name of the common good, we get the common bad. 1. What a weak, nervous and insecure society it is that cannot…

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…

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.

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 US/NATO confrontation with Russia is dangerous

TFF Live April 12, 2017 The secretaries of state, Tillerson and Lavrov meet today. We seem to enter a stage of what must appropriately be perceived as a frosty new Cold War. In the worst of cases this can lead to a new Cuban Missile Crisis. God forbid! https://www.facebook.com/obergpeace.artphotographics/videos/204607170030638/

Peace plan for Syria – first steps

A quick comment - expressive of a slight frustration. It doesn't even occur to the reporter - the Washington Post's bureau chief in Beirut - that she is talking about international aggression. Can everybody just use Syria for whatever games they please? Welcome to follow me on my new public page.   https://www.facebook.com/obergpeace.artphotographics/posts/186361575188531

Keep focus on Aleppo and global dimensions of Syria

  TFF PressInfo # 405  Lund, Sweden - February 24, 2017 Failed conflict analysis To analyse a conflict is as necessary as the diagnosis for the doctor: You either get to a solution/treatment or you don't. If the diagnosis is deficient, you don't. You instead risk killing the patient. And it's deficient of you stare…

School in an Aleppo factory

The occupiers denied children education. Now they get it.   TFF's first four photo series from Aleppo have been seen by 95,000 people so far and been featured in online magazines from Vietnam to California, among them a German site with a million visitors daily. Above is the fifth story. It's about the terrible, systematic destruction of this UNESCO…

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 https://www.facebook.com/janoberg.se/videos/10154246791826787/ © 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…
