What if? Talks on migration. A series of video essays

3. marts 2020 Hvad vil der ske hvis al ind- og udvandring blev givet fri - worldwide? I posten med den overskrift skrev jeg om den århusianske kunster, Gudrun Steen-Andersens, fascinerende kreative Perpetuum Mobile-projekt tilbage i juli 2019. Det er en video-essay baseret installation hvor hun har bedt en række forskellige eksperter om at reagere…

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…

Denmark’s Prime Minister admires a killing soldier’s simplistic view of good and evil

April 11, 2019 It’s Friday, April 5, 2019, at 9 PM. An entertaining talk show, “Skavlan”. A dialogue between a prime minister and a special forces soldier who has no regret having kicked in doors and “killed a lot” in Afghanistan. He justifies himself by the most primitive and long-ago debunked theory about Good and…

Main creator of terrorism is US war on terror, not terrorists

Jan Oberg Comment A US war game/scenario being reported by The Intercept is pretty revealing for the lack of even the slightest re-thinking of what the Global War On Terror (GWOT) is really all about. The US military's game is about violence-for-violence, tit-for-tat. The main result from this - anti-intellectual - attitude and policy is…

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…

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…

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…

Discussing Trump’s visit to Saudi Arabia

Here I am with my friends Donald, Bibi, Sara and Melania... And speak a little about the stupidity of scapegoating Iran for everything, of giving Saudi Arabia even more weapons - and being bribed by it - of creating the preconditions for more warfare and about the fact that NATO is setting up shop in…

US-Saudi Arabia’s endless militarism

To hit Iran and Syria in the future? Why is Saudi Arabia already the 3rd or 4th largest military spender on earth? The Gulf Cooperation Council 10 times bigger than Iran? Is NATO setting itself up in the Arab world? And why is Denmark's ambassador Ms. Merete Juhl in the United Arab Emirates the main…

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.

Safe zones in Syria – very problematic

Commenting on PressTV after President Erdogan’s and Putin’s meeting on May 3, 2017

May 1: Where are the workers in the struggle for peace? Nowhere it seems!

What foreign policy if the US had no weapons?

Just a thought...
