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 a discussion of what is morally defensible in this case, even assuming for the sake of argument that President al-Assad is the worst guy on earth.

Why isn’t there – after so many years and so much human suffering and destruction?

We need a very different discourse about Syria – ASAP.


Konfliktanalyse og fred i Syrien

Frederikhavns Lokalradio ved den utrættelige, humanistiske Arne Hansen:

Hør den erfarne fredsforsker Jan Øbergs råd til alle interesseret i at skabe fred og afspænding. Stormagterne har kompromitteret sig mht. Syrien historisk og aktuelt.

Også derfor må vi i stedet styrke FN til at indsætte hundrede til halvanden hundrede tusind mand til neutralt at afvæbne alle der har våben og så må FN tage initiativ til at føre konsultative dialoger med krigsparterne i Syrien som skal munde ud i en fredskonference med alle parter også og ikke mindst fra det syriske civilsamfund…

Der er ingen militær trussel mod Danmark – medmindre vi selv er med til at skabe dem. (sendt i FLR-DIALOG d. 16. maj 2017)

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 1989.

I also say a bit about what we need instead of what I now call the North Atlantic Treaty Outdated.

I feel very strongly about this. So if you like I am very grateful if you also share this post where you can. Thanks.

Iran on nuclear deal and nuclear-free Middle East


I had the pleasure and honour to comment on the Iranian defence minister’s views on the nuclear deal, on a nuclear-free Middle East, terrorism and more.

The US/NATO confrontation with Russia is dangerous

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!

The Meaninglessness of War: Aleppo

Here my 6th photo series from Aleppo – hashtag #keepfocusonaleppo.

Lund, Sweden – March 24, 2017


Can the almost total destruction of Eastern Aleppo be used constructively?

Only if we are willing to ask and dialogue about this:

• Why does the world go on investing US$ 2000 billion annually in warfare and US$ 30 in all the UN does – only to create destruction of people, places, past and future?

How absurd, how meaningless – indeed how far must it go to destroy the West itself – before we learn to conflict intelligently?

I’ve see much destruction during my work in conflict zones the last 25 years. But nothing Continue reading
