24. maj 2020 For nogle dage siden publicerede jeg et video-interview p√• vor stiftelses hjemmeside - ‚ÄúAmerica exists today to make war. How else do we interpret‚Ķ?‚ÄĚ med en h√łjtst√•ende, nu pensioneret, amerikansk oberst, Lawrence Wilkerson - gjort af Amy Goodman p√• det amerikanske online medie, Democracy Now!

Gr√łnland: Konflikt med USA

Gr√łnland: Konflikt med USA

30. september 2019 Jeg falder h√©r til morgen over en fremragende artikel af konsulent og cand.polit. Ulrik Tarp Jensen med den pikante overskrift "S√•dan smider USA danskerne ud af Gr√łnland." Det er ganske vist tankespind eller scenarieskrivning - men givetvis ikke mere end at fremtiden meget vel kan komme til at forme sig ungef√§r som [...]

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 [...]

Peace illiteracy

Peace illiteracy

And why I am switching balances from the most noble and important - but momentarily meaningless - job to something more rewarding... February 1, 2019 Just yesterday, I posted this extremely important and modest appeal - the Basel Appeal - on our foundation's homepage, The Transnational, here. It was disseminated to social media, among others, [...]

Why NATO is obsolete – some arguments

Jan Oberg comments on NATO and the need for a much larger citizens-taxpayers movement against militarism since, for almost 70 years since 1949, NATO has failed miserably in creating the peace it says it aims at. In addition it is systematically violating its Treaty.

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.

Ved Niels Helveg Petersens d√łd

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 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 [...]

Svenska försvarsmaktens desinformation

F√∂rsvarsminister Peter Hultqvist och √ĖB Micael Byd√©n skriver p√• DN Debatt om "Risk f√∂r desinformation om milit√§r√∂vningen Aurora" Och det √§r d√• just vad de sj√§lva sysslar med. Inte ett ord om att det kr√§vs tv√• till att konflikta med varandra. Inte ett ord om NATO:s expansion stick i st√§v med givna l√∂ften till Gorbachev. [...]

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.

The US/NATO confrontation with Russia is dangerous

TFF LiveApril 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!

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% [...]

As we move into the new year – 2017

The old years went - in as little a time as it takes to turn around and see who is tapping you on your shoulder. And it is the new, the next year. I hope it will pass too - in as little time as it takes for me to turn my head and look forward [...]

“Shadow World” – on your tax money

I've felt deeply touched by Johan Grimonprez' brilliant and frightening documentary "Shadow World" which is based on Andrew Feinstein's book with the same name. I want to share it with my readers and here is all about the book and the movie. It was shown in November 2016 by Swedish Television with Swedish text but is due to [...]

NATO-Russia games

October 26, 2016 Yet another example of how tension build up in this New Cold War situation - instead of doing what we did during the first Cold War: trying confidence-building measures. Today too BBC announced that the US will deploy - permanently - 300 US soldiers to norther Norway, a break with Norway's policies [...]
