29. januar 2019 DR kan i dag fortælle os at Trump har gjort indtryk: Forsvarsbudgettet øges med 4,5 milliarder kroner: Med tillægsaftalen bruger Danmark 1,5 procent af BNP på Forsvaret. Læs den selv. Det fremgår blandt andet at det er det stærke trumpske pres på Europa, der har fået forsvarsministeren til at arbejde for dette. Og man forstår at det […]
Så er Anders Fogh Rasmussen ude igen – denne gang med Alliance for Demokrati. Man husker ham nok så meget for at “der er ikke noget at komme efter” og for at nedlægge freds- og andre forskningsinstitutter så der ikke skulle være noget intellektuelt modspil. Og for at han er rådgiver for f.eks. en super-demokrat som Ukraines præsident Porochenko, […]
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.
“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 after. Undoubtedly, we are at a turning point in these relations in general and for the NATO alliance in particular. To discuss these issues – past, present and future perspectives – were Jim Walsh, senior research associate at MIT’s Security Studies Program, Massachusetts, and Jan Oberg, director of TFF, Lund. Thanks to PressTV’s excellently structured program and interviewer we touched upon a series of aspects and dimensions around which we found both agreements and slight disagreements – all in a sober tone fit for public education and personal reflection. We hope this debate will stimulate your own thoughts about the future of war, security and peace. We’d be grateful for your sharing it to media people, students and other academics as well as to decision-makers in the field that you may know. See it here – The Debate
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 the Warsaw Pact dissolved in […]
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 Kuwait and there are plans to have a Gulf NATO – something you can read much more about in my analysis Trump in Riyadh – A Gulf NATO to gang up against Iran and Syria. It’s a TFF PressInfo and you can subscribe to them too so they wing into your mailbox – very irregularly and not too often… write to PI@transnational.org – and they are free of course and many of the best things in life.
Försvarsminister Peter Hultqvist och ÖB Micael Bydén skriver på DN Debatt om “Risk för desinformation om militärövningen Aurora” Och det är då just vad de själva sysslar med. Inte ett ord om att det krävs två till att konflikta med varandra. Inte ett ord om NATO:s expansion stick i stäv med givna löften till Gorbachev. Inte ett ord om den […]
