© Jan Oberg 2021 Lund, Sweden, September 11, 2021 After 20 years, mainstream media still only focus on the suffering of the United States and never on the victims of the response to 9/11: The US Global War On Terror. It's simply disgraceful. Dear friend, There is all reason to commemorate the 2977 fellow human [...]
"Kill, kill, kill for peace...!" (Tuli Kupferberg) Arbejderen er naturligvis den eneste,der mener at den hér slags nyheder også er værd at bringe. Tak for det! Afghanistan - den forudsigelige våben- og krigsfiasko - må da danne et fint bagtæppe til denne messe: Våben er nyttige, neutrale og kan løse alle politiske og samfundsmæssige problemer, [...]
En kommentar og nogle eksempler på hvor galt det står til med Danmarks Radios dækning (1) Det officielle Danmark - danske regeringer, ministre, folketingsmedlemmer og mange andre - er medansvarlig for hver eneste af de forbrydelser og de lidelser, krigen mod Afghanistan har indebåret siden 7. oktober 2001. De er sket efter at Danmark, i [...]
Or - it isn't every day you address several hundred million people The TFF report “The Xinjiang Genocide Determination As Agenda” has reached more people in more countries than virtually anything else we have produced the last few years. That is, outside the West, in Asia in general and in China in particular. All leading [...]
23. januar 2020 Den 3. januar fortalte DR's Mellemøstenkorespondent, Puk Damsgaard, at den iranske "skyggegeneral" Soleimani, der netop var blevet likvideret i Bagdads lufthavn på ordre af præsident Trump selv, havde tusindvis af amerikanske soldaters blod på sine hænder. Klik på linket ovenfor - og så opdager du at jeg skriver tusindvis men at artiklens [...]
Jan Oberg Comment A US war game/scenario being reported by The Intercept is pretty revealing for the lack of even the slightest re-thinking of what the Global War On Terror (GWOT) is really all about. The US military's game is about violence-for-violence, tit-for-tat. The main result from this - anti-intellectual - attitude and policy is [...]
I read dozens of articles every day about various conflict zones, commentaries, war reports and - the few times it happens - possibilities of peace. I read about Syria in particular as I have since I visited Damascus and Aleppo in December 2016. It's important that one does not, over time, develop the disease called [...]
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 [...]
"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 [...]
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 [...]
Just a thought...
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 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 [...]
TFF LiveApril 12, 2017 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! https://www.facebook.com/obergpeace.artphotographics/videos/204607170030638/

By Jan Oberg I shot this simple video out of the window on December 13, 2016. I wonder about Aleppo and say #keepfocusonaleppo https://www.facebook.com/janoberg.se/videos/10154246791826787/ © Jan Oberg 2016 Here in the Sheikh Najjar Industrial City outside Aleppo lived and worked 40,000 people. It had 50% of Syria's industrial capacity. Today - after the occupation by [...]
Human rights is not my field but we have to speak up against Trump's personal endorsement of it. This is nothing new, the US has used it all the time. But isn’t it tragic that almost 70 years after torture was prohibited in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, we see 141 countries still using [...]
Commenting with David Swanson, leading and sharp peace intellectual, on the inauguration of Trump - also about the legacy of Barrack Obama. For Iran's international PressTV. Posted on TFF's blog.
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. [...]
Last night I had the opportunity to discuss nuclear weapons with an experienced, high-ranking security analyst who has been both a military, a scholar, an assistant secretary of defence, presidential adviser, a corporate man and now a think tank member, Lawrence J. Korb. We were discussing the issues touched upon in this and this article. I would [...]
