Photo - Girl in the Jibrin reception center in Aleppo, December 2016 ¬© Oberg PhotoGraphics ‚Źį WAKE-UP CALL Eastern Aleppo was liberated four years ago, in mid-December 2016. Silence today.

Vil USA lade Tyrkiet tabe en krig mod Syrien og Rusland?

Vil USA lade Tyrkiet tabe en krig mod Syrien og Rusland?

25. marts 2020 For nogle dage siden publicerede tidsskriftet Ræson min artikel om det, der sker i Syrien i denne tid - især mulige scenarier for hvad der vil ske hvis Tyrkiet fortsætter sin aggression mod Syrien og verden ser væk. Den giver også en anden baggrund til konflikten end stort set alle andre og [...]

Tyrkiet forbryder sig mod FN og folkeretten

Tyrkiet forbryder sig mod FN og folkeretten

3. marts 2020 Tak til Arbejderen og Anders Fenger for at man fokuserer p√• og st√łtter at folkeretten og FN-Pagten - der tr√¶des under fode af alle regeringer, hotheads og ukyndige - er vigtig. Det er fortvivlende f√• medier, der har denne holdning. FN-Pagten er det mest gandhianske dokument menneskeheden har. Uden folkeretten, FN og [...]

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 [...]

Syria – two perspectives illustrated

"The Debate" of April 16, 2017 on Iran's PressTV between Richard Millett and myself is important to me. I think it will be for you too in the sense of clarifying two approaches and positions on Syria. Its focus is on the difference in media coverage of the terrible events in Khan Seykhoun and al-Rashideen [...]

The little girl from Eastern Aleppo

New year's night, January 1, 2017 This girl had come out of Eastern Aleppo after four dark years of occupation by Western-backed terrorists - too many to name. People who for no reason had destroyed her home, her part of that beautiful city. Perhaps half of her life living in fear, perhaps having lost family members. [...]

Imagine a Middle East with no weapons!

Here a few comments on Erdogan's recent attack on the West for supplying arms to the Kurds. Funny that Turkey's president should accuse someone else for weaponizing a conflict. At the same time as Turkey does it and is also involved in two wars outside itself - Iraq and Syria - and one inside against [...]

Turkey’s coup – Another example of the West’s disintegration

Here is my take on the July 15 coup in Turkey - why it happened the way it did and what is the least unlikely hypothesis - followed by some examples of regional and international consequences this coup is bound to have. And it ends: NATO comes across as a very tired alliance that should [...]

Tyrkiet viser, hvordan de vestlige landes verden er i opbrud

22. juli 2016, publiceret i R√¶son NATO er en gennemtr√¶t alliance. Og den konfliktfyldte fremtid for den store allierede Tyrkiet √łger problemerne b√•de for NATO og EU, n√•r det g√¶lder flygtningene og krigen mod IS. Kommentar af Jan √ėberg Kuppet i Tyrkiet er noget af en g√•de, en begivenhed fuld af paradokser. Det vil have [...]
