Danmark militariseres yderligere

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 […]

Ikke-dømte krigsforbrydere hjælper kollega Fogh Rasmussen med at forsvare demokratiet

  Så er Anders Fogh Rasmussen ude igen – denne gang med Alliance for Demokrati.

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 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

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 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.
