North Korea’s bomb test hysteria

Here media hysteria goes again. This is BBC. It is very difficult to know what has happened. The media and many governments around the world immediately condemn this test. The EU says it is against UN Security Council resolutions - a council consisting exclusively of much stronger, nuclear powers. Before we get carried away, it should…

Don’t underestimate Donald Trump

Don't underestimate him, count him out or think he is crazy. NBC’s “Meet the Press” half-hour interview with Donald Trump is interesting. He has passion and a very fast mind, he seems to have integrity in the sense that he cannot be bought for money by others and he doesn't mind having standpoints that conservative republicans…

Burundi’s crisis: Complacency, inaction or racism – or all of it?

There is no end, it seems, to diplomats and government representatives who "express concern", appeal, urge the parties to show restraint, warn, condemn etc. All words, no deeds. European leaders reaction is basically silence - while 16 Europeans killed in the office of Charlie Hebdo made them walk arms in arm in Paris. When I…

Militarism, taxpayer money for war planning and lack of democracy

My deeply concerned wake-up call to YOU! Please share and spread further! NATO's military leader is like a man given a scalpel to perform surgery without ever having opened a book on medicine. Taxpayers pay for getting less and less secure and risking war in Europe. These military elites have no democratic mandate - be…

Hvordan Danmark blev en krigsførende nation

Trykt i tidsskriftet Ræson 4/14 I politisk forstand eksisterer det Danmark jeg voksede op i ikke mere. Det var et land hvor man i rimeligt omfang troede på humanisme, på retfærdighed, ligeberettigelse, velfærdsstat og på at snakke om tingene. Selvom vi var med i NATO så skulle konflikter løses i overensstemmelse med folkeretten og ved…

Hvad skal Danmark med kampfly?

Der findes bedre argumenter imod end for. De officielle argumenter holder i hvert fald ikke. Og i det hele taget handler en informeret debat i et demokrati absolut ikke bare om hvilket kampfly, vi skal have. "Opinionen. Magasinet med tværkulturel kant" har lavet et længere interview om disse ting og om hvad dansk udenrigspolitik også…

Behind every refugee stands an arms trader

It would be good if we could address the reasons why refugees come from Africa to Europe. It's difficult to do anything serious about the problems - and avoid terrible human suffering like those we have just witnessed - if nobody bothers to talk about root causes and believe that the solution is just to…

Yemen – the mainstream narrative is grossly misleading

TFF PressInfo # 317 - My introduction to four important articles by TFF Associates on the conflict and violence in Yemen.

The links between refugees and war

It's our wars, stupid! A short interview on Russia Today about Europe's woefully inadequate understanding of why refugees come here. Towards a solution: Deal with conflicts early and by peaceful means, criminalise arms trade and abolish war and you've solved most of the world's refugee problems! Interview on YouTube with RT International (700 million viewers…

Behind every refugee stands an arms trader

This sunny Sunday morning, we wake up to yet another human catastrophe in the Mediterranean. The earlier ones have not caught much media attention - imagine if these had been luxury cruise ships with white Europeans and Americans. I listened carefully to the presenter at AlJazeera in this report Hundreds feared dead as boat capsizes…

Valentina Lisitsa

Valentina Lisitsa - YouTube The world class pianist barred from playing with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra because of her tweets about the Ukraine conflict. As if that had anything to do with her art. Shame on Toronto Phony! With suppression of such art by a Western cultural institution we are all doomed! And where are…

Længe leve gammeldagsen

Skal man tro Rune Lykkeberg i Politiken men det skal man jo ikke nødvendigvis så mistede Rifbjerg faktisk grebet..."Derfor blev opgøret med velfærdsstatens pædagogik og kultursyn også til et opgør med Klaus Rifbjerg, der fastholdt sine gamle standpunkter som svar til alle kritikere og insisterede på, at humoren, legen, kunsten og seksualiteten var argumenter for…

Comments to Charles Krauthammer, Washington Post

Today Charles Krauhammer - a well-known extreme rightist usually advocating war - writes in the Washington Post under the headline "The Iran deal: The anatomy of a disaster". My comments under the article goes: The day Mr. Krauthammer will write about • sanctions on Israel for its nuclear weapons and international law violations; • anytime/anywhere…

Comment to Israel’s defence minister in Washington Post

Israel's defence minister Moshe Ya'alon writes in Washington Post under the headline "Current Iran framework will make war more likely" When I wrote my comment there were already more than 1100 comments - so here it is: "Israel's defence minister is an echo of PM Netanyahu. Nothing new, Israel's official views are well-known, beamed out…

Yet another attack by Zionists on academic freedom

Medialens tells us that the Zionist lobby does it again! Are we surprised? Oh yes, when was it last all Western leaders praised freedom of expression by walking through Paris? Will even one of them now stand up and demand that this conference be held anyhow? What is it the West's academic community boats about…

Isn’t it time to boycott pro-Zionist media?

Listen very carefully to the eloquent PM Netanyahu here again giving it full blast thanks to CNN in an interview in which he (again) says nothing new. Why - just why - is his views given coverage again and again and again in Western media? Does the Iranian or other P5+1 get anywhere near the…

Iran nuclear deal – a road to peace

Jan Oberg commenting on Iranian President Rouhani: "Tehran abides by commitments, if P5 1 fulfills promises" - YouTube/PressTV http://ow.ly/LbX3d In spite of the deal's negative sides, Iran has chosen peace to the benefit of the world. In that perspective it is much more than a nuclear deal, it's - potentially - a road to peace.

Russisk og dansk propaganda – statslige og statslige medier…

Deadline - DR om russisk propaganda - og kun dén. Indslaget er et glimrende eksempel på hvor statsmagten og formodede frie medier taler sammen på en helt indforstået måde. Der spørges ikke om hvad propaganda er i ministerens mund; det nævnes ikke at propganda også kan være fortielse. Det er helt indforstået at vi i…

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…

P1 Debats politiske tilrettelæggelse omkring missilforsvaret

De fleste mennesker, der lytter til radio eller ser TV, tænker næppe så meget over hvad der også kunne være foregået og med hvilke deltagere. De ser et færdigt produkt, ikke processen - og de tager, nok så forståeligt, stilling til det de ser og hører snarere end til noget andet, de i en forestillingsverden…
