Exhibition – “China, the US and Mona Lisa”

Exhibition – “China, the US and Mona Lisa”

On Good Friday, my new art photography exhibition - the 26th in my studio - opened. Because of the Corona, only a few people can come and 90+ % of those who are interested in my artworks anyhow live around the globe far away. So what more natural but to create an easy, functioning and [...]

Facetanic or Titanicbook?

Facetanic or Titanicbook?

October 23, 2019 Is this a modern day case example of the Peter Principle? That is, that people tend to rise higher and higher until they rise to the last level - their level of incompetence. Watch Mark Zuckerberg's performance at the U.S. House Financial Services Committee on October 23, 2019, today that is. Quite [...]

Flagdagen 5. september Рflagskib for militærindustrien

5. september 2019 F√łlg mig lige p√• en lille medierejse i det sikkerhedspolitiske Danmark... Under overskriften Derfor flager Danmark p√• DR.dk kan man l√¶se om denne dag, der samler folket og det officielle Danmark om krigens ofre.

Establish an International Tribunal or Commission on the International War In Syria

It's time - long ago - to establish an International Tribunal/Commission on the Entire International War In Syria. Jan Oberg Comment You should be sick and tired of blame game around selected events and misuse of international law in Syria. I am! Process instead the entire war and give justice and reconciliation to the Syrian [...]

Forsvarsforliget 2017 – ti positive punkter

Modsat hvad stort set alle politikere og medier - og ogs√• forsvarseksperter - synes at tro handler forsvar ikke kun om v√•ben, soldater og budgetter. Det f√•r man et klart indtryk af ved pr√¶sentationen i dag af regeringens opl√¶g. I vort komplekse samfund og den globaliserende verden h√łrer tanken om at forsvar, sikkerhed og - [...]

Aljazeera’s explanation of Syria and its commenting policy

Wrote a comment this morning under its explanation - in film and text - of the Syrian war here: Then waited the whole day only to find that Aljazeera's moderator must have decided that it wasn't worthy being published.* Here it is: "When we try understand a war it is very important to distinguish between [...]

Snak om Syrien på en måde der fremmer fred!

En "meta"-kommentar i Arbejderen til den d√łdf√łdte m√•de man diskuterer konflikter p√•, is√¶r Syrien. Diskursen kommer aldrig frem til at sige noget v√¶sentligt om fred - og den gavner ingen i Syrien, mindst af alt de uskyldige, der lider frygteligt i disse √•r. Man kan faktisk snakke om tingene p√• en anden m√•de. Se h√©r! (Kommentar [...]

Anvender DR og DIIS screening?

Hvis ikke hvorfor er alsidighed s√• oph√łrt p√• udenrigspolitikkens omr√•de? DR's d√¶kning af forsvar, sikkerhed og udenrigspolitik b√łr diskuteres langt mere Der skal nok v√¶re nogen, der tror at jeg har f√•et DR p√• hjernen. Men jeg skriver ofte - og ugerne - om DR's behandling af forsvars-, sikkerheds- og udenrigspolitikken fordi det: a) handler [...]

Will Ukraine hold referendum on NATO membership?

Commenting on news that President Poroshenko intends to hold a referendum on NATO membership for Ukraine now he feels sure that a majority of the Ukrainians want that. However, if you look up the poll from November 2016 you'll find that it was made by a Ukrainian research institute "on behalf of the US-based International Republican [...]

On the Syria ceasefire talks in Astana

There are strong reasons to be sceptical; there has been no interest in peaceful solutions to Syria's problems since the violence broke out in 2011. Hard to see what a trilateral monitoring can do without a UN or similar presence on the ground. What if you monitor a ceasefire violation and can do nothing about it? [...]

A courageous US politician in Syria

May I alert you to what Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard (D) has to say after her visit - with former peace presidential candidate, Dennis Kucinich (D) - to Damascus and Aleppo. In six minutes she says what must be said and fends off CNN's mean attempt to frame her instead of listening to what she says. [...]

Better ways of making peace

A 32 min interview with US-based Naskah Zada on her Middle East show. It was recorded in November 2016 and thus talks about "if" Trump wins. Now we know. Although focusing on a concrete themes and conflicts, it also summarises a few of the things I believe in and try to promote at the more principled, [...]

To my extended family of peace

Very dear friends - social and otherwise! You've humbled and touched me so much on my 66th birthday, January 13, 2016. In spite of Facebook having serious troubles that very day - I received more almost 800 greetings from so many corners of the world mainly through Facebook, other social media, chats, mails, Skype, and sms [...]

Danskere på Facebook advarede mod alt der skete i Syrien og foreslog alternativer 2012

Nedenfor gengives et √Öbent Brev til Villy S√łvndal fra februar 2012. Her er baggrunden for at jeg finder det vigtigt at gengive det idag 5 √•r senere og efter Aleppos befrielse.
